Chapter 33. What to Do Next

Now that you know the JavaScript language, how do you proceed? What is the best way to get to know the whole ecosystem? Here are some suggestions:

  • Frontend Rescue is a site with tips to get you started with browser development.
  • JSbooks links to a variety of free books on JavaScript and related technologies.
  • Twitter is a good tool for staying up-to-date with web development. Start with famous JavaScript people you know (e.g., the creator of your framework of choice) and continue from there; sooner or later, you will get plenty of ideas for who to follow next.
  • JSMentors is a forum dedicated to “helping developers become better JavaScript coders in a professional & non-confrontational environment.”
  • Apart from Twitter, there are many other interesting news sources to explore. The following are a few examples:

  • JavaScript user groups are a fun and educational way of meeting like-minded people. Most of them assemble regularly, with talks and more.
  • JavaScript conferences are another good source of information. Many of them publish freely accessible videos of their talks online.

Finally, you can also take a look at the book’s companion website,, where I’ll occasionally publish material related to this book.
