    I'm not a programmer but something like this trickled my interest, plus its a game so boring isn't really a focus.

    If there are any actual javascript programmers let me know if this is actually any good or if I should just forget it.

    Why do you want to learn Java Script?

    1) create web pages
    2) scripting language eg instead of Windows Powershell
    3) just for the sake of learning

    ThinkScript for ToS is Javascript-like in syntax.

    I believe eSignal's scripting language is kinda like javascript as well.

    MQL4 is kinda like C, but it's similar enough to javascript that an "intro to programming" course using javascript wouldn't hurt when picking up MQL4 later.
