    I’m trying to get a basic understanding of JavaScript for practical use in a web page. I’ve looked at a few tutorials online (ie. but most of the approaches start from, “What is a semi-colon?” and take a very long time to get to a point where you’re actually ‘doing’ something. I much prefer an approach that sets a specific goal, demonstrates the end results, and then works towards it while giving me an understanding of JS along the way. If anyone could point me towards some useful tutorials I would be most grateful. :)



    You should check out CodeAcademy…


    As far as understanding the basics, this is a pretty good site: (I definitely think you should go through that)

    Aside from that, attempt to do something yourself, and google – That’s how I managed to work best.
    Example: Attempt to create an accordion, if you don’t know where to start, google for accordion js/jQuery tutorials.

    I’ve got a couple of jQuery tutorials on my site, if you have any questions or you would like them converted to normal jQuery-less examples, let me know.

    Edit: Oh yes, I remember really wanting to completely grasp this tutorial: – It’s advanced, but it can be a goal thing which you can slowly learn.


    Thanks all :)
