Website Development Part 2

Problem solving is the most important of the process. You can look at everything as a problem, everything needs a resolution. So if you're presented with design mocks from your art director, the problem there is how do these flat images become a website?

A career as a web developer can take you anywhere; you can become a project manager, overseeing the development of many web projects, if that's your thing. You can become a senior developer and manage multiple people, you can become an art director, and maybe you'd realize that are is more of your thing. And it's a job that you can spin off into almost any profession in the industry. You could work abroad and travel but still work, and how many other jobs can you do that?


- So this looks a little daunting, it looks like a foreign language. How would I even get started in something like this?

The easiest way is to Google it, is to find out what language you want to start with. PHP is probably one of the easiest to get in and one of the most sought after by employers in the development world right now. You can just type into Google how to code PHP and there will be tons of resources there.

The most rewarding part of the job is when people get it. Everybody is able to work together to make a project real and when you've worked with a team of people for months on a project, and finally it's done, it's been realized, it's this real thing, and then you can show people, it's a great people.

To summarize, some of the skills you'll need include spatial perception, verbal and written comprehension, finger dexterity, you'll also need to be innovative, detail oriented. You'll usually require 3 to 4 years of post secondary education. The average salary can range from $44,500 to $53,000 per year. The future outlook for this job is promising as employment opportunities will be increasing in the coming years. [Part 1]
