Hacking JavaScript, and Why

When learning any programming language, one of the hard parts is knowing what to build, and creating all the infrastructure needed to create something of value.

I learned JavaScript in small chunks, by Hacking JavaScript applications i.e. small changes that made the more fun to play, or writing small scripts in the console to create test data, or even writing simple bots that would play the game.

Learning this way means we don’t need to install and IDEs, we don’t have to install and SDK. Everything we need to start learning and using JavaScript is already installed in our browser.

This free 65+ page book contains some tutorials, exercises and plenty of links to other resources to help you learn. And this is the way I learned, so I’m confident you will gain value from this free material.

I know it can be hard to share your email address on a newsletter:

  • What if there is no value?
  • What if it is just all sales pitches?

Well, looking back through my archive of emails I can see that I emailed out:

  • exclusive articles
  • access to videos early
  • access to videos that are private
  • conference discounts
  • discounts on courses and books
  • links to learning resources I haven’t shared anywhere else

I try to keep a good balance between information and marketing. My aim is to inform, and update you, so that you can grow your skills and abilities and help you succeed in your career.

I never share your email address. And there is an unsubscribe link at the bottom of every email to make it easy to drop out if you need to. See also our Privacy Policy Page
