Developers who are able to use the right tools to deliver quality web content are likely to perform well, according to the latest research from research company Comscore.
The research, published in a new Comscore study, revealed that developers with a web development background are the most likely to deliver good user experience, which is a key consideration for companies that want to attract and retain customers.
“There’s a clear correlation between web development skills and success in the software development market,” said Tim Pinder, vice president of research at Comscore, in an interview with The Irish Time.
“We’re seeing it more and more now.
It’s the key ingredient for a successful digital strategy and an even better digital team.”
Comscore also found that web developers are the only people in the world who can confidently and confidently describe their skills to prospective employers.
“The web developer skills that are in demand today are those that developers have learned over a period of time,” Mr Pinder said.
“And that’s because the web development market has matured.”
Online learning, the rise of mobile and the rise in mobile devices are all factors that help to attract web developers to the market, he said.
A survey by Comscore showed that of the more than 3,000 developers surveyed, 85 per cent had used an online tool to help them build websites, while nearly three-quarters had developed their own content.
This, Mr Pinders said, is where developers are really at their best, with almost three-fourths having created content on mobile devices.
“They know how to use a mobile device and understand the user needs,” he said, adding that the tools that developers use to create and publish content can be very valuable.
“That’s the only place where the market is growing.”
For those developers who want to make it in the industry, there is an opportunity for them to take on a larger role in the development process.
The role of a web developer will not only involve building websites, but also creating content.
“You will be responsible for all the content that the site is built on,” Mr Nel, the web developer, said.
“That will also involve making sure it is safe for the users and you are doing a good job.”
As web developers we need to be able to deliver a safe experience for our users.””
I will be putting in all the work, but it will be a lot more than just coding.
You will be designing the website and building the user experience.
