Web Development

Web developers design and create websites.

Introduction:

Web developers are responsible for the look of the site. They are also responsible for the site’s technical aspects, such as its performance and capacity, which are measures of a website’s speed and how much traffic the site can handle. In addition, web developers may create content for the site.

Employment Opportunities:

When creating a website, developers have to make their client’s vision a reality. They build particular types of websites, such as eCommerce, news, or gaming sites, to fit clients’ needs. Different types of websites may require different applications to work right. For example, a gaming site should be able to handle advanced graphics, whereas an eCommerce site needs a payment-processing application. The developer decides which applications and designs will best fit the site.

Employment of web developers is projected to grow 27 percent from 2014 to 2024
