To be a complete web developer is really a Tall order. It requires years and years of study and real world development to become expert in entire LAMP Stack and then the JavaScript & CSS Stack. And now a days there all these frameworks too, which I personally hate and think mastering Javascript instead is better.

You already define yourself as web developer. Meaning you already are a web developer. Maybe you should have phrased your question : "how to become a *more* complete web developer.

Without knowing your present competences, I would say : "stay curious". Be on the lookout for new sites, see how they are built and react. Ask yourself "do I know how to do that" ?

Among prized competences today, being able to support correctly mobile devices as well as PCs/Mac is paramount. No site can exist without rendering correctly on a 320x400 screen just as well as 1980x1080.

There is a ton of material to help learn on the web. It should not be too difficult to find the information you need to apply that to your preferred development tools. Since you did not share much details on your profile, I cannot post any link, but am sure you will find.

Mktch, 1st your Profile Country IP Flag shows that you are from France but your profile City says you are in Wilmington, so which one is True?

2nd, I generally agree with most of what you have said except that I do not at all think it is feasible to think that you can become a competent Web developer by looking at other Sites out there. on the Web, since becoming a "Complete" Web developer requires mastering layers upon layers of software engineering technologies.

I travel between continents on a regular basis.

The word "complete" in itself means mostly nothing, for lack of frame of reference. I started so long ago (1982) there was very little "complete" web developers at the time. Most people of my era learned by doing. That is why I believe it is possible to learn by doing.

Seems important, too, not to discourage someone who asks for insight.

BTW, since the OP already defines himself as web developer, I guess he is already on the path to learn. As for myself, with 30+ years of experience, I still learn everyday. Life would be so dull if I knew everything ;)

Well Mitch, if you started Software development learning WAY WAY Back, aka 1982 :(, then yes, you can indeed learn by doing. But for most People who do not have such an incredible time span to learn by doing, really intense education is only way to become serious Web developer. And yes I totally agree with you, that given the vast scope of Web development, and software (technology) in general, that one must "learn every day" to stay relevant in this field.

To expect to become a "complete web developer", would require really 10 Years of non stop learning and coding, since a modern high end Web site has so many technology layers involved in it, from the LAMP stack to the front end layers of CSS, JavaScript, etc.. After all, just think that typical Big Web Site, employs 1000s and 1000s of Developers to cover all these layers of software development and hosting. Keeping in mind that after you develop a Site, that is just 30% of the job at the most and the real hard part is maintaining and operating a Site and keeping it safe from Hackers. So it is a real tall order developing and operating a real Big live Site.

You will NEVER be a complete web developer. The web is changing too fast for anyone to keep up much less become the best. Your best bet is to keep on top of new developments the best you can so that you can keep your customers happy for, as you know, without satisfied customers it is pointless to try becoming a complete web developer.

You need to study at least 7 years to know all the Web technologies and then at least 3 years of real world coding where you put out real working Wen services used by many. There is no short cut for this. Or Alt you can raise $10Mill and hire the team of 20 developers to this for you.

Yes, agree with U2. At least 7 years of learning and then another 3 years of real world serious kick ass developing.

If you mean how do I become a complete web developer for developing and hosting a Site on your own, GOD help you with that since you need to study and learn the entire LAMP Stack. Plus the entire Client side languages. These together can take 10+ Years to do, if that. OTOH, if you mean how do I become a complete web developer working within a large company where you will have a specific task, such as Client side JavaScript, then you can learn and master that to a decent state within 6 Months of learning and 2 Years of coding. Hope this helps.

My point as well. To become a complete web developer is sort of an oxymoron. It is like saying to become a complete House developer. Are you talking about a Modern House or a Shack?

That is a very broad question. But if you really want to become a Complete Web Developed then you need to know on Server side:
1- Php or some server side programming language such as Rubby
2- MySQL
And then on Client side:
1- HTML
2- CSS
3- JavaScript

But of course to really become a complete web developer, you should also master the Server side OS, such as Linux and Apache. And now a days there are so many variations of the JavaSCript which you really need to master, such as AJAX.

So all and all, you need at least 6 Years of intensive Study plus 4 Years of real World work, to become a complete web developer. It is lots and lots of Knowledge. Good luck :)

Your answer is very good as well.
And I would add to your list on server side, email servers as well. Since of course typical Web site cannot function without email servers and email servers are a Monster to properly manage and operate.

And dont forget the Operating system, Linux, either. Without the OS operating, none of those above layers matter.
