What to learn to be a web developer?

Today we are going to talk about a question that is coming to me a lot lately, that people are asking me a lot, which is as follows web developer:

  • What do I have to learn to be a web developer?
  • What do I have to do to be a web programmer?
  • Where do I start in the web world?
  • How to learn web development easily and from scratch?

What I am going to tell you is my point of view , it is not an absolute and definitive truth and I do not tell you that it is the only way to become a web developer, but I will tell you the path that I have followed and the path that I consider it more natural to be a web developer today, to become a good web programmer and work on this.

My method of knowing what to learn to be a web developer consists of 7 clear steps.

0. Have desire, patience, perseverance, and passion

The most important thing I would say to devote yourself to web development is to feel like, be patient and that you like it. Passion I would say.

You have to be patient and you like it a lot, because if you are not going to get tired very soon because the developing world is very complicated and requires many hours of solitary work at home learning things.

1. Learn HTML

If you want to be a web developer it is important to master HTML correctly.

HTML is a markup language that allows us to define the structure of a web page, through tagging labels we can define it, so it is the basis of any web page.

If you don’t know HTML, you can’t keep moving forward in the world of web programming, it is essential to learn this.

2. Learn CSS

The next thing is to learn how to style the web page with CSS (Cascading Style Sheets), which is the language that will allow us to give the web an appearance.

It is important to know how to stylize a web and the next natural step after learning HTML

3. Learn JavaScript

Once we know the previous two points, the next thing to learn to be a web developer would be JavaScript, which is a booming language because technologies such as NodeJS, Angular, and many more that allow us to do incredible things on the websites are coming out.

With JavaScript, it will allow us to provide interactivity to the web and all internet websites use it.

4. Stop studying and get to practice

Why do I say this? Because now comes the time to master what has been learned and join all the pieces of the puzzle. What you should do is to make a complete website and give it some interactivity with JavaScript.

5. Learn databases and SQL

Now it’s time to learn some backend and before learning any other programming language it is important to master the databases and the SQL language.

So stop and learn this well, I would choose MySQL, learn to design a database and learn to do all types of the query in SQL.

This is a critical point where many people fail.

6. Learn a back-end language (PHP, NodeJS)

In this step, you must learn a backend language like PHP that will allow us to make our website dynamic and interact with databases.

7. Take the professional leap by learning: Symfony, Angular, NodeJS, Bootstrap, Less

And finally, I recommend you learn the leading frameworks and technologies that I teach in my online web development courses and that the professional market is requesting worldwide.

Well, these would be the most important steps to become a web programmer and we already know in broad strokes what to learn to be a web developer.
