JavaScript: The Most Used Programming Language in the Universe

Next week we begin our journey into the magical realm of JavaScript. I will be trying to show you some of the most important bits about the language in class, but I highly recommend you also listen to the lectures below by Douglas Crockford: Master Yoda of JavaScript.

Introduction to JavaScript Lectures

Advanced JavaScript Lectures

These videos come from the YUI theater, which we will be attending often. The Mozilla foundation has some really good tutorials on JavaScript, in case you want some online reading material. I also recommend you read the two recommended JavaScript books if you can afford it. You can skim over the big JavaScript book, but you are cheating yourself if you don't savor every page of "The Good Parts" (except for those strange diagrams, I don't know what Doug was thinking).
