Web development in 2019 | Pluralsight

The first skills you’ll want to start learning if you’re getting into web development will be HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. These are part of what’s called front-end web development, and they are the foundational file formats of the web.

You can think of building a website like building a house. You need some structure, foundation, walls, ceilings, windows, and so on. That structure would be considered our HTML. Structure isn’t enough to live in a modern house today, you need paint, some sort of interior design, furniture and other necessities in order to have a comfortable place. Those more “stylistic” items would be considered the CSS. And lastly, if your house doesn’t run on proper plumbing and electricity, then things don’t really function well. This is where JavaScript comes in. JavaScript is the de facto programming language for the web. It is the language the provides the interactivity between the layout, styles and of course the users. Without it, users would only be presented with information, but they wouldn’t have any way to interact with that information.

Mastering these skills together will give you enough to “break into” the industry as there are plenty of jobs centered around just these three languages. With these skills, you’ll understand how to display text, images and other objects in a web browser, and you’ll be better able to execute solid web development down the road.

Some websites make people pay to get mugshots off the internet. NC House votes to change that.

State lawmakers want to crack down on websites that publish mugshots and make people pay to have their photos removed.

House Bill 778 stems from concerns that people who are arrested will have their mugshots posted online for years — even if the charge was dismissed, or they were found not guilty. That can make it hard to get a job or a lease if Google searches turn up a person’s mugshot.

Rep. Joe John, D-Wake, is the bill’s sponsor. The legislation passed the House unanimously.

“The individual cannot get the private company which has posted or published his or her booking photo or mug shot to remove that photo without the payment of an exorbitant fee — usually in amount of $3,000 or $4,000,” John said.

John’s bill would force the websites to remove the mugshot for free if the person pictured submits a written request. That request would need to show that the arrest didn’t result in a conviction.

Websites that ignore a request could be fined $100 per day, and they could face lawsuits for violating the law. Law enforcement agencies would be banned from directly providing mugshots to the websites, but they could still post the photos on their own agency websites.

The legislation now goes to the Senate. It was a rare victory for House Democrats who sponsored the bill — most bills passed during last week’s busy “crossover” deadline sessions were filed by Republicans.
