Web developers build and maintain websites. They are responsible for all technical aspects of a website including its performance (a site’s speed) and its capacity (the amount of traffic it can handle). For many individuals and companies, the work of web developers is a lifeline for finding customers and staying relevant in an economy that requires a solid online presence for success.
If you’ve always been a computer whiz or you’re simply interested in technology with a penchant for problem-solving and creative thinking, a career in web development may be just right for you. Let’s explore some of the benefits you can expect to enjoy after training in this rewarding and growing field.
Particularly if you choose to work in front-end web development, there will be plenty of opportunities to use your creativity. You’ll get to come up with attractive and functional designs that meet each of your client’s needs. In collaboration with user experience experts who ensure that a website runs smoothly, you’ll make decisions about colour, layout, and features, using your aesthetic sense and knowledge of coding.
When you finish your computer service technician program, you’ll have the freedom to explore a variety of work environments. In addition to being an in-house web developer for a marketing agency or a large corporation, you can become a freelance web developer in complete control of your hours and the kind of work you do. No matter your preferred work environment, there are plenty of opportunities for advancement and specialization in the web development industry.
After you’ve completed training, it’s worth trying your hand at front-end, back-end, and full-stack development to see what you like most. As you gain experience, there will be countless opportunities to advance through the ranks of your career, for example, in managerial positions or entrepreneurship roles.
British Columbia alone is expected to see over one million web developer job openings in the next 10 years.

After completing a web developer program, you can be sure to enjoy career development as the field of software continues to evolve.
Web developers make an average salary of over $73,000 in British Columbia–and earning much more is not uncommon.
