Getting set up for web development – part 1: choosing an editor

Foreword

Getting started with web development can seem overwhelming at first, as there are so many choices, for everything. This article is the first of a series that I plan to write on getting started with web development on Windows. The topics covered will be:

  1. Choosing an editor
  2. Tooling: node, bower, yeoman, etc.
  3. Useful libraries
  4. JavaScript supersets/TypeScript
  5. CSS preprocessors: LESS/SASS

Through these articles, I will try to share my experience with web development so far, show different options and explain the choices I made.

The big jump

So you decided to start web development? Great! You have an idea, and would like to see it become a reality. You know some basic html/css/javascript, but would like to start building a web site in a more structured manner.

Through this article I will try to give some paths to help you set up a convenient environment to start developing web sites.

The focus of this article is not to give training on the technologies. There are a lot of excellent resources on the web; if you wish to get a structured training, I strongly suggest that you visit Pluralsight.
