Web Development - A High Income Skill? - You Decide

You want to become a web developer and you ask yourself what job opportunities do I have? We introduce you to three possible focus areas in web development!

How do you work as a front-end developer?

As a front-end developer, you create the visible parts of a website or app that users see and interact with in their web browsers. You build the front-end with languages ​​like HTML, CSS and JavaScript. With HTML (HyperText Markup Language) you put together the structure and content of a website, CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) is the design of HTML on the website (colors, fonts, wallpapers, etc.) and JavaScript - an absolute game changer - allows adding interactivity, more complex animations, and creating full-fledged web applications. With Javascript you can implement what was previously reserved for backend programming languages, as the browsers have become much more powerful. You take over the design and create a working website.

The salary of a Front-end Developer ranges between $55,000 to $90,0000 annually.


How do you work as a back-end developer?

As a back-end developer, you're building parts of websites that users do not interact with directly. You work in other words "behind the scenes". PHP, Ruby and Python are the back-end programming languages. Much of the content management systems and large complex web applications are based on back-end programming language. Therefore, many employers are looking for "Ruby developers" and "PHP developers". Typically, back-end developers work with front-end developers to make their code work within the design, the Web site or the application, and the front-end.

As a back-end developer you deserve a little more than the front-end developer. The salary is between $ 60,800 to over $ 100,000 annually.


How do you work as a Full Stack Developer?

The front-end and back-end boundary is shrinking and the demand for "full-stack developers", which can step in anywhere when needed, is steadily increasing. As a Full Stack Developer, you work with both the front-end and the back-end. You can tackle projects that include databases, create user-centric sites, and collaborate with clients during the design phase. HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and one or more back-end languages ​​are among your skills. Usually, Full Stack Developers specialize in a particular programming language.

The annual income of a Full Stack Developer is between $ 60,000 to $110,000.


What options do you have as a self-employed Web Developer?

The demand for freelancers is very high in the developer area. You have the advantage to choose the customers and projects yourself and your chances are good you will find follow-up projects.

Your annual income can be "What Ever You Want" - it depends on how much effort you put into getting work.

So your chances are good to find a well-paid web development job both as an employee and as a self-employed person.
