What is a web developer?
A web developer is a programmer who creates programs and applications for the World Wide Web. A web developer knows how to build a website from the bottom up: they can create custom code to accommodate your unique needs, developing everything from the site layout to features and functions on the webpage.
What does a web developer do?
Web development can be divided into three parts:
Client-side scripting, which is code that executes in a web browser and determines what your customers or clients will see when they land on your website.
Server-side scripting, which is code that executes on a web server and powers the behind-the-scenes mechanics of how a website works.
Database technology, which also helps keep a website running smoothly.
