Web developers will end up learning less than a web programmer. There are also other things that have to be used such as different programming languages. Such programming languages that are needed would end up being various scripting languages such as javascript and php. Also, mainframe languages such as c++ are also used.

Besides the programming involved, there are other jobs as well that do not deal with programming. Such jobs would include tasks such as ensuring that the webtraffic that is coming through the websites is valid and not cyber attacks or bots. Also work with databases can also happen besides just programming the websites, which deals with the behind the scenes area of web programming.

Web designer jobs and information from the National Careers Service.
Jeff Hutchinson's insight:

Programming knowledge required would be the programming languages of HTML, CSS, JavaScript, as well as the .Net frameworks.  I will have to do various other jobs besides programming such as meeting and consulting with clients about websites that they would want.  This would involve showing them various designs that the customer could potentially have.  This allows the customer to not have to worry about the technicalities of the programming itself, rather what it would look like within the end result.

Self employment would give a very flexible schedule. However, working for an employer would result in a 40 hour work week, usually from Monday through Friday. However, extra work may be necessary when there are issues such as server problems.

Continuing education through certification is also something that is recommended. This is to keep skills sharp as programming is a changing and diverse topic. Online courses that provide certificates will provide education requirements and suggestions for continuing this field of interest.

There are also a number of skills that are also needed for the job besides programming. Logical skills that involve problem solving is vital as there are problems that can happen when developing websites. For actual site development creativity is required as well, as well as working with others and meeting due dates and deadlines.

They are also responsible for the site’s technical aspects, such as performance and capacity, which are measures of a website’s speed and how much traffic the site can handle. They also may create content for the site.

The education requirements for a degree regarding web design are usually an associates degree. However, there are some jobs that do require a bachelors degree. Continuing education and keeping up with new technology and changes in the programming field and aspect of web design is a must.

Most of the people who end up developing websites are full time workers. The highest salaries that were being payed for web development had been over one hundred thousand dollars. The lowest would end up being around thirty-three thousand dollars.

Although I already have experience within this, there is no experience required for most web developers for jobs. Since it is a growing field, experience can change, which is also why it is necessary to keep up with the education. There is job growth in this field that is expecting to increase as well.
