JavaScript from Null: Chapter 2

Thanks to the wide adoption of libraries like jQuery and Mootools, JavaScript's popularity has skyrocketed in the last few years. However, in the process, an interesting thing occurred: many newer developers are learning these libraries without taking the time to actually learn about raw JavaScript techniques. What percentage of jQuery users don't know how to fade out an element with only raw JS? My guess is that it's much higher than many would think.

If you want to truly understand the library you're working with, and improve your skill-set, it's vital that you learn the fundamentals of raw JavaScript.

This screencast series focuses exclusively on JavaScript, and will take you from your first "Hello, World" alert up to more advanced topics.
