Hi all,

 

I am looking for a bit of advice and possibly some guidance. I programmed in C++ for a good three years. I also used SFML and OpenGL for 1 of the 3 years.  I haven't programmed in it in about 6 months though because I have been so concentrated on trying to learn some web programming. Now what I did was I went on Code Academy, finished the Web fundamentals, Jquery, and Javascript courses. 

 

I am at a point where I feel I have a grasp on how to program for the web, but no clue really how develop for the web. I can open a text editor, include the needed documents, and a bow grow when clicked, but where do I learn how to make an actual good looking website? Code Academy taught me how to do some neat things with my code, but never how to make a nice, full fledged website.

 

So I am at the point where I want to try making a small 3D sandbox game and a nice website to encase it. I know this will require WebGL, server side programming, maybe a few helper libraries, and website designing knowledge. I was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction of where to learn those skills. 

 

TL;DR?

 

My Goal: 3D Web Sandbox Game

 

I have learned thoroughly:

C++

OpenGL

SFML

 

I have sort of learned:

HTML

CSS

Javascript

Jquery

 

I want to learn:

Node.js or PHP? (Some server side language)

General Web design (I kinda know CSS but that doesn't mean I know how to make stuff look nice)

WebGL

Three.js? (I have heard of this, not sure if I should learn it or WebGL, or both)

 

Any advice, links to great tutorials, or guidance on completing my goals would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance! smile.png
