Resources for learning JavaScript besides this great class

Let’s add resources we’ve found helpful in trying to learn JavaScript.

One that’s been mentioned multiple times is the Mozilla Developer Network Web Docs which are very detailed and technical.

Another one that’s simpler and has lots of examples is the W3Schools JavaScript Tutorial.

What resources do you like?

I got the Jon Duckett web development book bundle for Christmas from family, and it includes this book: Javascript & JQuery

I’ve only got through the first couple of chapters, but I think it is a good way to reinforce the material we are learning in this bootcamp!

I’ve been enjoying Scrimba.com Learn JavaScript for free. It starts off by teaching basic JS by working on different web based products. So it’s a fix of what we’re learning here with, I think, the next freeCodeCamp certification.

An excellent tip is the Portugol Studio, developed in Brazil. Excellent for learning programming.
