What does a Web Developer do?

It is important for a web developer to know the language of programming. With this knowledge, they will be able to do the technical aspects of web design such as designing the layout, establishing servers, and much more. Web designers work with companies and design the website based on the information provided by their clients such as their target audience and the content they would like to post on the website. A web designer may have to know how to convert files such as music and video and make them web compatible. If you work for a large company, you may have to choose if you’ll work with either front end or back end development. Front end developers focus on the visual design of a website and make sure that the layout is compatible with all internet browsers. Back end developers work with servers and the performance of the website. If you work for a small company, you may be in charge of all of these aspects.

West Hills College’s degree and certificate programs will prepare you with the programming knowledge necessary for this career. At West Hills College, you will get hands-on experience with programming and web design in the various degree and certificate programs offered.
