JavaScript is a fun language. You might not have ever heard of a "fun" programming language, but it turns out JavaScript is one of the easiest, if not THE EASIEST, programming languages to learn out there.

Instructor Biography

Martin Kenny, Author of "Malibu Code: Learn HTML, CSS and JavaScript"

Martin Kenny is the author of "Malibu Code: Learn HTML, CSS and JavaScript," a book that teaches the fundamentals of web design and interactive website programming through the metaphor of surfing. The original phrase, "surfing the web" comes from surfing, and yet no other web design or programming courses explore the power of the surfing metaphor beyond this common phrase.

In Martin's courses you will learn coding skills faster by building on top of ideas you already understand, instead of learning things from scratch. Much like surfing, many people give up on trying to learn how to code after their first few experiences with failure. Martin's courses are different because they explain everything in simple English and don't assume that you know anything about computers or programming or have any prior experience.
