You need to find out a good IDE and be master at least one IDE (Integrated Development Environment).
Web server compiles code that written in any languages such as PHP (the most widely used), Ruby on Rails, Java, C#, VB.net, NodeJS, Perl, C, C++, Go, Erlang, Python, Framework and Opensource, etc…
You need to know about the OOP (Ojbect Oriented Programming), Design Pattern, test-driven development (TDD), Agile, SCRUM, etc…
The databases for web applications with Relational database such as: MySQL, MS SQL Server, PostgreSQL, SQLite, Oracle, DB/2 and non-relational (NoSQL) database such as: MongoDB, CouchDB, Cassandra, Redis, Memcached…
If your website uses external services you need to know about APIs, REST, authentication, JSON, XML, RPC, SOAP, Curl… to get the data from external resources.
Your also need to care about the security, understand common vulnerabilities such as: SQL injection, XSS (Cross-site scripting), CSRF (cross-site request forgery), cross-domain request issues, session hijacking, spambots.
It seems there are a lot of things we need to know about web development, Web Technologies Blog will try best to make a interesting scenarios for you to step by step go further with Web developement and you will see web development is very interesting.
