How to Learn Anything and Teach JavaScript


Learning to develop web apps is hard, but clearly it’s possible and even fun. Many of us have read about or heard why it’s hard, and plenty of people are working to make it easier. Yet, unlike playing violin, golfing, or even cooking at an expert level, we do not yet have a well-defined methodology for teaching or learning this in-demand skill.

We’ll talk about the cognitive stages of learning and how they apply to something you already have experience with -- JavaScript -- so you can not only share your expertise effectively with a newcomer, but so you have a clear path to acquire any new skill.
