"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

if you're going to learn javascript, I would recommend you also learn jQuery as well, it'll make your life a heck of a lot easier. jQuery is a javascript-based framework that helps simplify javascript programming tasks.

Learning a framework is a good idea, but learn javascript first.
