What is web development?
Web development refers to the work done to develop a website for the Internet (World Wide Web) or an intranet (a private network). Web Development can range from developing a simple static page with plain text to complex web applications, e-commerce companies and social networking services. A more comprehensive list of tasks that web development usually refers to may include concepts such as web technology, web design, web content development, client connection, client / server side scripts, web server configuration and network security and e-commerce development.
Among web professionals, web development usually refers to the most important aspects of non-design of website building: writing selections and coding. Web development can use content management systems (CMS) to make content editing easier and accessible with basic technical skills.
An ever-growing set of tools and techniques has helped developers build more dynamic and interactive websites. Furthermore, web developers now help deliver applications as web services that were traditionally only available as applications on a desktop based computer. These cloud-based web services allow users to interact with applications from multiple locations, instead of being tied to a specific workstation for their application environment.
Examples of dramatic transformation in communication and commerce led by web development include e-commerce. Online auction sites have changed the way consumers find and buy goods and services. Online stores have changed the shopping and bargaining experience for many consumers. Another example of transformative communication led by web development is the blog. The increased use of open source management systems and the company's content management system has increased the impact that web development has on online interaction and communication.
Web development has also affected personal networking and marketing. Websites are no longer just tools for work or commerce, but serve a broader purpose for communication and social networking. Websites that we today call social media platforms provide users with a platform for communication and enable organizations to engage with the public in a more personal and interactive way.
What does a web developer do?
Web development or the work that a web developer performs, has the purpose of solving problems that can be simple or complex, which leads to the creation of products or services that others want to use. Therefore, one of the most important qualities for a web developer is to be solution-oriented with a strong understanding of logical processes. Another, however equally important aspect, is the ability to create a smooth user experience for the end user.
There are three types of web development specialization:
- front-end developer
- front-end developer
- full-stack developer
Front-end developers are responsible for the behavior and visualization that runs in the user's browser, which means the visibility of a website. Back-end developers manage the servers and underlying processes that enable the web solution to get rid of. A full-stack developer possesses a wide range of skills and can handle both sides of the system and is thus a completed senior software developer.
Web development for companies
Since the commercialization of the web, web development has been an industry that is growing at an enormous rate and is taking up more and more space in the market. The growth of the industry is driven by companies that want to use their website to advertise and sell products and services to customers, which creates more work for web developers but of course also provides more opportunities for companies to do their business more efficiently and reach a wider potential market.
For larger organizations and companies, web development teams can consist of hundreds of people (web developers) and follow standard methods such as Agile methods for developing websites. Smaller organizations working with less complex websites may only require an individual fixed or leased resource, which has a secondary task to related web development jobs, such as a graphic designer or information systems technician.
Regardless of which industry a company is active in, it has today become a matter of course that the company should have a website, in line with the modern saying . If you are not visible on the web, you are not there?A website enables potential customers to find a company more easily, as well as take advantage of the services that the company offers and get in touch with the company in most cases with a few simple clicks.
Some companies can base a large part of their business on solutions that web development offers. Then we talk about different web applications that can be, for example, booking applications, communication platforms or web portals where different types of data are stored and processed in order for several different stakeholders to take part in them in a smooth way.
E-commerce thanks to web development
There are also companies that base their entire business on a web solution which is then called an e-commerce platform. An e-commerce platform is like a store, but online, where the customer can see pictures and read product specifications, and easily buy one or more goods digitally. This usually entails large cost savings for the company in the form of non-rental and personnel costs. For the consumer, this means savings in the form of time that needs to be spent on visiting one or more physical stores. Smooth trading thanks to web development!
