What does a Web Developer do?

Web developers work within the design code and modification of websites according to their client’s specifications to handle every aspect of the process of a website’s creation from layout to function. They make their clients’ visions become a reality by ensuring the finished website has its appropriate and fitting applications.

Web developers handle the look and feel of a website as well as its technical and logistical components. This includes performance and capacity measurement and continuing to create and test its applications once they are in hand. They write code for the site often using HTML or XML programming languages and codes, and they break technical aspects down into simpler terms for the client. They will also collaborate with graphics teams and design departments to determine the website’s specific look, feel, and layout. They are also often responsible for the monitoring of the website’s traffic once it goes live. Web developers have completed a bachelor’s degree in computer science or related fields.
