JavaScript is arguably the most polarizing and misunderstood programming language in the world. Many have attempted to replace it as the language of the Web, but JavaScript has survived, evolved, and thrived. Why did a language created in such hurry succeed where others failed?

This guide gives you a rare glimpse into JavaScript from people intimately familiar with it. Chapters contributed by domain experts such as Jacob Thornton, Ariya Hidayat, and Sara Chipps show what they love about their favorite language—whether it’s turning the most feared features into useful tools, or how JavaScript can be used for self-expression.

Anton Kovalyov
was born and raised in Tashkent, Uzbekistan. Back in the day, he was mostly writing Python and (re-)compiling Gentoo. In 2008, he moved to the United States where he joined Disqus. Around the same time, he discovered JavaScript and the two have been inseparable ever since. While at Disqus, Anton authored JSHint, a JavaScript linting tool and co-authored Third-Party JavaScript(Manning). After Disqus, Anton moved to Mozilla, where he worked on the Firefox Developer Tools team.

Today, Anton works at Medium and lives in Oakland, CA.
