You Don't Know JS: Up & Going

No matter how much experience you have with JavaScript, odds are you don't fully understand the language. This compact guide serves as an introduction to the "You Don't Know JS" series, which dives into trickier parts of the language that many JavaScript programmers simply avoid-or use incorrectly. In this compact guide, author Kyle Simpson explains basic JavaScript language concepts and shows developers how to take advantage of them, while exposing various misconceptions. Perfect for programmers who aren't familiar with JavaScript, this book helps you to get the most out of other books in the series-and guides you toward true JavaScript mastery.

Mastering Excel Macros: Introduction (Book 1)

Excel macros. Everybody wants to learn them. You're not a programmer though. How is a non technical user going to learn how to program? You do want to use macros to make your work easier but are you really going to sit down with a huge programming textbook and work your way through every. single. boring. page? Like most people, you'll start with great enthusiasm and vigor but after a few chapters, the novelty wears off. It gets boring.

I'm going to try and change that and make learning macro programming entertaining and accessible to non-techies. First of all, programming Excel macros is a huge topic. Let's eat the elephant one bite at a time. Instead of sitting down with a dry, heavy text, you will read very focused, to the point topics. You can then immediately use what you learned in the real world.

This is the first lesson in the series. You will learn what macros are, how to access them, a tiny bit of programming theory (just so you have a clue as to what's going on) and how to record macros. As with all my other lessons, this one has a follow along workbook that you can use to work through the exercises.

The images in the lessons are based on Excel 2013 for Windows.

An Introduction to APIs

Have you ever wondered how Facebook is able to automatically display your Instagram photos? How about how Evernote syncs notes between your computer and smartphone? If so, then it's time to get excited!

In this book, we walk you through what it takes for companies to link their systems together. We start off easy, defining some of the tech lingo you may have heard before, but didn't fully understand. From there, each lesson introduces something new, slowly building up to the point where you are confident about what an API is and, for the brave, could actually take a stab at using one.
