Learners should examine their talents, past experience, and interests when deciding on a concentration area.

Professionals with visual or graphic design expertise; those who appreciate collaborating closely with digital designers and copywriters; those with good teamwork and client-facing abilities


Back-End Developer

The server portion of a website is programmed by back-end developers. To get information, they link the site to databases and application programming interfaces (APIs). Back-end developers are likewise concerned with performance and security.

Professionals with database or algorithm knowledge; those with excellent abstract thinking abilities; and those who appreciate working directly with database administrators and security professionals are ideal candidates.
