My new book "Build Intelligent Systems with JavaScript"

Originally published April 12, 2014

I have been working on this book since last summer. You can get more information here.

In some sense I wrote this book for my own requirements. I the last 20+ years I have written information processing systems in Common Lisp, Java, Clojure, and Ruby. Last year I became interested in JavaScript largely because of web frameworks like Express.js and Meteor.js. I then started hacking on some of the same types of problems that I used to use Lisp languages for, and enjoyed using JavaScript.

I started writing small snippets of code in JavaScript for accessing data stores, doing simple NLP, and general information processing. While I was motivated by my own projects I also thought that other people might find the material useful.
