    I don’t think that it is necessary but if you can at least understand how it works that will definitely help you in designing better user interface.

    You can easily get by without knowing javascript. However, I frequently find it necessary to make small changes to a .js file. The more you know about it, the easier that will be.

    It also helps to know a bit about javascript so that you can look at the scripts you are using and make sure that they are safe to use. If you don’t know the code, that would be difficult to do.

    I like what Uba said in that you don’t need to know how to WRITE it, but you should understand what it DOES, so you can orchestrate a plan for the final functionality of a website. Today’s websites and user interfaces can benefit greatly from JavaScript and it grows daily. You’ll be doing yourself a favor by starting to add little bits of it to your bag of tricks now.

    Hello Friend,
    I think you should know some programming basics such as how a programming language work, what is variable, function, object and class etc. If you get these knowledge you will feel better about programming can easily make good effects and functions with java script. Copy and paste is not a good approach for a web designer as well as web developer.
