Hi Dalexis,

You should have a medium-adavance PHP knowledge, Loop, conditional statements, Object Oriented programming and Functions.

Javascript is the same as PHP.

This is how i did, I first took PHP Track, then I jumped to Wordpress development track, once I got to the action, filters and hooks, I went back to PHP to learn about OOP and functions, right now im working on the Plugin Development, I turned my attention to Javascript.

As for Wordpress Development, is not that hard once you understand how it works.

Good luck!
