Internet is the medium that is fast replacing the other mediums as the only robust way of marketing and advertising and reaching out to the people that are the targeted audience. And more the businesses and the other entities vying for space in the imagination of the audience comprehend this fact the better it is for them. And in order to showcase yourself and what you are all about you need that thing called Website no matter whether it is a static single page website or a dynamic one requiring the use of complex internet technologies.
In the broadest sense of the term Web Development can be defined as the process of development of a website for the internet or the intranet. It entails in it the processes like web design, web content development, client liaison, client side/server side scripting, web server and network security configuration, along with the e-commerce development. In the technical parlance of the web developers the concept inculcates in it the non-design aspects like writing markup and coding.
Considering the web development as an industry it can be said that this is one of the fastest growing industries in the world. As compared to the mid 1990â€™s the industry is touching the mark of 30,000 companies and that too in the US alone.
The fuel in the fire has been added by the easy availability of the web development tools and platforms that have been made available to everybody involved in the art and craft of web development. For instance the LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) stack that is distributed without a penny being charged from the user. The other factor that has contributed to the rise of the web development industry is the rise of the easy to use WSIWYG web development software. Among these the most favorite are the Adobe Dream weaver, Net beans, WebDev, or the Microsoft expression studio, and Adobe flex. The knowledge of Hypertext Mark up Language (HTML) or other programming languages might not be needed other than for professional results.
The latest generation of web development tools has been boosted by the robust growth in the LAMP technologies, Java platform, Enterprise Edition technologies, and Microsoft .NET technologies providing the web as a way to run applications online.
The web development is basically categorized into web development hierarchy that is the client side coding, and the server side coding.
Keeping the technical aspects of the web development aside there are many things that go into the development of a website. As mentioned earlier the process also includes the web design as well as the web content development. But one thing that needs to be kept in mind while you hire professionals or a company for your web development process is that the people know what they are talking about and also at the same time know how to walk that talk.
