JavaScript Guidelines and Best Practice

Very worth reading

Just right

Just right

Writing a program that (somehow)works is not good enough. Else it would be like getting a driving license and declaring that you are an Indy car driver. It requires experience and following certain style guidelines which have been mutually agreed upon by the programming community at large. This has various advantages including readability and portability, among others.

Even though JavaScript has been around since 1995, style guidelines for it are scarce. Too much attention has been paid to creating fancy scripts which can
induce some dynamics effects, however lame they may be. This has resulted in haphazard way of writing scripts with the goal being "just to somehow get the script work ... who cares!" Well, some do.

This article does an excellent job in suggesting JavaScript style of programming. Even the most archaic topics (of personal interest to me) such as security are addressed and various pitfalls have been pointed out.

I would suggest anybody who is
serious about client-side scripting, to go through this work.
