Hey Amakhyon,

There are many, many JavaScript developers out there who have very little working knowledge of CSS. To answer your question to the fullest extent of accuracy, yes, you can absolutely bypass learning CSS in favor of just learning JavaScript and HTML. You should, however, at least understand some basic CSS principles.

If you want the most $$ for your job you should go in-depth into JavaScript as an application programmer / senior front end developer. Start working with popular libraries and frameworks such as Node.js, AngularJS, Backbone or other MVC/MVVM JavaScript frameworks. You will find these to be in high demand at the moment. We have many JavaScript developers here at our organization that know very little about CSS. It is possible, but if you plan on a career in front-end development I highly recommend CSS NOT be left out of your learning cirriculum.
