Have you always had an interest in web development but don't really know where to start? Have you perhaps begun to learn without any further success? If the answer is Yes to any of the questions, it may be because you've approached it in a bad way. We share 3 tips for learning web development.
Define the goal
Stephen R. Covey wrote in his book 7 Habits of Highly Effective People:Begin with the end in mind. So it seems natural that our first tip is that you should clarify for yourself why you want to become a web developer. We recommend that your primary goal should not be money - let the financial factor be a secondary goal and think about what you want to learn and what you want to achieve with your career as a web developer.
Only learn what you need
Some people think that they need to learn a lot of techniques to become a web developer. The biggest trap is that they start by creating a list of various popular techniques that they think they need. The downside is that the list can quickly turn into a bottleneck and you will feel frustrated that you are not learning fast enough. A strong recommendation is that you instead choose an end product that you want to develop and only learn the techniques needed to develop that particular product.
To begin your journey as a web developer, it is extremely important that you do not overthink it. Your first project does not have to be to develop the next YouTube, Facebook or Google. Define your goal, choose an end product and learn what you need to develop your product.
