Though it often feels like it if you haven’t been on the working end, entire websites don’t just pop up randomly and effortlessly, like pesky dandelions on a lawn the moment your back is turned.
Unless you’re building something simple like a minimalist portfolio site, a beautifully coded website with all sorts of widgets, forms, custom fonts, and call-to-action buttons requires the talent and know-how of a thoughtful, skilled web developer. They’re the people—artists, really—who spend heaps of time making sure a site look polished from the moment it goes live, then maintain its freshness and functionality over the course of its use.
It makes sense, then, that the field of “web dev” is experiencing faster-than-average job growth right now: With everyone and their grandmother using the World Wide Web, companies need well-trained, design-oriented tech experts to make their #content stand out.
Eventually, you’ll be able to handle advanced developer techniques such as iQuery, MySQL, and Twitter Bootstrap—and by the time you’ve completed all 28 hours of content, you’ll have built 14 complete websites, gained invaluable hands-on experience, and earned a certification through Udemy. Prepare to be fawned over by startups everywhere.
