I have done Electronics and Communication Engineering. I have good knowledge about C/C++ but want to get into web development.
I am confused that from where should I start.
Should I first study some books or start developing some project and learning functionality side by side? Please guide

Well you don’t need to use PHP. If you already know C/C++, then Java and the .NET (or as some friends refer to it, .NOTYET) languages should be easy to learn.
If you do want to use PHP, then have a look at the LAMP stack – that’s Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP. There’s a Windows alternative, but WAMP sounds dodgy.
Look for LAMP tutorials online and take it from there.

starts with HTML and CSS, there’s a lot of resources available online, mozilla mdn is quite helpful, also webplatforms.org.
then one day you might get bored, you want to create dynamic page, fancier stuff, so dwells into php and mysql. sky is the limit from now on.
once you’ve gotten hold of the basic, you might as well explore interesting framework and cms out there

w3schools.com is a very good way to start. read EVERYTHING there. then you can use PHP or JSP (two very different technologies) to test out stuff and build web pages. If you choose JSPs, Google offers free hosting with Google AppEngine Smile
