1. Learn how the internet works

This is a must for any web developer. Don't spend more than one day on this but make sure you understand how it works

2. Learn HTML

HTML is the markup language of the web. You can't build websites without it

Make sure that you learn and understand this but don't spend more than 1-2 weeks on it

3. Learn CSS

With CSS you style your website and make them look better

Don't try to learn everything about CSS, learn the fundamentals, and then move to the next step

4. Learn JavaScript

With JavaScript, you can make your website dynamic (show/import/save data for example)

If this is the first programming language you learn make sure that you take your time

5. Learn a JS Framework

These make JavaScript easier and faster

Choose any of these and don't overthink the process

7. Learn Git and GitHub

Git is a version control system that lets you manage and keep track of your source code history

GitHub is a cloud-based hosting service that lets you manage Git repositories

8. Learn NPM

npm is the package manager for the Node JavaScript platform

It puts modules in place so that node can find them, and manages dependency conflicts intelligently

9. Learn a backend technology

These are languages that let you server-side applications

If you already know JavaScript, I recommend learning Node.js but PHP and Python are solid options too

10. Learn Database

A database is a collection of information that is organized so that it can be easily accessed, managed, and updated

You'll need one when you'll build a website that stores data somewhere

Resources:

SQL - youtu.be/HXV3zeQKqGY

11. Keep learning

Being a developer is a live long learning journey.

It might look hard at first to learn all these things but take one step at a time.

You can learn all of these in 6 to 12 months if you are effective and consistent.
