Give JavaScript another look

So recently I've been working with JavaScript, which I have little experience in.Mostly I just go ahead Google "thing I need to do" + JavaScript.

I've decided to change that and really learn a bit about the language. I was surprised to find that JavaScript is a fully object oriented language and is hands down the best language out there to do anything on a web browser that needs user input and to provide a smooth experience (i.e. Ajax etc)

Also the Mozilla Dev Center is a great resource for JavaScript (and a few other web related languages)

So if you haven't already, give JavaScript another look.


  1. Thanks for reminding me
    I had this great plan for a website which has been sitting at the back of my brain for a while. Have to find out about JS and give it a go


  2. Also, don't forget JQuery! JQuery is an awesome framework that really makes working with Javascript much more of a joy than you would think working with pure javascript is.

    Things like "document.getElementByID('x');" becomes $("#x"), posts and Ajax's can be done with one line, etc.
