Discussion on: I want to learn about web-technologies as a beginner to the web development scene

HTML, CSS, and JavaScript basics are an excellent starting point to understanding the "front end" side of the web. I personally wouldn't recommend trying to learn a front end framework like React or Angular until you have a pretty good grasp on the basics of vanilla web development. If you want to learn about the back end, my personal choice is Spring Boot, which is a Java framework for building RESTful apis. However, Django would also be an excellent framework to learn, and might work better for you, since you're already familiar with Python. I would recommend focusing on either front or back end and getting familiar with that one domain before diving too far into the other. The web dev world is so enormous that it can be easy to get overwhelmed trying to learn a lot of different things at once. Good luck!
