Web Design Must-Haves Today
Going back to school and need some advice

 4:45 am on Jun 25, 2008 (gmt 0)

Hi, gang!

It looks like I'm on my way back to school, full-time, for retraining.

I've been in web design for 10 years, but pretty much got left behind in the technology in the last 8 yrs.

If you were going to school to learn must-know web stuff, what would you look into learning? What are the employers wanting in a web designer?

All of the above? Something else?

Please, let me know. This will help a lot in my choice of classes.

CSS, PHP, and SQL are very useful.

If you are training to be a web designer then CSS, HTML and all the associated photography / design packages would be good.

If you wanna be a super cool developer (much more kudos) then learn:

Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP....

Many professional jobs available today require ASP.NET. Don't bother with ASP, but try to learn C# and get used to the .NET framework.

Outside of that, XML isn't really something you need to spend much time learning--I'd definitely learn CSS, PHP, and C# + ASP.NET though. The tools to develop in all these languages are free, and they can all be learned quickly and easily if you're familiar with C-style syntax.
