DOM - Document Object Model

How much and to what extend DOM knowledge is needed for a front end developer?
How to learn DOM besides W3C documentation and some sporadic youtube videos?
Again, is it necessary?

DOM understanding is essential to frontend because it is the means by which you access documents and elements via JS. Maybe try the DOM introduction article on MDN, I usually prefer the MDN documentation over W3C.

Thank you, vohumanah.

It is important if you want to be a web developer to understand how the DOM works.

This is the best tutorial explaining it that I have found: (watch part 1 and part 2)

Thanks a lot, gwenf…I watched these videos and also reading the documentation vohumanah suggested. Awesome resources. I can say, I know DOM now :slight_smile: but practising will make it better, of course!
