How to Become a Web Developer
If you want to create a consistent income source and aren't afraid to explore a few easy to understand programming languages, web development can be the perfect job for you. It may not be a foolproof way to get rich quickly, but it can be used to build a sustainable, growing business for many people. More than this, you won't need a degree in computer science to achieve this goal; there are lots of free tutorials on the Internet.
In a nutshell, web developers create, edit, and maintain other people's websites and Internet-related projects. The developer will begin his or her work by creating a website mock-up. Then, the client will suggest changes, which will be incorporated in the first prototype. As soon as that prototype is okayed, the developer will start to convert it into a fully functional site.
There are three types of web coders: front-end developers, back-end developers, and full-stack developers. A front-end developer programs the visible aspects of the website: its structure, menus, pages, etc. - in a nutshell, what the end users see when they load the website using their Internet browsers. Back-end developers program the server-side sections of the web applications, creating databases and the source code that connects to them, edits their data, and so on. Finally, full-stack developers can tackle both jobs, being able to create complex web projects from start to finish.
If this sounds too much for you, don't worry; most web developers only take care of front-end projects (mostly website design), and they manage to earn a good living. Not only that, but many people are able to work remotely from the comfort of their own homes, or from any other place in the world.
Here's another incentive: as you learn the craft, you may be able to come up with a great project idea, implement it in your spare time, and then sell it for a lot of cash, retiring in your 30s ;). Alternatively, if you are a skilled web developer, you are guaranteed to find a well-paid job that will help you live the good life.
As you can see, starting a career in web development is not an effortless task, but the effort is well worth it. I am familiar with web coding, so drop me a message if you run into trouble, and I will try to help. Good luck!
