Here’s the straightforward answer to this question: web developer build and maintain websites.
In short, they literally form how you experience the web. The new websites which want users to enjoy their experience them will need great web developers — and they’re usually willing to fork over some serious amounts of cash to get these top-class web developers.
“A successful website does three things:
It attracts the right kinds of visitors.
Guides them to the main services or product you offer.
Collect Contact details for future ongoing relation.”
― Mohamed Saad
- Write web pages with markup languages.
Create quality prototypes and mockups.
Build a WordPress site from the ground up.
Understand HTML and CSS.
Understand UI, UX, and learning usability.
Develop appealing and functional web apps.
Provide website maintenance and improvements.
These are the most common requirements, but your tasks will vary depending on the web development job as well as your web development ability and focuses.
There is three development specialities that you should be aware of:
- Frontend development: The “frontend” refers to “stuff” on a website that you see and interact with, e.g. dropdowns, icons, etc.
Backend development: The “backend” is like the wires that connect everything. Without it, the website can’t actually function. The backend deals with servers, applications, databases, etc.
Full-stack development: This is the summing together of both backend and frontend web development.
“The true ENTREPRENEUR is a risk-taker, not an excuse maker.”
Web development will be in demand for a long time to come.
In fact, the US Bureau of Labor Statistics has predicted a 13% growth in available web development jobs through 2028.
In summary — if you can develop and use this skill, you will be in demand for the foreseeable future.
