Education and training:
There is no real educational path to follow to become a web developer, however, there are some college and university programs which could help an individual become a web developer. Courses in web design, Internet development, computer science, engineering and business will all be useful to prospective web developers. Most college programs last between one and three years. Web developers can also do some practice work on their own. Individuals may also develop their own web site or volunteer to create a site for a school or non-profit organization. This is a good way to gain experience before starting classes.
Web developers work for companies with websites or interests in the information found online. They can also work independently, and contract out their services, or work for a web design firm. They usually work in comfortable environments, either offices or their homes, and spend hours at the computer screen. They can often set their own hours, and usually work alone, or with a small team of computer and Internet specialists.
Typical tasks/job responsibilities
Maintain and upgrade websites
Post database information on sites
Run tests to ensure web programs and computer systems are working properly
Find and correct faults in websites
Prepare reports on sites
The typical day for a web developer will involve working with computers, analyzing, developing, and implementing web sites and web-based programs. They will research websites, as well as maintain and upgrade older sites. The job doesn't allow for much travel, as most of the work can be done from home or a head office, unless you consider endless voyages along the information superhighway traveling.
