6 rules you don't want to be missing in web development

Programming and web development have become some of the most demanded skills, with more sources of employment and better pay in the workplace, so several people have been interested in learning them.

Today most startups are related to the world of technology, and in general, almost all businesses and companies need a website, because the Internet is the main way to search for information.

For this reason, it is logical that people capable of developing websites and web applications are in high demand, as their skills are extremely beneficial for most companies.

In addition, there is so much demand and programming is such a practical skill, that there is not even a need for a degree in engineering or computer science, as long as you have the necessary knowledge and experience, and you have a good portfolio to show.

These tips could make it easier for you to learn web development:

1. Learn HTML, CSS and JavaScript

When you’re just starting to research web development, how to learn it and how to get a job, you’ll probably find several titles, such as Front end developer, Back end developer, Full stack developer, Dev ops engineer, and so on.

The most important thing is to know that a front end developer implements what the user sees and how it interacts with the site. This involves HTML, CSS and JavaScript technologies, as well as others like Sass or React, but these have been created based on the three lines mentioned above.

On the other hand, a back end developer takes care of what the user does not see, therefore, is on the server side. Things like databases, account creation and management and other things. Many languages and technologies can be used here, including JavaScript (the most popular language on the web).

But when you’re just starting out, you don’t need to worry about all these decisions, and whatever you end up doing, start and know at least a little bit about front end and its technologies: HTML, CSS and JavaScript; it will allow you to understand the basics of web development, and start seeing your progress from the beginning. So it’s worth learning at least the basics of these technologies.

2. Make sure you understand the basics

When we’re starting to learn something and we’re excited about it, it’s normal to want to learn how to do all those things we love to do, such as our favorite web apps.

However, in an area like programming, making sure you really understand the basics of programming is extremely important, because we’ll know why we should do a certain thing to solve a problem.

For example, understanding when an if statement evaluates true or false, when an else statement is evaluated, understanding when a condition is true and when it is false, what is happening in each iteration of a for loop, how to make sure that a while loop will have an end or what the arguments of a function are; will allow you to feel more comfortable looking for solutions via code.

3. Follow a curriculum

The internet is full of resources for learning programming and web development, with excellent interactive tutorials, videos, articles, courses and books. But sometimes it can be difficult to know where to start and what to learn.

For this reason, it’s worth looking for courses that focus on teaching the basic skills you need, and that follow a curriculum, as these courses will cover what you should know to start with, and will probably include projects that will allow you to do more meaningful things.

There are the well-known Bootcamps which are generally very good, but they are also expensive and are not the only courses that exist. FreeCodeCamp is a completely free resource that shows you front end, back end and full stack completing projects. Udemy also offers courses at very affordable prices and with great content.

4. Complete projects

Most people with experience in programming and web development will advise completing a project.

But this could be very intimidating for someone just getting started.

Resources like FreeCodeCamp focus on projects, so it’s a great source for what to do, and can be complemented with other resources that focus more on theory and syntax.

In general, completing projects is a great way to learn because you will end up creating something functional, no matter how simple, and you will have learned new things in the process.

The important thing is to challenge yourself, but knowing your limits, and doing things you know you can complete with dedication.

5. Don’t be overwhelmed by the choice of languages and technologies

One of the most intimidating things about web development, especially in the JavaScript ecosystem, is the emergence of new technologies such as frameworks, libraries or APIs every few years.

Web development is one of the areas of programming with more people working on it today, and for this reason people are constantly creating new tools to make the job easier.

But there is no need to learn each of these new technologies, even if you already have a lot of experience, because these are tools, and you should learn them when you really think they are necessary for what you are trying to do.

If you find yourself, for example, trying to decide which language/framework to learn for back end, you can use the language in which you feel most comfortable, or the one with the most learning resources or more jobs.

6. Be patient and enjoy the journey

Programming and web development are areas where there is a lot of knowledge and practice involved, and basically you decide when to stop learning, because there is always something new to learn.

There are lots of stories of people without any previous computer knowledge or experience, who started learning web development and programming and got a job after a few months or a few years.

It’s okay to want to get that dream job, but it’s also important to really enjoy what you’re doing and learning. Web programming and development allows you to create, express yourself and improve your logic, which will allow you to do a lot of exciting things.
