How to Become a Web Developer

What is a Web Developer?

A common misconception about web development is that it is an easy task – anybody can do it, right? Well, this is simply not true. The simplest processes – from buttons, to images, to animation – can sometimes require hours to properly code. Web Development can be seen as an art form, as even the most straightforward-looking websites can take the most time, skill and patience to execute.

In terms of responsibilities, a Web Developer is essentially required to build the foundations of a website and be responsible for how the site functions by constructing the framework with HTML, CSS and JavaScript. Although primarily a desk job, you’ll still have the opportunity to meet clients in order to understand and implement their plans and work with them throughout the development.

How Personal Trainers can Beat the New Year Drop

January can be a great month for picking up new clients, giving your personal training business a welcome surge of income. However, once the excitement of the New Year has worn off, you need to have a strategy in place to ensure you retain as many of those new clients as possible, otherwise you’ll be back to square one!
 
People who start new fitness regimes in January tend to have an “all or nothing” mindset. They want results fast. Preferable by February. And when they don’t quite achieve what they set out to do, they quit. Resigned to the fact that most New Year’s resolutions fail anyway. For a Personal Trainer (PT), this presents a real challenge. But keeping hold of your new clients beyond the January boom, isn’t mission impossible. It can be achieved by following a few simple steps, which I’ll now share with you.
