    How do you practice your javascript skills?

    Just curious to know.

    How do you practice and hone your JavaScript skills?
    Everyone is invited to share their experienced.

    I know there are tools like jslint, jshint, jsfiddle etc...
    But aside from these how do you hone your JS skills?

    Thanks in advance.
    I Love coding...

    Simple. By answering and asking questions on these forums

    Also by subscribing to and actually reading JavaScript weekly.

    @Pullo ;

    How about JavaScript Quiz Daily.
    Can you make a website like this?

    Then everyone can contribute questions and answers.
    Maybe this is a great idea to master javascript.

    Anyone would like to implement this?
    What do you think guys.

    Just make sure that the questions are about modern JavaScript and not the antiquated version that Netscape 4 and earlier required which for some reason lots of people are still being taught in classes where the teacher's knowledge of JavaScript is over ten years out of date and where the teacher would benefit as much from a modern JavaScript for beginners class as their students would.

    @felgall ;
    No worries I'll ask questions if I need help.

    The reason I want to do this is they say JavaScript is the most mis-understood scripting language in the world. lol

    That's probably true given how many people are still teaching how to write JavaScript for Netscape 4 and earlier browsers instead of the completely different way that has been possible since Internet Explorer 5 (yes five) was introduced.

    About 60-70% of all JavaScript commands now are DOM calls of one sort or another - which barely get mentioned in many JavaScript classes because the Netscape browser that the teacher knows how to write JavaScript for didn't support all those commands.

    That's not a good idea - most of the JavaScript you'll find that way is about 10 years or more out of date.
