What will I do as a web developer?
Why do I need to learn web development?
It is important to have websites that look good and work properly no matter how they are accessed by the public. Helping an organization reach their target audience means giving that audience information and resources whether they are sitting in front of a computer at home or visiting a website on their phone while on the go. Understanding both mobile and desktop web development will ensure that your work is seen by the maximum number of people regardless of where and how they choose to access your site.
What education do I need to become a web developer?
Is a web developer the same as a software engineer?
Not exactly. Every web developer is considered a software engineer who specializes exclusively in developing web applications. However, every software engineer is not a web developer as they often design, build and maintain software outside of website applications.
What is the average salary of a web developer?
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average salary of a web developer is currently just under $68,000 per year. This salary can vary widely depending on your experience level, education, and the type of organization you work for.
Are web developers in demand?
Yes, web developers are in demand. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the job outlook for web developers is very good. Employment is projected to grow by 15% through 2026 which is considered much faster than average. Understanding how to develop for both mobile and desktop users will improve your employment prospects even further.
What kind of hours do web developers work?
The hours of web developers vary depending on the volume of work. Typically, you will work a normal Monday through Friday, 9-5, but this can change quite a bit if you are coming up on a deadline or working on a very large project. Your hours can also be affected if you decide to go into business for yourself as this could mean that you choose when you want to work as it fits within your lifestyle.
Where do web developers work?
Since our world is one that does business online, web developers can literally work for any company in any industry. According to the BLS, 1 in 6 web developers currently work in computer systems design and other similar services industries. In addition, they report that 1 in 6 are self-employed. Your specific work environment will depend in some ways on your employer. You could be required to come on-site and work in an office every day, or you may be able to work remotely from home. Regardless of where you work physically, you can be sure that you will spend the majority of your time in front of a computer screen in this role.

"This course will challenge you, but will help you develop a foundation for the new skills required in modern website design." - Thomas E.
