Advice for gaming website
Hello Dev Shed!
I'm new around here and go by Fabius, and I would appreciate your help! Let me get straight to it. Since this is gaming specific but related to general web development, I decided to post it here, as I couldn't find another forum that seems to meet my requirements, but if somebody thinks I'm in the wrong place let me know.
I'm a novice java developer with aspirations of escaping my monotonous office space like job and instead establish a riveting gaming website that will help Joe User burn away hours of their time!
I need advice, however. While I have never built a website, I'm not looking for a how-to guide on how to build a website, but more or less advice on what programming languages I should study and use to build the website that will provide the features I'm looking for.
So here's my idea. I'd like to use it as a portfolio. I'm an aspiring game developer, and I want this website to be a platform for playing my games. Specifically, I'd like to design games in which users have to log in, and can play with other users in a non real time format (Imagine words with friends).
If there are any tools or tricks that might help me develop a website from scratch with these features as well, please let me know.
Anyway, thanks for your time guys. If you want me to clarify anything please let me know.
