Web development is a term that refers to developing websites and web application that runs on the Internet. These websites and web applications are accessed through the web browsers. IT Training Nepal provides web development training for candidates who want to build a career as a web developer. Web developer can start a career in different platforms like PHP, ASP.NET, jsp and so on.
The complete process of web development includes the following set of development activities that are done in different phases.
This is the first phase of web development and one of the most important of all. It is because when a client approaches the web developer for the development of the website or web application, the first thing that the developer has to show is the “design”. Web design is widely done with the help of designing tool called Photoshop, Fireworks. Using Photoshop, web designers design a mock up (an image file) which is basically the look and feel of the website. After the client finalizes on the design, only then the developer moves ahead to the next phase. The output of the first phase of web development is an image called "PSD File".
The above two phases are commonly known as "web designing".
Converting static website to dynamic website is the most important and the most time consuming part of web development. Static website is not fully interactive i.e. the content of the website cannot be changed unless we manually change the content in the file where the code also lies. But this is a very difficult task for the non technical person. Even a slight error while editing the content can make the website look ugly. So the web developer has to develop the website in a manner that even the non-technical person can easily modify each and every piece of information on the website without editing the coded file. The activity of converting the static website into dynamic website is called Web Programming. One needs to have knowledge of programming languages like PHP (Hypertext Preprocessor) in order to develop a dynamic website. Using PHP Programming Language, a content management website can be developed. A content management website (CMS) makes it very simple to change each and every piece of information on the website. Most Web Professionals prefers to call this phase the actual web development. The output of this phase is a "dynamic Website" or a "web application".
You can develop dynamic websites or web application using custom PHP programming or by using any Content Management Frameworks or any other PHP Frameworks.
Developing the website or web application through custom programming can sometimes be very time consuming. Therefore before starting to write codes in PHP, web developers need to identify technologies that provide rapid application development. There are many CMS technologies like Joomla, Drupal, Word Press, Magento, e107 and others through which one can develop hundred or thousand pages websites without having to write a single line of code. Moreover, the web developers choose specific CMS technology depending upon the nature of website or web application they needed to develop. For instance, if an e-commerce website is to be developed, web developers would perhaps choose Magento CMS. Likewise, web developers would less prefer to develop a custom blogging website when they can configure a blog with Word Press.
There are also other PHP Frameworks through which programmers can develop web applications in a very fast approach such as Code Igniter, Symphony, and Cake PHP. PHP Programmers should have working knowledge of these frameworks because they may need to work in any PHP environment in their professional career.
Finally after the website is developed and deployed the most important thing is that the website needs to generate business. Search engine optimization is another vital thing to be considered. SEO is not the final stage of web development. It starts right from the first line of HTML coding followed by best coding practices, quality content writing and formulation and other analytical approaches that makes it SERP friendly.
