Looking to Level Up, Designer’s Attention Span

  • # March 1, 2013 at 2:43 am

    OK so I’ve been looking for good and engaging sources of javascript learning on the web. Anything that has good exercises or use cases would do, but if it’s a book, pretty pictures and colors couldn’t hurt – this is after I’ve already spent a full day working or doing school, so I’ll have the attention of a 5 year old.

    Still, leveling up is important. Any good suggestions out there?

    If not, we need to get on that.

    As just a tad more background, I’m comfortable with beginning Javascript, and most intermediate classes/tutorials/books bore me… right up until I get to events and event binding. Basically, the stuff that is SO easy to do with jQuery seems like a wall to me in Javascript.

    I’ve been having a hard time finding practical methods to scale this part of the learning cliff.

    Free, and interactive: http://www.codecademy.com/

    Thanks for the recommendation, but I’ve checked that out. Doesn’t seem to handle anything more complicated than basic arrays… doesn’t even get close to event handling.

    im finding http://codeschool.com to be an excellent resource once you get passed the basics.

    they dont have a dedicated javascript course yet but they dig pretty deep into backbone, and jquery.

    also, check out http://eloquentjavascript.net/
