If you want to learn web development here are 5 top tips to help you achieve your goals:
One of the biggest problems when trying to learn something new is trying to learn too much at once or just learning a bit of everything. I would recommend mastering one language at a time, if you want to get into web development you should start learning HTML & CSS. This alone will take you a while to master, when you can write perfect code fluently you know you are on your way to being a web development guru!
What makes a good web developer is the ability to troubleshoot errors. If you have made a mistake in your code, you need to know where the issue is and how to fix it. This can take some time to master and is usually comes down to practice and experience.
One of the best ways to learn anything is from learning from someone else. If you can sit down with an experienced web developer you should be able to fix up lots of tips, tricks and guidance. But be careful, web developers can develop shortcuts and bad practices so try and ensure you only take what you need and don't learn how to code badly!
The internet has pretty much everything you need freely available for you to start learning web development. Here are a few good places to start with:
A big mistake when trying to learn HTML & CSS is cheating, what I mean by this is using templates that have already been made that you simply make a few changes to. You will learn so much more if you try and do everything yourself. Even if you think it seems impossible, take your time, have patience and you will get there!
The best way to put what you have learnt is to create something! Why not make a personal website for yourself or offer out your services for free, by creating a real life project you will be faced with challenges that you can test your newly found skills!
I created my business around 6 months ago with very little capital but needed a website to help market. I was actually recommended Cloud Web Solutions and from day 1 I've had the most amazing experience. Not only was my website designed to a high standard, I pay a monthly direct debit that has helped in my first year. I also know after 2 years, I can rebrand and keep my costs. Jack has been fantastic, and would recommend all businesses to use this fantastic service. I will also add, all my queries and requests are always dealt with very quickly and extremely professionally.
I find Cloud Web Solutions very professional and committed to delivering a first rate service to their customers. Jack's attention to detail and understanding of what the client needs together with his patience with the fine tuning process is a refreshing change to my past experience with website developers. I would definitely recommend Cloud Web Solutions for a first class service whatever the size of your business.

Cloud provides a fast accurate and intelligent service both in building sites and maintaining them. It is competitive and effective. It is my first port of call for all my websites and I recommend it all the time to others, so I am glad I have a chance to put something on this site to encourage people to use it.
Cloud is Brilliant. I had been very badly let down by a company who promised the earth and it took them 12 weeks do tell me they couldn't come up with more than a holding page. I didn't know what I was doing!
