TELL US ABOUT WHAT YOU DO?

I create and maintain websites. My job is to create a website that is quick, easy to use, and built with best practices. I must also test the layout, functionality, and navigation of a website or interface for better usability. After creating a website, I need to make sure that the website is transferred to the specified domain and that the website is running without errors.

WHAT ABOUT YOUR WORK LIGHTS A FLAME WITHIN YOU?

Web development is like art. I enjoy bringing ideas to life. Every project I work on gives me the opportunity to express myself creatively on the Internet. I’m always happy to work on new projects because they offer new and different experiences. It’s always a daily learning experience when I’m working on a new project as I discover new ways to make my work experience easier and better. I work to make the web better, beautiful, accessible to everyone, and frustration-free.

WHAT ARE YOUR GOALS AS A WEB DEVELOPER?

My goal is to be a passionate, inspired, and creative developer who will know how to invent and innovate; also share and teach others in a way that they can be as excited as I am with web development. Most importantly my biggest goal as a developer is to never stop learning and sharing knowledge with other aspiring developers and inspiring other young people.

WHAT DOES THE FUTURE OF WEB LOOK LIKE TO YOU?

The evolution of web design or web development trends tends to sway towards making users or site visitors happy. Web technologies are always aiming to make the website easy and accessible to everyone easily. Website technologies have made it possible to chat to consultants through live chatbots, you can also take a tour through showrooms via 3D virtual tours, etc. The web has played a huge role in being eco-friendly. Cloud computing is becoming even larger compared to the past years as it is a more energy-efficient and eco-friendly way to store information.
