For beginners of Web development,my biggest advice is to understand HTML and once you think you're done with html basics,move on to other wings of CSS,PHP etc.Here I would like to share my experiences with web development and the journey which I think will help any beginner in Web development to land successfully int their projects.
Two years before, I was wondering how are the web applications been build and maintained ! Then I began to start from its basic element -HTML. Of course to get a good grip on any web designed application , you need to be good at HTML.So I understood the basics tag elements, implementation of forms, styling and table features in HTML. The base at HTML will certainly will contribute towards your progress in CSS. A sound knowledge in CSS is helpful in designing your own outline in web designing. The concepts of div and customizing the elements, will lead to custom outline design of web page.
Now to go a step ahead is the wonderful language of PHP. Php acts as a link between your application and and data storage.MySql comes handy once you look for a back end support. Acting as a base, mysql extends the feature to create tables,alter it,update it and many more features which helps in data storage. The basic things to learn in mysql are to design- how to create tables,adding constraints,insert into table, updating tables, retrieving the contents from table based on view and constraints.
Now php supports html inside it .Its really easy to embed html inside a php page.Just put ur each lines of html into a echo "" statement.
Below is a basic php code of how to connect to sql and retrieve contents from it , verify and step ahead.The code basically connects with mysql, retrieves data and thus takes action on basis of it.
$conn=mysql_connect("localhost","root","pwd");//enter password of mysql instead of pwd
die('COUDNOT CONNECT SUCCESSFULLY:'.mysql_error());
$query="SELECT * FROM ACCOUNT WHERE USER='abc' AND PASS='passed' ";
$num1=mysql_num_rows($res1);//retrieves number of available tuples corresponding to query
if($num1 != null)
Some of the common workable web application projects include student-management system,hospital management system, event managements systems etc.
