Recommended Reading

To prep for some new interns and hopefully Google Summer of Code projects, I put together a concise list of recommended reading on the technologies used by Cesium developers, e.g., JavaScript, CSS, git, etc.

Given that a number of our users are new to web development, I thought it would be useful to share this list here. Feel free to add to the list, but please only include best-in-class resources. For example, I, of course, know of 100s of resources on graphics development, but I only reference a few to keep the list highly relevant.


Awesome list. I was unfamiliar with a few of these and will definitely be checking them out. Maybe we should rename it to Recommended Resources instead of reading? For example, I think this video: should be a must watch for people writing high-performance JavaScript.

I actually already put a few videos up there without thinking about changing the name. It doesn’t matter to me.


I just saw this site, which also presents a list of articles and videos about how to write JavaScript well:

I haven’t gone through and read all of the linked items yet, but the ones I’ve read so far look like quality resources.
