What is Web development?

Web development is a wide area of expertise, it is a term used to broadly define the work done or the back-end processes (the non-design process) involved in website creation i.e. coding and interactions. It includes processes such as scripting/coding, content development, e-commerce, or search engine optimisation, to name a few. The process may range from a simple one page website to a full e-commerce website or social network.

Client-side scripting/coding, also known as front-end coding (HTML, Javascript or Flash), refers to the scripting that the user's browser (Firefox, Safari, Opera, Google Chrome or Internet Explorer) will execute to display a website. Server-side scripting/coding or back-end coding (PHP) refers to the script sent to the browser by the server. This script sent to the browser is displayed as HTML.

The coding or scripting of a website forms the structure and support for its contents. The contents in are essential in creating a dynamic, visually interesting and informative website. A lack of valuable content may result in a lifeless and non-engaging for users. The contents may include one or a combination of the following: text, graphics, sound and animations - to list the main and most common components.

Web developers focus on the functionality, programming and usability of a website and are experienced in scripting/coding languages such as PHP, Javascript and HTML. They generally specialise in both client-side coding as well as server-side coding - as defined above - and may also be trained and skilled in web design and SEO.
