We get lots of questions from university students working on projects — How do I get into web development? How long does it take to learn? How much do web developers make?
There are lots of different paths to become a web developer and there are many different web development roles. The most common path involves an undergraduate degree with a major or minor in computer information systems (CIS). Many schools have started offering more specific web development programs.
We believe that any basis of knowledge at the university level is good. However, the practical application of those skills will require individual effort on projects to enhance and grow those skills at a professional level. And the best place to learn is an environment where you are surrounded by other professionals. While working as a part of a team is the fastest way to grow your skills, self-learning is almost a necessity to stay up-to-date and continue to evolve.
We believe that working at an agency is a great way to learn! Many of our former employees who have gone on to incredible positions at large companies attribute their success to the fast-paced environment with talented peers.

1 What is the best programming language for web development?
If there was one “best” programming language, then everything else would be obsolete. The reality is that there are so many different programming languages because there is no “best” language for any situation.
Web development can vary from a few hundred to millions of dollars depending on what is needed. You may simply need some changes to something that already exists, or you'd like to build a large or complex application.
