Development of a website for the Internet.
Web development is a broad term that encompasses all the activities involved in creating a website. From a single static page of plain text to complex web-based applications, social network services, or electronic businesses - all fall under the umbrella of web development.
Web developers are the architects of the web. They construct the tangible interface with which users interact on the internet. Web developers are typically categorized into two types:
Back-end Developers: They handle the server-side programming and work on the 'back' of the website, i.e., behind-the-scenes operations. They ensure that data or services requested by the front-end system or software are delivered through programmatic means. They work with languages like PHP, Ruby, Python, Java, and .Net to build applications, and tools like MySQL, Oracle, and SQL Server to find, save, or change data and serve it back to the user in front-end code.
The client-server model is a distributed application structure that partitions tasks or workloads between the providers of a resource or service, called servers, and service requesters, called clients. In the web development context, the client would be the browser on your computer (like Chrome, Firefox, or Safari) and the server is the computer where the website lives.
In the next units, we will delve deeper into HTML, the fundamental language used to create websites. We will learn about its syntax, tags, and elements, and how to use them to structure a web page.
