Next Big Futures article The “Web design certification” is finally here.
This week, the United Nations released its annual report on web development certification.
And it includes an updated list of countries and countries regions.
The list of certifying nations includes the United States, Canada, Mexico, China, India, South Korea, the European Union, and Australia.
“The United States has become the world leader in the field of web design, with nearly 80 percent of web designers worldwide now having a degree in web design,” the report reads.
And while the United Kingdom and United States are the top countries for web design in the world, the report notes that some other countries have gotten worse, like Russia, China and India.
“As the world moves forward towards a new web, it is essential that the standards-setting body establish the broadest set of standards to ensure a robust and secure web,” said UN Secretary-General António Guterres, in announcing the report.
“Today’s report offers the world a new benchmark to measure progress in web development.”
Countries are also looking for new ways to help build and maintain the infrastructure that will support the web in the future.
A new initiative, called “World Wide Web Accessibility,” is aimed at developing standards for a digital standard that will enable websites to show and interact with people who are blind, visually impaired, and deaf.
In addition to the U.S. and China, other countries in the list include India, Japan, Mexico and New Zealand.
“We have the highest percentage of web accessibility users in the entire world,” said Chris Clark, a researcher at the UN’s web accessibility research center.
“But it’s a much smaller percentage than what we’ve seen in the United states.
It’s just a little bit lower, but it’s not as high as the U,S., or the UK.”
The U.K. was the first country to offer a “Web Accessibility Standard” in 2020.
It includes an opt-in option to enable people to download the Web Accessible Web Design Toolkit.
Clark says that this means people can get access to web content without the need to buy an expensive app.
“People can do it with a computer or a mobile device.
They can do the things that the app doesn’t do.
It provides a much simpler interface,” Clark told Next Big.
“It allows the web to be more accessible to people with disabilities, and that includes people who have visual disabilities.”
Clark believes that the Web Design Certificate will help people who want to start a business or develop an online presence to develop a well-rounded website.
“They can choose to use one of the various types of certifications that are available,” he said.
“What we’ve found, is that people are getting access to websites that they would not normally get access if they just used a computer.
They’re getting access in a way that’s more accessible than just using a web browser.”
The certification process is a two-year process.
But Clark says it’s still possible to become certified.
“This certification process can be done on your own.
You just need to follow the process,” he told Next B. “So you can be certified and you can do whatever you want with your site.
So there’s no need to be a full-time designer, or to have a professional web design firm.”
This certification program is still being developed.
And Clark says a lot more work needs to be done to ensure that the U of T students are prepared for this certification.
“If we want to do the next step to a Web Design Certification, we have to do it on our own,” he added.
“Because we have very little time to spend on this, it will take a long time for the UofT students to actually get certified.”
