JavaScript Quirks Got You Down? Check out JavaScript Garden

“JavaScript Garden is a growing collection of documentation about the most quirky parts of the JavaScript programming language,” reads the introduction of the JavaScript Garden website. “It gives advice to avoid common mistakes, subtle bugs, as well as performance issues and bad practices that non-expert JavaScript programmers may encounter on their endeavours into the depths of the language.”

JavaScript Garden is not a JavaScript tutorial – knowledge of JavaScript is recommended.

JavaScript Garden is divided into six sections:

  • Objects
  • Functions
  • Arrays
  • Types
  • Core
  • Other

It was compared on Hacker News to Douglas Cockford’s JavaScript: The Good Parts. Obviously it’s not as in-depth as that book, but it could serve as a handier and more up-to-date reference.

For more advanced JavaScript reference, check out the Learning Advanced JavaScript tutorial. It’s the foundation of the forthcoming book Secrets of the JavaScript Ninja.
