 I'm starting school in a couple weeks for web development.

 What should I start teaching myself within these next few weeks to get a little head start?

 As a web developer what do you feel the most important tips or things to keep in mind are?

 Will I have much to do with graphics or design? (I've been learning inkscape, and enjoy it)

Just looking for any advice, tips, or thoughts  from web developers

What is the average day of work like for a developer?

Thanks

No day is like another, and that's what I love about it.

My advice is : Learn PHP, learn MySQL, learn Ruby on Rails, forget about PHP.
Keep practicing Photoshop.
Keep your mind open.

Oh, and don't be a web developer, be an app creator.

Photoshop, and javascript. Also I know my school started teaching us dreamweaver, you will probably want to ask your professor if you can use a different IDE, they are much better ones, I like coda for mac OSX.

I don't know what web development school you went to but Ruby on Rails is too new to be taught in schools yet just going to leave that here.

And then go back to PHP once your site gets hacked due to a Ruby on Rails vulnerability.
This.

Yes.  HTML is kind of mostly deprecated at this point.  You'll learn the remainder of it while learning PHP.

Instawallet and Bitcoin-Central remain unhacked and untrolled. Any further questions ? Yep, that's what I thought.

You can not possibly be serious.

Thanks for the advice. Going to start learning the basics of php today.

I'm sure once I start school I'll have a lot more questions....seems like there are a lot of people with a lot of different skills here.

Maybe I said it wrong.  I was thinking of styling tags and tables, which have been replaced with CSS and divs.

Django's fun, but as with Ruby on Rails, you probably won't be learning that in school. PHP is probably what you'll mostly be learning.

Yes you did Smiley

Absolutely.

OP, start with PHP, but don't stick with it, learn Rails (or Django) removing the little wheels from your bike is scary at first, but you'll never look back.

Oh, and don't touch ASP.Net with 10-foot long pole. Ever. No exceptions. You'll end up with a boring job.

PHP, Python, Ruby, HTML5, CSS, SASS&LESS, Javascript, SQL/MySQL. At the minimum you'll need PHP, HTML5, CSS, Javascript, MySQL - I use all these regularly to some extent or another.

If someone threatens you with PERL, run away.

Inkscape is cool, and if there are classes in Illustrator then yes to that too. If you can be a developer AND a designer you'll have it made, assuming you actually like doing it. If you find that you don't like doing it, find another line of work.

The microsoft tools have always been great for developers, but most of the interesting stuff is open source.

Disagree there. Many many flight and hotel reservation systems are built using ASP.net, definitely not an underpaid or boring job + its in HIGH demand at the moment Wink
I agree with Blazr here, there's probably high demand so if you want a boring job fixing bugs on hotel and flight reservation systems go for ASP.Net
