- You don't have to know everything there is to know about JS, but there's a pretty good summary about what you should know in this article:
If you're still unsure of your knowledge, take the JS quiz:
- so clearly jQuery and Js is just the same language but jQuery use less more code or what can someone pls tell me(3 votes)
- You're absolutely right.
- What's the difference between java and js(1 vote)
- Can it work with python(1 vote)
- Is it a bad idea to start the jQuery course after skipping the DOM course in Khan Academy?(1 vote)
- I would say yes, because jQuery relies heavily on knowledge of the DOM. Everything you do in jQuery starts by acting on a 'selector', which is a CSS definition of an HTML DOM element. So if you don't know what the DOM is, how it works, what common elements are... jQuery won't really be of much use to you.
It's a bit like taking a French literature course without knowing much French - you'll get a lot more out of it if you have a bigger vocabulary.(2 votes)

- I started doing the normal JS in webpages, but heard this was easier. Is it ok that i started this without finishing that?(1 vote)
- You should be fine learning jQuery. I would recommend learning regular JS DOM manipulation after you're done, though.(1 vote)
