Last year around March or April, because if the lock-down, I bought a good supply of cold, cough, and flu medicine. I was prepared for the worst. I usually get a good supply around September anyway, but I was certain that we would all be getting colds and coughs early this year and we had to be prepared. Last night, as I looked into the medicine cabinet, I realized the boxes were still unopened. We did not have one cough, cold, or flu this whole year. After thinking about it for all of two seconds, I look forward to the days when my friends and family give me a cold that they caught from a friend, and I can take my medicine and be done with it in a few days.

JavaScript Basics: Flinging Event, Element, and Object Bombs at Zombie Heads (Undead Institute)
by John Rhea
Genre: Computers & Technology

FREE for a limited time

Got basic programming skills but are new to JavaScript? Ready to pitch in and save humanity from the zombie hordes? Now you can do both at the same time.

You’ll learn how to work with JavaScript objects, creating and setting properties, defining and using methods and the way objects are used in the Document Object Model (DOM). All while kicking serious zombie tuchus.

Speaking of the DOM you’ll become comfortable working with it, selecting elements out of it, creating elements and adding them to it and removing any apocalyptic elements that might slip through.

Once you have all that under your post-apocalyptic utility belt you’ll then be introduced to events, event handlers and how to utilize them.

By the end of this book you should be ready to manipulate a web page into post-apocalyptic submission (which is like normal submission except it’s, you know, like, after the apocalypse).

How You’ll Learn to Smack Zombies Around

You won’t just passively take in the view, like a zombie shuffling across the mainland. You’ll have plenty of combat practice with analogies, examples, and code tutorials you can build, break and fix again. Working with your hands and your head you’ll craft code that pleases the eye and knocks a zombie into last Tuesday.

All the code and directions are provided as both codepen tutorials and downloadable html files, so you can fight the apocalypse how and where you like. You can work with them on the codepen site or on your own device.

And later you’ll bring those skills together in a final project that cements those skills into zombie smashing muscle memory.

Why Zombies?

Are zombies just a gimmick? Why would this be any better than a straight laced book that sticks to the facts?

Straight laced books are often straight boring. And if you have insomnia problems go buy that book. The author, John, has read the boring books and knows that staying awake and engaged are also important for learning. But this book uses zombie references and analogies not just to make you smile, but to help the material stick. If a tough technical concept is related in silly terms you understand, like a zombie trying to buy gum at a super market, it’s much more likely to stay in that brain those zombies are intent on eating.
