Introduction

When I first discovered web development, it was like I discovered a whole new world of information and possibilities that I could hardly get enough of. I had finally found something that completely satisfies both sides of my brain: I creatively design beautiful websites using my right brain, and I logically program them using my left brain. Also, my heart is just as satisfied as my mind because I use my web development skills to undertake meaningful projects and contribute to worthy causes that make the world a better place.

Now, the idea of a world of information is exciting, but it can also be intimidating. Where do you start? What should you learn, and how do you learn it? Because I’ve been through the ups and downs of learning web development, I’ve decided to write this book to help you through them. I can put you on the fast track of becoming a web developer by teaching you where to start, how to develop your skills, and what you need to do to be successful.

This book is written specifically for beginners with little to no knowledge of web development. In Step 1, I’ll help you to see the big picture of web development, including how several technologies work together in the website-building process. In Step 2, I’ll show you the best resources for studying this topic so you can quickly get started in developing your knowledge and skills. Then in Step 3, I’ll explain how you can get your own website up and running and start building your personal portfolio. Steps 4-9 will explore different programming languages and web technologies that are foundational to web development.

Finally, in Step 10, I’ll describe how you can advance your career as a freelance web developer.

Lastly, I’d like you to know that whoever you are, and wherever you are in life, you can become a web developer. I was 25 when I discovered this field; I
