Hello gamedevs,

 

 

I've just finished a breaking point for me to start a new smaller project. I will be building a website/webpage. I have no idea where to start or what to learn but through will power and a lot of drawing and planning I will prevail. So how do I make websites/webpages?

There's so much information on the internet, I'm surprised you're actually asking the question.

 

Is there something in particular you're asking? Any particular goals you're trying to reach or accomplish?

Fire up your text editor, write some HTML, CSS and maybe JavaScript if you are into that sort of thing, and upload the whole collection to some HTTP-accessible location on the web. Or pay somebody like SquareSpace to do most of the heavy lifting for you.

 

Is there a specific technique or goal you want to accomplish here?

When I start out I want to learn the hottest most popular and used language and programs/software. I want to be as up to date as possible instead of studying something that is old and not used any more. I want to learn the core principals of web programming, designing that can be applied everywhere. I really want a good base starting point for all the research I'm going to do. So what would you recommend I study?

This is such an open question... Well, do you you want to start with learning to setup your own server? i.e. DigitalOcean VPS as a hosting service. Do you just want to make a website/webpage locally on your computer using XXAMP or MAMP depending on your OS. Do you want to do any server side programming i.e. having a contact form or some form of login authentication? This honestly could be talked about for a long time, if you were a little more specific we could better assist you.

I'm not so sure. This topic is completely new to me and I wanted a good starting point to jump off from but that doesn't seem possible now.

 

 

I want to make a webpage, it need to be accessible by others, I don't think I want my device to be the server, The webpage only needs to display graphics and nothing more. I think I need html5. How's this?

I only want to make a page with graphics. I'll try to expand on my own after that.

Then web programming is exactly the field for you - the hottest, most popular software changes every month! :D

 

In all seriousness, web development is a mess, and you need to be doing it almost full-time if you want to stay current with the latest trends. I'd advise you to consider just how important this is to you.

There are free blog servers - and you ought to be able to post graphics in a blog. Just search some and
try some. If you want to create your own website from scratch, then you need to get a webhost. Just google
the term. If you want to make your site in html5, then google how to use html5.

Here's what you need to know. HTML5, CSS3, Javascript (ES5), and JQuery.

 

Web development technologies change so often that by the time you learn 1, it's already obsolete. But if you want something popular to learn which will get you a job, learn AngularJS 2.0.

 

Read a book called Eloquent Javascript to learn Javascript. It's free and it's on the web.

You want to put pictures on your page or you want video game (think Game Boy) like graphics on your page?
