JavaScript: The Good Parts presentation

4 April, 2011 § 1 Comment

Last week I gave a presentation at Michigan State University to a group of students who have a passion for web development. Many of them are experienced with HTML and CSS, but are just getting introduced to JavaScript.

During the presentation I recommended W3Schools, but after further thinking I realized there are just too many poor recommendations and incorrect statements on W3Schools website. I found a good list of places to grab resources from on w3fools.com:
