To start with, web development is the building and the maintenance of websites. Who is a web developer? A web developer is someone that builds and maintains a website, of course.
The web development field is one of the hottest and most common fields in software development right now. It is, because people need websites for their businesses to thrive and be well known. Bill Gates said, “If your business is not on the internet, your business will run out of business”. I concur to that because it is very true and evidential presently.
There are three kinds of web development specialization:
- Front end development
- Back end development
- Full stack development
In this article, I will write expressly on Front end development.
Front end development: According to Wikipedia, front end development involves the building of behaviors and visuals that run in the user’s browser. In other words, it entails the building of what the user sees on the browser when he/she visits the site.
HTML: It stands for Hypertext Markup Language. HTML is the technology used in structuring, building a web page. In other words, it is the building block of a website. It writes the paragraph you see in a post, the heading you see on websites. Texts, images, videos are all done by this language. It makes use of tags. The <p></p> tag is used to write a paragraph for example.
CSS: It stands for CASCADING STYLESHEETS. This is the technology responsible for the beauty of a web page. It beautifies the texts, images, does correct positioning in a website. It also helps in setting font sizes, font families, colors, etc
Are you in awe of the web and want to play around these technologies. Do you wanna be able to build a website? Why not start to learn these technologies?.
