    Hello experts and experienced members,

    I am a newbie Web Designer, and I've been practicing a lot.

    Now, I've decided to dive into Web Development. But I don't know yet any programming language for Web Development.

    So I need your tips and advise on what's the right for me to learn FIRST.

    PHP, RUBY or PHYTON?

    No... Several. If you think HTML is the only web DEVELOPMENT language, well then your terminology is off. If you want to leave off JavaScript and the libraries that go with it (which is all part of web development but I'll play along). I use Sass, Compass and Ruby. Just saying.

    Those aren't languages, they're preprocessors for CSS.

    Sorry.. by definition:
    Sass is a Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) metalanguage. It is a scripting language that is interpreted into CSS.
    And okay.. by definition compass is a framework/library for use with sass , but thats almost like calling jquery not a language, which while its not, it still kind of is.

    This site has become uber nit-picky recently.

    ASP.Net - Microsoft has Visual Web Developer express as a free tool to get started with.

    Here's what you should look at in my opinion...

    Html
    Css
    Javascript
    Jquery
    Asp.Net (vb.net or C#.net)
    Mssql or Mysql

    The first four will allow you to develop some pretty slick websites. The last two will enable you to turn those websites into dynamic applications that can perform server-side tasks such as saving data (think user accounts etc) etc etc.

    And can you develop web documents that user agents can "read" without using any variant of SGML whatsoever??
