Long before even a whisper of the Coronavirus, demand for web developers had been projected to grow 13 percent from 2018 to 2028. This should not come as a surprise because, according to WebFX, 75 percent of consumers judge an organization’s credibility based on the design of its website, and 89 percent will shop with a competitor following a poor user experience.
With online sales growing strongly, along with the growing popularity of mobile devices, front-end development has never seemed like a more worthwhile and lucrative career path – especially if e-commerce continues being the norm throughout these unprecedented times.
But what does it take to become a successful front-end developer?
Dominic Myers answers this exact question in his new book Front-End Developer, intended for all aspiring front-end developers and students looking to forge their career in web development.
Published by BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, the book covers the role in-depth, giving an honest account of typical responsibilities, required skills, and relevant tools, methods and techniques.
Using real-life practical examples, Myers also gives a candid overview of what career progression looks like for a front-end developer. He even includes a typical day-in-the-life in-depth case study based on real experiences from working in the industry – with useful code snippets used throughout the book to illustrate the topics.
