Are there any resident javascript programmers on dansdeals?

I'm working on a very interesting project right now, If anyone with experience wants to chip in some expertise is always appreciated.
Work is what you do between vacations.

Just wanted that cleared up for anyone that may be interested. It sounded like your project may be just a hobby.

Lol it's two years later now, and I still haven't gotten around to this. (You can find my other threads to see how i got sidetracked :) )Actually was planning on trying to learn JavaScript, among one or two other things, now when I can make the time. Any easier way to learn it other then w3school?

I learned HTML at 13 from a 4 dummies book, so it should be really easy for you.

Is HTML comparable at all to JavaScript? And that's what I'm asking here, what's the best way to go about learning it. For dummies book? One of those free online courses (like w3)? Or maybe something like lynda.

No, they're very different. HTML is a language which describes the layout of objects on the page, and JavaScript makes things happen to the objects.
The best way to learn is different for every person. I personally like books because then I find it's faster to flip back and forth and to skip ahead.

They're only similar in that you have to figure how to hack some code together to get something to work properly. But they are used very much together, JavaScript apps are used on almost all web sites. 

I don't know what the best way to learn nowadays, I would probably just learn with a WYSIWYG editor that allows you to edit and see the results instantly. Just play around until you get comfortable. HTML is all about remembering a bunch of tags. Once you're done that, there's not much more to it besides practice. Read up a bit on what standard tags every website needs (HTML, header, body, etc). I have a friend that learned HTML from Myspace, and as others suggested you can try eBay.

Just keep playing around and practicing, and if you have any specific questions, feel to free to ask.

Not sure if it was mentioned yet but Codecademy is pretty great.

They have a simple introduction to program concepts and then they have specific courses for web (HTML) and JavaScript.
