    In need of guidance/mentoring after burnout!

    Hi,

    I'm a 29 year old guy who's picked up programming after a serious burnout in my previous business.

    My aim is to work with something less stressful than having employees and making ends meet within the company.

    I've studied programming on university, but I've forgot the most of it (except for the concepts like OOP and how to think about programming).

    Javascript is the language I've decided to learn because I want to work "online" with applications that are compatible on almost all platforms. I'm doing progress but I feel severely handicapped without some kind of guidance/pointers from someone who knows better.

    If anyone of you guys is available for the challenge, I'd really appreciate it.

    Sincerely
    Anton

    I have a few hundred examples of JavaScript coding at http://javascriptexample.net - if you work your way through those and have any questions along the way I'd be happy to answer them.

    Don't forget to start your JavaScript code with "use strict"; which makes it easier to find errors in your code.

    And Felgall's examples are not only good in and of themselves, he also teaches proper coding techniques, which seems to be utterly missing from most books and courses.
