Javascript Tutor - Lesson 25 - Last one!

Well, that about wraps up this tutorial. Or rather, even though there are still a couple hundred more topics to cover and a thousand more exercises to do, this is where I'm going to stop. We've gone from nothing to a reasonably solid grasp of basic javascript programming... and that was the goal.

We've covered a dozen topics and you did about 50 exercises (I hope). You now have your foot in the proverbial door. I encourage you to expand your knowledge by creating new scripts. Build on what you've learned. Utilize fully the resources at your disposal. Your knowledge and skill will increase in direct proportion to how much scripting you do.


JavaScript resources and references:

JavaScript Authoring Guide
Included with this tutorial is Netscape's JavaScript 1.1 documentation. I find this the most useful and easiest to understand javascript reference available. Hopefully you will find it useful as well.
 
JavaScript FAQ at irt.org
I can't stress enough what a great javascript resource this is. Sure, they have material on a wide range of Internet Related Technologies, but the section on javascript beats all. Ever have a question or problem with javascript? If there's an answer, you'll probably find it there.
 
Google Groups (Advanced Search)
Google Groups is the latest and greatest archiver of all newsgroup discussions. Anything anyone has ever posted on any one of 30,000+ newsgroups is stored there and the search facilities are plenty strong. There happens to be a newsgroup called comp.lang.javascript where javascript related issues are discussed on a daily basis. Past discussions are searchable and are an incredible wealth of information.
 
Javascript Kit - Complete JavaScript Reference
A very nicely done javascript reference. Well organized, simple, useful.
 
MSDN (Microsoft Developer Network) JScript documentation
Microsoft's documentation. The MSDN website is very extensive and contains a massive amount of very useful information. Unfortunately, there are a few drawbacks. Navigating it is a little confusing... sort of like swimming through mud. It's got a Microsoft slant to it and the site seems to work best using Internet Explorer. Still, I recommend using it as a reference not only for javascript, but for other web development topics as well.
