Career Outlook:
The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects about 20 percent employment growth for Web developers by 2022. During that period, about 28,500 new jobs will need to be filled in an industry that already has roughly 141,400 positions.

The expansion of e-commerce is expected to be the main driver of Web developer job growth in the next decade. As more companies offer or expand their online retail presence, more Web developers will be needed to build the websites visited by consumers to purchase their favorite products. Increased reliance on mobile search is another reason the industry's employment growth should remain strong.

Student Testimonials:

He was keen to make sure everyone was on-track and he didn't have a pre-disposed position on what the class may/may-not have already known which I found especially compelling." - Former Student
