Learning JavaScript (Premium)

Learning JavaScript

I spend a lot of time exploring programming languages. This year, I'm focusing on JavaScript, the language used to create web apps.

JavaScript is controversial for a variety of reasons---it's loosely-typed, for starters, for the developers in the audience---but there's no real avoiding it. Regardless, I feel like JavaScript is about as easy to learn as any programming language can be. And since it's truly universal, you don't need special tools---or a special/expensive kind of computer---to learn the language. In fact, all you need to get started is a web browser. So you could even do this on Chromebook.
