When I started web development I ended up learning the wrong programming languages and technologies because there was not a lot of guidance on web development at that time. In this article, I will tell you everything you need to do to become a web developer.
How to become a web developer
Web development is a big field. There are two types of web development you can do which are frontend development and backend development combining both of them there is full stack web development. So you need to choose one or learn both types of development.
If you want to learn web development by reading books then you can read this article where I have told you the best web development books to read – Best books to learn web development.
First, we have front-end development. A front-end developer is responsible for the design and looks of the website. You can become a frontend developer if you need to be creative while designing the website.
In order to become a frontend developer, you need to learn these languages and technologies which are required to develop a website.
Learn HTML Language
HTML is HyperText Markup Language which is the most basic and important language of the website. It is like the skeleton of the website where you use HTML to create elements on the website like buttons, heading, forms, and more.
You need to learn the HTML language. It is compulsory for a front-end developer. HTML is not a programming language so it is very easy to learn and understand. You can learn HTML within 1 or 2 weeks.
Learn CSS Language
CSS stands for cascading style sheets. It is a styling language that is used to design HTML elements by adding color, background, font, width, and height. It is like the skin of the skeleton or HTML you may call it.
CSS is also not a programming language so it is also an easy language to learn. You can learn CSS within 2 or 3 weeks.
You can also become a backend developer if you don’t want to do frontend development. Backend developer develops a backend where all the data which gets submitted is stored and API routes are created.
If a website needs to store data then they need to have a backend. To do backend development you need to know a programming language and a framework. There are many frameworks you can use but this which I am going to tell you is the best.
