Web Development for Beginners

Web development consists of tasks for developing websites to host on the Internet. The development process includes design, content development, client-side/server-side scripting, and network configuration. There are a few important pieces of information that can be helpful to get started with design and content development.

Understanding the Language

When a web site or application is under development, there are some fundamentals to know and follow. Web development covers a range of programming languages and markup scripting. Understanding the syntax for programming languages in web design is not as challenging as they may look. Most of the time, there are prebuilt tools to easily drag and drop that is already built to give a higher level add-on to the language. For example, WordPress has an easy-to-use platform to create or edit web pages.

Getting Technical

HTML, or hypertext markup language, is the backbone of many web sites and applications. This markup language is the foundation for almost every website on the internet. CSS, or cascading stylesheet, is the visual overhaul that HTML can use to stylize elements on the page or add effects to images or lines of text. JS, or JavaScript, is the metaphorical “engine” that many websites use to create functions that get the wheels turning. For example, use JS to create interactive maps and advanced graphics.
