Role, missions and capabilities to meet business needs

A complete and versatile role with varied missions

The web developer profession is one of those professions that creates some tension in the job market, with more companies looking for specialized profiles than available candidates. They need more and more experts in this field to support them in their digital projects: from developing a presentation page to promote their activities, to designing an online store to sell their products and services, to updating Web and mobile applications.

If he can specialize in backend (technical and functional side of the website), frontend (user interface side) or both (full stack) and/or in a specific technology (JavaScript, Python, PHP…), the role of web developer is complete and versatile with multiple tasks to perform.

Its main tasks are the integration of models created by a designer. This means that we replicate the model using the standard HTML and CSS languages, each of which is used to bring content onto a page and add style to that content, explains Laurent, trainer at Oh o’clock.

Along with his other duties, the web developer may need to manage various data coming from different sources. The aim: for example to create statistics or make a page interactive. ” This work is not visible in the browser and is done on the server using other technologies, among which we find databases ‘ adds the coach.

Yacine Sinapayen is a web developer in training at O’clock and in a dual study program at LearnyLib. His position, front-end oriented on React technology and with IT project management, leads him to combine this dual role as web application developer and designer. The working student fulfills many varied and exciting tasks every day (75% development and 25% project management), such as:

  • Development, maintenance and iteration of the part of the web user interface,
  • development of data access components and business components,
  • design the frontend,
  • Qualify the needs of internal teams and write functional specifications,
  • Manage Sprints.

Necessary technical skills and ability to adapt to all environments

According to the O’clock school trainer, the web developer must master 3 pillars that allow him to create a website or a web application, namely: HTML for the content, CSS for the style and the JavaScript programming language to create pages dynamically (animations , change). Other technical skills are also required for this position, such as: B. Knowledge of a server language (PHP, Java, JavaScript with Node.js), because ” They are used to interpret requests sent by browsers like Firefox or Chrome and choose the right content to send to the user “.

The web developer must also be able to manage various data. ” For this we mostly use relational databases (PostgreSQL, MySQL), which can be queried using the SQL language. As experience and digital projects progress, the web developer can also expand their skills by learning other technologies and specializing in languages ​​specific to their business or according to their appetite.

On the soft skills side, autonomy and versatility are human traits that offer him the opportunity to differentiate himself from other candidates. The trainer adds: “Knowing how to communicate is an essential quality of a good developer, because he has to be able to explain his problems and solutions to non-technical people “. Likewise, adaptability is a human trait that is also essential to succeed in this ever-evolving field that requires the management of numerous projects and different technologies.

A developer must be able to carry out different and varied tasks, work on several applications at the same time, but also be able to argue about the choice of technologies, organization and architecture of his team and accept that their solutions are not unconditionally are accepted.

You quickly learn to see what works best depending on the environment, projects and technology used. I was lucky enough to benefit from this freedom to try it and today it has allowed me to reach a level that I would never have reached if I had followed an introductory course, emphasizes Yacine Sinapayen.
