Home Forums JavaScript Where to start learning Javascript. Re: Where to start learning Javascript.


@TT_Mark….. you are correct and no one can deny the fact that it is best to start with JavaScript and then move to jQuery.

Having said that, doing cool stuffs in JavaScript requires a very thorough understanding of the language. This ‘thorough understanding’ will take much time and effort and a beginner may loose interest in the language. Whereas learning curve of jQuery is pretty short and cooler stuffs can be done more easily. This will help a newbie to continue learning the framework and remain excited. After learning jQuery in some depth, the newbie will soon find that it is important for him to learn JavaScript as well so as to have a better grip over the language and this time the learning will not take much time because the newbie already understands the concept of how this amazing language works.
