The secret to earning is learning
For you to earn, figuring out the web development field you want to focus on is vital.
This will give you insightful facts describing web development, its fields, and effective learning resources you need to further your learning journey.
Here are its fields:
1. Front end development
This involves the development of the user interface (UI) of a website.
The UI is the part of the website the users can see, navigate through and interact with the website. This is built for the website to look dazzling and to provide a fulfilling user experience for the users.
We, humans, love things that are gorgeous and visually appealing to us.

I am not saying front end development is better than back end development, but the users - humans are enthralled by nice user interfaces that give amazing user experiences.
According to indeed.com, the average salary of a front end developer is $108,137 per year in the United States.

2. Back end development
It is also called server side development. It is concerned with development of the 'behind the scene' functionality of a website.
Most websites if not all, need to have functionalities like databases for storage, cloud functions, authentication and so on, based on the purpose of the website.
For example, if you are building a website like Instagram, you need a storage or database for storing and referring to the users' profile, storing the users' posts, and other statistical reports like how many likes a post has and so on.
Back end development works hand in hand with the front end to deliver the output to the end user.
The tech of back end is the combination of servers, applications and databases.
