Can I jump ahead to JavaScript training?

I must put more time into Code Academy! I want to complete the course. I am not yet completed with the HTML course. Out of curiosity, can I jump ahead and start training in JavaScript at the same time as I train in HTML and then CSS, or should I wait until I completed the latter?

Yes, you can, because the JavaScript course is about the basics of JS and not specified on front-end development.
There is only one part of the course where it’s about Requests so you need to know HTML basics and HTML forms, but not CSS.

Unfortunately the JavaScript course for front-end is a pro course, in this course you would learn about script tags,

<script type="text/javascript"></script>

the DOM (Document Object Model),

<p id="test">I'm testing</p>
<script type="text/javascript">
  let test = document.getElementById("test");
  test.innerHTML = "Changed by Javascript";

and Handlebars,

<p id="click">click me</p>
<script type="text/javascript">
  let click = document.getElementById("click");
  click.addEventListener("click", () => {
    click.innerHTML = "you clicked me";

A click event occurs when you press down the click button on your mouse (the mousedown event), and then you release it (the mouseup event).

Hope this helps :grinning:

Thanks for your help. I do have a pro account so I can start that section.

Yes, but you should do the introduction to JavaScript course first then that.
