The world of tech is ever-evolving, and there is a lot of cross-team collaboration required for many digital projects. Whether a team is working on an e-commerce website, an app, or a new piece of software, there will generally be a lot of information exchange required. Depending on the type of website or software that a developer is working on, they will need insights and information in order to build and maintain it. And, that's where a data analyst comes in. Whether it's measuring the search volume of keywords, analyzing the number of website visits in a given month, or examining reasons behind the bounce rate, the ways in which web developers work with data analysts varies from project to project. Data analysts may work with any team members in a company and provide information relating to different aspects of the business. They set up and work with programs and tools to pull data and produce reports. They then share their insights with relevant teams all across the business. For a web developer, factors such as website traffic and user behavior while on-site are important. These are the types of things they will consult an analyst for.

Anyone working in the digital or tech industries needs to prioritize their tasks. Depending on ongoing projects, goals, and deadlines, there will be some degree of planning and prioritization required. In the case of web developers, the most important tasks are usually the most urgent ones, or the ones that are due the soonest. Whether it's completing a new landing page by a deadline or migrating an entire website to a new host, developers generally work towards deadlines and will prioritize based on those. At the same time, issues, errors, and problems may arise throughout the working week, and a web developer will need to decide on how to approach those. It is not uncommon for daily tasks to get pushed aside in order to deal with an issue or ticket.
