Thoughts on How to Learn JavaScript

The JavaScript landscape can be very confusing. It seems every week there is a new framework or library being released. It can be very difficult keeping up on the latest.

So if you are just starting your journey down the JavaScript highway, you may be asking yourself which direction do I take? How fast should I travel? What automobile should I drive?

In this first tutorial published at All Things JavaScript, we address the question of how to go about learning JavaScript. I believe you will find the guidance helpful as you plan your trip.
