Programming is becoming an essential part of nearly every industry known to man, the way it helps to organize and maintain large systems is not possible to compare to anything else, and so more and more people begin their journey. You can learn to code both from interactive platforms and also from books – whichever you find most appropriate and easy to learn from.

But, sometimes that’s not good enough, and we want to practice new things. Coding is a lot about creativity, your ability to come up with new and interesting ideas; but sometimes, due to a large amount of time spent tackling common problems, we forget about creativity.

Given that, it’s often useful to find a plan for learning whatever you’re interested in. That’s what this post is: your blueprint, your roadmap, your plan of action for learning JavaScript! You don’t have to worry about finding the best resources, sorting out the bad ones, and figuring out what to learn next. It’s all here. JavaScript is the language of the browser.

You might even have heard someone say that you should start with jQuery (or another library) and learn JavaScript after. A handful of good introductions, if I may: So, what can you build? How to Learn JavaScript Properly. Learn JavaScript Properly (For Beginners and Experienced Programmers) This study guide, which I also refer to as a course outline and a road map, gives you a structured and instructive outline for learning JavaScript properly. In fact, you will find two study guides below, one for absolute beginners and the other for experienced programmers and web developers. You do want to learn JavaScript. I presume you are here for that reason, and you have made a wise decision. For if you want to develop modern websites and web applications (including an internet startup), or if you want a high-paying developer job ($75K to $250K+), JavaScript is undoubtedly the best web-development language to learn today, unless you want to develop native iOS or Android apps exclusively.

And while there exist ample online resources to teach you JavaScript, finding the most efficient and beneficial method to learn the “language of the web” can be a frustrating endeavor. Table of Contents What You will Learn. Learn JavaScript. Getting Started - Before we can run a simple Hello World App we need to install the programming environment. We will run Hello World on the Android Emulator (which runs very slowly) and on the phone (which is super fast). The best resource for developing Android apps is Android Developers. We will use developers as a source for material for parts of this course. Get the Android SDK The Android SDK provides you the API libraries and developer tools necessary to build, test, and debug apps for Android. You need to download the ADT (Android Development Tools) Bundle to develop, run and debug apps. The bundle includes the essential Android SDK components and a version of the Eclipse IDE with built-in ADT.

The ADT Bundle includes everything you need: Eclipse + ADT pluginAndroid SDK ToolsAndroid Platform-toolsAndroid platformAndroid emulator Click on Get Android SDK ADT Bundle to get started. Install the SDK and Eclipse IDE Select a workspace The ADT stores your projects in a folder called workspace.
