The Complete Roadmap For Learning Front End Web Development

The Complete Roadmap For Learning Front End Web Development

Starting out a career in tech can be so confusing and frustrating, mostly at the point where you’re not sure of the language to learn, tools to use, or path to learning, this is exactly what so many self-taught developers do face at their early stage.

In this article, I will lead you to select a field in tech, and also give a step-by-step guide on learning frontend web development, so we begin by following the table of contents below:

Table of Contents

Understanding how the internet and websites works

Starting out with the Hyper Text Markup Language (HTML)

Cascading Style Sheet (CSS)


Web Security Knowledge

Version Control System

Package Manager

Testing & Code Analysis Tools

Keep learning


- Selecting a field

Yes, this part of this article is very important, though it’s not corresponding with the title, I’ll like to start from here because not everyone reading this article might have seen the right field to begin their tech career, and this is where the whole struggle might be coming from.

Now there are several tech fields out there, some of which are;

1. Web development
2. Block chain
3. Cyber security
4. Data Science
5. Cloud Computing
6. Artificial intelligence and machine learning
7. Software development and so much more.

All these are skills in high demand, but it’s foolish to learn all of these and knowing none, go for one which you are passionate about and focus on it till you are good enough.

1. Understanding how the internet and websites works

As a web developer, you need to understand or at least get the concept of how the internet and websites works, you will come across so many internet terms which you will work with as you progress, such terms like Internet Protocol address(IP), Uniform Resource Locator(URL), Domain Name Server (DNS) address, and so much more.

Before web pages are rendered to users, it follows some processes which a web developer should have knowledge of.

2. Starting out with the HyperText Markup Language (HTML)

HyperText Markup Language (HTML) is the language used to structure out contents in web browsers, every web developer must start with this language and you can grab the whole concept about HTML in less than a month.

3. Cascading Style Sheets

Cascading Style Sheets is a style sheet language used for describing the presentation of a document written in a markup language such as HTML. When HTML is the structure of websites, CSS is the beauty.

4. JavaScript

The programming language powering over 97% of websites, to make your website interactive, and not just a dumb page JavaScript plays a role here. Though there are other languages to replace JS in this part, it is advisable, to begin with, JavaScript as it is also the standard.

5. Web Security Knowledge

The Internet has good and bad parts, you need to prevent your websites from these sorts of threats, and that is why you must have a sound knowledge of web security as a web developer.

6. Version Control System

Understanding how to use version control systems will help you in tracking your codebase over time, moving to the previous version of the codebase without any issues, and also collaborating with other developers.

7. Package Manager

You should know the basics of the package manager and one of its tools, this helps in managing the dependencies (external code written by you or someone else) that your project needs to work correctly.

8. Testing & Code Analysis Tools

Testing is carried out to analyze your website and application to be sure it’s working as expected and also to check out bugs in your codebase.

9. Keep learning

To be sincere, in the world of programming learning never ends, you need to make personal research, solve problems, build kinds of stuff, and brush up your skills as you do these.
