A web developer is a programmer who specializes in, or is specifically engaged in, the development of World Wide Web applications using a client–server model. The applications typically use HTML, CSS and JavaScript in the client, PHP, ASP.NET (C#), Python, Node.js, Go or Java in the server, and http for communications between client and server. A web developer may specialize in client-side applications (front-end developer), server-side applications (back-end developer), or both (full-stack developer). A web content management system may be used to develop and maintain web applications.

There are no formal educational or license requirements to become a web developer. However, many colleges and trade schools offer coursework in web development. There are also many tutorials and articles which teach web development, freely available on the web – for example, on Basic JavaScript.

Even though there are no formal requirements, web development projects require web developers to have advanced knowledge and skills such as:

HTML/XHTML, CSS, JavaScript and jQuery[1] Server/client side architecture like all or some of the above mentioned
Programming/coding/scripting in one of the many server-side languages or frameworks (e.g., Perl, Python, Ruby, PHP, Go, CFML – ColdFusion, Java, ASP, ASP.NET, Node.js)
Ability to utilize a database
Creating single page application with the use of front-end tools such as EmberJS,[2] ReactJS[3] or AngularJS[4]
