In a field that’s as constantly-changing as tech, it’s important to make sure your team is kept up-to-date on relevant skills. So, here’s a look at six in-demand web development skills to look out for in 2023!
Structured Query Language (SQL)
If you’re dealing with a website, you’ll also need to deal with databases. SQL allows your team to do just that, so they can insert, search, update, and delete database records. Having this skill is key to maintaining and updating your site.
Search engine optimization (SEO)
Before going live, running multiple tests to ensure everything runs smoothly is a must, as is having the ability to debug any potential problems. Then, there’s always a chance things could break down the line — so your team will still need to be able to debug issues on the live site!
It’s a given that people visiting your website will do so on various screen sizes. Some might be viewing on a phone, while others on a desktop. So, your team will need to be able to create a site that can switch seamlessly between different dimensions. Otherwise, content may be lost or skewed, resulting in a less-than-stellar experience for the user.
Finally, as with any role in a company, interpersonal skills are in high demand. After all, your team will have to communicate not only with each other, but also with other departments. Being able to work with others while both communicating ideas clearly and understanding others is a necessity!
