Web Developer


One million computer programming jobs are estimated to be created in the U.S. by 2020 - as well as 700,000 in Europe - thanks to unprecedented growth in the tech sector.

Here at OpenClassrooms, we pinpoint the key skills needed for the most in-demand jobs and develop courses and diplomas to train our students in those areas. That’s why we've developed this six-month associate's-level diploma in web development, which you can complete entirely online with the help of a dedicated mentor. 

What will I do as a Web Developer?

Web developers are a fundamental part of any tech team. As entry-level developers, they bring to life the mockups created by UX designers. They translate these graphic recommendations into web languages by writing HTML, CSS, and JavaScript code. They are often in charge of:

  • translating graphical mock-ups into web pages in HTML and CSS
  • integrating text, image, animation, video, and sound content on the web
  • optimizing the performance and compliance of web pages
  • establishing communication between the interface and server with JavaScript 
  • developing simple web applications from user requirements specifications

How much will I earn?

Web development can be a lucrative career with many prospects opening up as you continue to rack up valuable experience. Here is what you can expect to earn in your career as a web developer, followed by your economic opportunities as you evolve in your web development career.
