Introduction to web development - This article is part of a series.
Web development is the process of creating websites and web applications that you see and interact with on the internet. Websites can be used for many things, such as sharing information, buying and selling products, or connecting with other people.
To create a website, web developers use different computer languages and tools to write instructions that tell the website what to look like and how it should work. Just like a cookbook has recipes to create different dishes, web developers use code to create different parts of the website, such as the text, images, and buttons.
Front-end vs. back-end development #
There are different types of web development. Front-end development involves creating the parts of the website that you can see and interact with, such as buttons and menus. Back-end development involves creating the parts of the website that you can’t see, such as databases and servers that store and manage information.
Web development can be a fun and rewarding field to work in, and it’s something that anyone can learn with practice and patience. With the right tools and resources, you can start building your own websites and web applications, and share your creations with the world!
