My take on Web Development

Having participated for few months in coding contests, I felt a need to switch, to learn a skill which would help me in bringing a difference to the lives of people. After giving a lot of thought to both Mobile App and Web Development, I went with the latter.

There are currently 3 billion people who have access to the INTERNET, it is almost 40% of the World’s total population, hence web is the closest you can get to the remotest of beings. If you can produce a web app that eases the lives of the people, the impact could be global. It’s fascinating, the power of INTERNET, without losing the place you are seated on, you can contribute to the development of your favorite programming language, the only prerequisite is a will to learn, with the help of the World Wide Web, millions of people, use MOOC to enhance their skills, daily. Websites like Github, LinkedIn act as  breeding platforms for the technologies of tomorrow. If you have useful content on your website, you’ll get the audience.

Tons of connections, a higher degree of satisfaction and a way to become a part of a project that could make lives of billions better, if that’s what you are looking for, Web Development is a great choice.
