If you’ve decided that you wanted to have someone build a website for you, you may already know that you’ll need a web developer to make sure the technical side of your new website comes together smoothly.
Here’s a closer look at skills and talents your web person should have, so you can identify what you’re looking for and better understand what web-related skills that are needed to build the best site for you and your business.
What Is A Web Developer?
A web developer is a programmer who creates programs and applications for the Web. We can offer you this service. A web developer knows how to build a website from the bottom up. We can create custom codes to accommodate your unique needs, developing everything from the site layout to features and functions on the webpage.
What A Web Developer Does
Web development can be divided into three parts:
- Client-side scripting: which is code that executes in a web browser and what determines what your customers or clients will see when they land on your website.
- Server-side scripting: which is code that executes on a web server and powers the behind-the-scenes mechanics of how a website works.
- Database technology: which is what helps keep a website running smoothly.
A web developer is tasked with building a website from the ground up, using skills in one or more of these three areas. On a large-scale, web projects often divide these tasks among multiple web developers: one developer may focus on setting up the back end of a site while another focuses on the client side to add style and functionality to the website itself. The advantage of building a website from the ground up is that you can create something original that fits your specific needs.
