Beginner Recommendations?

So I just started to get my feet wet over the last few months with web development. I feel like I definitely have a good grasp on HTML, CSS, Javascript and jQuery so far.

I'm looking for recommendations on what to tackle next. Open to any and all suggestions!

  • Hi Eric,

    As you feel ready to go with front-end static pages, I think the natural next step would be to learn a language for the back-end.

    The most popular language still the PHP, it's still easy to learn, it forgive you lot of mistakes, and because of its syntax close to the C, you would easy next discover other languages with more constraints. (Java, C#, ...)

    Plus, cheapest hosting packages always support PHP, ...

    But if you would to try fancy languages, (which I don't recommend), you can try Python, Ruby, Perl. The cons of those powerful languages is their syntax don't look like any other languages, and not all hosting companies offer hosting packages that support those kind of tech.

    So, go to PHP, and, Mysql, because a database would be immediately necessary.

    ;)
