Why Learn Closure Library?

Javascript is the programming language of the web - it is easy to learn, and it allows to extend the functionality of web pages, it allows to load dynamic data, build interactive functionality and single page applications.

Javascript has challenges that work against developing for the web, like no namespace or dependency mechanism, issues with cross-browser compatibility, no visibility controls for the properties and methods of a class and no type system and no static checking.

Closure Library addresses these challenges. It contains a large set of reusable components, it provides an interesting namespace mechanism, it provides consistent APIs to work with the DOM, user interface components, events, client-server communication, and more. It allows you to write object-oriented JavaScript and simplifies inheritance. It is also is server agnostic and cross browser compatible.
