Hi folks, my goal is to create react websites. I did a bit of c++ in my teens. Without studying HTML and CSS I started on Javascript. I wanted to learn JS syntax before referring to others. Did I jump the gun or is this acceptable?

I would say it’s perfectly fine yeah! In fact the two major web development paths on Codecademy (the Front-End and Full-Stack career paths) both teach it in the order JavaScript → HTML → CSS so there’s absolutely nothing wrong with starting with JS, there’s just two things I would note:

  • After learning JS and HTML you would want to go back and learn DOM manipulation as it’s fairly essential.
  • Regardless of the order you take them in you would absolutely need to get a good understanding of all three before moving on to learning React.

Thanks heaps for you brilliant advise and encouragement !
