Learning JavaScript with the Google Maps API

The web application programming interface (API) that allows to embed google maps in web pages is quite simple, if you speak javascript, yet it employs some of the more sophisticated concepts of the language, such as custom objects and closures. So if you don't speak javascript yet, but want to learn it, using the google maps API gives you a head start.

We will walk through the components of the google maps API, emphasizing the javascript language features and their application to the API design as well as discussing the API itself.

Issues include: the language itself, event handling, closures, custom objects.
