Q&A

Q1: JavaScript looks pretty exciting. Where can I learn more about it?
A1: As mentioned before, SAMS Publishing has a line of titles available on this subject. If you can't wait to get to the bookstore, check out the W3Schools' online JavaScript tutorial at http://www.w3schools.com/js/. They have a series of easy-to-understand, self-taught classes that are available free-of-charge.
Q2:Is it possible to create animations, such as the one in this hour using scripting languages, other than JavaScript?
A2: Yes. There are a variety of different scripting languages supported on the Web that you could use to create SVG animations. For example, Microsoft's VBScript is a strong competitor of JavaScript that can do pretty much anything JavaScript can do. If you happen to have a background in BASIC, you might consider taking a look at VBScript. To learn more, visit the W3Schools' online VBScript tutorial at http://www.w3schools.com/vbscript/. There are also several good SAMS Publishing titles on VBScript.
