Becoming a Web Developer in 2019

Oh My! How the times have changed. We've come a long way over the past few centuries.

Back in the day programming seemed easier to learn. Even when the internet started becoming popular we only had HTML, CSS, Javascript, and PHP. Nowadays learning web development can seem overwhelming because there are so many things to learn.

So, what should you learn in 2019 in order to become a web developer? Brace your self for the answer...

HTML, CSS, and Javascript! That's right... Even though the web has exploded in popularity and there are so many things to learn, you are still going to benefit by hammering down the fundamentals.

If you are new to Web Development you will want to get these 3 languages down and know them well. Then you may want to move on to learning PHP or NodeJS. After that it's all up to you. And lucky for you there are so many places to learn. Here are 2 simple resources to help you get started.

The DevDojo Guides (Learn HTML, CSS, and Javascript)
