Mobile Web Developer

The ever-increasing use of smartphones worldwide has created a great demand for mobile web developers. Smartphones include a mobile browser that is similar to the traditional desktop browser, enabling millions of mobile users to browse the web on their devices instead of a traditional computer. With more and more users accessing websites using mobile devices, businesses and organizations must adjust their websites to improve mobile experience. Although most mobile browsers can display a scaled version of a traditional website, mobile-friendly websites make it much easier for users to browse, find the information they need, and make purchases. This is especially important for e-commerce and consumer-focused websites and will become more important as more smartphone users consult their phones to browse content, buy products, and access online services.

These changes are expected to continue to drive growth in markets such as mobile web development and mobile app development for years to come. You can become a mobile web developer, and, in this course, you’ll learn the latest technologies to prepare you for a career.

What is a typical day like for a web developer?

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.
