What is Front-End Web Development?
Everything that you interact with when you’re on a website, from fonts and colors to drop-down menus, make up what’s known as the ‘front-end’. Front-end developers create how a website or app looks, working closely with both designers and back-end developers. Ongoing, they write and maintain a website’s user-facing code, optimise page loading time and oversee the architecture to ensure the best user experience possible.
Why study Front-End Web Development?
Did you know that Web Developers are one of the most in-demand roles that Australian IT Managers are struggling to fill? COVID-19 demonstrated how vital technology has become to most organisations. As companies continue to modernise through digital transformation and require countless websites and digital services, the demand for people with web development skills has skyrocketed and will only continue to do so.
Increasing steadily across all industries, the number of web development roles in Australia is set to grow 9.2% by 2024.*
And if it’s job security you’re after, you will be pleased to know that a healthy 57% increase in permanent staff roles across I.T specialisms in Australia is forecast for the next financial year (21-22).**
