Abondoning C language for WEB DEVELOPMENT

Currently, iam learning C programming language and im in the middle of my course. so far i have learned the CORE programming concepts like INPUT, OUTPUT, IF-ELSE statements, Data-types and variables, Functions, Arrays, Switch cases, Break&continue. BUT im kind of more into WEB development and want to learn it ASAP! … SO WOULD IT BE OKAY IF I JUMP INTO WEB DEVELOPMENT? OR do i need to learn a programming language first and then go for development? what do you people think?

YES,you can jump into the field of web development directly. Although learning a programming language is the foundation of web development, you’ve already covered some basic programming concepts, which will be helpful in learning web development.

Personal Advice:
1.Web development is an evolving field, with new technologies and tools emerging constantly. Continuous learning and staying updated with the latest developments are essential to becoming a successful web developer.
2.Never stop coding, the core of programming lies in data structures, logic, and algorithms. The programming language itself is relatively secondary and can be gradually mastered through proficiency. The various theoretical knowledge you learn will greatly aid your logical thinking in programming. While web development can be fulfilling, becoming a successful software engineer requires taking one step at a time.

Web development typically involves using one or more programming languages to build web pages and web applications. The key technologies in web development include HTML (Hypertext Markup Language), CSS (Cascading Style Sheets), and JavaScript. HTML is used to define the structure of web pages, CSS is used for styling and layout, and JavaScript is used for interactivity and dynamic functionality.

  1. Learn HTML and CSS: HTML and CSS form the foundation of web development. You can learn how to use HTML to create the structure of web pages and use CSS to add styles and layout. There are plenty of online tutorials and resources available for learning, such as W3Schools,FreeCodeCamp or others.
  2. Learn JavaScript: JavaScript is one of the core languages in web development. It enables you to add interactivity and dynamic functionality to web pages. You can start by learning the basic syntax of JavaScript, DOM (Document Object Model) manipulation, and event handling.
  3. Learn web frameworks and libraries: Once you grasp the basics of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, you can start learning popular web frameworks and libraries such as React, Angular, or Vue.js. These frameworks and libraries provide advanced development tools and features to help you build web applications more efficiently.
  4. Practice with projects: Apply your knowledge by working on practical projects. Start by building simple web pages or web applications and gradually take on more complex projects. Practice is key to learning, and through continuous practice, you’ll become more familiar with the web development workflow and technologies.

C language jobs are much lesser compared to Web Development jobs ( India, EU and US ), you can confirm this by doing job search in popular job site websites.

If you’ve decided to work as web developer then there is no need to learn C language.

If you know what you want to do that is usually the best path to follow. There will always be more to learn along the way but if you don’t enjoy what you’re doing it is easy to become complacent or lose interest all together. To be a web developer you don’t need too but if you make it to WASM C can be used there. Other languages like Rust or Go?? are gaining popularity in that space as well.
