There's a lot of information out there! What are some resources for learning Web Development for an absolute beginner?
BEFORE WE BEGIN: Do you want to be a web developer, or do you just want to build a website/ web app for your idea? There are lots of ways to shortcut learning if its the latter.
Do you even need a website? Are a Facebook page, Instagram account, Whatsapp for Business, Messenger for Business enough?
Building an ecommerce store? Shopify
Ok, you think you want to be a web developer but you don't know if you'll be any good at it/ enjoy it.
Taking three years off to learn CS, while it might be better for your learning, might be a luxury you cannot afford either.
CS is important. But learning it the way CS students do might take too long, or might put you off. This is a suggested workaround.
I believe you should start with fun/ interactive projects. I've found that visual, immediate feedback is most important when learning something new.
