Step 1: Learn the basics of
web development

=>

  • every modern website that you visit is based on HTML, CSS &
    JavaScript

    in the frontend (the part of the website you download on your device when visiting a website), and a lot of different programming languages which you can choose from (for example
    Python

    or
    JavaScript

    ) in the backend (the server where the website & database is hosted)
  • Don't know yet how to write code on your laptop? Here are 3 suggestions, all free:
    • The quickest way (online): Just visit
      https://glitch.com/edit/#!/remix/hello-webpage

      and start coding
    • Offline: download & install
      Visual Studio Code

      (recommended for more serious / bigger projects, with a lot of helpful plugins that save a ton of time), or
      https://atom.io/packages/atom-ide-ui

  • Learning resources for you, try out and see what you prefer:
    • Amazon book (paid):

      )
    • Build a quiz game
    • Analyze data from APIs of other websites (YouTube, Meetup, Google Maps, Twitter, Buffer, Google Vision
      AI

      , etc.)
