1.1 Introduction

Welcome to How to Become a Web Developer. My name is Jeremy McPeak, and I'm going to teach you some of the most important aspects of web development. Let's get started!

1.1 Introduction

So you want to be a web developer, but you're a bit overwhelmed with, well, everything. And that's perfectly understandable, because most of us have been in your shoes. Hi there, I am Jeremy McPeak. And in this course, I will help you understand the things that you need to know to get started as a web developer. We'll start this course by discussing the tools you'll need, not just for this course but for web development in general. We live in a fantastic time where tools are plentiful. And they can actually be difficult to find the tools that we love to use. Next, I will give you an overview of how the Internet works. There are a lot of technologies that work behind the scenes to make it function. I'll then introduce you to HTML and CSS. And teach you the fundamentals of each language so that you can mark up your pages and style them. Then we'll dive into some JavaScript. Now, JavaScript itself is a huge topic. And there's a few things that I've picked out that you just need to know. And you will learn those key concepts so that you can get started using it in your pages. After that, we'll jump into php. And you'll learn how to write code that executes on the server so that you can accept user input and process data. We have a ton of ground to cover. So when you're ready, cue up the next video, and we will get started.
