How Long Does it Take to Learn JavaScript?

It can take between three and eight months to learn JavaScript from scratch. This would depend on if you are following a self-guided learning plan or if you've enrolled in a program like BrainStation's Web Development bootcamp, which is designed to give students hands-on experience using development fundamentals and key programming languages, including JavaScript.

If you have any kind of background in computer programming or the basics of HTML code, it will be easier to learn JavaScript fast through courses or advanced tutorials. Coding bootcamps like BrainStation's can help you learn JavaScript and get up to speed in as little as three months of intensive study.

Getting started in JavaScript is as easy as opening Chrome or another web browser and opening Developer Tools. A total beginner could write a "Hello World" program: console.log("Hello World"). Even in that beginning stage of learning JavaScript and long before you've looked at more advanced concepts, you can get your hands dirty with a real-world project and begin seeing real results.

But progressing beyond JavaScript fundamentals will take longer, especially if you try to do it at your own pace. In part, that's because JavaScript offers multiple ways of accomplishing the same task, and determining the right strategies will take time and experience.
