Discussion on: JavaScript is kicking my ass!

Ohh yeah, JavaScript is a whole different beast from HTML and CSS. Remember, HTML is primarily about representing the logical structure of your data and your page, CSS is primarily about defining how it looks, and JavaScript is for... everything else! It's a proper programming language used in most (all?) of the places that C++, Python, Perl, Ruby, etc. are used. The upside is it's an increibly powerful lanugage, and there's basically nothing you can't do with it (or, nothing that you can't do with JS but can do with other programming languages); the downside is that it takes complex syntax to wield all that power!

Take your time; don't rush anything. There's a ton to learn if you're the kind of person who wants to understand the language deeply. But IMO, in the end, it's totally worth all the pain!

So true. But it's all so worth it in the end. After mastering the basics, we realise the beauty of JavaScript. That is when I feel in love with the language.
