The Question: If I want to start designing websites with fancy things like parallax scrolling, that incorporate some Java to accomplish a task… Where should I start in learning Java, and how to incorporate it into an HTML/CSS website?
Thanks in advance for the responses!June 11, 2012 at 7:19 pm #104248
You might want to check out jQuery. It’s a super simple and easy to learn JS library. (I think that’s the right term, “JS library”)June 11, 2012 at 8:25 pm #104253mweldanMember
I usually start with foundation, such as.. what is a variable.. what is a closure.. what can i do with it.. how to do this and that..
when i feel comfortable.. i jump on library or framework (depend on what i’m on)

The jQuery Documentation is great, and it will probably have almost everything you will need to get started with jQuery! http://docs.jquery.com/Main_Page.
What you can learn from the source of jQuery is really quite astonishing. But beware, at over 9000 lines of code, looking at the jQuery source for the first time can be a little intimidating!

I totally agree with this:
I think it all depends on what you want to do. If you just need to add some flavour to your existing HTML/CSS skills, then jQuery might be all you need. If you want to build robust apps you should definitely be getting a proper foundation down.June 15, 2012 at 12:03 am #104413joshuanhibbertMember
@TheDoc, i can totally see that point you made. If you want to add little touches here and there to add some rich user experience than yeah, jQuery is all that AND a bag of potato chips. And those little touches are very simple to learn (or at least implement).
I know there are plenty of resources around the web, but this place is really nice to get free (good quality) eBooks.June 15, 2012 at 10:13 am #104441Historical Forums UserParticipant
