In my opinion if you want to start developing both front and backend of
websites, then you should start developing a "full-stack" web
application. You'll stumble and have to redo things along the way, but
there's no better way to learn.

you'll owe maybe $16.
2) Install python, virtualenv, pip, and a web framework. Starting with
flask would be an excellent choice.
3) Install a database backend. Starting with PostgreSQL would be an
4) Implement the polling app from the Django tutorial, or maybe you have
your own idea of a simple app to make.
6) Push your commits to GitHub along the way.
Do all of this and I can't promise how long it will take, but I can
promise you'll be well on your way to becoming a strong web developer.
