Website development can be classified as the actual writing of code and markup for a website, as opposed to website design which focuses on the visual aspect of a website. The development part of a website is looked at as the backend of a website, the code that is going on "behind the scenes". Web development can involve complicated web applications that access databases, talk to servers or communicate with/as social networks.


There are several popular languages and platforms that are used by website developers, namely Php, asp.net and Java. Popular database platforms that are used by web developers are MySQL (open source), SQL Server (developed by Microsoft) and Oracle. These technologies help advanced developers deliver certain complex web applications online instead of the user having to download software onto their computer locally. Software programs and other tools have been created specifically for website developers to help them develop top quality web applications.



Why It's Important

Website development is especially important when building a website because if a website is developed and coded poorly, then the functionality will not work and it will completely ruin the user experience. Development is the key to creating rich, interactive applications and the user experience depends on a working product.
