Hi everyone! So very happy to be here to talk about JavaScript. I love Java Ranch!!! :-)

So what JavaScript questions do you have?? As Jeanne said in her intro, Eric and I just finished a book about programming with JavaScript. It's designed to be accessible to people who know some HTML and CSS, but may never have programmed before. But we also wanted it to be suitable for people who might know how to program in another language, may have done just a little script cut-n-paste, and want to learn how JavaScript works as a programming language.

So dive right in with those questions!! We're ready…

By the way, in case you want to check out Head First JavaScript Programming (especially if you're new to Head First and want to know what it's all about), you can see a full sample chapter on the O'Reilly page here:
