No matter how bad the economy worsens, there will always be work in certain booming fields of web development.
A skilled web developer is always in demand. Many new companies require well-programmed websites for their ideas and products. Older companies are quickly adopting new technologies and they are in constant need of someone with the skills and expertise to be able to develop their ideas into a beautiful website.
A good web developer will not be limited to one programming language. Being bilingual in business is just about as important as knowing several programming languages in the developer world.
Unless there is a radical shift in the development world, most developers will need to know at least one of the Big Three development systems — .NET (VB.NET or C#), Java, or PHP — for the near future.
Facebook has opened up its platform to allow developers API access, and the demand for social network apps has been huge since then. A whole new industry for web development grew overnight, and hundreds of applications are now added on a daily basis. The social media application platform has been found to be very viral and very lucrative.
Business web sites are always going to need ecommerce integration. Essentially, if you can take a language or framework and fuse it with a payment gateway like Paypal, you'll do well.
In today's difficult economy it is crucial for any web developer to be adaptable, efficient, flexible, creative and reliable. Pom Design's website designers are specialists in customised website design and online store solutions.
