CodeAcademy doesn’t seem, to me, a great place to start learning a new programming language. It may gave you a little grip, but it doesn’t teach you any context at all and when it comes down to actually creating something, you’ll be lost. I suggest running around on forums, tutorial sites (besides w3schools), and videos. That isn’t to say that you shouldn’t use CodeAcademy, but you should be aware that the basics that they teach you don’t really mean anything.

If you do decide to go the CodeAcademy path (which isn’t a bad choice), start [here](

Once you have a pretty basic grasp on Javascript, check out some of [these]( videos. Don’t overlook them just because they’re long.
