What do I need to be a Web Developer?
Posted on November 8, 2017  |  Comments I was asked recently asked by a college student what he needs to be a "Web Developer." If I were to sum it into one blog entry, it would be a mix of the tools I use, best-practices and the coding languages that I know. It's never to late to learn how to code and learn new tools. Once you have an idea on the basics - it's never too far to learn another. Every single thing online has documentation, youtube videos, and wikis readily available. There are a lot of tools out there and a lot of developers willing to share their two cents on forums and social media.
