Web development has as tremendous influence in almost 90% industries. Almost all industries have been opting for e- platform thereby emphasizing on the better customer interface, transparency in service and wider data maintenance.

Who is a web developer: Web development is a technical aspect how a website is developed and hosted on the internet. Web development involves two parts- one who designs website and the other who links it to the internet by providing links to an interface. Web designing is making the design and thereby it’s static. Developers emphasize in linking with real-time data managers and thereby it makes dynamic.

How to be a web developer: Tech savvy people who want to become a part of historic developments opt for web developing careers. Basically, mobile applications, social and professional networking websites would all have been impossible without the technique of web development.

Let’s have a look at the steps involved in being a web developer:

  • Having coding knowledge is a must: Working knowledge of HTML and CSS is a must. HTML sets the structure of the website and CSS changes the style or way it looks. Apart from these, there is another language which is required to be learned. While you may layout the structure of a website by these technologies but it’s just the start.
  • Beyond the basics of scripting: Although the above-mentioned scripting language is just the start, next is to decide the type of website it’s going to be and the purpose of the website. If you want to start a commodity trading website like jewelry purchase you need to incorporate e-commerce platform, your client needs to be responsive to customer queries ( this occurs in the case of mobile applications ) all you need to know is media queries.

 

  • Becoming a master researcher: One great feature of becoming a researcher is to look for relevant info on the internet. You should know how to look for a specific info just by typing a phrase. One good starting point for HTML, CSS and JavaScript is the Mozilla developer network. If you are working on PHP, all you need to do is bookmark the manual. If you are customizing a word press and add widget on a part that you need to search for ‘add widgets’ in the widget able area. Start googling widget able area and this is the way you may have information at your fingertips.

 

  • Mastering adobe Photoshop: In order to give your website a great look you need to know adobe Photoshop. It’s a ubiquitous tool and you need to know for designing graphics. You may Google phrases like – learn adobe Photoshop, and get the hold of it. You may download an older version of adobe photoshop or get a 30-day free trial. Once you get the hold of photoshop, there are some additional requirements you need to know about your graphics.

 

 

  • Knowing your tools for development is important: The first thing you need to familiarize is the workplace and panels. One great technique you need to learn is how to work with layers. This will keep pieces of your graphics separate. If you can learn the ‘save for web’ technology then it will help you to cut down on image size and allow you to load faster.

 

  • Domains and hosting: Usually choosing a domain name is the client’s responsibility and to host you need to choose a package which is valid for certain years.

 

  • Knowing c panel is important: C- panel is a software brand that is installed by many software companies and let you manage your own website. By customizing C- panel you may manage certain aspects-addition of sub-domain, installation of word press, e-mail account set up and managing databases.

 

  • Using FTP software: By using FTP or file transfer protocol, you may transfer the files from your computer to website. You may find FTP software from the internet and download it. All you can do is to control the hostname/server name, FTP username, and FTP password. Having a sound foundation of the basics, you may figure out how to add a popup and other features.

 

  • Back-end development: While the front end development is comparatively easier, the back end is the real challenge. You need o use ruby, python, PHP and another server-side language to create applications and connect them to a database. It’s possible to learn the basic languages like- C, C+ and then jump to developed versions of Javascript and Oracle. Visual C++ will enhance your logic skills and you will get the ultimate cutting edge technology after learning applications like PHP.

 

The scopes of working after learning web development are enormous. You may develop applications for mobile or any other industry. The best part is to build your own portfolio and earn contracts sitting at home. The compensation in this industry is prodigious. So, make up your mind, learn web development skills and manage your career.
