Jun 05, 2014 incision on Secrets you should have learned before your first programming job
Interestingly, many if not most of these items are covered in CS169.1x [1] over on edX.

Also, my recent 100-level courses at a continuing education arm of a public university covered 1, 6, 7, 8 and touched on 2 and 10.

In my experience, the most consistent omission is #2 'How To Write'. It's so rare that my own limited, but apparently good enough, ability has been a significant bonus throughout my career.


Mar 24, 2014 facorreia on Which language should I learn?
Any of several languages would fit that bill, including PHP, Ruby, Python, Java, JavaScript, C# and others. As important as choosing a language is selecting a web framework and also learning how to build a web application.

For a novice, I would recommend the free "Engineering Software as a Service" course[1], which uses the Ruby language and the Rails framework to teach the fundamentals of web development.
