⚡️Douglas Crockford does the DOM on Video

Wednesday, October 18th, 2006 at 3:54 pm

I was lucky enough to get some good JavaScript trainings in the last months, one of which being Douglas Crockford explaining the DOM as an inconvenient API to work with.

While his slides have a splendid “Silent Movie” style to it (white text on black background), they tend to be a bit overwhelming when you don’t get his explanations alongside them. Well, <farnsworth>Good News, everyone!</farnsworth>: his sessions have now been made available as small half hour videos on the web.

Personally I learnt more in Douglas’ training sessions so far than in about 5 years of reading books and web content on the subject. This is really good material if you want to understand why working with the DOM can sometimes be a very tough job.
