I currently have basic skills in web dev. Like I can read some stuff and mess with it. Maybe even write some BASIC pages, but nowhere near what I would like to be able to do
irene82848dI'll patiently wait for when you'll give up because web dev is such a mess 🙃
Voxera54988dI have been doing web applications for 18 years.
I try to think partly as a client server where the page is the client.
Its not exactly the same unless you build single page applications.
What were you coding all this while? Web Apps or something other weird shit.
C0D4242468dWhat are you focusing on?
Web dev is like... *tries to think of some other chaotic mess of never ending changes that need a delicate balance and planing*... building a city.
From above it’s a beautiful landscape, but once you start driving around and dealing with the traffic congestion of ideas, frameworks, processors, deployment strategies, requirements, contradictions, fuck the list never ends!
Good luck my little city builder.
@error503 I MAINLY do C++, and I don't really do much web related stuff even then. I have done pages that are meant for like information, so nothing fancy, just some simple HTML/CSS.
@C0D4 At this very moment I want to focus more on design/frontend because it's something I'm personally very bad at.
Any tips anyone can give for a beginner web dev?
Probably the best advice I got on webdesign about 15 years ago was to start things on paper. How do you want things to be connected? How do you want that to appear? How does your database interact with your visual elements, and your back end elements? Draw it!
Fast forward to today, and with so much being mobile first oriented, that advice has paid off big time.
Web development isn't difficult; it's confusing. It's a bunch of simple related pieces forming a fucking conglomerate of fuckery that is impossible to sort out without extensive experience... unless you have drawn the blueprint. I've heard from a lot of my devs that when they learnt, they covered drawing the shit out in like a 10 min lecture.
freeCodeCamp has a nice "tasting course" of how lots of individual elements work. W3schools/mozilla are essential references. Codepen.io is a great sandbox to steal ideas from. and best for last: https://github.com/kamranahmedse/...
