    I want to learn javascript. Anybody knows a cool way to do it? Or a clear way? should I start reading a book about it?

    Some steps maybe...

    Hope I posted this were it belongs.

    Visit W3schools. They have some pretty simple javascript examples there.

    Fuck no!

    Code:

    Tizag.com is pretty cool, but other than that I'm not sure as I don't really know it myself yet.

    W3schools is alright for someone starting out with JS.

    Thanks for the info on Tizag, never even heard of the website before. W3schools only demonstrates simple JS functionality good for a newbie to JS.

    Start with this: http://eloquentjavascript.net/ (free)
    Then read the wonderful "Javascript The Good Parts"
    (http://www.amazon.com/dp/0596517742) by Crockford.

    Do not get your education from w3schools, its gonna fuck up your fundamental understanding of javascript and it will be bad and you will make horrible mistakes and the world will laugh at your horrible code.

    Try codecademy (google it, can't post links) it's where I learned javascript and it beats w3schools easily.

    When I learn a new language I find myself a reference site (for HTML I used W3Schools) and a good way to test the code. X10 Hosting has free hosting with a cPanel, so I would check that out. Another good place I have used is CodeAcademy.

    I taught it myself by first using jQuery and then trying to do the same without libraries. If you're the one who prefers learning-by-doing, that might be a way to go.
    Good luck!

    hi..
    I recommend you to use CodeAcademy. I have used is CodeAcademy and W3school..but W3school demonstrates simple functionality.and you can also use js learning centers...it will help you.

    if you want to test your code without buying hosting... there's always the JSFiddle option. it's a real time online javascript IDE
    Look it up: http://jsfiddle.net/

    I've also started JS learning lately, although not so intense yet. I would definitely recommend Lynda video's (easy to find on TPB if you don't wanna pay). Then later when you start coding, reach out to Stackoverflow & W3 schools for specific help.
