Web developers are largely self-taught. For web site development, they rely more on intuition and creativity than on skills gained from any formal training. However, web development has now grown into a blossoming career option and a full-fledged field in its own right. There is a need to develop educational programs to train web-developers so they can articulate their talents more completely and fruitfully. The various traits, skills, and knowledge that a web-developer must possess to be successful in this profession should be examined. In this paper, we postulate a model of the cognitive characteristics a web developer must have. We define these characteristics in terms of creativity, meaning construction, and problem solving. We then discuss a baseline study that we used as an initial test of our hypothetical model. Next, we report on the results of that study. Finally, we use this study and its initial results to provide a scope for future research.
