Is HTML/CSS/JScript the best start for a beginner?

Recommended Posts

As I said in my introduction, it took me a long time to introduce myself to the basic concepts of programing due to the lack of time and money to dedicate myself completely.

I need some input from experience programmers about the best language to learn in. My initial impulse was to learn html,css and jscript because it is the most popular part of the scene and there is a lot of work available for ppl who are versatile in before mentioned languages.

 

Was I wrong? Any suggestions are welcome.

thate tough to say. What's your overall goal?

 

While php/jQuery/html/css is great there are a lot of other technologies out there.

 

I know the above, but have been thinking about picking up Ruby on Rails or node.js. Both are very popular, node.js would be nice because it's all a single language used both on the server and client side. It's all JavaScript.

When I got into programing my goal was to learn the ropes just for fun. Now, since its fun and I see that I can do it, I am interested in making some money from it. It is not my profession but I am drawn to it. I dont have preferences about languages, just want to learn and have fun, the money will come later.

 

I heard a lot about Ruby, alegedly it is great for beginners and is really useful. Heard about node but dont know anything about it.

If you want to learn web design the four key languages are HTML, CSS, PHP, and Javascript. You will also want to learn a bit about MySQL and how to work with it using PHP. Start with HTML and CSS. Learn to do the designing. Once you have that down start learning JS and PHP. Javascript is used primarily to manipulate HTML and CSS dynamically. You can use it to change an element's color by clicking a button or creating a live chat box. But you need to learn how to create with HTML and CSS before you start learning how to manipulate it via user input with JS. PHP is used for security, server side actions, and database management. It's what you use to store a new user it a database upon registration or header people away from pages they aren't supposed to access. People can change your HTML, CSS, & Javascript (anything client side) but they can't mess with your PHP because it's server side. This is why it is used for security.

 

Anyway just a basic overview. Hope that helps! :)

If уоu want to learn ѕоmething nеw in 2015, why nоt make it WordPress?

This is so true. Math has become much, much easier since I started programming. I am able to think more logically about every aspect of life really.

HTML and css are one of the easiest languages available. I do think that you have made the right choice by learning this languages. They also make a person more inclined towards programming languages.

Yes your right beginner must know the Html, CSS, JavaScript, that's the foundation of next generation language and other language that can develop a website. before you go on developing good quality websites like company websites, online shopping websites, online systems  and like social media networking websites you must know the basic language first so that the flow of your development is balance , yes balance, why? because every websites development or system development are always facing many problems but if you have good knowledge on all language that you need to make that website, you can solve all the problems and make the flow easier instead of you just learn the PHP Language first but you don't know the CSS. maybe you can't solve all  the problems your going to face during developing, if you don't know the CSS it means you don't know how to design a websites. so i suggesting to know the basic first before you make your team or personal project worst.

The best answer. HTML and CSS are the easiest languages that one can start learning.

Learning HTML/CSS would be the perfect choice. HTML would be the perfect choice for a beginner. It allows you to create majority of the webpage and adding CSS to it would make it look even more beautiful. Later on, you can learn javascript for form validations and to add even more functionality to your website.

Hmm... HTML is not a programming language per se, I see it more as text formatting, but I don't see anything wrong with starting with HTML, it deals with programming extensively so you'll eventually start out on the road to coding. I always recommend starting out with Python due to its simplicity, you'll learn basic programming notions and find out if it works for you :)

I recommend Learn to code to start. Will get you coding immediately, and a great chance to get some experience to decide what to focus on further. They have HTML, CSS and JavaScript courses. Perfect for absolute beginners.
