Web development so far has been the order of the trend for the business and market demands digital technology. Apparently, There's a huge shortage of quality developers in this industry. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics by 2020, an estimate of 1,000,000 computer programming jobs in the U.S will go unfilled. That’s only in the US alone! Web development will be the hot cake in the market till digital marketing and online promotions are there, we need something on world wide web to carry this legacy on.
2. Doesn’t require any formal study
There are lots of options for you to learn how to code it’s either you can get a CS Degree, Self-taught or Bootcamps. Personally, I prefer self-taught. Because you can learn at your time and your own pace. but it’s possible that you’ll wind up missing out on fundamentals that will be sorely missed later on. unlike taking a CS Degree and Bootcamps they have their own Syllabus.
Many beginner dev courses are available at low cost, or even free, online. They tend to be good at teaching the basics, but often don’t go far beyond that. Fortunately, once you understand the basics, the rest is really up to you. Your determination and eagerness to learn will help you achieve your goal 😁
By becoming a web developer, you will earn hell out of extra money! If you are one those people who have to stretch from paycheck to paycheck to get the bills paid, if you’re not ready to look for a higher-paying full-time position, shift to another career, or don’t want to commit to adding a permanent part-time job to your schedule, consider web development a flexible side job. You can work as much or as little as you’d like. You’ll be able to set your schedule based on how much you want to boost your earnings, and you will end up with some new skills to bolster your resume.
4. Multi-faceted exposures
Freelancing allows individuals to gain access to clients beyond any geographic barriers, be it different cities in the country or even overseas locations. This will help you stretch beyond geography and work on what rewards your skill the best. Filipinos are known worldwide for being extremely skilled and great working partners. English being a popular language in the country helps in breaking continental language barriers and helps freelancers find well-paying remote projects across the world, with extremely lucrative pay scales.
5. Inspires you to think outside the box
When people think about coding or programming, they don’t consider it to be a creative pursuit. Personally, I believe that it is one of the best avenues for creativity available today. It requires you to become a problem solver. Well, web developers have the luxury of being able to flex their creative muscles. Especially for front-end web developers, creativity is the key. You have the liberty to create first-class user experiences and attractive websites. Especially if you work for a startup, you'll get much more creative rein.
