Stages to follow:

Stage 1 – HTML: HTML, you have heard about it lots of times before. If I am not wrong HTML is the language you have learned in your school life. Yes, it’s actually the same as what you have learned a long time ago but as long as time changes technologies are changes. Nowadays as you have grown up, even HTML has been grown up too, now there is called HTML5 which comes in existence. What? Worried about what is it? Don’t be. I just said that as we have grown up HTML has grown up too but the difference between us and HTML is, it changed its name to HTML5. In HTML5, you can not just prepare the basic structure of the web page but we have many more things that we can do. We can store and process values on variables on-page itself without any databases like we do in any programming languages (Temporary variables), we can develop games on it. No need for flash to play animations on it. Even we can develop a fully functional blog with HTML4 itself without any help to server-side scripting languages.

Stage 2 – CSS: We live in such a society where everybody wants to look pretty, beautiful, to achieve this everyone does makeup. Similarly, CSS does for HTML. CSS creates the beauty on HTML pages. With the help of CSS, you can make your web page colorful and smooth. You can even create animations using CSS. You can add transitions, changing the scrolling events of your pages, mouse click events and many more. But as HTML changes to HTML5, CSS also has been changed to CSS3.

Now, it’s turn to create some useful tasks that your web page elements will do when some activities performed on your web pages like button click events, mouse over any text, playing and pausing some animations on page, etc. With the help of JAVASCRIPT, you can do that easily. One of the best scripting languages used to make a web page more smooth, flexible and platform-independent is javascript. It’s not that easy to learn but whatever you learned at an easy level, that will be enough to do your all tasks.

Stage 5 – PHP: As up to now you have learned about how your web page will look like, how the interface of your web page users will face. How it reacts based upon the user’s activity but only at the client machine. But nowadays we have the works of a lot perform on the back end of our web page called server. So to code on server-side we need server-side scripting language which one is PHP (Hypertext Preprocessor). We have also many more other server-side scripting languages are there like, JSP etc but PHP is one of the easiest and most used server-side scripting languages.

So don’t worry about it. We have a lot of tools available in the IT market which helps you to run PHP codes on your local machine. Following tools can be used to run PHP codes on local machine :
