How can I get started with web development?

timer Asked: Oct 21st, 2012

Question Description

I’m stuck on a Programming question and need an explanation.


I'm looking to get started with some web development stuff, but I really don't have any clue where to start. I see so many different things out there but with all the jargon and different technologies, trying to sort through it all has bit overwhelming. Let's say I wanted to develop something along the lines of urban dictionary, which technologies would I need to learn?

Oh yeah, the only language I'm somewhat familiar with that I see mentioned with web stuff is Ruby. I know what HTML is and I dabbled with MySQL for a project that never came to fruition.
