At the local Java Users Group meeting today, I learned about JavaScript.

I found many similarities with Ruby. Having learned Ruby helped me to understand the features of JavaScript. As the speaker said, most of the people who have used JavaScript only knows the on-click feature, so do I. It's good to know more because those features are the ones used heavily these days, for example, in AJAX or Firefox Extensions.

I don't think I will allocate time to learn JavaScript and I would rather spend time to learn Ruby and Ruby on Rails more. But I would like to learn scripting language support of Java SE 6 (Mustang).
