Anyone here work JS? I had just taken up the hobby last week. I hear that, supposedly, it is "easy to learn". My first programing language I actually (Well... somewhat) understand compared to my try at C++. I think that was too big of a step to start out with. *sigh* I never knew it could take so much dedication to do something you always wanted to do. I'm quite impressed with anyone that knows how to program. I always find myself scratching me head, getting frustrated, then giving up. It hurts to see (To me anyway) everyone succeeding and I failing. *tsk tsk* But I'm determined to get this tackled? and stick with it! I see a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, so to speak.

I've done a little Javascript ? just little bits of active web stuff, nothing big. It is probably a good place to start because it doesn't have all the type declarations and stuff that are a bit confusing when you start out. I'm sure there are good online tutorials and so on; Google is probably your friend here!

Yeah, Google can prove to be very helpful. I am picking it up bit by bit. I do also want to get a couple books on JS. So far so good :D ! I also hope to go to college to learn advanced programming. I'm hoping that'll help me out allot... though some people say they even have gone to college and have found teaching themselves more helpful.

Because Web pages aren't made of HTML alone, JavaScript provides access to more than just HTML objects. JavaScript also provides access to browser- and platform-specific objects. Browser plug-ins (such as RealPlayer and Adobe Acrobat), the name and version of a particular viewer's browser, and the current date are all examples of non-HTML objects that you can work with by using JavaScript.
