About this project

If you are a COMPLETE BEGINNER or you already tried and failed to learn JavaScript, this project is for you!

                   If you answered "YES" to any of these questions,

Maybe it wasn't the subject you couldn't get your head around, but the way it was presented?

Visual learners retain information very differently than their left brained counter-parts, and thus benefit from different approaches. Full color illustrations help memory triggers as your brain never forgets an image, metaphor or schema. One page of a visual guide can equal one chapter of a conventional book as illustrations can make a world of difference over strictly words on a page!

As a graphic and web designer who struggled many times myself to learn programming, I looked all over the web and through so many books for help! I searched for some sort of explanation of the concepts beyond plain black and white text. I saw so many others failing and giving up at this point that I decided I would have to take action myself and do something about it. And so this project was born!

My goal is to create a VISUAL GUIDE that will work alongside conventional books to help the more visually oriented learn and master JavaScript like never before!

The book will focus on:

1. Building a strong foundation in programming

2. Understanding the basic concepts

3. Memorization of the terminology and syntax of the language.

4. Best Practices

Using real life objects, metaphors, association, analogies and examples my 7 year old nephew understands.

As Einstein said, "If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough."

This is something that I feel strongly about and believe will benefit so many out there who want to learn the basics of programming and beyond. The funds raised here will allow me to work through the process of condensing the information quicker as well as allow me to hire an editor, proofreader, indexer, and pay for everything else that goes into making this book ready for production!

Metaphors and Analogies work well to remember fancy words

Associating a JavaScript concept with real life objects followed by a brief example makes a lot of sense

I hope you are as excited about this project as I am and that you will become a backer right now! You will be helping not only me, but so many others who have tried and given up on learning a coding language. This book will visualize JavaScript like nothing else online and I can't wait for you to see it!
