View Full Version : Experienced system programmer wants to move to web development
I am an experienced system and embedded developer (Linux, VxWorks, Windows), and also used to work on proprietary widgets for Windows UI using MFC many years ago. I am looking to moving into Web Development, and would like to invite your opinions on how to start. I have in-depth knowledge of C++, Python, Perl, and Java.
Any suggestions will be highly appreciated.

I would start by looking into HTML and CSS. The are just the basic markup languages for the web. Once you have conquered those, I would move on to a server side scripting language such as PHP or ASP. As a programmer you will pick up on the logic naturally but you will need to learn the syntax. You might find it worth your while to learn MySQL, Postgresql or MsSQL. These are web databases and will allow you to create really cool web applications.
- So just to recap -
You need to learn:
PHP or ASP
MySQL, Postgresql or MsSQL
