What Sports Can Teach Us About government web developer jobs
- April 16, 2022
Government web developers have an extremely demanding job. In fact, many government web developers work in the IT field, and are required to become competent at all levels of the IT field. Due to their demanding nature, many government web developers typically work in government agencies, and in fact, many government web developers work for the government themselves.
In our government jobs we are required to be competent with technology, maintain IT systems, and be able to interact with the public. In terms of IT systems, we maintain our own web servers and work with our own team of tech support specialists to provide IT support to our users. In terms of interacting with the public, we work with the government to provide all sorts of services and information to the public.
Government web developers work for a budget. A government web developer’s budget is determined by what they are able to spend each month. So if a web developer’s web hosting service goes broke, it’s not a big deal for the government to cut off that web hosting service and replace it with something else. A government web developer is only paid for work done and that is not always done in our current job.
We are the government. We provide services to the public. That is our job. The government web developers we work with are paid by the government to do so. They are not doing our jobs for free. That is not a given.
The internet is a huge source of government information. A government web developer is a key cog in the government’s information system. As such, they should be given the responsibility and responsibility to improve government websites. That responsibility should be a given even if they are paid to do so. They should be doing their job with a sense of urgency.
At the same time, government web developers should be given the responsibility to do the exact same job they are paid to do. Some web developers are more skilled at what they do, but they are still not always experienced enough to be able to do the job for which they are paid, and that is not to say that they should not be given the opportunity to learn.
Unfortunately, there are many government web developers who are not very experienced with web development and often times don’t have enough experience to even understand the basics of web development. They often do their job but not do it right, or do it wrong and cause harm to others. Many are more interested in doing what they are paid to do than learning how to do it right. They are often not too concerned with how their website looks. This isn’t a bad thing.
I was recently given a chance to work on a government web app for the National Park Service. There are some pretty bright people working with me, and I like the chance to help them on the project, but I also found myself with the responsibility and the need to actually learn how to code. I am more than pleased to say that my ability to add and change functionality has made me a pretty adept web developer.
Government web development is more about the process than the product, and one of the more interesting ways to learn how code works is web app development. The best way to learn about web app programming is to learn to code for an actual web app. The National Park Service has a few that they can recommend to you for a low-cost web app project.
