Everything?!

OK, here's my opinion, but I'm no expert...

You'll need to be able to do all sorts of different things, as you'll probably not get a job with an agency, if you haven't got a portfolio. You'll need to have a good grasp of pHp (obviously), Javascript (including Ajax techniques), CSS, XHTML/HTML/XML and MySQL. Some idea of Perl, Python and Ruby would be useful, but not essential. You'll also need to be able to produce your own graphics, unless you pay for them or find non-copyright/free to use examples. Some experience with frameworks and templates may help you: jQuery, Smarty, Joomla, Drupal, Codeigniter.

Those are the things I've taught myself over the last 5/6 years. Like you I didn't learn this stuff at University or with a web design company, although I've successfully produced a few sites for paying clients. Lot of work though.

thanks you for your openion , i will start learning those stuff
