Ok, I've pretty much got HTML and CSS down...now I want to know how to use Javascript to improve my webpages even more. I need to know a good place to learn javascript...but I can only get on the computer on weekends so i need it to be a place where I can learn it relatively fast. Oh, and it cant be to confusing because I'm 13 :thumbsup:




Any Suggestions?

http://www.w3schools.com/js/

That's the site I learn from, and probably many of the other forum members do aswell.

If you don't like it, there are loads more websites out there, just do a Google (http://google.com) search.

Thanks, thats where I learned my HTML and CSS from...I was just wondering if that was the best site to learn from.

I'd say it's the best, but that's just my opinion.

Check out Javascript Kit (http://www.javascriptkit.com/javatutors/index.shtml) tutorials- most helpful. Also check out their other sections- very cool.

Seek out a used copy of "JavaScript: The Definitive Guide" (http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/jscript4/)- a terrific guide & reference (you don't need the latest edition to learn the basics).

And above all else have fun with the numerous conundrums ahead.

Javascript: A Visual Blueprint (http://www.amazon.co.uk/JavaScript-Visual-Blueprint-Building-Dynamic/dp/0764574973) is a book which I can recommend for relative beginners looking to improve their understanding and skills.
