I have been wanting to learn JavaScript for some time now. Currently, I’m up to my ears on an HTML5/CSS3 project and there isn’t a lot of bandwidth to figure out what book I should buy to get started, much less have the time to read. Then today I came across a link from SwissMiss in my newsfeed that struck the perfect cord. It’s a web site that is an interactive way to learn JavaScript for beginners. I did a couple of lessons in just a few minutes and I’m hooked! The lessons are short and focused, but they refer back to earlier lessons to help build your knowledge of how to do things in JavaScript.

Add the fact that there are badges and achievements and now my Lisa Simpson like need for validation is properly satiated and I’m frothing at the mouth to do more lessons. It’s brilliant.
