Watch Me Learn

This page tracks my progress as I learn more about Computer Science and Finance.

This page takes no small inspiration from Teach Yourself CS.

I keep notes and solutions for my self-study here

The Modern JavaScript Tutorial 17/10/2018 yes

Of special note here is the Modern JavaScript Tutorial. It truly is the single best resource for front-end development that I have found. There are many books on JavaScript and others on CSS/HTML/Web APIs. The Modern JavaScript Tutorial is the only resource I have found that thoroughly covers both JavaScript the language and how to use it in the modern browser context to manipulate HTML5+CSS3. I started Eloquent JavaScript and worked up to chapter 16 but dropped it to work through the Modern JavaScript Tutorial. Eloquent JavaScript is an excellent book but it lacks a lot of coverage in how to interact with the browser environment.
