Web Design & Development Competition
Web Design and Development requires such a wide variety of skills that it is difficult for one person to excel in all aspects and as a result often a team of professionals will cover the entire process. Web Design and Development involves implementing solutions that fulfill objectives outlined by a client. Web Designers convert a client’s requirements into website specifications.
The WorldSkills Australia Web Design and Development Competition tests skills in an online environment. Competitors are given a case study and the requirements of a system and have to come up with a solution.
