Web Development Introduction
When talking about web development, you may have heard the term “coding” and it refers to the code written for a website function. These codes are directed toward the two main broad divisions of web development, and are both important for the industry.
Back-end development is a bit more tricky, but still very important none-the-less. Back-end development is more about what is done behind-the-scenes of a website. This type of coding usually will have to do with the CMS (content management system) functions, and any type of automation for the website. The back-end, also reffered to as the “server-side”, is responsible for the platform’s ability to store data, and input new data. So that means every time you’ve filled out a contact form, or purchased an item, the website’s CMS is also communicating with the server and storing that data.
In order to communicate with the server side, the developer has to use programming languages like Ruby, PHP, Java, Python and .NET.
Now that you know the two basic divisions of web development, you may be able to see what it is you will need help with creating in order to build the web site of your dreams. If you still have questions, give us a call for your free consultation.
