If you know HTML and/or CSS and want to take your skills to the next level, or even if you are a complete web novice, you really need to learn JavaScript. Not only is it the language behind the smooth and dynamic operation of Web 2.0 websites like Facebook, Twitter and Gmail, but in conjunction with HTML5 it's also the standard means Microsoft supports for creating Windows 8 apps - JavaScript is definitely the future for Windows So, whether you want to simply add a little functionality to your website, such as smooth menus that pop up and down, image transition effects, user-friendly form handling and verification, or anything else that's more than a simple, flat HTML/CSS design, JavaScript is the way to go. What's more, JavaScript is easy. If you've ever tried to learn it and been put off by a plethora of jargon and technical mumbo-jumbo then you're in for a real treat, because Robin Nixon's Crash Courses have helped tens of thousands of people learn the new skills they need.
