KYKYLLIKA I’d suggest Visual Studio Code because it will allow you to tap into lots of community-accumulated knowledge in general and apply VS Code stuff from other platforms.

Step 1: https://code.visualstudio.com/docs/setup/machttps://code.visualstudio.com/docs/setup/mac

Step 2: Plugins and modules https://code.visualstudio.com/docs/setup/additional-components, I reccommend ESLint, Beautify, Typescript and Typings

Step 3: Make your first project https://code.visualstudio.com/Docs/languages/typescript

Mrzev Yeah, all that stuff is non compiled and cross platform. If you wana learn web dev, you can stick with Javascript and CSS and you dont need anything but a web browser to view them.

Do you think osx would be a good OS to learn PHP and other languages on? I've been doing a little bit of codecademy and TheNewBoston's youtube channel and have been wanting to get a book.

As mentioned already, OS wont make any difference in learning web development. If you are familiar with Windows or Linux, stick with it. What is important is learning how different browsers might render a page differently, other than that no big difference.

From my experience, I used Windows and Linux while learning HTML, PHP, MySQL, Javascript and other things related to web development.
You can download WAMP server if you are running Windows, or set up LAMP stack if you are on Linux. It looks like there is also MAMP server for Mac users.

It really comes down to doing with whatever floats your boat.

DuckieHo Web development? Learn Javascript and associate frameworks.

A quality JS developer (Angular, Bootstrap, React, JQuery, Node.JS, etc) with a few years of experience can easily make $100K+ around me.

What machine you use doesn't matter... just get a good monitor and keyboard. MBA neither has a large monitor nor a great keyboard.

It's web development... what OS your machine runs doesn't matter that much.

haha216 I don't really think it matters which platform you code on, especially simple web development. I suggest checking out Brackets, if you haven't already discovered it.

Higgins909 Right now I'm trying to learn some PHP, then back to html, CSS... maybe some others. But my main goal is to get into web dev, by being self taught, only on a hobby level for now.

Is a mac... more specifically a macbook air, a good computer for web developing? I'm thinking that I can get a used one for $400 off ebay, I found this one: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Apple-Macbook-Air-11-6-1-3-GHz-Core-i5-128-GB-SSD-4GB-RAM-Yosemite-MD711LL-A-/152233530373?hash=item2371d35405:g:Tw8AAOSwxg5X0HBg
Maybe have to replace the battery, maybe update to latest osx if I have to. But if the battery life is good enough and light enough to carry around, that's what I'm looking for. (Take it to work, to learn on, on breaks for now)
