Details

This study group is for folks that want to learn and/or get better at writing JavaScript. First we'll start with pure JavaScript then will dive into JQuery and some other libraries and will attempt to tackle some of the "hardcore" stuff.

Members can use any materials they choose and we will focus our study sessions on different topics each meeting.

Some suggested materials are presented below to start with.
