If you're like most people, chances are you're taking advantage of less than one percent of what your phone or laptop can do. People don't know just how much computers can do, or think they won't know how to harness computers' power. With a few hundred dollars plus Wi-Fi, you have everything you need to begin your path toward sucess.

JavaScript is another essential component of many modern websites. It's not required, like CSS, but it sure is nice.

Tip 3:

Learn these:

As in any industry, there are certain tools you’ll need to get comfortable with for a successful tech career. Here are the most common tools you’ll want to learn, though different companies might use additional tools or alternatives to the ones mentioned below.

Git: Git is a version control software that developers use for keeping track of code history and changes. Git also makes it possible for multiple developers to work on the same code without having to worry about overwriting each other's work.

Version control software makes it easier to see how code has changed and evolved over time, and also makes it possible to rollback to earlier versions in the event that a new version of the code creates problems or bugs.

Text Editor: Professional web developers generally use text editors specifically designed for coding to write and edit the code they create.

Tip 3 Cont:

Graphics Software: If you're interested in design, you'll need to learn to rock a graphics program to create all of those visuals that you see online.
The two most popular ones in the world of web design are Sketch and Photoshop (there are others, but these are the two you're most likely to encounter).

Prototyping and Mockup Tools: Creating wireframes, prototypes, and mockups is a key part of designing and developing any website or app.
Wireframes are essentially a sketch of the layout a site will have (with little or no indication of how the interactive parts work).

Carrier Options Tip 1

There are two main options for specializing in tech that we'll talk about here: design or development. Within each of those are additional specialties that can mean more fulfilling (and higher paid) career paths. If you can't decide between them, it's totally fine to learn both.

DEVELOPMENT VS. DESIGN
Okay, so you're aware that, at the very least, you must choose between web design and web development. But how do you go about doing that? And then, how do you decide what kind of designer or developer you want to be? Spend some time analyzing yourself to determine whether design or development is right for you.

But I think we must have to give focus to learn one thing first instead of learning both at the same time.
