Javascript in Unity isn't really Javascript, it's a unique language sometimes called Unityscript. It used to be almost identical to JScript.NET, but Unity 3.0 added a number of features (see here). It might be better to learn another language first that has more learning resources, and then apply that programming knowledge to Unityscript later, using something like this for the differences.

This guy TornadoTwins he is really awesome. He explains a little bit of about everything about Unity3D and he is especially fucusing on scripting(JavaScript) Watch all of hes videos(29 episodes i believe) and you will be on the way very nicely. :)


Hope this is satisfying enough :)

Java and Javascript are two completely different languages. Also, Unity doesn't use Java.

Eric is right, Javascript is inherited from Java and Java is inherited from C but they are completely different. They have a lot in common but the syntax differ.

@Bunny83: Javascript isn't inherited from Java; the name was just marketing. It's derived from ECMAScript. It was supposed to be called LiveScript originally.

We'll, I've been using Java and it's worked fine, guess it must be pretty similar, sorry I'm not narrow minded.

@Justin: You haven't been using Java in Unity. C# is similar to Java, though. Don't know what you mean about "narrow minded"...the question was about Javascript specifically, which isn't related to Java.
