Bragging lesson about myself ;) J/K. you probably want to know who is the person that is gonna teach you. Here is a quick intro to my person.
Downloading and Installing Netbeans IDE that we will work with
In this lesson we gonna install Node.js which includes npm.
After it we will also install first package: grunt-cli
First configuration of Gruntfile.js. After this lesson you will know how to configure Gruntfile.js and package.json properly. You will know how to install your first task.
After this lesson you will know how to install your first task and run it using Grunt. Autoprefixer is a cool task which as name suggests is automatically adding vendor prefixes for CSS 3 properties which are not supported in some browsers.
After this lesson you will know how to apply tasks so they will run only if there is a change. Because of it for example if you do not add any new image the task won't compress anything. If you add 2 images, only those 2 images will be compressed. Because of it your tasks will run faster and you won't need to wait long.
I've shown you in this course the most useful plugins in my opinion. After this course you should go and look for the plugins you might like. As you can see there are thousands of entries on this website.
What language you should learn next?
It all depends on what you know right now.
By now you should know in order:
If you don't know them very well you should definetely go and learn them first.
So it would be good idea to go and learn PHP and MySQL which will allow you to create lots of great web applications.
It's good idea to also learn SASS which is gonna:
- reduce the time needed for creating and maintaing CSS code
- create fast clean responsive web design
- divide your project into logical modules without losing website loading speed
and many more.
