If you’re brand new to JavaScript and want to start from scratch, I’d say that [Codeacademy](!/exercises/0) is a great place to start. They walk you through the fundamentals of JavaScript with a game.

Once you have a grasp of it I’d suggest trying to make a HTML form with a number of required fields and a phone-number field and then write some JavaScript that stops the form from being submitted unless the required fields are filled and the phone-number field is actually a number, not text.

This should give you the grounding to know how to integrate JavaScript into your site and make it work! Then I’d start looking at libraries like jQuery / Dojo as andy_unleash said.

Mostly, just start small, experiment lots and if you don’t want to do exercises, just go straight ahead and build your todo list app. It’ll help heaps.

Hope that helps.
