Not really. Anyway!

I'm a PHP person, I enjoy it, I love it, I caress her late at night when no ones around.
My eye wonders though, I kinda like the look of JS and never *really* messed with it.

Sure I could Google this and get results, but I'd like a personal touch to the question below.

Can you point me to some handy resources to get started in JS?

Thanks!

later

Well, if you're a PHP person you should have no problem with the syntax of JavaScript.

If you want to get started, I suggest you to :

With that you should have enough infos to play for a while.

It's also important to realize that PHP an JS are completely different beasts, and are meant for different purposes (PHP is server-side, JS is client-side: this means you can mix-and-match the two to do all sorts of great stuff).

Have fun!

You'll have absolutely no problem, its an easy language and looks the same as PHP.
Concatenation is done with a + rather than a .
All variables are just "var"s no messing about with int float etc.. they convert easy like PHP too(ie. "1.02" is stored in a var the same as "234", strings are also just var). But it still has features like parseInt() and parseFloat().
Arrays are easier too.
Objects are a little weird (look out for "prototype")
And hold off learning the DOM for a day or two or you'll end up hating the language very quickly learn to do some simple stuff with forms and stuff first(NS2+ stuff), then move on to moving page elements and the like.
Oh also stay away from the eval() method untill you've gotten the hang of how JS works in general.
Use Firefox for its debugger, IEs is crap.

Thanks Hugh, I've saved up on the links and downloads. Starting my lil Javascript library before I get started.

Time is such a wonderful thing, as a kid we have so much it's crazy but as an adult it seems like it goes as quickly as the wind.

Thanks again fellas
