Website development refers to the entire process of building a website – from its design, to its construction, to its maintenance stage. The field comprises three main roles: front-end web development, back-end web development, and full-stack web development.

Front-end web development primarily focuses on the client-facing elements of a website. This includes its interface, navigational buttons, and any multimedia features.

Back-end web development zeroes in on the server-side elements of a webpage – such as the scripting, databases, and general architectural features that keep it up and running. This particular role concentrates on managing the behind-the-scenes activities that take place when interactions (i.e. online purchases, file-sharing, navigation) occur on the site.

Finally, full-stack web development combines both areas into a single role. Full-stack web developers have the advanced skillset to design and develop complete websites and web applications, making them highly valuable professionals in any IT setting.

Successful website developers need a balance of both hard and soft skills to advance in the industry.

On the technical side, sought-after web developers typically fare best with a “full-stack” knowledge of the field, as this grants them a complete, comprehensive understanding of the entire development process. As such, they can carry out both front and back-end tasks when the situation calls for it.

All web developers are also recommended to train in cyber security – as this field deals with the crucial practice of securing website data, systems, and networks from existing and emerging online threats. With cyber crimes rising at an exponential rate each year, the tools and knowledge of reliable IT security will grow ever-more invaluable.

Additionally, sound knowledge and experience in online marketing can help web developers rank their sites higher in search engines. This area includes skills in search engine optimisation (SEO), copywriting, and a familiarity with social media.

Of course, soft skills in communication, critical thinking, analysis, and creativity are also highly valued. The best web developers have a keen ability to work and share ideas with others; a sharp eye for the fine details; and the drive to innovate and think out-of-the-box.

Aspiring web developers typically require a formal qualification or two to find employment in this field. According to Labour Market Insights, these can include credentials in web design, digital media, digital design, and other related sectors. While university degrees are a common study pathway, vocational education and training (VET) courses are also a popular choice – providing students with a highly flexible, affordable option towards building the skills they need.

Lumify Learn offers such courses at varying skill levels (boot camp, certificate, and diploma-level training), comprised of widely recognised qualifications to help you stand out in the job market.

However, training web developers are also recommended to pursue their own personal projects – helping them build and explore their skills through practical experience. Internships are also an effective way of achieving this, helping you apply your training to an actual workplace environment, while building your connections with new peers and potential employers in the industry.

All of our courses require students to be 17 years or older and have adequate language, literacy and numeracy skills to complete the course. Beyond minimum entry requirements, it’s important that this is the right course for you. Speak with one of our Course Advisors to ensure this course delivers the learning experience and outcome you are looking for. We call this our “right course, right fit” policy.
