Get an Xbox 360 wireless controller for learning some JavaScript? Really?

JavaScript in Visual Studio 2013Watch the Microsoft Virtual Academy course “JavaScript Fundamentals for absolute beginners” and you can learn how to add functionality to your websites and video games. If you are in Canada, watching the video could even earn you rewards!

Building a great web site, or a cool web game requires JavaScript. Yup, yet another programming language to master! What I like about this particular course is the way Bob Tabor from, has each concept is broken into its own video so you can search for and focus on the information you need, without having to watch hours and hours of content.

Check out the many topics as part of the JavaScript Fundamentals for absolute beginners

  • Writing your First JavaScript Application
  • Writing JavaScript in Visual Web Developer Express Edition
  • JavaScript variables, types, operators, and expressions
  • Conditional logic
  • Functions
  • Arrays
  • Working with external JavaScript Files
  • Getting started with jQuery
  • using jQuery to retrieve JSON via AJAX

and more!

Not only that until June 1, 2014, developers in Canada can earn rewards by watching ANY videos at Microsoft Virtual Academy. Check out Code Kwon Do at to find out how just watching one video could earn you rewards like an Xbox Live Gold membership or a $25 Windows App Store Gift card, or an Xbox 360 Wireless controller.
