I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You mean you got a job as a Web Developer without knowing anything about it?
Or you want to know what it takes to get a job as a Web Developer?

Either way, start here: http://www.codecademy.com/en/tracks/code-year
You'll learn the basics of HTML, CSS, JS, all being required for both web developer position and web designer position.

Then start learning :)
Finish the free course from my first post, then move on to more complicated things.
HTML5 and CSS3 Fundamentals

Build a website from the ground up by first learning the fundamentals of HTML5 and CSS3, the two popular programming languages used to present content online. HTML deals with fonts, colors, graphics, and hyperlinks, while CSS describes how HTML elements are to be displayed.

does I need go to university or reading book or take other training?
Dan CraciunIT ConsultantCommented:
The university is a good option if you have 4 years to spare and need a degree.
To learn you only need an open mind and the Internet.

Try the classic "PHP and MySQL Web Development": http://www.amazon.com/PHP-MySQL-Web-Development-Edition/dp/0672329166

There is a new edition on the way, but will be available in the fall.
