Javascript Learning Question.

  • # June 23, 2013 at 8:26 pm

    Should you really have a background in Javascript before learning jQuery? is it really necessary? and if so how necessary?

    # June 23, 2013 at 8:31 pm

    Yes I believe you should, the basics of JavaScript will go a long way into Jquery for example in javascript a click function could be

    document.getElementById(“#Your Element”).onclick = YourFunctionName

    Whereas in Jquery it is very transferable an example would be -
    $(“#YourElement”).click(function(){
    });

    Although it is not necessary it helps and will give you a better understanding before going into Jquery.

    I guess thats why I can’t progress in jQuery because I don’t really know javascript at all.
