Learning Javascript

In light of the recent thread about Prototype vs. jQuery vs. (vanilla) Javascript this seems like a relevant article http://24ways.org/2013/javascript-taking-off-the-training-wheels/.

I’ve used Codecademy in an earlier attempt to learn Javascript, and found their courses lacking in explanation. They were very exercise-centric, at the cost of not explaining things well enough beforehand. While this works fine for HTML/CSS (it’s where I learned those), it doesn’t work too well for Javascript.

If you want to learn Javascript, I highly recommend CodeSchool (I’m working on Javascript Road Trip 3 as I write).

Read this page, all the way through. It’s an important bit of exposition on teaching absolute newcomers how to program. Particularly read the warning about Copy and Paste.

I think, if anything, that CodeAcademy are hewing to this model of tuition, and you may already know some of what they’re trying to teach you.
