    Which languages to learn to build simple cool website?

    Hi All,

    Could anyone advise what kind of programming languages I need to learn to build simple
    versions of these kind of sites?:

    http://www.secondstory.com/
    http://www.boldking.com/
    http://www.toybox.co.nz/
    http://combadi.com/
    http://designshopp.com/


    By a simple version I mean, to look as cool as these sites, however without any shops or special
    interactions with visitors. I only would like the page to have company description, image gallery and
    a possibility to submit contact details. However; it must look great!

    After I'll make the website ready I would like that the final user, who won't know how to program,
    be able to edit the content.

    I have recently started learning JavaScript, and then I plan to learn HTML5 and CSS.

    I've also heard about Ruby on Rails, Backbone.js, Underscore.js, jQuery, AJAX, Drupal and Wordpress.
    Do I need any of these for a simple site?

    In a future I'll be doing mobile version of the website, for Android and iOS. Should I now take it into
    consideration while choosing programming languages or is it a totally separate thing?

    Finally, does anyone know a good free tutorial / website which explains how to build modern websites
    with the current "hottest" tools / languages?.

    Thanks!

    i think you can use CMS like wordpress, joomla to do that. There are so many template free and premium and easy to customize too.

    Typically, a hybrid of HTML/CSS is used to make non-interactive web pages.

    To add interactivity, people use JavaScript.

    If you want people to submit contact details, you'll need PHP/MySQL.

    As for letting people edit the page, that is a whole separate project. I would suggest getting very comfortable with the languages above before attempting to implement something like that. Look on the stickies in the HTML/CSS, PHP, and JavaScript forums for resources and tutorials. You can use the links in my signature to go to the HTML/CSS sticky.

    1.) Learn HTML.
    this could probably take a while, but I think you'll find it's not hard. Get a feel for the basic elements of a web page and how they are created. HTML is all you need to know to make a basic website. I wouldn't suggest learning with a program that builds the webpages for you because it may limit you in the long run. All you need is a text editor like notepad. I use notepad++.
    2.) PHP is a great language for more complicated stuff, like databases.
