[ I'm not quite sure if I chose the proper section of forum however I will take this risk ;) ]
Hello, I'm young student from eastern Europe. I've been trying to achieve some skills in webmastering (At last I've got some free time to keep focus on that :) )
, however I'm still beginner and I've got several question to more advanced and experienced webmasters.
First of all - which languages are the most useful and necessary? Well, my aim is to build simple but up-to-date and professional websites.
I'm trying to master PHP, MySQL and Java Script. I have heard that Java Script is out-of-date, but I find it very useful to basic visual effects - is that a right approach?
Secondly - browsers. I'm using the lates Firefox. How should I check other browser? Just install all of them, or would you recommend me some other tool?
What about smartphones, tablets, and all portable devices? Where can I read something about preparing websites for various kinds of devices?
And the last thing. What about html5? Could you recommend me some books or articles to get some informations about this new standard?
I'll be glad for any advices and clues ;)
