A Web Developer usually has a specialisation. This may be:

A Software Developer produces computer programmes that will become software or applications for smartphones and tablets. He uses computer development languages such as Python, C++ or Cobol.

Rigorous and precise, a freelance Developer must be fluent in English and have good listening skills, team spirit and a great ability to adapt. Curiosity is the skill most sought after in this group of professionals; it enables a Developer to increase the number of tools available to code solutions.

Although a freelance Developer is fully familiar with the IT field and web technologies, he needs regular training to keep his technical knowledge and skills up to date.

In which project is a Developer involved?

A developer can manage a project from design to production. He identifies the best technical solutions for the projects for which he is responsible and is in charge of writing the code.

A Developer may carry out this work wholly or in part in collaboration with other developers.
