This course that you see above has helped me, and many of my friends to get our feet wet with the language, and the amount of support you get in the hidden forum (you get access to it once you signup for the course) is incredible, people (and the instructor) are being really helpful and understanding.
The author says that this book is perfect for those who’re making their transition from a static development environment, to a more real-time approach, though keep in mind that it’s perfectly find to be studied by someone who’s totally new to the language.
This is a book about getting computers to do what you want them to do. Computers are about as common as screwdrivers today, but contain a lot more hidden complexity, and thus are harder to operate and understand. To many, they remain alien, slightly threatening things.
The examples and explanations of what certain things do are top-class.
Unfortunately, this book has had updates since the original publication, and the current version of the free copy does not reflect the latest release, however – because of the technicality and depth of the knowledge contained within this book, I feel it still has to be kept as a reference for future work.
It’s a learning resource within a learning resource, epic! Yeah, this page is packed full of information, examples, tutorials, reading materials and much more. All the good stuff to help you accelerate your learning progress, the page was built to provide beginner developers with a one-stop resource for learning JS wherever they are.
It seems that the information is being pulled from the Mozilla Developer Network – which makes it up-to-date and verified – but is displayed in a more easy to read manner.
ECMAScript 6 is approaching a release date, some say we should expect it somewhere mid-Summer 2015, whatever the release date; it’s already making itself known around the web developer and web designer communities. This book will help you transfer from ECMAScript 5 to ECMAScript 6 without any hesitation.
The book is hardly complete, but at least we’ve got someone taking care of the transition, and we can only help by showing support! Definitely keep it in the bookmarks, and as the release date begins to approach – starting reading up on what’s new and exciting.
You play a game, and perform actions based on the code that you’re writing. Everything is explained on every step of the way, and you get plenty of downtime to observe, play around and understand the code that you’re writing. It’s like a visual documentation of the JS language. Try it out!
You’re more than welcome to suggest your own unique articles, books and research papers that could help beginners to accelerate their progress. I’ve come to realize that books on programming can be very expensive, and not everyone wants to deal with secondhand material. It’s just the way things are.
