i dont really know where this belongs...its not really a language specific question

what is the best way to make web apps? ie what are the best technologies to learn or use

i know a web app needs 3 things
UI
Database
business object code

but there are so many ways to do this

html,css,javascript
asp.net
python
ruby

and all the technologies on top of that

I dont know the difference when you should implement one over the other
is it about scale?

would like to be able to build a basic web app
in the browser would be the best, so i guess html css and js

connected to what type of database? plain sql? or wht is a good one to learn to use? or are they all similar

does anybody know a good resource that tackles all these questions?

If you want to keep everything in the browser it's almost imposible to use a db, you will need node.js or something like that and that runs on the server, not in the browser.
An alternative to a traditional db would be taffyDB for example
 
You can't have everything. Where would you put it?
