Web Development can be split into two categories—front-end and back-end. The front-end or client-side of an application is the code responsible for determining how the website will actually display the designs mocked up by a designer. The back-end or server-side of an application is responsible for managing data within the database and serving that data to the front-end to be displayed.
Most of basic HTML, CSS and some frameworks like Bootstrap along with a little bit of Java Script is quite enough to develop beautiful looking templates. But even these things need a bit of attention since the frontend area is very important aspect of a website. I won’t ask you to type down tons of HTML code, its waste of time but you need a bit of practice to master the basics. So start with any online course that teaches you the basic designing of a simple web page.
