Hello. Everyone. I would like to know what other programs are there that is helpful to gain skills to become web developer. I'm currently learning HTML5, CSS, Javascript, and JQuery. I'm pretty new to web design/development. I also heard PHP and MySQL is good program to learn. Is it good to have experience on graphic design programs such as Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator? I also want to know how many daily hours does the web developers invest to keep up with their skills. I know web design and web development is different thing. Is it good idea to start as web designer and then take steps into coding? Your answer would be very appreciated. Thank you.

BTW those two web pages that I created with PNG files that I created from adobe program and coding with HTML and CSS. Followed some other designer's styles. See what you think and I would love to have constructive feedback.
