Web Dev = Web Development = Frontend Development
🌐 What is web development?
It is how the internet works. You build websites, host them, pull data from them, and code how people will interact with them.
👩💻 Fundamental Programming Languages
- HTML = Structure of a web page
- CSS = Design of a web page
- React = Framework for organizing code
🔥 Side Note: You can make websites using other languages but these are industry standard
🧠 Why Learn Web Dev?
I use pieces of web development as a data science manager every day. Specifically, APIs (pulling data from web sources) and general knowledge of how the internet is programmed. I strongly believe every developer (even backend developers) should at least touch some web development in their lifetime.
💸 Paid Class
I took every class offered on SheCodes which teaches frontend development courses specifically to women. I paid full price for all (4) classes but now I have an affiliate link for 20-30% off (they have a summer sale going on right now!).
✍ Free Class
There are some good free classes out there. I tend to stay away from free classes because it tends to be less valuable. BUT I have heard great things about FreeCodeCamp if you want something for free.
