Recognizing the need for skilled developers, the Web Development Specialist program provides a platform to produce skilled developers with the ability to take into account the client s needs and vision along with the target market to create a website and accompanying mobile applications. Alongside these technical requirements, web developers must also be abreast of prevailing social media trends, search engine optimization strategies and other techniques to stand up an effective website. After completing the courses pulled together in the Web Development Specialist program, students will have the skills necessary to be successful in a development position right from the start.Students who complete this program will also be prepared to sit for the Oracle Java Associate Certification exam which broadens individual knowledge and deepens skills through exposure to a wide array of important features, functions and tasks in the area of Java Programming. Students preparing for these certification exams will work through hands-on exercises and labs using real Java code, which expands students capabilities as a Java developer. Additionally, the certification exams validate students capabilities using real-world, scenario-based questions that assess and challenge students ability to perform as experienced web developers.
Professional web developers work to build and maintain high-end websites for a multitude of clients. Specialists who work in this field are not just webmasters, but rather have the technical capability to write custom scripts that will accommodate clients needs. Web developers require professional training and experience working in different programming codes, and scripting languages. In most cases, a web developer builds a website from scratch, often designing everything from the home page to the overall site layout and function. This combination of skills is universal for all developers working on a number of platforms and allows them to translate their abilities in a variety of ways whether leading a team of developers to create innovative and effective web solutions for large enterprises or working directly with small businesses to increase their presence online and gain more business from their web presence overall. Java Certification for web developers is particularly important in this field as over 30,000 Java Developers per year become certified on Java in order to improve their job prospects, earn more money and become more valuable employees.
