Web developers work both independently and with others on a variety of day-to-day tasks and projects in which coding, problem-solving, and attention to detail are key. Typically, web developers work in a traditional in-person office setting, though some work remotely, with Monday through Friday work schedules. Extra hours may be needed or required. Some web developers are contract, freelance, or self-employed and set their own hours but typically are available during their clients’ office hours, potentially working in-person in their clients’ offices. The specifics really depend on the company or institution’s size, work culture, and objectives.
Successful web developers are passionate about their work and continue to build their skills to keep up with the latest technologies and advances and maintain their core skill set. This program is unique in that upon successful completion, you will possess a core skill set in several different programming languages.
The time allotted to complete your program has been calculated based on the number of hours for each program, so don't worry too much about not completing in time.
