Everything needs a base to start. For Web Development the basic step is to learn the Languages used for web development. We have already discussed what is coding and how to code. In the previous article, we discussed languages used for coding. In this article, we are going to head towards languages used for web development. So here is a list of coding languages used for web development.

Languages for web development:


PHP is a Hypertext Preprocessor server-side scripting language used for Web development. In PHP there are some components of C++. It was created in 1994 by Rasmus Lerdorf. It can be used for development CMS (content management system), it can be embedded in HTML, web templates, web frameworks and much more. PHP is processed by the interpreter as a module in web servers or Common Gateway Interface (CGI).


2. SQL

The SQL is a short form of Structured Query Language, which is used to manage data in the relational database management system (RDMS). SQL (Structured Query Language) is easy to learn.

It is also known as three core technology of world wide web. Mostly website is using JavaScript so JavaScript engines are now embedded in many host software.


5. Python

Python is no doubt the fastest growing programming language. It is used for multiple purposes whereas its main implementation is AI not only AI but also machine learning. But Python is also used for Web development. So if you really want to master web development, my advise for you is to learn python also.


Of course, we can not forget HTML/CSS when we talk about web development. These are the basic level languages you need to learn. Afterall we need to make the front end structure of our web pages. The HyperText Markup Language aka HTML is very easy to learn. It is used to make web pages and content to show up in the browsers. The CSS is for styling and arranging to the appearance of these web pages.

7. XML

The last name in my list is XML. It is used for server-side scripting. XML is also an important language for web development. It is used to make databases for our web server.
