Good Javascript guide?

    Any recommendations for some Javascript guide? For someone who already knows how to program.

    Not a guide but learning is always helped with the right tools. If you're going to work with Javascript, make sure that you have Firebug installed.

    Eloquent JavaScript is helpful. I use it along with the JavaScript: The Definitive Guide (book).

    Save yourself a lot of pain by reading "Javascript: The Good Parts" by Douglas Crockford. Javascript is a wonderful language, with some parts in it that you'd be wise to avoid. Here it is on Amazon. It is now considered a classic by computer sci. folks: https://www.amazon.com/JavaScript-Good-Parts-Douglas-Crockford/dp/0596517742
