3. What to learn ?
A web developer must have a basic understanding of :
HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) :
The backbone of all websites.
CSS (Cascading Stylesheet) :
defines the color/style and layout of a website.
handles animations and interactive designs.
responsible for responsive design.
It makes websites interactive.
- A popular newer JS library worth checking is React.
Now-a-days everything depends upon data. To store and access data you need to know Database.
Their are many database but MySQL is the best one to get started.
Development Tools : It allows you to analyze every single line of your code. Infact you can see what style are being applied to each element.
I would recommend Chrome, the best development tool.
APIs (Application programming interfaces) :
- A great way to create a website is to leverage existing data and services. It gives you access to third-party data and functionality.
If you're new to APIs, start with Google.
Version control system :
It keeps a record of changes made to a code. It allows you to track changes.
Git is the most popular version control system.
Project management :
It is not enough to know how to code if you don't know how to interpret your ideas into product. project management plays an important role in developers life.
Learning never ends. There are many more things to learn.
4. Where to learn ?
-Their are so many courses available on platforms like Udemy, Coursera etc.
-Some websites like W3schools, Stack overflow etc. will also help you to understand the things better.
-Google and Youtube are also good friends of developers. :)
Everything takes time to learn and improve, these skills are not different either. In order to be a good developer you need to keep learning and improving slowly and steadily. It's not like a one day match or T20. It's like test cricket, you need to set yourself on the pitch and keep scoring.
