Web development is a growing field of interest as more and more jobs require employees to manage information on web sites, particularly as the internet is now the primary source of information and communication for most businesses, government agencies, and non-profit organizations.
Careers in Web Development include Front-End and Back-End development. This includes proficiency in markup languages, designing the user experience, programming and scripting to connect all information on the Web. This could include website creation, website updates and administration, database connectivity, networking and security. A good Web Developer will have a combination of many of these skill sets.
