    Web Designer Skills

    hey folks,
    i wanted to know what are the most demanding skills a web designer should have. is the web designer and web developer same? coz i m a developer, mostly i work freelance and project based on designing in photoshop, html, css or jQuery (little), its been a little time since i been into it but i wanted to enchance my skills, many times i find myself working/fixing someone else code which has php and ajax and as i know little php, some folks really work bad and that got me thinking should learning php be a mandatory. ? not only php i wanna know which are most wanted skills a web designer/developer should have?

    most demanding skills (most difficult) =
    IMO,
    expert-level general security,
    encryption,
    'expert-level' regular expressions usage,
    database security,
    network security, etc.

    most wanted skills
    I currently know more about what is difficult, security is also a high-paying field*
    *but many corporate jobs still require Microsoft knowledge, not Open-source.

    You will find many opportunities in every area; I've been studying security & encryption lately.
    Have fun!

    I wouldn't say that PHP is a mandatory subject, if you work specifically in the client-side and your website is simple, you can do the job without it.

    As for essential skills, there's no one subject which is vital, there's a multitude of languages like HTML, CSS and a knowledge of design that is essential.
