    Hello experts and experienced members,

    I am a newbie Web Designer, and I've been practicing a lot.
    SEMrush
    Now, I've decided to dive into Web Development. But I don't know yet any programming language for Web Development.

    So I need your tips and advise on what's the right for me to learn FIRST.

    PHP, RUBY or PHYTON?

    In terms of market share and ease of use, PHP is your best bet. I think as a web developer, you NEED to know the language and use it.

    This said, I always think that trying to find work by learning less common or more specialized skills is also a very good thing - so as long as you learn them properly, Python and Ruby might both be also interesting routes to take, even though maybe a tiny bit riskier. I have had many friends that were hired by Japanese companies thanks to their advanced knowledge of the Ruby language.

    Thanks for the input, Ive thought of that too... Learn the less common language.

    But anyhow, I think I'm gonna learn PHP first.

    Probably that's why Japanese demands Ruby Programmer, since the creator of Ruby is Japanese.

    If you want to learn programming you don't start with a language, you start by learning programming - algorithms, data structures, classes, etc. Start with Algorithms & Data Structures.pdf

    Then you'll need HTML and CSS (if you don't already know them) and Javascript for client-side coding. (If you don't understand the difference between server-side code and client-side code, learn that first.) For server-side code I'd recommend PHP first, since it's the easiest. You'll also need to learn SQL if you want to interact with databases.

    you are a designer right ? so let me tell you bro .. start from HTML 5 and CSS3 then move to css grid systems (fixed and fluid). after that before starting programing i prefer learning c++ so you will get basic idea about programming then after that start from PHP. i wont prefer starting from CMS cause it make u lazy :). after you have good knw in php try learning wordpress or joomla if you need to be a CMS developer. if you want to be a web application developer try learning some frame works in php like codeignitor / yii / zend etc. aahhh i forget in between you can try your hand on JAVASCRIPT / jquery :)
