JavaScript Basics

By Brian Dukes

Working on web sites, I've come across the need, more and more, to be using JavaScript to make an application run more smoothly.  Unfortunately, I have absolutely no training in JavaScript, which means most of what I write does the job, but misses a number of the essentials.  Fortunately, there is hope.  If you, like me, didn't know that JavaScript objects are dictionaries, or that JavaScript inheritance is between objects, not classes, you should check out Ray Djajadinata's article for MSDN Magazine, Create Advanced Web Applications with Object-Oriented Techniques in JavaScript.  It really helped me to understand some more of all of this JavaScript craziness that I always saw but never understood.
