    Hey guys, there are tons of advices on forums, YA etc but it's a IM forum, so I wanna ask here.

    I want to start learning web programing only.

    I've got a few languages in mind.

    1st Question : I wanna learn a few languages that will let me make a fully functioning website, which languages are needed for that? I think html, css, php and Javascript, am I wrong?

    2nd Question : How long would it take to master those 4 languages on a level which will let me make websites easily. I can dedicate over 10 hours per day and I'm a pretty fast learner.

    I know Javascript is a huge language, but, to become at least good (not pro) at those 4 languages, will a month be enough? I mean a month of full dedication. I took a look at html and looks like a piece of cake, I think I'll do fine, I know others are much more difficult though.

    It's a rough comparison and questions are a bit inappropriate as well, but you get what I'm trying to find out, right? I'd appreciate an answer.

    Cheers

    You can try Lynda Tutorials for the above languages after which you can easily make a fully functioning website.

    Learning how to make a Fully functional website in 8 days? Bro, you must be kidding :D

    OP
    Hard road ahead. Internet is your friend. Use it. Also search for the "complete web developer course" shared by bk071 in BHW.

    Everything depends on what you're trying to build/achieve. If you're really new to all of this I would get started with a crash course in html & css, learning these is a must.
    After you get familiar with the syntax and when you know all the basic elements the fastest way to start buitlding your own sites is to use a CMS so you don't have to code the 'core' of your project yourself. For beginners Wordpress will be the most obvious choice.
    When you learn to work with such a platform you'll have time to start incorporating your own code little by little. This way you won't get overly intimidated and you will see results instantly.
    If you want to get your hands dirty and do all of it yourself you'll need a LOT of time and patience.

    I am a programmer and I have five years experience under my belt. I specialize in developing apps. They is no time limit for you to actually master any programming languages. The question is, are you determined to be a programmer, if your answer is yes, then you can start creating apps from day one.


    Programming is not rocket science.

    Assuming that you are a pretty fast learner, you may learn these languages in 30-40 days but it all depends on you.

    Some sites which you would like to peep.

    1)Codecademy
    2)w3schools
    3)dreamincode

    You may even want to watch videos from thenewboston.org , i learned a lot from bucky's videos when i started.

    Theappguru is right. First you must understand if you even like programming and by doing so you must learn the basics and then apply them in practice, hit a lot of bugs and issues and fix them. If you enjoy that, programming is for you.

    If you want to build sites you should know: html, css, php, js, jquery.

    If you want to learn to build apps you should know ruby, c# maybe and of course ios and or android as you'll be developing the apps mostly for those 2 os.

    If you wanna go advanced you should learn python, c++, java and so on. The more you specialize in a certain language and you get certified, the more you earn. But, choose a language that has a future.

    You're right. And later on you might wanna learn MySQL, Ajax and jQuery.

    At least 3 months imo, with a lot of practice.

    I don't want to cut down your dreams, but 1 month is fairly not enought.

    The main question is, how much experience do you have already. If you start at 0-5% you will be blown away. I think you want to learn this to sell some kickass Javascript HTML5 Websites, if so prepare yourself for at least 1 year of experience to get something cool, easily.
