Why should you learn web programming in 2018?
A question that has so many answers. We live in a digital world, a world where everything evolves around the internet and websites. In two words: web programming. In today’s article you can learn about a couple of reasons why you should invest in web programming in 2018.
We’ve already tackled the topic of the online environment’s growth in Romania, especially in 2017. Only by taking a look at the statistics from Black Friday 2017 you can make a clearer image on the power that the internet has. And when you talk about the internet and online shops, you basically talk about web programming. Because nothing would exist without web programming. That’s why you need to invest in this field, because of two reasons:
1. For your own website
The world is continually changing, and this change is even more substantial within the online environment. That’s why the ability to be flexible when it comes to these changes is essential, in the fight against the stopwatch. Whether we are thinking about the capacity of quickly add a new product or service, or about quickly modifying an already existing product or service, you will need web programming knowledge. You, or someone from your team, given that you don’t externalize the maintenance service of the site. And if you do, you will entirely depend on the team that deals with the maintenance, so that they answer as fast as possible.
As, for instance, it would be quite a pity to have issues with your site or for it to entirely crash in peak moments, such as Black Friday, since we’ve already talked about it. We don’t want to make you believe that you have to know web programming so that you don’t need anyone else but it’s good to be aware of the basics of programming so that you can fix at least the minor issues. Although, if the entire website crashed during Black Friday, you’d better call some professionals.
2. For your clients’ site
In the world of online programming, you can either find yourself in scenario number one or scenario number two, as a programmer. The fact that any site requires programming, combined with the fact that not everyone knows/ wants/ is interested in or has time for programming, can make us realize that there is a huge market for these kind of services.
Actually, the field of IT is one of the most dynamic ones from Romania, currently (though you’re probably aware of this) and it’s one of the few fields where the number of requests exceeds that of the offers. As a matter of fact, the field of IT is constantly in the top of the best businesses that can be commenced with a small investment. A small investment with a huge rate of return, because here you usually pay for the service and the commercial excess is visible. Besides a laptop and some basic web programming knowledge you don’t need much more to get down to work.
I know that the topic of IT is quite a controversial one, at least in Romania, especially with the volatile political environment, but we have to see the huge potential of these businesses. Businesses are for anyone who is willing to learn and is willing to create sites for a living.
What does Digital Life Solutions bring into the world of IT to stand out from the rest of the competitors?
We’re already deep in here at this time, since we deal with everything regarding a site, starting with the web programming up to the maintenance and marketing. This is the reason why we decided to present this article, because we talk from our own experience, not just theory. Regardless if you need a presentation website or an online shop, we are always ready and we constantly improve ourselves in order to offer the best quality services. And the story goes on, since we offer optimization solutions for already existing sites, in order to offer your business the site it deserves.
What advice do we have for those who are curious about this field or for those who are at the beginning of their journey?
- First of all, there’s room for everyone. But just because there are many professional players in the field, it doesn’t mean that there’s enough of us. On the contrary, the field of IT is yet to grow. Actually, the lack of services is so acute that it lead to the appearance of informal schools of IT and many IT companies that offer paid internships just to have qualified personnel.
- Don’t be afraid to experiment. The field is wide and the learning resources are plenty (both paid for and free). Until you actually get down to read, inform yourself, you can’t really tell if this is right for you or not.
- Specialize in one branch of programming. We indeed offer complete services, but that’s because we’re a team. Each one of us is good at one specific branch. That’s why we recommend you to take a look at the branches of web programming and then decide which one suits you best, which programming language suits you best and so on.
We hope we made a convincing introduction in the world of web programming so that we stirred your curiosity. If you were to choose one of these three tips, which one would you find to be the most valuable? We are awaiting for your reply in the comment’s section.
