About learning

Hi, I'm Shuto!! I started my job as web designer last November... I've been learning HTML and CSS. I can do basic things for making a website with using both HTML and CSS. During my work, Wordpress is pretty major to use to make a website and some maintenance. so, i am considering which i should learn next either Wordpress or JavaScript after learning HTML and CSS.

Please anyone can help me:P

If you find yourself using WordPress a lot, I would highly recommend learning the basics about WordPress along with PHP. Most of the work you'll end up doing will most likely revolve around templating and theming which means touching a lot of WP specific PHP code. Once you have a grasp on the basics learning tools like Advanced Custom Fields would be handy as a lot of sites use that.

WordPress does use jQuery quite a bit, and with the Rest API and Gutenberg chances are you'll start seeing more and more "decoupled" sites where the front end is entire JS. The basics for JS would probably more than enough to get you started with WordPress as well.
