Default CS student here looking for starter info

Yes, I'm lazy. Yes, I should read all the stickies of the gazillion and one forums that are available on this site. However, we all know that the meat of the information takes much too long to get to.

That said, let me make a short introduction along with what I hope you all can help me with. I'm a CS student and have SOME experience with programming, html, and css. I'm no journeyman by any stretch of the imagination and hardly a amateur. That said I am fairly capable at what I do and can learn quickly.

Some questions I have:

1.) Where would one go to start off?

1.a.) What is the route many go to when they have a technical background?

1.b.) Is website building a realistic revenue maker?

2.) What languages are used the most in this line of business?

3.) Any reading material that you guys are fond of (note: only free material is eligible in this case)

4.) Any courses that you recommend are greatly welcomed (note: again only free courses)

5.) Any other input is greatly welcomed


Thanks guys, if I sound demanding I'm sorry and that's not my intent; all posts are appreciated.

Start off by not being lazy. By not disrespecting the members of this forum by making your first post a bunch of questions that you could answer yourself if you were not self admittedly to lazy to do a little research.

Programming is not for lazy people. If you to lazy to learn then dont even bother.

I think it's safe to say that if you are punctilious about grammar, spelling, syntax, and punctuation you likely will write code more efficiently.

Given that you have been a Warrior Forum member for nearly a year, you should have some feel for the categories of information that would be germane to your interests.

Aside from this forum, there are numerous resources on the web to help you in your learning. Search for almost any topic, e.g., css, html, php, sql, followed by the words 'tutorial' or 'forum' and you will find what you need.

Sadly, I have spent little to no time lurking this site after making my account.

Actually yes it is. Grammar is has absolutely no bearing an a persons ability to create a algorithm, or brake down a complex problem into logical steps. Your a CS student and you dont know that?

Further I assume that you were not aware that not everyone speaks English as there first language. See there is this thing, called the world, and in some places in this thing called the world people do not speak English as there primary language. You see and then when these people immigrate to the USA they have to learn English.

Or your just trying to make a pathetic attempt to insult me since I scolded you for being lazy? I think much more likely the latter. The sad thing is your attempt to insult me shows a lack of intelligence and creativity. Insulting someone on the web for not speaking your language well. LOL thats just retarded.

Really here is some advise from a guy who makes his living as a full time developer. Yes you can make a very good living. No you cant be lazy. No grammar is NOT important. Yes you have to be aware of the fact that there is a world out there. Yes your going to have to be creative and have some intelligence. NO its probably not for you.

Best of luck.

Too many incorrect assumptions to account for. You've cemented my perception that you're all fluff and no substance. My guess is that you're just upset that you probably had to work your ass off in some piss-hole to make at best 50k per year within your mid 40's (at a place other than your home country), while I can go to school for a few years come out of it and make much more than that straight out (within my home country).

It's okay, some people are meant to be code monkeys and scavenge the remains of those better than them. Keep up your work though, you don't want to be serving my venti mocha in a few years at the local starbucks. As to your assumption of creativity and intelligence I seriously lol'd if you made those conclusions based off of my response to your pathetic attempt at making sentences in English; regardless I have substance such as my GPA and experience to prove you wrong in all categories.

Actually there is not a single assumption in the text you quoted. Every thing I said in the text you quoted was a statement of fact based off my experience. For example: Yes you can make a good living. Where exactly is the assumption there? Do you know what the word assumption means?

The only one who has made an assumption was you where you once again tried to insult me by guessing at my income and my age. Although I applaud your attempt to be creative when trying to insult me this time you have once again made yourself look foolish by doing siilly things like assuming my income and age Nice try though. Really you should quit while your ahead.

As for if Im 'all fluff' well you are free to think what you like. I really have no need to explain or qualify myself to some kid who is self proclaimed as being 'lazy'. Best of luck. You sure are going to need it.

You can play semantics all you want but you clearly said:

p.s. I single quote a summary so I don't have to multi-quote a whole post like below. However, because you cannot grasp this concept here we go:

If there's no assumptions within that post then they must've changed the definition of assumption recently; that or someone who doesn't know English as a first language doesn't understand what the word means, one or the other.

You really don't get it by now, do you? This whole thread was a shot at a quick, personalized road map for me to get my foot into the door in this field. It's merely a tool, and in the op I'd say whatever it is to accomplish that goal. Obviously I don't care as much about getting a personalized road map as I do making you look foolish, at this point. However, I have been researching on the side and am not reliant on this thread for information. Don't believe me? Hah, well if I had been reliant on this thread then I wouldn't be calling you out and voluntarily derailing the thread. Regardless you can say what you want about my tactic, but it makes the most sense to me. I'm double majoring and have a very busy schedule, any method to save me time is considered, even self-depreciation. That said I have things to do, and you have wasted enough of my time already.

Hi is suggest you to go with PHP learn php as there are many frameworks that are base don php and mostly many sites uses all those framework

as php is easy to learn and also available for free to learn on internet.

you can really make money if you learn php by just making small php scripts for the buyers.

Let me know if you want more guidance as i was also a CS student
