You likely use Facebook, the web, and apps every day. Why not design and build them while also entering a in-demand field? According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, there is a strong demand for knowledge workers having skills that span user interface design and development to build and integrate web sites and apps. Their work typically entails working with clients to design, code, test, and maintain web sites and mobile apps. However, developers in this space must be adept at a range of technologies and tools. Among them are HTML 5, CSS, JavaScript, Adobe Creative Cloud (e.g. Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Dreamweaver), video editing, and responsive design.

Don't just facebook or surf the web or play an app, why not help design it? There is a critical need for people with technical capabilities needed to successfully create and develop effective web sites and apps. They are responsible for designing, coding and modifying websites and apps, from layout to function and according to a client's specifications, developers strive to create visually appealing sites that feature user-friendly design and easy navigation. Developers must take into account a client's products or services as well as its target market to create a site that appeals to its customers or intended audience.
