Hey man, there is 2 sides to web development - Front End & Back End (which is explained in the Trailer video for the Front End Web Development track). Most people choose one side to focus on as theres alot to learn and usually your role at a company will be based around one or the other.
For Front End I would do both of these as the Web Design course teaches you about designing layouts & logos aswell as coding.
- Web Design<br />
- Front End Web Development
For Back End you can choose from these languages:
- PHP<br />
- Ruby<br />
- Python<br />
- Rails<br />
I'm a front end dev so maybe a back end dev can advise on which tracks would be best for learning back end.
In today's tech world it's really a necessity to know both front-end and back-end, but be more fluent in one. I would say your should learn ruby as its more common and then learn some python because it's very similar to ruby.
After I had worked my way into Ruby on Rails track, I stumbled upon this video: https://www.youtube.com/user/learncodeacademy. It put things into perspective and gave me a better understanding of what I need to do and how to go about it. Hope this helps.
