Best Node.js COMPLETE NOOB programming guide?

General Discussion
  • I've tried my hand at learning PHP, C, C++, Perl, Python, etc... and every single time I get to where I try and learn how to do an array or functions and I just get lost.

    I've done HTML/CSS for almost 20 years. But I'm no programmer but REALLY want to learn. Perhaps node.js will be the platform that allows me to succeed! (or not but hey... you never know!)

    Is there a really good tutorial out there somewhere that doesn't assume you are some awesome programmer?

    Thanks in advance.

    PS. I did google but most of the node.js tutorials seem VERY advanced so perhaps I have to grok some other pieces first before I can even get started with node.js

  • @Sick Learn by doing, just read through peoples plugins to see what they've done, how they've done it etc. Then look at NodeBBs core files, then other peoples node.js projects, start your own. See how far you get. 👍

  • If you get stuck on array/functions. I would recommend you learning JavaScript first before tackling node.js =] (i think) may be a good starting place for you.

  • Learn Javascript first, then head onto Node.js
