There is often confusion around what exactly web design and development are and that they’re two separate roles. Find out why in this video! Please remember to subscribe

Not all web designers know how to build the sites they design, and not all web developers know how to design sites well in order to build them; and that’s okay! While some people are able to do both, they are different skillsets, and each is a perfectly valid and important role on its own. I hope this video helps to demystify the difference between them, and explains why it’s okay to focus only on one.

My videos no longer have pre-roll ads because I think ads are annoying. That means you don’t have to sit through ads, and it also means I don’t earn anything from the content I put on YouTube. If you want to support me and my channel the best thing you can do is order something from my online store! I make t-shirts and printed products and you’re bound to find something you like 🙂
