What should every programmer know about web development?

Where do I start if I want to build a web based application? Books, tutorials, online resources. From a quick look at the web I can see that Html, Css and JavaScript should be the subjects to learn. Do you agree? What would you recommend to a professional C++ programmer?

Once you've chosen a framework (any will do, don't worry too much about choosing the best one), look at tutorials, there should be plenty about 'creating your first application'.

Once you're there, it should be fairly simple to find more information and figure out what you need to know in order to go further.

Good luck!
