Becoming a web developer is easy — this is the opinion of most people when talking about creating websites. But how things are working in practice? We can say that any person is capable of becoming a developer in this field. But not everyone who states this has achieved significant success in such difficult activity. It is necessary to start somewhere though.
These basic concepts will help beginners who want to try themselves in creating websites and web applications to join development technologies.
Everyone starts with HTML, as it is the basis for building sites. At the moment, good web developers are those who perfectly know HTML, the fifth version in particular. HTML is a hypertext markup language. It is built into absolutely all browsers and is the standard of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). Also, if the code is written in the PHP programming language, the browser automatically interprets it into the HTML markup language. In general, HTML is the standard for a web document and without it, pages cannot exist.
It is possible to draw an analogy with the frame of the house and its external side (shell). HTML is the frame of a building, and CSS is its front side, shell. CSS sets the styling of elements on the page, and in the third version, it is possible to create more dynamically beautiful objects. Previously, learning CSS wasn’t something mandatory, but now it’s not the case anymore. Of course, you can create a website without touching the CSS code at all, however, the person who works like this will look like a beginner looking at the source code of the site.
Do not forget that almost every day there are new technologies, and old ones are also regularly updated. If something fails, do not be upset, because understanding comes with experience. The work of a web programmer is a continuous learning curve that never ends.
