Should I go further into mark up languages and Javascript?

I'm going through the Flask Basics course and so far we've done some very basic Html, css, and javascript

my knowledge on these three languages are only the basics it's been sometime since I've done any of them

So what im asking is should I go through some courses on those three before continuing to learn flask?

Have you hit something that needs explaining?

You should only need a basic understand of HTML structure such as <tags> </tags>. There is very little CSS and no JavaScript (that I remember).

Flask does make use of an extended syntax for the HTML, but this is part of the jinja2 template syntax (which the Flask course does teach) and not something learned in a CSS course.

So I would suggest to press on and ask in the forum if there is anything you're unsure of. Good Luck!

that sounds good to me man ill give it a shot

It would only work to your advantage to work through some of the basic html/css courses on Treehouse.
"How to Make a Website" covers all the foundations of HTML and CSS : https://teamtreehouse.com/library/how-to-make-a-website and the first Javascript video is a breeze if you know Python: https://teamtreehouse.com/library/javascript-basics

thank you for the sources!

Edit I actually just finished going through both of these courses they were awesome =]
