Hello Dear,

 

You need to work on following skills for becoming a good web developer:-

 

1. Effective Communication Skills:-

 

Effective communication is one of those skills that can make or break you in any field, but it's especially important web design where communicating with a client, art director, or developer can dictate the success of a project. It is quite understandable that creative souls are not intuitively chatty in nature; However, when it comes to presenting yourself and selling your work, one has to be bold and clear in his communication with the client. You need to be able to speak intelligently about your design choices – why you chose them and how your design choice is the right one for their business. Also, a lot of small disputes can be resolved easily if you are good at communicating. So, communicate and communicate well, in order to survive and be successful.

 

2. Be Able to Sell Yourself:-

 

It’s a small world, and from a web designer’s perspective, it's also a jungle. Web designers face as many competitors as a forty-niner during the gold rush... and only the fittest will survive. In order to make yourself stand out from the competition, you need to let people know about yourself and your skills. Designers are usually humble in nature, however, when it comes to professional success, you’ll have to elbow your way to the top and mark your presence. There are a number of ways you can do so. Word of mouth marketing, social media marketing and even business card marketing can work well. However, if you prefer to sit back in your cozy chair and wait for the clients to know you and come to you, then you are doomed!

 

3. Plan Before You Design:-

 

While many designers approach projects with a "wait for inspiration to happen" kind of attitude, but the fact is that just a little bit of planning can help that inspiration come a lot more quickly. As such, it's important to plan and research well before going into the web designing process. Planning can be further divided into three parts:

  1. Researching about the client’s company
  2. Asking the client what he wants and expects from the web
  3. Pondering upon what his competitors are doing and the related industry trends.

It's extremely bad practice to use client side scripting (Javascript) to connect to a SQL database, you may as well just give hackers the password.

 

Database access should be done through server side scripting, for example PHP, Ruby or C#.

Hi Guys,

 

I am a developer and as per my experience there are the Most Important Skills a Web Developer need to maintain.

 

Here are those:

 

Empathy in Communication:Having the ability to understand how someone else feels. Its is an important skill to have wheather you are working with team or with clients. A short tempered person can't work with team for long time.
 
Time and Stress Management: Should be capable to understand how to effectively manage your time, prioritize tasks and take breaks. 
 
Perspective: Having perspective would help you to grow more than learning framework. 
 
Concepts of the Web: He should focus on learning JavaScript and Progressive Enhancement; Instead of learning jQuery, those things don’t change.
 
I hope this information would help you a lot.
 
Thanks and keep sharing  :spoton:
