This article constitutes section 2, part A, an overview of the CIW Website design manager course briefly covers: Web Languages

This is where we start to get serious! Again I have tinkered with JavaScript before, so this wasn’t a complete surprise but I certainly learned a lot from this section. Perl was completely new to me and, I must confess, I struggled with the data type declarations and usage. In both parts the end of section tutor marked assignments (TMAs) were stinkers. They each took me over two weeks to complete.

CIW Course Web Languages Overview

Other CIW students I have talked with have found this section to be particularly challenging. I would suggest taking your time as you work through the notes, and type up ALL the code samples and try them out.

You will learn more from your mistakes in typing out the samples than from anything else. With both languages, syntax is very important and the slightest error in the code will prevent correct execution. Debugging you code is the best learning tool!

I found the Perl section considerably longer and much more detailed than any of the previous sections. Work through it carefully and, quite possibly, by a book on the subject if you are serious about learning the language.

While I had no great desire to learn the Perl language. I have found it useful as the syntax has a lot in common with PHP. A language I was very keen to become familiar with. I may even include a little about it when I become a more adept with it.

Only an introduction

By nature of this post being an overview of the Web Languages section of the CIW Course, it is a very brief post. It would be unrealistic to delve into the individual languages at this stage. Each language will be covered in later posts.

I should have researched the topic at the time. But, I was studying the CIW Course not thinking about future blogging. So, it is only now that I find the Top Programming Languages used in Web Development.
