NOOOOO, you do not have to master them. The best way is to learn HTML and CSS to become familiar with them, and begin to learn Javascript. The power comes when you use three of them at the same time. There are so many tags properties that you would have to memorize and even might forget if you did not use them with Javascript.


Yes, because HTML and CSS is the backbone of a website or web application, learning them also make learning JavaScript easier because you will eventually need to use HTML or CSS, some JavaScript topic also have a close relationship with HTML or CSS like DOM.


if you're learning for front end web. yes, js is used to interact with the html. if you're using js for something else, its not really important.

Sao Paulo Odhiambo HTML CSS & JavaScript are required only if you wanna be a front end web developer. Although there are exceptions with JavaScript but still you can directly jump into Python!
