11.1 Conclusion

Becoming a web developer is more than just working in the browser. Web developers write applications, and you are on that path. I encourage you to continue learning HTML, JavaScript, and PHP. But when you're comfortable, branch out to other languages and platforms. The more exposure and experience you have with other languages and platforms, the better you'll become as a developer.

My name is Jeremy McPeak, and from all of us here at Envato Tuts+, thanks for watching.

11.1 Conclusion

Before I leave you, here are a few things that I hope you take away from this course. First, I hope you have a better understanding of how the web works in general. In the first few lessons, you learned about networks, DNS, HTTP, and the web server. Now, you won't use all of that information all of the time. In fact, you won't even have to worry much about IP addresses or DNS, unless if you are responsible for setting them up, but you at least have an idea of how they work. Second, I want to emphasize the relationship between the technologies that we use to create web pages. We use HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to build interactive web pages that engage our users. We use HTML to add structure to our documents, because without it, we'd have just a jumbled mess of text. We rely upon CSS to apply style to our documents. And we can even use it to change the layout of our page without modifying any of our markup. And then of course, there's JavaScript. And with it, we can add behaviour to our pages. We can manipulate elements and change the style applied to them, as well as respond to user's actions with events. And then finally, there's PHP. And with it, you now know how to write code that executes on the server. You know how to accept user input stored in a database and retrieve that data in order to display it in the browser. That's a rather long winded way of saying that you are well on your way to becoming a web developer. Thank you so much for watching this course. Please feel free to contact me through Twitter or the Tuts+ forums if you have any questions. From all of us here Tuts+, thank you and I will see you next time.
