well i have some experience with object oriented programming on javascript, but i'd like to see how extreme is "the good parts", also i already read some books on the canvas, and i actually liked the tool much more than flash even though it feels harder when it comes to animation and stuff, it wont be a problem here, the only thing that concerns me about working with canvas, is that the code is actually pretty open for anyone to see, and any experienced person might be able to find in-vulnerabilities easily by going through the code.

as for the last 4, i've never been a big fan of working with external libraries, even tho i know their potential, but im not saying i wont give them a try, learning a library that is not well documented could get a little messy tho.

overall, i feel its a little scary to work like that, it would be great if there was tutorials or open source codes to learn about this, having no clue about how serversided apps work, for example, i saw this on socked.io:

var io = require('socket.io').listen(80);

io.sockets.on('connection', function (socket) {
socket.emit('news', { hello: 'world' });
socket.on('my other event', function (data) {
console.log(data);
});
});

i dont understand a word of it, and i dont know where to put it, or how.

also for the database, learning mongoose feels too hard now, my cpanel only offers database options for mysql, and i dont know how anything else would work.

Im not saying what you posted isn't great, what im saying is that it might seem easy for a person as experienced as you, but to me things just got even scarier, what i really want to learn is the basics of how it all works, instead of a library that will help me through it ( dont know if that makes sense), or maybe just learn the basics in some kind of introductory way like the most basic tutorial for it, before i get to go deeper on those libraries.

thank you a lot though
