ECMAScript is the formal, official, name for Javascript.
By learning Javascript, you are learning ECMAScript.

To learn about it, borrow some books from the library, buy some books from bookstores, browse some programming forums that discuss Javascript/ECMAScript, take some courses, etc.

The official language specification is ECMA-262, and a copy (in PDF format) can be found at the following link on the ECMA International website:

ECMA-262 ECMAScript Language Specification

Hope this helps.

ECMAScript is a subset of Javascript. Javascript is basically ECMAScript at it's core but builds upon it. Languages such as Actionscript, Javascript, JScript all use ECMAScript as its core.

Hi..JavaScript was originally developed by Brendan Eich of Netscape under the name Mocha, later LiveScript, and finally renamed to JavaScript.[2] In December 1995, Sun Microsystems and Netscape announced JavaScript in a press release.[3] In March 1996, Netscape Navigator 2.0 was released, featuring support for JavaScript.

Due to the widespread success of JavaScript as a client-side scripting language for web pages, Microsoft developed a compatible dialect of the language, naming it JScript to avoid trademark issues. JScript added new date methods to fix the non-Y2K-friendly methods in JavaScript, which were based on the Java Date class.[4] JScript was included in Internet Explorer 3.0, released in August 1996.

Netscape delivered JavaScript to Ecma International for standardization and the work on the specification, ECMA-262, began in November 1996.[5] The first edition of ECMA-262 was adopted by the Ecma General Assembly of June 1997. Several editions of the language standard have been published since then.

ECMAScript is the name of the scripting language standardized in ECMA-262. The name "ECMAScript" was a compromise between the organizations involved in standardizing the language, especially Netscape and Microsoft, whose disputes dominated the early standards sessions. Brendan Eich, the creator of JavaScript, commented that "ECMAScript was always an unwanted trade name that sounds like a skin disease.

ECMA is the official name of JavaScript which is coined by W3C. Actually if you are learning JavaScript you are also learning ECMA script too.

ECMAScript is a subset of Javascript. Javascript is basically ECMAScript at it's core but builds upon it. Languages such as Actionscript, Javascript, JScript all use ECMAScript as its core. As a comparison, AS/JS/JScript are 3 different cars, but they all use the same engine... each of their exteriors is different though, and there have been several modifications done to each to make it unique.

The history is, Brendan Eich created Mocha which became LiveScript, and later JavaScript. Netscape presented Javascript to Ecma, which makes standards and it was renamed to ECMA-262 aka ECMAScript.

It's important to note that Brendan Eich's "Javascript" is not the same Javascript that is a dialect of ECMAScript. He built the core language which was renamed to ECMAScript, which differs from the Javascript which browser-vendors implement nowadays.
