How to Become a Web Developer



Web development can be a daunting topic to get started with. Unlike with conventional applications, not only do you need to be familiar with how the web works, but you also have to understand a variety of technologies and languages.

In this course, Envato Tuts+ instructor Jeremy McPeak will teach you everything you need to know to get started with web development.

You'll start by learning how to create web pages using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Not only that, but you'll learn about some of the fundamentals of the internet: URLs, DNS, HTTPS, and more!

Then you'll go on to a primer on JavaScript, learn how to use package management tools such as NPM and Bower, and then practice using the very powerful and popular jQuery framework for efficient manipulation of HTML. You'll learn how to use the Bootstrap CSS framework to jump-start your user interface and build responsive apps. Finally, you'll learn how to do DOM manipulation with vanilla JavaScript, how to fetch JSON data, and how to use CSS transitions.

Finally, you'll learn one of the fundamental languages for back-end web development: PHP. You'll learn how to set up a server on your own computer for development, and how to create a simple PHP application to render a web page. By the end, your app will be able to receive data from the user and respond to it.

To wrap things up, we'll create a functional blog app in PHP, with users and posts stored in a database. It's easier than you think!
