Learn these to become a web developer


There are hundreds of different programming languages, so which one is right for you?

As technology advances and we discover more ways to use it, there are more specialized programming languages than ever.

But, despite all these different languages, there are only three that you need to learn to begin your career as a web developer.

HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

If you don’t know where to start, this guide will help you learn a bit about each language.

Today, I’ll give you all three.

HTML

HTML stands for Hypertext Markup Language. We use HTML to structure a website’s content into different blocks and sections, like headings, lists, paragraphs, boxes, and much more.

Once you get the basics, HTML is pretty easy to use as we break it down into different elements.

<html>
  <head>
    <title>My First Web Page</title>
  <body>
    <h1>Hello World</h1>
    <p>This is a paragraph.</p>
  </body>
</html>

CSS

If HTML is about organizing content, CSS is about styling it. With CSS, we define how lists, paragraphs, and other things look, including spacing, colors, sizes, animations, and much more.

Without CSS, websites would basically be a text file or a word document. But thanks to it, websites as beautiful as apple ’s are possible.

CSS makes it possible for us to easily update apps, websites, and other things on different devices with different dimensions or requiring different elements.

CSS provides easy flexibility to control how things look and how people interact with what you build, no matter where or how they use it.

h1 {
  color: blue;
  font-size: 24px;
}

JavaScript

HTML and CSS give structure and consistent style to websites and apps.

Javascript makes them fun.

In short, Javascript helps us turn a website from a simple static page with information into an interactive page that keeps users engaged. It is also responsible for all the logic and functionality in a website, powering interactive elements, dynamically loading information, and even handling gaming logic into your websites.

function whyLearnJavaScript() {
  alert("Because it's fun!");
}

Here you can try that piece of JavaScript code:

One important thing to mention

As time progressed and technology advanced, things requiring JavaScript have now become possible with CSS or HTML.

As developers and designers get more creative, and those creations become standards, new things get added to all three, and staying up to date with the latest is the best way to succeed in this field.

Is it worth to learn web dev and JavaScript?

I teach beginners to build websites and write programs with JavaScript.

Here’s why:

  • JavaScript is a universal: language-it’s everywhere, and knowing it makes you more valuable no matter what you are doing.
  • JavaScript experts are in demand: It is one of the best ways to start getting paid quickly.
  • JavaScript experts make good money: because there are so many jobs, you can make money with JavaScript quickly.
  • JavaScript is beginner-friendly.

With these three languages under your belt, you have everything you need to begin creating almost anything, websites, apps, and even games-and getting paid for it.

But, JavaScript developers are in high demand, so don’t wait to begin learning it today.
