The following details the steps you need to take to become a web developer – this is a question I get all the time by the way … you are not alone!
#1. Learn to code. You need the skills before you can sell them! Today (2014-2015) you need to learn the following technologies in this order:
- HTML5 & CSS3
- Twitter Bootstrap
- SQL & MySQL
- Object Oriented PHP (OOP in PHP)
To be clear, you don’t need to master all these before you get to step #2, #3 and so on … But you do need to see these as the ultimate goal.
… In fact, you could quickly move into step #2 once you have a good understanding of CSS and HTML under your belt. As you learn more though, you will be able to take on more jobs (simply because of the greater variety of skills you will have) and raise your pay/salary as you become more valuable and more experienced.
