Javascript Extra Resources

I'm about to finish the Web Development track and I don't feel that my Javascript knowledge is anywhere close to good, I know is all about practice and I'll for sure do some projects to fortify that knowledge but I would like to know about the best resources to learn JS apart from Treehouse.

I absolutely love jQuery and I did the Codeschool Course and it was great, some people say is better to do jQuery first, Javascript later, some people say otherwise. What's your opinion? Thanks for the help, appreciated.

I would highly recommend a website called 'thenewboston.com'. It has a TON of videos. I would also recommend Wikiuniversity. There is also codecademey.com, but they cover a lot of what is already covered here. :) I hope this helps!

I checked thenewboston Android Development videos a while back and they were really good, I'm going to check the JS videos. Thanks

You got it! And there is one more resource I know of called 'W3C schools'. It's pretty neat, and is a good reference website.

I, personally, made it a priority to learn vanilla JavaScript before learning jQuery. jQuery is absolutely a time saver but even in a jQuery project you will run into moments where plain vanilla JS would be the best solution.

As for resources for learning more JS. I would recommend YouTube videos and, most importantly, trail and error in your own personal projects.

I hope this helps.
