What Is Website Development And Why Do You Need It?
Website development encompasses all of the tools and techniques that a skilled programmer uses to create and build dynamic web applications. This multi-pronged process includes web design, publishing, coding, maintenance, and database management.
Website design usually refers to the user experience (UX) elements of website development rather than software development. Website design includes the appearance, layout, and sometimes content of a website. Strong web design is simple and intuitive to use, aesthetically pleasing, is consistent with company/product branding, and appeals to the target demographics.
Web publishing, also known as “online publishing,” simply means publishing content on the Internet. It may include creating, uploading, and updating web pages as well as posting blogs. The published content may include text, images, videos, and various other media.
Arguably, the most important skill in website development is programming, which requires the programmer to have a thorough understanding of coding and languages and to follow current trends and other factors. Website development requires the ability to generate an HTML file and create a CSS file, manipulate layouts and styles, follow industry conventions and trends, conduct research, and have knowledge of one or more coding languages.
Website maintenance refers to regularly testing your website for errors and problems, and keeping it relevant and updated. This must be done consistently in order to keep your website healthy, encourage new traffic, and strengthen your SEO and search engine ranking position (SERP.)
Database management is manipulating and controlling data to meet needed conditions throughout the entire data lifecycle. A database management task is any task that protects data, prevents legal and compliance risk, and keeps data-driven applications performing optimally. This includes monitoring and fine-tuning performance, planning for capacity and storage, backup and recovery, archiving data, partitioning data, replication, masking, and retirement.
