When I first started learning programming, JavaScript was my introduction into what was really possible with programming. I built a lot of small little projects with it that taught me a ton. The ability to get up and running quickly, and the ability to pretty much run anywhere is such a great thing for newcomers. I'll also enjoy tinkering around with JS even if I don't use it on a daily basis anymore.

Below I've listed a few resources that have really helped me with JavaScript and that I'd recommend to anyone.
