Hi, guys. How are you? I am very well, thanks.
Well, I'd like to ask you about how to study JavaScript.
I nearly knew nothing about it.
Now I really really want to study it from scrach.
At my school, I found a couple of DHTML book, which was written in 1997.
I cannot find any others. It is hopeless. I went to public libary. Even worse.
My town has got so far behind from new technology. Never mind.

Would you know any good web site? I have been seeing www.w3schools.com .
But it doesn't say about much, does it? I mean I want to learn from basic concept as well as touching a lot of examples.

Please give me your opinion.

Cya.

See if you can get a copy of JavaScript: The Definitive Guide. The latest edition is the fourth, I think, so look for that. I learned from the third edition and it's really good. You might want to see if you can get it from the library at first, though, since it could end up being too difficult depending on your prior programming experience.

have you checked out http://www.oreillynet.com ? It is a fantastic source. If you have some money to spend look into the Safari bookshelf(good stuff and lots of it).

another good source is
http://developer.apple.com/cgi-bin/search.pl?&q=javascript&num=10&ie=utf8&oe=utf8&lr=lang_en&simp=1
don't be put off by the Apple name, lots of great stuff there. Many of the articles are written by the author of "Dynamic HTML, the Definitive Guide" (Danny Goodman)

happy coding!!!!

When I was learning JS, or whenever I've learned something new I've read it from a book, and I've found most better written self teach yourself books are in the form of tutorials and explaining code segments, so its more like reading a novel or something rather than a sit down and study cram night before an exam or anything. Infact I usually just read the source code to figure out how its suppose to go, which is very easy to do with JS. There are loads of js code snippet pages, read em and see how they work, then try and replicate it.

-Javascript tutorial at howtocreate.co.uk.
-Javascript learning center.
-The webteacher javascript course
-Javascript primers
I don't know how up to date these ^^^^^ courses are but they might be a good help anyway.

The javascript pages from ppk are a very good resource. Look for the w3c compatibilty and the css2 pages as well.
Offcourse there are ton's off javascript tutorials but they are not always up to date or don't cover much material.
Finally you can read the Manuals (look for javascript 1.5)
good luck.

Thanks a lot! Rinswind!
That is heaps, isn't it? Many many thanks.
Actually I found good one from one of my tutors.
He is a programmer. Last year he taught javascript.
I missed it.
Never mind. At that time I knew nothig about programming even simple HTML.
So now it is good time to move on.
I will dig in javascript this term.
Hopefully see you in this forum.
Cya.

Agree with Slime. Buy JavaScript: The Definitive Guide, 4th Edition by David Flanagan.
