To become a web programmer, there are three things you must do:
- Pick a server side programming language (PHP, Ruby, Java etc) and learn it well.
- Build dynamic websites.
… OK, back to the article:
If your web design skills is limited to using Dreamweaver or some other web design program, and you donâ€™t know HTML and CSS well … you will have to go back and learn that.
You donâ€™t have to become an HTML and CSS guru and know every bit about it, but you should understand the basic principles of these languages and understand how to properly use them.
Pick a server side programming language (PHP, Ruby etc) … and learn it well.
Server side programming languages are the languages that glue everything together … most of the time, this means connecting web pages to databases.
For example, you could use a server side language (like PHP, Java etc) to capture information people fill into web forms, and then insert that information into databases … then send that information back to the web pages again.
If you want to learn more about this, check out my classic article on database driven websites. Or, if you are excited and you want to learn the most popular server side programming language (PHP) …. then you can check out my beginners course on PHP.
Bottom line: you need to pick a language and learn it well. Your choice of language depends on a few factors:
- If you want to work for large companies or for small. If it is large companies you like, that means you need to get into Java and .Net. If you are more inclined to do your own thing or work for a startup, then PHP or Ruby would be a better choice.
- Your taste: some people prefer Ruby while others prefer PHP. For example, PHP is easier to learn (I would argue) than Ruby, Java or .NET, but PHP looks a little messy compared to the aforementioned languages.
- Your current skill level coming into this: if you are new to programming then PHP or Ruby would be a better choice over Java.
After you know one programming language and you are comfortable with it … it is time to learn another!
… I actually think it is a great idea to learn a few languages, because with each new language that you learn, your programming skills will just get that much better.
