The most effective course you can take is SELF-EDUCATION. The job you've chosen is very interesting and it depends on you to become more and more specialized. Even great programmers learn things they didn't know every day.
For HTML I can reccommend youhttp://www.htmlhelp.com/ as a beginning (I beg your pardon in case I didn't understand you and you're skilled enough to visit this site).
Ref JAVA I can suggest you to contact my younger brother Kaloian (kaloian@stones.com), who is a serious JAVA programmer currently working for an American company via Internet. Explain him where you got his email address and ask him to supply you with information. As far as I know him, he won't refuse.
Living in India will not mess with your work, as owing to Internetyou can do everything, including remote jobs and remote administration. I live in a much worse country (something like Chad or Benin) so this question doesn't bother me. IMHO, do not take any courses (especially if they are paid!) as inmy experience they

Hello,
I have heard of an institute in India called ecom@asset giving training in this field. You might like to check that up but I personally cannot vouch for this institute since I know very little about it.
Best of luck

Hi Sonia,

As a job search coach and resume pro who deals exclusively with techies, I'm contacted regularly by IT recruiters seeking web professionals. It's one of the hottest fields in IT so it seems you've made a good choice. My advice for you at this point is to do everything you can to gain experience and learn new skills.

Just a few of the skill sets that IT recruiters ask me for in a candidate:
Java, ASP, HTML, e-commerce applications, VB, COM/ActiveX, VBscript, Javascript, and database experience

Hope that helps!

My suggestion is a bit more complex than the others posted so far. They are all correct.

What you need to do is identify for yourself what areas of web development excite you the most. Is it HTML? Java? These are the areas that you need to develop. Virtually all aspects of web development are in demand right now from HTML coders to Enterprise Java Beans architects. You need to focus on one specialty while remaining versed in the other aspects. For example, I do Enterprise Java development but Ikeep myself up to date on the various flavors of HTML (like DHTML, etc), XML, JavaScript, ASP, CGI (Yes, some clients still prefer PERL), etc. They might not be my areas of expertise, but if needed, I can supply those services.

What I would suggest is that you take a look at the many aspects of the "web" and find one or two that appeal most to you and start learning everything you can get your hands on in those specific areas. The rest will sort of fall into place as you learn theother technlogies.

Hello,
I think that you have definately chosen the right field. I work for a Housing Authority and we are looking to implement a Web Site and I need to go to class and learn abount HTML and Java programming also. I think that ten years ago when I got into programming I couldn't forsee the expansion of the computer industry. However, I don't think that we are going anywhere but up from here. SO hang in there and learn both if at all possible. I am learning that I should have taken a few courses a couple of years ago.
