Learning JavaScript

Okay, I give in. I’m going to learn JavaScript now.

Once again I realised I’m spending a lot of time of a project (and it’s only getting more and more) on the JavaScript part and don’t feel very comfortable with it. Yes, I’ve used JavaScript (more to the point, jQuery) for many years now, but I use it like PHP without the dollar sign. Which sucks  …

So, what am I going to do?

First, I’m going to listen to Douglas Crockford:

Second, I’ll have a look at another JavaScript framework: ExtJS. I chose ExtJS because it is focused more on web applications than jQuery (which I still love!), and TYPO3 v5 will use it. I haven’t decided yet which book to read, but am determined to pick one after I got the basics right.
