Overview

Is web development right for you?

To say web developers need to be technology fanatics is an understatement! To succeed in and enjoy this career path, you’ll need to love working with computers and technology. You’ll be building websites from the ground up, so you’ll need to enjoy programming, problem-solving and developing web-based strategies and methodologies.

As you’ll be working closely with clients and other IT professionals such as web designers, you will ideally be a strong communicator. It’s your job to determine and deliver on clients’ needs, so sound consulting skills are a bonus, as is the patience and willingness to make changes until goals are achieved. The ability to manage projects and deadlines (often tight ones) is also key to this role.

Technology is always advancing, so web developers also need to be dedicated to ongoing professional development and upskilling to keep up with the latest developments in the world of IT.
