The 0-100 Guide

If you want to become a web developer, you have come to the right place. Sure, there are loads of ways to learn web development, but as a beginner you’re going to need a particular education. Knowing where to start is…well…a good start!

 Let me start by listing what you will need before you can really call yourself a web developer:

  1. Basics of computer science
  2. Basics of code editing
  3. Overview of tools such as version control or package managers
  4. Learn the languages of HTML, CSS and Javascript
  5. Learn about Front End Libraries
  6. Learn your back-end basics, you need to know your servers from your databases.

 If that sounds like a lot, it is unfortunately. It is important you take this journey one step at a time, so that you don’t get overwhelmed. Try to see things through to the end so that you’re only moving on once you’ve learned and finished with a particular topic. Remember, this is a long-term endeavour you’ve undertaken, ranging anywhere from 6-24 months to land your first job.

 Thankfully, however, this site will support you at every step of your learning journey. Check out the cheatsheet library where many of the steps above are discussed step-by-step, with no step skipped and in a lot more detail.
