What Is Web Designer and Web Development ?
Web designer is the most common term for professionals in this industry.
Oftentimes, when we say we are “web designers,” we refer to a very broad set
of skills—one of which is visual design.
Web development concerns with how a site looks and how the customers interact with it, including web usability and creating sites that are user-friendly encouraging interactivity for making the website so easy and intuitive to do so.
Web development comes in two flavors: Front-end development and back-end development. Some of the skills in these two flavors overlap, but they do have very different purposes in the web design profession.
A front-end developer takes the visual design of a website and builds it in code. A front-end developer uses HTML for the structure of the site, CSS to dictate the visual styles and layout, and perhaps even some Java script.
For some small sites, front-end development may be the only kind of development that is needed for that project. For more complex projects, “back-end” development will come into play.
Back-end development deals with more advanced programming and interactions on web pages. A back-end web developer focuses on how a site works and how the customers get things done on it using certain functionality.
This skill-set could include working with code that interfaces with a database or creating features like E-commerce shopping carts that connect to online payment processors and more.
