The web development process includes web design, web content development, client-side/server-side scripting and network security configuration, among other tasks. Web development broadly refers to the tasks associated with developing websites for hosting via intranet or internet. Web development ranges from creating plain text pages to complex web-based applications, social network applications and electronic business applications. Among web professionals, "web development" usually refers to the main non-design aspects of building web sites: writing markup and coding. Web development may use content management systems (CMS) to make content changes easier and available with basic technical skills.
The web development hierarchy is as follows:
• Client-side coding
• Server-side coding
• Database technology
These days, because Web surfers are increasingly accessing the Internet via wireless devices, be they Wi-Fi- or Bluetooth-enabled computers, cell phones, or personal digital assistants, Web dev. professionals are increasingly facing the need to optimise the websites they run for wireless devices.
Web developers now help to deliver applications as web services which were traditionally only available as applications on a desk-based computer. This has allowed for many opportunities to decentralize information and media distribution. Examples can be seen with the rise of cloud services such as Adobe Creative Cloud, Drop box and Google Drive. These web services allow users to interact with applications from many locations, instead of being tied to a specific workstation for their application environment.
While there are several methods of creating websites, there is often a trade-off between simplicity and customisation. Therefore, most large businesses do not use content management systems, but instead have a dedicated Web development team that designs and maintains the company's website(s). Small organizations and individuals are more likely to choose a solution like Word Press that provides a basic website template and simplified editing tools.
The Project Phase in web development, is perhaps the phase that requires more time and consultations with the different actors, the coordinator in charge of the project must establish with them the actions to take, setting this in a strategic plan with deadlines of tasks on which will be based all team work.
It is convenient that this mother project be read and reviewed by each of the strategic departments of the company so that the birth of the product has unanimous consent.
