Learning Web Development Part 0 - Introduction: A Primer For Newbies

Web Development is the process of developing websites or web services. Anything that users can consume online via web browsers can be considered a part of web development.

Learning basic web development is easy.
It involves learning about 4 different parts.
1. HTML
2. Javascript
3. CSS
4. Server Technologies


A web-based system generally looks like:        Web Client <-----------> Web Server

The client may request the server using different supported protocols. Websites may be static based, or dynamic based. For a static website, all we need to know is that there is an http web server that serves static files. The files that are generally served are HTML files. You web browser is a client that requests a web server for information, and usually the server responds with html if it’s an http server.

This is the introduction post for a series of posts that will cover various aspects of web development, and lets see how in depth we can get. I will cover the basics in the initial posts, and will try to touch a bit more serious stuff later on.

My next post will include things related to basics of :

  • HTML stands of Hyper Text Mark Up Language. A markup language basically adds meta information to content. This markup may add semantic meaning to the content, or it may allow a different presentation.
  • JavaScript is a scripting language used by most of the browsers for adding enhanced experience to the webpage. Things like triggering click events, and adding fancy overlays, basically handling all events in a web page programmatically is done through JavaScript.
  • CSS stands for Cascading Style Sheets. It is used to design the page to look a certain way.

Later I will try to get into setting up simple basic webservers with various languages and frameworks.
I look forward to seeing you there ;)

Cheers!
