Introduction

Web development industry is a fast-paced industry. New trends, technologies, techniques and APIs pop up now and then and we have to educate ourself to use it. As a web developer, I always reckon it's part of our responsibility or perhaps we need to train it as a habit to keep learning and upgrading ourself and do not satisfy with the status quo. We are meant to explore and discover as many solutions as possible. :)

In this post, I have gathered 6 free javascript ebooks for you! The one that caught my attention is "Essential JavaScript Design Patterns For Beginners", I do learn a few things out of it and I hope this collection will benefit you as well. Have fun reading!
