Good javascript forum?

Post by Isaac » Sat Feb 26, 2011 3:02 pm

I was looking for a javascript forum for beginners. There seem to be quite a few so I thought I'd ask what you all recommend.

I keep running into weird javascript issues on non firefox/chrome/explorer browsers.

Thanks! :mrgreen:

I just abuse google.

there are sites that list what exactly IE doesn't support, those would be a good place to go.

This one? :P

Try jquery. It smooths out inconsistencies in browsers, and it makes programming in raw javascript seem tediously painful by comparison.

Hey Jeff, thanks! It looks as if ubuntu comes with Jquery already installed. I must try it.

I found a good javascript forum for asking help. Normally I try to solve problems on my own, but sometimes I stuck in places. Crowded help forums take some of the guilt out of asking.

Jeff, I like showing you stuff when I think it might be interesting to you or others here, or when the other forums don't have an answer. That's good, right?

Anyway, thanks again!

I actually didn't know that (I wonder why they preinstall it), but it's just a single *.js file download, so I'd recommend downloading it from jquery's site for up-to-date-ness.

You should feel guilty for feeling guilty about asking programming questions in a forum for asking programming questions.

Isaac - I use jQuery a ton. Just hotlink to the google code hosted version - most people link to this, because it's common enough it is stored in cache.

https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/j ... ery.min.js

Also, when you have questions, go to http://www.stackoverflow.com. They are extremely helpful when it comes to Javascript questions (php too). Just keep in mind they heavily moderate, and they take their answer scoring system very seriously (i.e. if someone answers your question, check the correct awnser).

Another decent site is http://jqueryfordesigners.com/.

I originally started with http://www.tizag.com/javascriptT/ . I don't consider myself to be a very good coder, but I can do some cool stuff with jQuery - see http://www.bavarianblue.com and http://www.koffeebreak.info (reload the Koffee one, it will display a jQuery slider - you can check my code too).

wow! Lots of cool stuff!

I've been to stackoverflow many times! I just never joined.

I'll be reading!
Thanks.

To jeff: There's always some guilt to not finding the answer on my own.

Another essential: install the Firebug add-on to Firefox and use it for debugging. The console is a life saver, especially if you do anything with ajax.

I guess that is because they are taking quality very seriously and have learned from other places in the web (e.g. many "support" forums) how not to do it. The place to find (or give) answers with the highest general expertise level I know of. There may be specialized places with (even) more knowledgeable people, but StackOverflow scores with the mass of qualified participants.
