The job of a web programmer can be quite lucrative, especially in this day and age where lots of business is being done online. Most of the major companies you can think of – Amazon, Best Buy, Radio Shack, Bi-Lo, Energy Savings, Wal-Mart, Home Depot – all have websites that were set up by web programmers like what you are hoping to become and there are always new businesses and old ones that are in dire need of a man who knows the language and culture of the web.
Surprisingly enough, becoming a web programmer isn’t as difficult as many people would have you believe. Most of the learning starts with the basics and that includes a little something called HTML. HTML or HyperText Markup Language is the basic fundamental by which all websites are built on. Many sites have expanded from this base to include other complex programming languages but if you want to become a programmer then there really isn’t any better place to start. HTML is even taught in many high school courses so you know it’s something that can be picked up by a budding programmer like yourself. There are plenty of free services and online courses you can take on this language too so take a look and have fun with it.
