    A Comprehensive Guide To Learning Web Development

    JavaScript is important on the frontend, that's for sure. On the backend, it's an equally good choice as many other languages. The only pro I'd see is that you'd use one language for both the frontend and backend, which, to be fair, might be attractive to a beginner. I only mention it heavily...

    A Comprehensive Guide To Learning Web Development

    There are dozens of languages worth mentioning. I won't list all of them.

    A Comprehensive Guide To Learning Web Development

    I use so many sources when it comes to learning, not just one. It's very rare that you find everything you need to know from just one source.

    Are you struggling to get started?

    Identify which skill you'd like to learn (first). Pick a goal and work backwards. Youtube, Blogs, Books (I found these very helpful for moving to the intermediate/advanced stages, but you can find a lot of beginner books, too) or Podcasts are all at your disposal. If you tell me what you'd like...

    EXECUTION From Zero to Hero

    Best of luck. Keep us updated. If you immerse yourself in a subject for 30 days I'm sure you can see some progress.

    EXECUTION From Zero to Hero

    A quote I like: "You've done math for 12 years - and you still suck at it". Seriously thought, I've been learning about programming and development for the past three, four years or something like that and still feel like I've only scratched the surface of what's possible. 30 days? Seriously...

    EXECUTION From Zero to Hero

    Basically, what @ExaltedLife said. YFI, some of the wealthiest people on this planet are developers (think Bill Gates). How somebody calls himself doesn't tell you a lot about his financial situation. Some devs own (a slice of) multi-million dollar companies. And perhaps he's just a family guy...

    Are you struggling to get started?

    When it comes to getting in motion, ask yourself: what can you do? How can you provide value? If you don't know, you have your problem right there. Go figure that out. The reason it's hard to give generic advice on a forum like this is because there are so many people from so many walks of...

    Thanks, Andy! Appreciate it.

    Are you struggling to get started?

    If you're currently feeling stuck, uncertain or anything alike, this may be worth a read. In a way, I am writing this to myself - to remind myself of what I'll be talking about if I ever forget. I'll be sharing the top lessons (hint: they're all simple!) that got me going confidently. I'm still...

    Feedback on Landing Page/MVP

    As others have mentioned, the colors and design should be worked on. Have a look at some modern landing paged and you'll get a hang of how they work. I see some of that in your larger buttons already. Also, in regards to some of the copy: "Don't get distracted by unrelated content and finding...

    HOT TOPIC Introverts vs Extroverts (The forum is mostly introverts?)

    Definitely an introvert. But being an introvert doesn't mean not being cool with other people and socializing. We are humans. All of us need that. Some need more, some need less. For me, I found that I'm immensely productive when sitting at home, turning off the TV and staring at my PC fully...

    Web Programming with PHP (guide for non-engineers)

    In the context of this thread, they're not competing. If you plan on using PHP on the backend (which this thread was made for), you're not going to use the MEAN stack (no, we won't go into microservice architectures now :)) Just to add some more value to the beginners reading this: keep things...

    Web Programming with PHP (guide for non-engineers)

    Let's not get too nit-picky in this thread, but in that scenario, I'd probably create a function called frobunizeEncabulator() or something like that instead of commenting. For anybody reading: I'd recommend Clean Code by Robert Martin if you want to improve your coding style. Great read...

    Web Programming with PHP (guide for non-engineers)

    Sorry, you're right. I meant that, in the context of just a basic web app, it wouldn't be useful to use PHP to fetch data from a database without actually displaying it with HTML. But yes, REST services that are meant to process or fetch some kind of data from 3rd party endpoints don't need...

    Web Programming with PHP (guide for non-engineers)

    Warning: this is going to get subjective... Please don't comment everything. Or by that regard, every variable. Code should be readable without comments that explain what it does. If you can't express yourself in code, why do you think you can express yourself in comments? :) It's better to...

    Web Programming with PHP (guide for non-engineers)

    HTML and JavaScript are frontend technologies. PHP is a backend technology. They're not competing. PHP can be used together with HTML to fetch the data from a database (PHP) and display it (HTML), for example. And HTML without PHP (or, for that matter, any other backend language) is only good...
