Web development broadly refers to the tasks associated with developing websites for hosting via intranet or internet. The web development process includes web design, web content development, client-side/server-side scripting and network security configuration, among other tasks.
A website is a collection of individual documents and files made up of text, graphics, colors, links, and formatting that come together to create a complete user experience. Websites are also usually associated with domain that explain to your computer where all of the files that are necessary to display a website are located.
Web designers and developers used to just make different versions of websites for different devices, but now that sites are viewable on desktop, laptop, smartphone, and tablet screens, there needs to be a way to build a single website that can display appropriately on each device.
Nowadays, web pages are considered more “dynamic,” since they’re capable of responding to user input in real time. Things like the ability to “favorite” social media posts or update the inventory in a shopping cart in an online shop are examples of dynamic content — they don’t require the browser to re-download the page to display changes.
The code is written in separate files that are downloaded alongside a site’s HTML documents when the browser visits a website. Both file types are capable of referencing each other’s content.
The language capable of providing much of this interactivity and responsiveness and it runs directly inside of the web browser. All modern web browsers are capable of interpreting the language.
The main advantage is Consistency
A single, responsive website offers people a consistent experience across all their devices. Navigation and features may look different on different-sized screens, but they’re easy to recognize and offer the same functionality. That means if someone usually uses a site on their laptop, they won’t have to hunt things down if they need to do something on their phone.
