      Hi,

      Do you mean hardware or software?
      I would start from a software point of view. So first, as a traveler, I’d go with antivirus and VPN (protection is very important). Then I would go with a more specific software based on your agency needs. And of course a WiFi device.

      Cheers

      For software, I think the most important tools are:
      1. A browser to login into the webbased order pages for travel agents with the tour operators, car rental companies and other companies he sells services of.
      2. An ERP-like system for invoicing, payments and bookkeeping, probably also some CRM to keep track of what his customers do.
      3. Depending on what his customers are an option for them (like a chat on his website, or a business account for Whatsapp) to contact him.

      2-3 weeks to 1.5 months

      Depending on how much time you can devote to programming each day, you can learn the basics in 2-3 weeks to 1.5 months. You can learn the basics of JavaScript on your own in 3-4 months. After that, it’ll be easier for you to learn other languages, particularly PHP. Then you’ll need to dive deeper into the subject, I think you’re very much aware of that. Regarding the blog, I suggest you visit https://tipsogram.com/. There’s a lot of info there for beginners in the IT field. Plus, there’re plenty of free courses available out there as well. I think this option would workout well for you, as you’ve already had some experience with web development.
