need guidance about front end web development

+1 Parul Bhagat · December 7, 2015
I have learned XHTML , CSS  and Javascript and I already know C++ . What should I do to get an experience in front end web development so that I can get good jobs (since they look for candidates who have good experience)?

You do know that "Front End Development" is a fancy way of saying you're a website designer...

I don't think C++ is need for Web Development.

I suggest you learn HTML5, only because everyone's going into it and it's the latest web development to learn; and I also suggest CSS3, it's optional but you could use more CSS3 instead of JS as some sites use JS way to much when CSS3 already provides most functionality.

Other than those then you're good enough for a front end developer.

Completely disagree with the 'Web Designer'. You're a Web Designer if you draw wireframes and little arrows that say what functionality is needed. That wireframe is then given to a Web Developer who writes the code. A small portion of a Front End Developers work is to make the site visually appealing, a lot of stuff goes on in the background that a front end developer is responsible for e.g. I'm a front end Web Developer but I write applications in C#, Java etc

Website Designer always seems a bit demeaning to me.

But essentially I agree with the rest, become good at HTML and CSS, learn JS and jQuery as you go and C# is a useful one to learn. You'll rarely use C++ unless you want to build the next Amazon :-)

By the way Ray LeDuc are there any sites for learning android app development from the start like the one you told (http://www.freecodecamp.com/) for front end development ?

You should learn HTML5 and CSS3

Also you should build a portfolio for yourself so you get more experience in web development.

The best way to show people how good you are is through your own website. That is what people will judge you on I believe
