Further Knowledge building.. Help?
Just wondering about a few things, I currently find myself at a cross roads of where I want to take my education, or atleast, personal teaching. I find that i'm somewhat fluent in the "basic - intermediate" usage of PHP, MySQL and HTML. But struggle to grasp CSS. I've only attempted Java as a simple "Hello world" and some Minecraft Bukkit Plugins.
My question is, for a personal usage, where should I focus some reading hours into? Should I continue down the path of PHP / HTML until I'm extremely fluent and can start writing major scripts and systems? Or Should I learn some JS, What can JS do for me? I've not really used it much, or anything to be honest, I once had a web-slider in a business theme which was pretty horrific if you ask me, mainly because it was just cheaply ripped by my web dev.
If somebody could clear up exactly what JS can do, and where it could take my own development, that'd be great, and if anybody has any suggestions into where I should focus hours.
I'm quite fluent in VB, but that's primarially for a College Unit.
Next year, we're focussing on the basics of MySQL, JS, PHP and Client-Side Customisation, I guess I can probably just float through next year since I know more than the tutor does about PHP and MYSQL.
Thanks for reading, and I really hope I find some great examples of JS below this post when I read back on this tomorrow.
