How do the beautiful plans you have for a site become useable reality?

Even the most attractive plan for what a website should look like needs development. Development turns an idea for a website into reality.

What is web development?

Web development is the process of turning a design into a functional website. No matter how clean and attractive your website design is, without a developer, it will never become a functioning website. Web dev can vary from developing a single additional page for a website, to producing a whole new site from scratch. It can also refer to maintaining and hosting websites, as well as database management.

Web development is divided into two sides – front end and back end development. The front end is the part of the website that visitors interact with directly – otherwise known as the client side. The back end is the part of the website that users cannot interact with. It includes the database, and the frameworks.

Client Side

Client side development – or front end dev – is the art of using coding skills to create attractive, functional and useful websites. The client side is the part of the website that the user can interact with. Any element of a website that requires a user input is part of the purview of a front end developer. Client side developers work with HTML, CSS and Javascript to produce functionality from the framework of a design.

Server Side

The server side – or the back end – is the part of the website that the user cannot access or see, but that makes the website function. The back end developer puts together the technology that makes a website work, and then maintains that technology.
