Must have skill for Web Developer

6 Sep
It’s hard to know where web development will go in  next 5 years, but those who follow standards bodies or at least read tech blogs have a much better understanding of upcoming changes and growing trends.It’s not enough to follow the industry. Web developers must also understand their users and how they use the product. Analytics tools like StatCounter and Google Analytics and Clicky are my favorites for gathering basic metrics of user interactions.

 

1: One of the “Big Three” (.NET, Java, PHP)

Unless there is a radical change 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. It’s not enough to know the core languages, either. As projects encompass more and more disparate functionality, you’ll need to know the associated frameworks and libraries more deeply.

2: Web development

Web development is not going away anytime soon.  Companies have been demanding more and more who really know how to work with the underlying technology at a “hand code” level. So bone up on JavaScript, CSS, and HTML to succeed over the next five years.Web developers must be able to code. This is supposed to sound obvious. An effective web developer must be able to write syntactically valid HTML, CSS, and even JavaScript.

3: Soft skills

Soft Skill is must for  every developer.They are being brought into more and more non-development meetings and processes to provide feedback. For example, the CFO can’t change the accounting rules without working with IT to update the systems. Writing code is not the only thing that a developer should know, he/she should be able to present what ever they have written.

4: Agile methodologies

Many small companies are either adopting Agile or running proof-of-concept experiments with Agile. While Agile is not the ultimate panacea for project failure, it does indeed have a place on many projects. Developers with a proven track record of understanding and succeeding in Agile environments will be in increasingly high demand over the next few years. Few people thinks that it is only for project managers but they are not true. This is one of the important skill that every developer should learn.

5: Domain knowledge

Hand-in-hand with Agile methodologies, development teams are increasingly being viewed as partners in the definition of projects. This means that developers who understand the problem domain are able to contribute to the project in a highly visible, valuable way. As much as many developers resist the idea of having to know anything about the problem domain at all, it is undeniable that increasing numbers of organizations prefer (if not require) developers to at least understand the basics.

6: Testing

All web developers must be able to test their code in multiple browsers. It’s easy to test for our own personal browser of choice and ignore the rest, but the web is about diversity and the browser landscape is very diverse.

JavaScript testing also falls under this category. Developers must use tools to detect and debug scripting errors. Chrome, Safari, and Internet Explorer all come with built-in developer tools that allow you to step through JavaScript and execute code in an interactive console.
If you are going to write code, you must be prepared to make sure that it works.
