Web development is a very broad area in which many branches. For instance, you can be a Fron-end developer who is making everything you see on the website and can interact with, Front-end developer is writing on HTML, CSS and sometimes JavaScript so in most ways, Front-end developers are not programmers at all because HTML and CSS aren’t the programming languages, you can google and see why. Also, you can become a back-end developer, in a nutshell, back-end developers are building everything behind the visual of the website so it will work well and so when you’ll tap on some button there will be an action. Back-end developers have to write a logic for each action on the website, so it’s real programming itself! And there are so many more developers like full-stack developers, which is a mix of both front and back-end development. And I think it’s one of the most popular positions in IT companies now!

If you want to become a web developer you should start learning HTML and CSS because they will be your base for everything else you’ll learn in the future. Also, it would be great if you could find a tutorial on how to create a website from scratch and then move to more difficult technologies.

Copywriting is a mix of art and science. It’s an art because it requires creativity, imagination, and the ability to tell a story. And it’s a science because it must be done in a way that is both effective and measurable. Copywriting is used in a variety of settings, including advertising, marketing, and public relations.
