    That's a pretty big ask as there's SO many subjects important to the process....

    You have the languages (like HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Server-side scripting (like PHP, ASP, Ruby, Python or one of the other hundreds of languages not mentioned there like SVG, XML, mySQL - etc)), you have the theoretical or applied skills (like accessibility, usability, SEO, social networking, user-experience design, etc) and you have the related subjects (of importance) which play parts (like Writing, Graphic Design, Multimedia Creation, Business, Psychology, Sociology, Computer Science, Languages, Law, Marketing, etc). I've broken them down as such because it's easier to differentiate them like that.

    It depends entirely onto what KIND of designer or developer you want to be, what specialist subject you want to make your niche (or become an expert in) and what type of sites you want to build. Building website's isn't some straight forward "do this then this" style of education, there's probably hundreds of job roles in the industry. There's also the issue of whether to generalise and learn a little about a lot, or specialise and know a lot about a little.
