Why Learn Web Development

You can flex your creativity and problem-solving skills as a web developer, one of the most in-demand, high-paying jobs in tech. Web developers write the code for how to make an application or website work. Developing a website's design is the focus of a front-end Web Developer. Back-end developers are responsible for the structure of software applications, servers, and databases. As a full-stack developer, you have the knowledge of both front-end and back-end development. As a web developer, you may specialize in becoming a software developer, a junior software engineer, and more.

Most web developers can work remotely from anywhere in the world. Freelancers who work as web developers are also able to become their own bosses.

The Demand for Web Developers

From Virginia and DC to the United States as a whole, software developers are in high demand.

According to Burning Glass, the employment of software developers in Virginia is projected to grow 20.8% from 2022 to 2032. Businesses actively seeking web development professionals span across all industries and sizes, including local high-tech employers like General Dynamics, CACI International, and E-Trade Financial, to name a few.

Hiring for roles like Software Engineer, Junior Software Engineer, and Systems Engineer, these companies are rapidly growing and building out their software development teams, and Virginia Tech Coding Bootcamp grads will be well equipped for these roles and many others.
