When can I call myself a web developer? | New Method

I was thrilled to come across this information. Since all job openings for Web Developers seem to have different, and often very specific, requirements, I was never sure what the definition of “Web Developer” was. This seems to be the most logical, and accurate according to my experience.

A web developer should be able to:

  • wireframe/layout a website or web application
  • write HTML and CSS from scratch
  • take a PSD and turn it into a working website
  • add interactivity to a website with JavaScript (or jQuery)
  • write a basic application in an object-oriented programming language like Ruby or Python or PHP
  • work comfortably with a version control system like Git
  • manage a domain’s DNS settings
  • deploy a website to a website host
