JavaScript JavaScript Basics (Retired) Introducing JavaScript Your First JavaScript Program

What are prerequisites to take the JS courses at Treehouse?

Do I need to know HTML,CSS,PHP to start JS courses ?

2 Answers

I highly recommend learning HTML first. You can also learn CSS after HTML, which should be useful also for learning JS.

If you just want to learn both in a glance, check out this.

Just keep in mind that HTML is for the bare bones of the site (no colors, no extra space around text, etc.), CSS is for styling the website (add colors, blank space, padding, margins, etc.) and finally JavaScript is for making a website come alive (you could animate with CSS but JS or a back-end language are required for taking information in a form, processing data, display alert dialogs, etc.)

Good luck! ~Alex

I recomend you start learning once you know HTML and CSS. If yes, try it out!
