having trouble learning JS, how did YOU learn?

Hello, I have applied for a local bootcamp to change my career. I started dabbling with CSS and HTML, and my experience in those are limited. I passed my 2 interviews and was sent a technical assessment in JS (never used). I have about a week to complete 5 labs and I'm having a little trouble learning/understanding it. I'm usually self-taught but I feel like resources are a little vague, and expect you to know a little bit of general programming to catch on. I was curious if I could get some pointers on how you learned. I feel I do not have the conceptual framework to understand these languages and I'm not entirely sure what to do. I've read most open resources like W3Schools, Codecademy and others. I can do some simple functions and assignments based on reference but once again, have trouble actually understanding things.

Hi Amar,  

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support.
JavaScript is a front-end framework to program web browser that controls how it responds to user interaction, manipulate DOM, handling Dates, Numbers, arrays and much more. Apart from that JavaScript has evolved much more to become a modular language by introducing the concept of Modules, that lets you create a large web application using OOPS concept and keeps added with new features.  To be a better front-end developer you would need to get a strong foundation and get used to the basics of this language.  
All the concepts required get strong with JavaScript were explained well in the articles you mentioned.  
So, our suggestion is that you would need to really start practicing what you learn from various resources, so that you would become more confident of what you learnt. 
If you are looking for a more light-weight and user-friendly components that would help you in increasing your productivity, please check out our components in the below help pages.
