Front-End Web Development and the Technical Writer

The web is huge and made up of many different components. There are so many different programming and scripting languages that a novice can become overwhelmed. It might be tempting for some technical writers – those not particularly well versed in computer programming – to become intimidated by the web and think that they should rely fully on programmers for the actual building of a website (specifically front-end development), but that is a mistake. All technical writers should care about and can learn front-end web development.
