    Hi

    I am going to join FY engineering from this year. I have already taken an admission in a c language course. I want to know apart from c, which webpage designing language should I learn? html, jawascript or php or is there any one better than these? Please help me. I have some knowledge in C but nothing in these 3.

    LAMP => Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP. This is the best combo right now.

    From your post it sounds you still don't know html and javascript. You should learn those first if you haven't done so still cos they will form the basics. Later you can move on to learn CSS and PHP.

    So I should have a minimal knowledge of html or javascript to learn php? Then it's better to master it first. What do you think?

    IMO sit and master HTML and JavaScript first. They are easy languages to learn. So, then when you go with php you will be confident and comfortable. HTML still forms the base of www, so it cannot be ignored IMO.

    @ Bukaida

    Thank you for the spoken english advise. My father has been telling me the same thing. I think I will proceed with C then html (in one day, well if pathiks can pick it up in one day why can't I?) and then javascript and php.

    Thanks guys.

    That was the first time I heard that. I hope it isn't true. I hate hindi! English rules all the way!

    I hope I'm not starting language wars.

    To the question, i think you should learn c and then c++. so wherever you work in the IT industry it will be easy for you. c++ is easy if you know c. Also learn HTML and Javascript.
