Newbie JavaScript Lessons

Hello all!

I began JavaScript on Codecademy for the first time this week. So far, it seems as though we jumped right into the finer points of this lightweight programming language without having a broader, big picture understanding of JS first. I’ve been googling to get a better grasp and perspective. I came across a couple of resources I found to be helpful:

1. w3schools provides great beginner definitions and explanations in a written tutorial format. They also offer a handy results tab where you can play around with the code you just learned without having to install a text editor of your own.

2. thenewboston YouTube channel. Sure he’s a bit of a brogrammer, but it makes the tutorials more entertaining. Plus, his instructions and explanations are easy to understand and he’s helping me learn JavaScript, so who cares, right?¬†

I’m also seriously considering enrolling in Treehouse. Their fees are quite low and I’m hoping to give them a try for a month and see how it goes. Anyone out there using Treehouse to level up their skills?

Oh, I also got stung by a yellow jacket today. Good times.
