Is JavaScript hardest part of full stack learning?

I'm not asking if javascript is the hardest language to learn I know it's a easier one. But with becoming a full stack javascript developer, so learning javascript and html, css, jQuery, Dom, rest API, node.js, mongo, http, SQL etc.. Would javascript be considered the harder one of the bunch to learn?

Hi Jason Pallone

Honestly, your question isn't really easy to answer, because it depends completely on the person.

For example, in my coding quest, I found Python to be the most perplexing for me. But when you ask people "what the easiest language to learn is" ... many will say Python, and I disagree.
On the flip side, I was able to grasp Java and Objective-C really quickly and found them quite easy to learn, but many people I've talked to said they found them to be some of the more difficult languages.
PHP I find rather complex, but one of my friends excels at it like it's nothing more than going for a walk.

I guess it will depend on your background and your learning history and even your personality. Programming languages are like many other things people learn. Some find one thing hard, while others find that same thing simple.

Sorry I couldn't be more precise. I just don't think there is one right answer. :)

Keep Coding! :dizzy:
