How I Started in Web Development

How I Started in Web DevelopmentKarel MoryoussefBlockedUnblockFollowFollowingMay 5Around half of the world’s population goes on the web every single day, but how many people actually know how it works or the skills necessary do to any form of web development.

A few months ago, I developed a website for one of my family members on Weebly.

I was dragging and dropping elements on the webpage.

And even though I didn’t actually code the site, I felt extremely proud of myself when I had finished building it.

Two months later, I decided to start learning about web development, and that is when my adventure began!If you aspire to become a web developer and you don’t know where to start, or not sure about what to learn, you’ll find all the fundamentals you need to master to become a web developer in this article.

The Must Know TechnologiesHTML, CSS, and Javascript are the three core technologies you’ll want to master if you’re going to become a web developer.

HTML: Often referred to the “nouns” of a web page, HTML or Hyper Text Markup Language is the most basic building block of the web.

It defines the layout and structure of a web page.

HTML is not a programming language as it doesn’t understand logic.

It is a markup language and only used to display elements on a web page.

CSS: CSS or Cascading Style Sheets is a stylesheet language used to describe the presentation of a document written in HTML.

CSS is responsible for the appearance of your web page.

It allows you to change font size, add background-colors, borders, and plenty of other things.

You add styles to your HTML elements to make your web page pretty.

We talk about CSS as the “adjectives” of a Web Page.

If you want to go a bit further in CSS, you can learn Flexbox, a CSS3 web layout model used to arrange your website in a simple way.

Javascript: This is the first real programming language of the web you’ll need to learn.

It is used in pretty much every website you visit.

Javascript, called the “verbs” of a webpage, allows you to add functionality to your site.

You can add amazing animations and interactive effects to make your web page look more appealing to the viewer.

Javascript is one of the most straightforward programming languages.

Now and then, a new language is created, and it may feel challenging to choose the next one.

Bootstrap:Bootstrap is a framework for HTML and CSS developed by Twitter.

Like Sass, Bootstrap helps write CSS faster and more efficiently.

It contains HTML and CSS-based design templates for typography, forms, buttons, navigation and other interface components.

Sass:Sass is a CSS preprocessor.

It adds new functionalities to CSS and makes CSS more comfortable to write and maintain.

It’s also effortless to learn.

One you learn Sass, you won’t want to go back to regular CSS.

Javascript frameworks allow you to create fully functional websites in a matter of hours.

Javascript frameworks are instrumental when making sizeable front-end applications.

Although I chose React as it is the most popular and fastest growing javascript framework, there are many others such as Ember js, Angular and Vue js that do similarly the same things as React.

As a side note, if you wish to keep track of your progress and make your life as a web developer more manageable, you may want to learn to use Github ↓Git and Github:Git is a “version control system,” and GitHub is the most popular Git service.

Git allows you to save your projects, backup your files, share your work & collaborate with other developers.

For example, Javascript cannot access databases or web pages hosted on different domains.

Most importantly, you cannot directly access memory from javascript.

An example of a programming language capable of accessing memory would be C++ (used for gaming).

WebAssembly is a programming language developed by W3C, Google, Microsoft, Apple, and Mozilla.

It is very similar to Javascript and can do mostly the same things.

Its main advantages over Javascript are that it can directly access memory and it runs much faster than Javascript.

Its main con is that WebAssembly is very complex and challenging to learn, much more complicated than Javascript.

WebAssembly was never created to replace Javascript and JS will probably keep its dominant role in the Web Development Industry for a long time.

Take ActionSometimes, I think of that day when I started programming, and I look where I am today.

I feel so excited about what I’ve learned, and I just want to keep growing in that field.

I highly encourage to take Colt Steele’s Course “The Web Developer Bootcamp.
