Best resource to understand backend/frontend interaction, web/mobile architecture etc
I am trying to learn about how various "parts" of a website/app interact and receive some practical guidance on creating a dynamic website/app that work together. I am looking for books, free online courses, tutorials, and hands-on lessons (etc.) to help gain this knowledge.
Additionally, some info on best practices would help. For example, explanations and advice on using AJAX and REST principles.
I tried to list a bunch of questions that are somewhat related. I know answers to some of them, but there are a lot of questions that I don't even know to ask. Some up-to-date resources would be highly preferred. Resources that explain how things work are preferred over very advanced technical documents. I appreciate any support.
For databases, you need MySQL (PDO specifically) along with most typically PHP.
Not sure what you mean when you ask what if you want to build apps that use those databases.
Most well-known web hosts should be able to handle any language you mentioned (again, I don't know about Ruby so not sure) but email support if you want to know for sure. I've used Dreamhost and I know they handle html, css, js, jquery, php and mysql databases just fine.
Most of the rest of your questions are best answered by someone else. I'm pretty new to all of this but I've learned all that I mentioned and more in a year's time.
Start with codecademy to get your feet wet. Learn all the basics there and start building websites now. It's intimidating but I taught my 5 year old son how to make a website in about 10 minutes. Simply <html>My website!</html>. It's a bit more than that but that in and of itself would work.
Check out the page source of websites. It's fantastic learning information.
Download Sublime text editor, MAMP if you use a Mac or WinAMP if you use Windows.
That's about all I got in me; I may add more later. But the earlier you start building the better.
Hey, thanks a bunch for the reply.
I'm actually hoping for a full resource or 2 that addresses this stuff. Like I said, I actually know the answers to a lot of my questions, but there are very similar questions that I don't even know to ask, and a thorough explanation of an entire web technology ecosystem is probably not very practical for this forum. If anyone has read through a book or gone through a free lecture that addresses many/most of these topics, I would be really appreciative if they would share.
