    lawl, same.

    It's been 4-5 years since I even touched html so I've gotta refresh the memory. Since I don't have a job now :)bowdown:) I've got plenty of time to learn new codes plus it would be extremely beneficial.

    Okay, back to the big list.

    There are a few different tracks you can follow.

    WebMaster:
    If LAMP, you need to know:
    Mysql
    Apache (1 or 2)
    PHP, Perl, Python
    instead of PHP et all:
    Java, Struts, JSF, JSON or RUBY/RAILS

    If Windows:
    IIS 6+
    ASP.NET, including VB.NET and C#
    MSSQL 2000+
    VBScript

    for both: HTML, Javascript (at least on toolkit like DWT, Prototype, or jQuery)
    WSDL, SOAP, REST, any XML webservice really
    AJAX (if java, JSON)
    Basic knowledge of Photoshop/Illustrator

    if you want to be a web designer though, it changes.

    HTML, CSS, Javascript plus usually 2 libraries very well. Thorough knowledge of photoshop and illustrator. Less backend, as the webmaster will usually handle that.. you are just doing the front end.

    I've done that a few times but I could just hit the forward button and all the info would still be there.

    :dunno:

    I prefer to be a webamateur with idea skills and connections to people who can get it done. :o

    I wish I knew PHP, and other languages, but my brain won't learn any more.

    and the ability to plan ahead.


    The knowledge I had before I started my current position:
    PHP
    MySQL
    XHTML
    a little DHTML and Javascript
    Plus years of Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign/Quark,.. A little flash, dreamweaver, fireworks, and well damn near every graphic design type program out there.

    Since I started my 2 big hurdles has been learning Cold Fusion and Actionscript 2.0.
