What does a Web Developer do?

Do you have a flare for design? Do you like to work with computers to create new effects and special features? Do you enjoy the technical side of the internet? As a web developer, you are responsible for the technical aspect of creating and maintaining a webpage. Using software, you can create applications for the Web, oversee the implementation and production of websites, and often determine the layout and design for the website.

On screen aspects

In order to become a web developer, you may have to learn how to use multiple web development software programs and write html code. You may be responsible for all aspects of the webpage, and therefore have to understand all components of the website as well as how to integrate databases and other information systems through your software. You may also have to know what appeals to an audience and how to fix problems that occur on the site. Communication skills may be necessary to work with the company or person your are developing the webpage for.

Web environment

The work environment for web developers can vary greatly depending on what company you work for (if you work for a company) or if you are an independent web developer. Being an independent developer gives you the opportunity to set your own hours and take only the jobs you want to take. Working for companies, however, can also offer you some independence with hours and give you additional benefits such as insurance and paid leave.

Most of your time will be spent in front of a computer. This could be from the comforts of your home, or in an office or cubicle in a company. Your job may be a standard 40 hour per week job, or it could be more or less if you work independently, or if an issue arises that has to be fixed immediately.

Education to development

In order to become a web developer, you must have some training in using the software required in the field. If you work for a company, this may include a certificate, an associate degree, or a bachelor's degree, depending on where you decide to work. The more education you possess in the field, the greater chance for advancement, especially if you are working for a corporation.

Also, the greater your knowledge of different software systems, the greater chance you have of working for a company of your choosing.

Web growth and earnings

This field is growing much faster than the average job since most companies now are in need of web developers, and want to have their business on the web. Since web development can be done from almost anywhere, staying up to date on new programs and software can help you get ahead.
