    I have a knowledge of HTML, CSS, PHP and Jquery. I am actually in a tragedy and I am not sure about how to proceed further. Please help me out in expanding my knowledge.

    When I first learned web languages, I used www.codeacademy.com as they have some great ways to teach you web languages. All of the activities and learning are interactive and helped me a great deal to get started.

    Not an expert, and I'm sure there's people here more competent than me, but I might as well drop my two cents.
    I think you should start easy by focusing on front-end development, which basically focuses on web design and anything that involves what you see on a website. HTML, CSS and JS (even though I'd recommend some easier to learn libraries like jQuery, much slimmer sintax) are all you need for that, leave PHP, MySQL and all that for later.
    Codecademy is a good starting point, but I don't like the amount of hand-holding there is. Be sure to practice on your own. Check out the structure of simple pages by looking at their source code, and look online what every attribute does and how it works. Hands-on experience is incredibly valuable.

    I agree. Many people keep on saying learn C and C++. In reality real jobs are based on PHP, Javascript C# and Java. So I don't see much point there. Also the amount of need for learning CSS and HTML is growing. And it;d not be a good idea to waste time on learning C++ or so. I do think that some good youtube channels can make anyone learn a lot of those skills for free.

    Yeah, I agree with you overcast that for web development it is quite necessary to have a knowledge of HTML and CSS. And yes, there are plenty of YouTube channels which are willing to teach it for free.

    So how's your progress going so far? Are you using codecademy or any other specific resource. Feel free to either create thread or send me PM in case if you need help. I can't solve all the problem. But I can surely say that I can give some pointers if you want. All the best to your learning journey.
