Learn “Web”

I get asked several times from young people I teach and entry level software developers, what are all the must know languages & technologies? I used to say, learn one language well, lay a good foundation, this should help them to learn any language in the future. C is the first language I recommend, for its simplicity and powerlessness. Next one is web, when I say web, I mean HTTP, HTML(+CSS) & JavaScript. Not one, not two, all three of them.

Here are two step-by-step tutorials to learn basic and advanced HTML & CSS.

  1. A Beginner’s Guide to HTML & CSS
  2. An Advanced Guide to HTML & CSS
  3. Web development for beginners
