Web development is a fast-growing area of IT that continues to gain importance as e-commerce, social networking, communications, and informational resources become a bigger part of every day life. This can be a challenging, yet fun area of IT since it requires both analytical skills (i.e., coding) and creative perspectives (i.e., problem solving). To learn web development requires the investment of many hours of hands-on practice in coding as well as hands-on practice debugging mistakes.
As the student progresses through this course, they’ll apply what they’ve learned by developing practice websites. While developing their web programming competencies requires significant time, precision, and patience, most students find this to be a very rewarding area of study with great professional relevance for today’s IT careers.
