Website Development is Not an Idiot’s Job

Website development or web development is considered as an idiot’s job in many parts of the world. There are supportive arguments in favor of this view and those are:

  • Web developers work in a cubical they don’t have good working conditions.
  • Web development field is flooded with newer technology each day so your experience is worthless.
  • Website development is not much prestige earning profession.
  • Website developers have not much chance to earn decent money.

When we see these arguments in depth we will find it that they do not stand at all. First of all web developers work in inferior working condition, which is not true. There are many places where they have good computers and separate offices according to their title. Working in cubical has its own benefits good thing is that you can form a team during working very easily in cubical than in separate offices.

Second, if you are expert in C language for Microsoft technology that is considered out of date in front of C# of today’s technology. Just think over that C# is based on C itself so the person who wishes to learn C# and knows C very well will learn C# within a short span of time because rules for syntax are same like there are same variables, integers and same for loops as found in C. Thus, no experience is worthless here.

Third, prestige for website developers is might be an issue in northeast Asian countries but not is USA or Canada or Australia or UK. There is good reputation for a web programmer.

Fourth, earning money is not restricted up to getting salary. Web developer can work as a consultant on internet for a remote project and earn decent money too. Good programmer instead of working full time at one place can adopt a career as a consultant and earn good money.

Finally, Today’s web development is not a one-man show rather it is teamwork. You may be familiar with Web 2.0. Programmer for Web 2.0 should have mastery on various technologies like Ajax and RIA. Web 2.0 extends beyond the desktop it might have reached at your mobile, your home appliances and many instrument used in day-to-day life. These all are demanding strong fundamental knowledge of programming as well as management knowledge in the form of project management.

Website development when done at large scale demands involvement of business, as a whole means programmers are to understand the business, its needs and its problems. Suppose you are going to design an e-commerce mall/supermarket then you need to understand all products, its transactions its selling and shipping etc. Programmer has to think over at businessperson’s point of views; these all demands good educational background as well as guts to understand the market itself.

When you visit a good Website Development Company you may realize that website development today involves experts other than coders. Fine art artists dominate drawing and designing aspects. Animation is a field of animators or multimedia persons. Image and videos are mastery of photography professionals. Now you may have convinced yourself that website design is not an idiot’s job!
