How to become a Web developer?
If you are reading this blog you might want to become a web developer, or are interested in knowing what really it takes to become a web developer or you are just another enthusiastic person who likes to know stuff. If any of this is you, then get ready, it’s going to be fun. Becoming a web developer is a good strategy for people who are tech-savvy, but it will take some work and learning. If you are looking to build a career as a web developer, you will need to learn a set of skills involving programming languages, graphics editing, and marketing (yes marketing, will explain it soon).
So let’s dissect this.
There are hundreds of programming/scripting languages which will help you to become a web developer. People usually get into the trap of choosing the best language available in the market right now. But this is not how it should be done. Web Developer is divided into mainly two category Frontend Developer, Backend Developer, Full-Stack Developer
So what makes the front end of a website possible? Where is all that data stored? This is where the back end comes in. The back end of a website consists of a server, an application, and a database. A back-end developer builds and maintains the technology that powers those components which, together, enable the user-facing side of the website to even exist in the first place.

Being a web developer having a marketing knowledge is a perk, let me explain you why. A web developer will often hear this term SEO (Search Engine Optimization). It basically related to making your website in such a way that it is eye pleasing to Google and other such search engines. I won’t go into greater details in this but you should have some knowledge in digital marketing as well.
