Where to start

0 James Moore · October 3, 2016
Hey guys, So possible summer position could be a thing for me. But the person said I have to know "If I get you an interview it'll be all ES6 JavaScript react stuff" can anybody break this down for me and point me in the best direction to learn javascript etc. I'm a computer science student and we've never touched anything web related. Just C, Miranda, assembly, C# and Java. Greatly appreciated

I would order a book on javascript, while it arrives, watch the tutorials here.  

Considering you're familiar with C and the other languages you mentioned learning this should not be difficult.  Once you've familiarized yourself with javascript just go ahead and look into React.  React is not difficult to learn either and makes somethings easier than when writing with pure javascript.

Start with Bucky's XHTML and CSS, after that Javascript to get a better view of how to make the interactive part of web, all your previous knowledge will help a lot on the transition.

yes the best way to learn Javasrcipt would have been conquering a lib of it which is jquery

then you can move on to angular, then to react, then to node and then your a bom, i mean what is plain javascript when there is so many libs out there you can even do typescript.

But java script is pretty self explanatory i never been to any university i just do my studies online via tuts and right now am a pro at jquery.

tbh you know Java ur already well on ur way u master the concept of oop so java shouldnt take you very long.
