Core Technologies for Web Development and Design: HTML5, jQuery, CSS3Today, I wish to write about core technologies of the web.
Nowadays I consider HTML5, jQuery and CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) as the building blocks of any successful and mobile-ready web site.
When you look at job listings of indeed.com and search for keywords like jQuery you will find that it is mentioned repeatedly in almost all of the job listings of PHP, ASP.NET, Java, SharePoint and Sitefinity. They keep mentioning it as their common denominator for all of their job requirements.
Similarly, if you search for JSP and other Java based web technologies you will find that jQuery is also required for those jobs.
Indeed.com Search for jQuery RequirementsLet's have a look at these search results of indeed.com to prove my point: Results of "jQuery" search at indeed.com:
|Senior Front End Developer||HTML5 and CSS3. More...|
|Web Developer||Visual Studio 2012, ASP.NET/C#, JQuery, LINQ, AJAX, SQL Server 2008. Develop WCF Web Services as needed....|
|Web Developer / Full Stack (PHP)||PHP (MVC, OOP), MYSQL and PostgreSQL. Hands on knowledge of JS, jQuery and any JS MVC framework (ie: Node.js, Backbone.js, AngularJS, MeteorJS, etc...|
If you are a beginner trying to learn how to create web pages and websites you have to schedule a learning program which includes jQuery.
Likewise, CSS (cascading style sheets) have become extremely important for creating a unified look, page layout and design between many web pages of a web site. CSS has a new version of CSS 3. It enables a graphical designer to easily determine the fonts, colors, columns, margins, spacing between pictures and text in one single style file which will control all web pages. Twitter Bootstrap is a very rich and popular CSS Framework which comes with predefined CSS templates.
On the other hand, HTML5 will enable the designer with many features like animation and new tags.
As a summary, HTML5, jQuery and CSS are core technologies which need to be mustered to feel comfortable in any job environment of any corporation trying to create web sites.
