Golden Point: Web Development is easy, widely used, high market demand and fast result domain.

The most essential part of web development is the knowledge of the ability of the different programming languages. It’s very important to know the strength of different programming languages.

Web development consists of a combination of three types of languages: a markup language, server, and client-side scripting language. It is very much important to know at least the basics of these different type of languages.

Markup languages: Theses languages determines the code for formatting, both the layout and style within a text file. CSS files are added into the HTML file and communicate with the HTML elements to create an interactive website.

Client-side scripting: The code which runs in a web browser and shows what your customers or clients will see the website.


  • JavaScript
  • VBScript
  • HTML (Structure)
  • CSS (Designing)

Server-side scripting: The code which executes on a web server and sends a response to the client each request. Server-side scripting is different from client-side scripting.


  • PHP
  • Python
  • Ruby on Rails

C language offers low-level access to memory. Recommended use of this language is for writing system software and applications.


It hardly matters what language you learn. Just be the master of it –Abhijit Jadhav

Be careful while choosing the language, also think about the long term support of the language. As the bitter truth is that “You cannot be the master of each and every programming language”.
