Home Forums JavaScript anythingSliderFX delay start (not speed) Re: anythingSliderFX delay start (not speed)


Hi Gordon!

I may not be the best person to ask about learning javascript/jQuery, because I’m a learn by example/experimentation kind of person. I am completely self-taught, so I don’t have any college course background in programming. I started learning javascript when I wanted to add functionality to websites, but completely switched over to jQuery when I discovered it. So ask me to write a program to grab a JSON file in pure javascript and you’ll see me stare at you like a deer in headlights; but no problem for me in jQuery. :P

So, if you want better ideas, check out this StackOverflow answer.

I would also recommend looking at other people’s code snippets or even plugins to figure out how something is done. And also, try to troubleshoot problems that other people have on StackOverflow, it will definitely sharpen your skills. If nothing else, someone else’s answer may give you a different perspective.
