Conclusion (v1)

That was quite a journey. Take a second and reflect on the fact that you’ve just learned the basics of at least three different languages and, if you had to, you could probably hack together a web page on your own already.

You should be fairly comfortable typing commands into your computer’s command line and you should understand what happens when you enter a web address into your browser and it returns a functioning page. You should be able to create a basic web page and make it do some basic things with JavaScript. You should understand the purpose of backend code and how frameworks make it easier to write clean and maintainable code. Finally, you should have a clear understanding of how all this fits together in your future as a builder of web applications.

With what you know already, you could start putting together some basic websites or strike out to increase your knowledge on your own. However, we’re here to help you get a lot further than that, to the point where you can confidently build a full-featured and scalable web application, whether on your own or working as a developer in a top-tier tech company.

You’ve come a long way up the learning curve but there is so much more cool stuff that you’ll learn to do!

Buckle up, because this is only the beginning. Now it’s time to delve deeper into the areas covered by Web Dev 101. There are some fantastic projects in the courses that follow which will challenge you to the limit, but you’ll come out the other side ready to go and make your mark in the programming world.
