Hey guys

I want to teach my girlfriend to program with JavaScript, what do you think would be the best resource to teach her that? Be specific if possible, book names, internet tutorials are fine, even videos if they're good quality.

Thanks!

Some sad nerd who can't get a girlfriend maybe? :)

Does she have any previous exposure to programming?

If not, maybe JavaScript For Cats could be a good start : http://jsforcats.com

Also, Eloquent JavaScript is a nice book and is available for free : http://eloquentjavascript.net (PDF version here : http://eloquentjavascript.net/Eloquent%20JavaScript.pdf)

Finally, this post offers a complete curriculum : 

How to Learn JavaScript Properly (For NON-JavaScript Programmers and First-time Programmers) : http://javascriptissexy.com/how-to-learn-javascript-properly/

Hope this helps :)

Awesome! Thanks a bunch.

No exposure, she doesn't have any idea what she may be getting into :P

A bit late to the party, but D. Crockford's JavaScript: The Good Parts is a good way to learn how to write good, efficient, effective JS. You may want to have her read it after she does the Codecademy course, as it will be an excellent buffer to add to what she already knows.
