The Google Visualization API offers a unified way for developers to deliver visual analysis and provides a rich set of graphic and charting components to handle the majority of visualization scenarios.

a new Javascript article published on DevX.com


I have published a new article on the programming portal DevX.com , related to Javascript. Here is the synopsis for the article: “Characterized by some dubious design decisions, ambiguous syntax rules, and a troubled history, JavaScript could have been dismissed as a second-class scripting language useful only for animating web pages. However, JavaScript has matured into one of the most ubiquitous and pervasive programming languages today, currently powering complex and highly interactive web applications. With JavaScript so widely distributed and so closely tied to the user experience, JavaScript skills are mandatory if you develop web applications nowadays”.
