Frequently Asked Questions

Why become a Web Developer?

Everyone has their own reason(s) as to why they want to become a Web Developer. But here are a few of the best reasons:

  1. Lots of jobs available. As we're writing this, there are over 64,000 Web Developer jobs available on Glassdoor (not to mention Linkedin, Indeed or elsewhere). And it isn't going to slow down. From 2019-2029, Web Developer job growth is projected to be 8% (vs. ~4% for all jobs). More demand for technology means more demand for developers.
  2. High demand = High salary. The average annual salary for a Web Developer in the United States is over $75,000 across all levels (entry-level to senior).
  3. No degree required. It's very possible to get hired as a Web Developer without having any college degree. You definitely do not need a Computer Science degree to be a Web Developer.
  4. Work remotely. Many web development jobs (freelance or full-time) are remote. Work from the comfort of your own home, a coffee shop or even while travelling the world. Some roles even allow you to work on your own schedule.
  5. It's fun. And rewarding. You get to have a real-world impact. The work you're doing on a daily basis can have a huge impact on hundreds, thousands, or even millions of people. You also get fast feedback loops on your work. Within minutes you can make a change to a website or app and your Mom could see it live in the real-world. How cool is that!

How long does it take to become a Web Developer?

Honestly, it varies.

If you're trying to learn everything on your own, then it can literally take years. Mainly because you don't know exactly what you need to learn for the job or why. Should you learn one topic or another? If both, then which should you learn first? Etc.

Not only that, but you don't have a logical path to follow, so it spirals out and takes much longer.

That's why the fastest way is to follow a set career path or roadmap, like the ones we share here at ZTM.

This way you can simply work through the roadmap, learn the correct things in the right order, and learn everything you need to be hired.

However, even with this in place, the time frame can vary, depending on how much time you can spend learning each week.

Don't hold us to it but here's a rough guideline based on feedback we've received from past ZTM students on how long it takes to become a Web Developer (when following our career path):

  1. 20-40 hours a week = 4-6 months. Students who have started from scratch as complete beginners (no matter their age!) and spend a few hours per day.
  2. 40-80 hours a week = 2-3 months. Students who are able to learn basically full-time and/or already have some experience (ex: CS students / Coding Bootcamp grads).
  3. 0-10 hours a week = 7-12+ months. Students from all experience levels but are only able to dedicate a few hours a week.

How to become a Web Developer?

In simple terms, you:

  • Learn the correct topics, languages, and frameworks
  • Build projects for a portfolio
  • Apply for jobs

Obviously there's a lot more details that just this, which is why we cover the exact steps to become a Web Developer in this guide here.
