Web Development

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Creating Internet-Enabled Profits

Websites provide and share information, sell products and build relationships, and it's all made possible by skilled web developers.

A web developer combines web programming (how a website functions) with web design (how it looks). You will use a variety of tools to create websites, including programming languages such as HTML (text), CSS (visuals), Javascript (dynamic content) and design programs such as Photoshop and Dreamweaver. You will also learn how to add e-commerce components, such as database-driven content, shopping carts and payment processing.

Companies of all sizes do business online and the career possibilities are endless, just like the Internet. You can work for a corporation, for a web development firm or for yourself as an independent contractor.
