What do Web Developers do?
Web developers design and create websites. They are responsible for the look of the site and for the site’s technical aspects, such as its performance and capacity, which are measures of a website’s speed and how much traffic the site can handle. In addition, web developers may create content for the site. When creating a website, developers have to make their client’s vision a reality. They build particular types of websites, such as ecommerce, news or gaming sites, to fit clients’ needs. Different types of websites may require different applications to work right. For example, a gaming site should be able to handle advanced graphics, whereas an ecommerce site needs a payment-processing application.
