    Tips for learning/studying?

    I'm brand new to the server side programming and other dryer elements of web development but I've gotten a few books and such to learn Javascript, PHP, among other things. Only problem is I'm not quite sure how to learn it - any tips for studying/learning such things? Maybe write down little tables or something? I have no clue, I just know reading it obviously isn't enough.

    Hey, for starters JavaScript is client-side.

    My technique has been buying a decent book, taking notes and experimenting with the things I learnt after each chapter. It hasn't let me down yet.
