A New Javascript Resource From Code School

Javascript.comCode School recently debuted a new resource called Javascript.com. This site combines a new tutorial with a curated collection of resources and news items on Javascript. It also links visitors to Code School’s FiveJS podcast and newsletter. According to the Code School blog, the site was made as an answer to the question “If JavaScript had a homepage, what might you find there?”

At this point, it is clear that the site is very new. The brief tutorial that first time visitors see is quite simple. While the look and feel is engaging, it only walks users through a few very basic elements of Javascript. This seems to be an intentional choice since the goal of the tutorial is more to pique the interest of those who have never written Javascript before than to create experts. Once visitors complete the tutorial, they earn a badge that ties into the Code School profile system and are given the option to explore more of the site’s resources. Most of the resources right now are beginner tutorials, though many of the news items may be of interest to more experienced programmers. Overall, those with an interest in learning Javascript might like the resources, and particularly the tutorials, found on the site, but so far there aren’t that many new resources that can’t be found elsewhere. However, it will be interesting to see how the site develops over time.
