Diving Deeper into JavaScript


After attending WordCamp US this past December, I determined it was time to get serious about enhancing my understanding of JavaScript. Up to this point in my web development career I have had a love/hate relationship with the language that seems to be everywhere.

I started in the late 1990’s with PHP, and have since mastered many languages and technologies, but my JavaScript skills have always been enough to get the job done, but not much more. I can manipulate some DOM elements, or use Ajax to submit some data, but I’ve always felt I never had a real grasp of what was going on under the hood.

I know this is not ideal, and my work as a developer would be greatly enhanced by mastering the language I have always kept at arms length. So I am getting serious about learning JavaScript. I am working through Kyle Simpson’s You Don’t Know JavaScript series, and am also learning to work with the React and Angular 2 frameworks.

My main purpose in publishing this post is to record my commitment to learn JavaScript more deeply. I welcome any pointers or feedback you may have.
