    Hello,

    At the moment I'm working as a webdesigner in a small company, but I'm not happy over there. I asked my boss if I could get some extra courses....good for my job and he refused. Now I want to follow some courses during my holliday and it could help me to find another job. Well a better job anyway.

    I'm trying to learn Javascript on my own, but I would like to follow courses in the UK or the States. I looked over here in Belgium and The Netherlands, but couldn't find a course that went far enough. Most of them are just teaching you the basics, but I would like to go deeper...

    Does anyone know a good place where you get the maximum for your money?

    If you have any other ideas, please tell me! Thank U all.

    Jean-Luc

    In our field, the best way to get the most for your money is always to buy a book and read it. You'll learn more in less time, and it'll cost you much less. :-)

    I recommend "Instant JavaScript" by WROX Press if you have some programming experience. If not, "JavaScript: The Definitive Guide" from O'Reilly is excellent.

    Thanx for your reply.

    I know that books are the best things to use if you want to learn. And I'm using "JavaScript: The Definitive Guide" at the moment.
    But Having a kind of crash course isn't bad.

    I had a look at http://www.learningtree.com/
    but it's a bit out of my range.

    Because I don't like the company I work in, I looked for a job on the net and when they need somebody they want that person to know DHTML, javascript, CGI, ASP.... But you can't learn it "all" out of books and know the material.

    I'm good in graphics and multimedia and I know a little bit of everything (DHTML, javascript...) But it seems you never know enough to get the right job. At least over here in Belgium.

    Well anyway thanx again, and I'm happy that that this forum exists. But most of my questions would look, out of place, amongst the more specialised ones ;-)
