No room in the market for more Web Developers?

Ever since I was young, I have really enjoyed creating websites. I know there is no chance of me going professional yet since my knowledge is still lacking. I know HTML, CSS and some JavaScript/PHP. Recently, I’ve been looking into learning more and moving onto AJAX and the likes to help me with my future goals. However, after looking around for Web Development jobs (purely out of curiousity), it seems that so many people make this career choice! Is it because it’s easy? Is it because it is well-paid? Or maybe it’s because the future is based around computers and websites, well.. they’re inevitably everywhere!

I was peaking to a friend recently about my aspiration to become a Web Developer and his view was that Web Development is yet another dying trade. After looking into it, I fear that maybe he was correct. I think there is still a requirement for Web Developers, but is this still going to be the case in a few years when I graduate?

Do you need a Web Designer and Developer? Contact me and I will see what I can do for you!

  1. I think there will be a number of contributing factors here. Learning HTML/CSS and perhaps even some JS has become the norm for teenagers growing up spending so much time exposed to web technology. With their foot in the door, many will consider taking it seriously as a career.

    However, as I write this there’s a known shortage of PHP developers in my area. Why? I have no idea.

    • I’ve noticed that too. Although PHP is very useful, it is often forgotten. Many people learn HTML and some CSS and stop there. I don’t understand why, since in my opinion, PHP is just as easy as HTML to learn and comes in very handy at times.

      JavaScript, in my opinion, seems to be the one that is quite often lacking now. Maybe this is because there’s a lot more to it than HTML/CSS.
