Learn JavaScript, straight from the Gurus - Free JavaScript Video Lectures

I consider myself lucky to ‘know’ and have ‘access’ to these brilliant and free JavaScript videos and lectures, delivered by the best in the industry.

In this post, I will share links of some very useful JavaScript videos and lectures delivered by JavaScript Gurus, full of information, fun watching and absolutely Free! Although the internet is full of free videos, I have chosen only a couple of them, which I found the most useful. Get ready to take notes as you learn..
