Unsure when i should begin to learn JS

Hi coders
im a beginner and have learned some of the basic of HTML and CSS
and im unsure if i should finish the whole (responsive web design) all the courses before learning JS or if i should start learning JS now at the same time. :thinking:

ive been peeking at JS and im having a hard time truly understand everything :face_with_spiral_eyes: is there like any website that like simplifies JS or like give a good desription of what everything is/does?

I was also a beginner until I discovered freeCodeCamp and started working through the certifications.

I didn’t begin JavaScript until I had completed the HTML/CSS certifications, but it doesn’t mean that you can’t make a start if you feel ready now.

HTML and CSS are relatively straightforward as they are markup languages.
JavaScript is a scripting language and is quite tricky at first as there are a lot of new concepts to learn, but I found the freeCodeCamp course pretty comprehensive and a solid foundation. Don’t worry if it seems daunting at first, just take it a step at a time and research anything you don’t understand at first. There are endless resources out there to help you figure stuff out!

If you’re strongly motivated to start learning JavaScript before finishing the HTML and CSS sections you can, but generally I recommend following the curriculum in order.
