What is Web Design and Web Development?

Web Design means what we see on websites, determining what a website will look like or what it will look like in general. As a web designer, your job is to create a complete web site template. For example, what will be its layout? Inside the header section, where the menu will be, whether there will be a sidebar, how to display the images, etc. In other words, it is the job of the web designer to determine how the information will be displayed, regardless of what the website information will be and where it will be stored. And to determine this design you have to use some tools like PHOTOSHOP, GIMP, etc. and some markup and scripting languages like HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, etc. We can also call web designers’ front-end developers.

And web development is the lifeblood of a web site.

Web Development is the process of making every piece of design that a web designer makes functional and dynamic.

A web site can be divided into three parts such as design or template, content management system and database.

A web developer combines these three things to make the whole system active and dynamic.

The job of a web developer is to process data, control the database, build security, control the user and admin capabilities, make all the features of the application functional and dynamic, and control the functionality and usability of the entire system.

If you want to be a good web developer you need to have detailed knowledge about PHP, MySQL as well as HTML, CSS, JAVASCRIPT, JQUERY, Bootstrap.

What will you learn? Design? Or development?

In a word, if you are creative, if your choices are more beautiful than a thousand people, then you can do well in web designing. Otherwise it is better not to go that way. Because it takes one designer as opposed to one hundred developers in the market. This means that there is a lot of competition in the designing sector. On the other hand, to be a web developer, you don’t have to be so creative.

What are the qualifications of a web developer?

  • Personal skills are more important if you want to work as a web developer. In many cases, appointments are made on the basis of personal skills, even if they do not have educational qualifications. However, if you want to work as a web developer, the qualification is institutional, but usually someone with a bachelor’s degree in computer engineering is hired. In some cases you may be hired even if you have a diploma degree in computer engineering. In most cases, degrees in information technology or IT, computer engineering, telecommunication engineering are mentioned. In addition, in most cases, the degree mentioned in the recruitment circular is relaxed for recruitment based on old experience and thorough ideas and knowledge. In many cases, you will be hired based on your coding and programming concept, not just a specific subject but a bachelor’s or master’s degree. In this case, the subject is completely institutional and even if you do not have a degree in computer engineering, you can get a job. While most do not require a degree, in some cases a master’s degree in computer engineering may be mentioned.
  • Experience is important when working as a web developer. Minimum 1 year experience for recruitment is compulsory in most cases. In some cases 4 to 6 years of experience may be required. Usually, if you have 1 to 3 years of experience, you can be hired as a web developer
  • If you want to work as a web developer, the recruitment of female or male candidates is usually mentioned separately and there is no such obligation. Since both men and women carry the same burden of work and money, both men and women can work as web developers without any predominance.
