Web Developer

When you look at a website or app, you probably don't stop to think about everything that's going on behind the scenes. Web developers create websites by mastering and implementing a number of coding languages, including HTML, CSS, C#, Java, PHP, and more. In addition to coding the design portion of 

the website, they ensure that the back end of the site works as it should. There are three types of web developers: Front End, Back End, and Full Stack.


Behind every website is a Web developer. Web Developer VBOs are similar to web designers but different in that they typically use coding to build, create, and maintain websites from scratch. Web developers typically are much more involved in the website and web application creating process than designers. They use a number of coding languages such as HTML, CSS, Java, PHP, and more to create custom websites. Successful Web Developer VBOs may use a number of programs to create sites, from text editors to Dreamweaver or Muse.
