Exactly what i thought it was gonna be like -____-
Holy christ this is so confusing, i mean i can kinda see the minuscule, remnant, of a particle of resemblence to REAL programming languages, but for the most part it looks like these language was created by a drunk person who was trying to get more drunk than he ever had before..... i know there is prolly hundreds of books on JS, but is there like a JS "Bible" so-to-speak. A book that has clear definitive information for EVERY aspect of the language? I don't care about price, i just learn better when i have access to a physical means of the information i need. Please help me, because i really want to (and have always) wanted to learn JS, but so far its exactly like i figured it would be, walking through the gates of hell :'(
Hope this helps. Ali M

Hi Jimmy Walters I'm sorry I didn't see your comment earlier - slipped past my radar.
This course was intended to for those who might have never seen JS before and want to just hack around with something that already works. In my experience with kids, I prefer to take the constructivist approach to learning - play first and look into 'how you're supposed to do it' later on. I know this is not the way a lot of adults work though and I'm sorry if I've been going too fast for your comfort level.
I'm going to remove this comment from the video questions just because these courses are intended to be used by kids and I don't think their teachers and parents would much appreciate them reading forum posts about being drunk. This thread will still live in the forum though.
Best of luck!
