Not all Website building requires coding, those who are not fancy doing coding they can work on CMS. Even I started my web development career with CMS — Wordpress which is quite easy for everyone to understand. Coding requires a lot of time and attention if you are already doing a job not related to programming and other Development stuff then starting your Web Development career is easier with CMS. We will talk about Wordpress Later in this story.
How to Start Web Development?
There are two sites of web development client site scripting and server site scripting and both are different in their own meanings. HTML, CSS is client site scripting and PHP, SQL is server site scripting and both include a lot of languages and I am not going to list them all .Starting from HTML to PHP it is a very long journey for those who are not familiar with web coding. Let me give you a path to understand the features of Web Development.
Introduction to Client Site Scripting
- HTML 5
Starting from html5 (hyper text markup language) which was introduced in 2004. Html is used to make the infrastructure of a Website. It consists of a long chain of elements which tells our browser what to display for users. Html elements are called Tags e.g. <p> for paragraph, <h1> for Heading. Understanding HTML will take a month but you will carry CSS and JS with you for the whole month.
2. CSS 3
How your web page looks and feels is essential for creating an excellent first impression. Using CSS ( Cascading Style Sheet ) will help you make your website look fancy and attractive and it is easier to understand than HTML5. CSS3 was introduced in 2011, Back then everyone was using CSS2. CSS defines how your Html tag will look on a web page.
You can save a lot of time with CSS by doing little code and make it work on different pages of your website. It uses # and dot (.) to start the style by supporting curly brackets.
Now let’s discuss about a bigger chunk (Server Site Scripting)
SQL stands for Structured Query Language, It was introduced in the 1970s. SQL will let you access the database where you put all of your data of the website e.g., junk files, root files, media, visitors info and more. SQL is so powerful only using minor queries you can extract, insert, update, delete and edit someone else’s data from their database of their website. So you need to have a good command on SQL. Basically in ethical terms we use SQL to make connection between database and the root file to make it work for user browse and make conversion on site. It will hardly take a week to understand the common features and queries you want to use on site.
PHP is an acronym “ PHP — Hypertext Processor “, PHP7 was introduced in 2015. Code written with PHP can only be executable on servers. You can make your own CMS with it because it is used to code dynamically. PHP doesn’t bound you to make display media, text and any type of document. It takes around 2 weeks to learn for a freshman.
Introduction to Wordpress
Wordpress is a very common CMS (content management system), 35% of websites are made on Wordpress, It requires a theme and your media to show. If you are familiar with Photoshop then you can use it very easily because Wordpress panel and photo editors panel is very similar moreover Wordpress uses very kind and easy words on their panel to make it understand for everyone who are not related to tech. From Header to Footer you can make you web page full dynamical.
