A beginners guide to Web app development

Web development is an emerging field, with thousands of new developers making their debut every year. However, with all the learning material out there, it can be difficult to know where to start. Today, we will take you through a complete guide to your web development journey, from basic development to job interviews.

What skills do you need as a web developer?

Anyone can become a web developer. You do not need a fancy degree in computer science to master the skills, but before you start looking for jobs in the field, there are some things you will need to learn.

Basics of how the Internet and websites work Basics of HTML, CSS and JavaScript Libraries and frameworks, such as jQuery, React.js and Bootstrap Other programming languages, such as Python and Ruby (only for back-end web devs) Git and GitHub

Do not let it dominate you. All these skills are inherently distant from each other, so it is important to learn slowly and take it step by step, developing a solid foundation. Okay, now you know what's ahead of you. Start learning!

Foundational stuff ?

Website: A collection of files and information that we access through computers and servers

Servers: Computers that store all the data of websites in a large network

Browsers: programs that load and display content on your computer

Every website consists of frontend (client side) and backend (server side). The frontier includes everything that a user will see and experience directly when they visit a website. The backend is behind the scenes where information is stored, sent, and received. Everything you see on the website, like the one you are seeing right now, is made up of HTML, CSS and JavaScript files.
