Does anyone here know of any good books that teach you JavaScript language? I'm pretty good with computers/repair but I am a complete noob when it comes to writing code. I'm using a site called www.codingacademy.com to learn through practice, but I need a book that explains it in greater detail. Any suggestions? Thanks

:rolleyes: lol that is nitpicking at small bullshit... and read up on what people had to say about w3fools. That also was written 2 years ago... im sure since then W3 schools fixed anything that isnt a developer argument problem.


Before you try to discredit a source make sure you cant discredit your own.

Small bullshit matters in programming.

On topic - here are some better resources:

I wasn't "discrediting" w3schools - just pointing out they are known for out of date and incorrect information. Which isn't something you should be recommending anyone when there are better resources out there...

You posted a website that is out of date and full of wrong info... lol

W3 schools is a very useful resource for a beginner.

That's only because w3schools modified content that should have been correct in the first place :P

Obviously you have some sort of positive sentiment towards w3schools, and I'm not sure why...but I'd prefer not to argue over this.

OP - Check out the Douglas Crockford video lectures - Crockford on JavaScript: A Public Lecture Series at Yahoo!. I've heard they're good.
