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.

1) Get a Linux host with root access, like from Rackspace cloud. You are only charged while it is switched on. If you leave it on for a month 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 excellent choice.

4) Implement the polling app from the Django tutorial, or maybe you have your own idea of a simple app to make.

5) Learn CSS and throw in some javascript to make it pretty.

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.
