- Another part of it is the naming association with Java leading developers to think that the keywords that are common to both languages must behave in the same way.
- But the biggest part of the problem is that there is so much information out there but much of it is either wrong or inadequately explained.
There are a huge number of blog posts and other online articles. I will be adding links to some of the best ones on an ongoing basis.
There’s a ton of information on Stack Overflow, however it is not curated and not all of it is correct. I recommend only using it for answering specific questions not for learning a whole language.

Free stuff: 14 day trial

I have watched 5 of these courses (the ones available on Pluralsight) which I recommend, which are:
The main downside for me is it is relatively expensive and has fewer courses available than other companies.
However they are interesting and high quality courses and you could probably watch all of the courses that you want to watch in a month or two and then cancel before it gets too expensive. I would love it if they offered a special heavily discounted price for Pluralsight subscribers, as Pluralsight subscribers already get most of the courses for less than the monthly fee at Front End Masters.
