Video Tutorial: The JavaScript Programming Language

Yahoo!’s video of Douglas Crockford’s The JavaScript Programming Language lecture is definitely the best overview of JavaScript that I’ve ever seen. (The first part is embedded below, and the remaining 3 parts are linked after that.) I saw it a while back, but it’s been getting a fair amount of press in the social media space this week.

Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part 4

I’m self-taught when it comes to JavaScript, as I’ve never taken a formal class that dealt with it, and it was refreshing to find that I’ve managed to pick up most of the good habits that Crockford recommends while avoiding most of the bad habits he cautions against. I must have made good choices as to which sites’ and browser extensions’ source code I studied.

I think next I’ll get started on watching their “Advanced JavaScript” series.

    Very cool, i have been playing with JavaScript since the 90’s and have really just started to take it serious. I have been looking around the web for info about JavaScript to bring my skill levels up, and have found a few cool things, but Crawford is over the top, this is by far the best tutorials for programmers that want to learn JavaScript syntax and proper use. Thank you so much for adding these links, good job dude!
