Best Course Studies in Computer Science 2017. Dans le cadre de projets Internet, le développeur web est en charge d’un vaste travail qui s’étend de l’analyse des besoins du client à la réalisation de l’architecture finale, en passant par les choix techniques stratégiques. Il travaille le plus souvent en équipe sous la direction d’un chef de projet et à partir d’un cahier des charges. Alors que les terminaux mobiles vont bientôt devenir les principaux terminaux d’accès à l’Internet, le web développeur doit intégrer une nouvelle approche du partage des données et des contraintes qui en résultent. Ses compétences s’articulent autour de trois pôles : le développement d’applicatifs web à proprement parler (le middleware en architecture trois-tiers), la modélisation du réel et la création de bases de données, l’intégration multimedia (à partir d’une interface réalisée le plus souvent par un web designer). Mais à l’heure du Web 2.0, le web développeur se trouve de plus en plus amené à étendre sa sphère d’intervention jusque dans l’interaction avec l’utilisateur à travers le package technologique Ajax.
