Web Programming for 2013 … and Beyond!
Web programmers have to keep on their toes – you can’t let yourself fall behind using old technology that nobody is interested in. Flash anyone?
… I didn’t think so! Ok, let’s start:
1. PHP is STILL King of the Server Side!
PHP is the most popular and the most approachable server-side programming language out there. Its’ duct-tape like feel, has made it mega popular and today, you see many important open source projects (that you can use) are built using PHP:
- shopping carts
- social networking tools
… And many more. Learn PHP and you will see your salary shoot up and the number of jobs shoot up.
2. HTML5 & CSS3
It think this one is easy … everything and everyone is going HTML 5 and CSS 3:
- Android (Google)
- iOS / Max OSX (Apple)
- Windows (Microsoft)
… This includes all the major web browsers of course.
When people talk about HTML 5, they are really talking about a group of technologies that work together:
- HTML 5
- CSS 3
HTML 5 and CSS 3 are basically very powerful extensions to HTML and CSS … and so if you understand the basic principles and techniques of these two foundation web languages, HTML5 and CSS3 should be approachable. That said, the added power does present some head scratching challenges a long the way. No worries though, we have the easy to follow training for you.
A note on Java:
That’s all for now,
