Web Development Learning Path

A web developer is more than someone who can write the coding necessary to customize a website. They are the people who put the website together. They work with the graphic artists, copywriters, and coders in some cases, to put together a website that is going to appeal to the client’s audience. As a web developer, you need to be able to create the design for the website, code it, and sell it to your clients. Most web developers work on a freelance basis so creating a solid portfolio and reputation is important.
