    You'll have to be more specific. Do you want to work for someone? Do you want to freelance? How much time do you want to spend? What is you current experience level?

    No, I just want to work for myself. I want to be a proffessional web developer.

    I don't have any experience in developing. I just can design by photoshop.

    The below thread I have posted previously which shows a good order you can use to learn how to create websites by following each step (and the languages stated).

    Hope this information is useful.

    reading is no good without doing, building a web site is like seo the more you do it the better you become, if you know how to make web2.0 buttons, make images with transparent backgrounds then you are part way there

    next play with css on a number of wp themes to understand how it is used to manipulate the appearance

    next learn html and seo simultaneously so that static pages are already optimised for seo

    rinse and repeat process... until you become familiar with the whole process

    You so canít have said that! Web 2.0 styled websites are so tacky they look like clones of each other, drop the shiny act and produce something original

    First and foremost, read Jakob Nielsen's “Designing Web Usability: The Practice of Simplicity”.

    Then learn XHTML and CSS, you can do that at HtmlDog (google it).

    Bookmark WebDesignFromScratch (and study all there is in that site) and start researching and bookmarking others alike.

    Once you reached that point, move on to stuff like JQuery, Javascript itself, PHP, MySQL...

    You should be up and running in just a few months! Good Luck!

    I'm just learning HTML and CSS at the moment too, so this thread was of interest to me. HtmlDog seems quite good so far, nice bitesize chunks that are simply explained and that I can fit easily into my day. Thank you Thiago_CP!
