What Does a Web Developer Do?March 23, 2021
Web development Abu Dhabi is a craft that involves diverse technologies. The responsibility of the web developer is to make sure that the client gets a website that does exactly what he wants it to do. A huge difference lies between being a web developer and a web designer; their roles do overlap sometimes but the web designer will hardly ever be involved with any of the actual code that constructs the web site.
The Design and Functionality of the Website
When you get the contract for a web project, a lot of planning and analysis needs to take place. The customer usually requires the website to function in a particular way. The project manager and his development team estimates how long this will take.
During this stage, the web designer participates to ensure that his design works with the customer’s requirements.
The Business Logic as Specified by the Customer
Once the planning and analysis stage is completed, the web developer starts developing the website. It often entails working with both client side technologies such as HTML, Java Script and CSS and server side technologies such as PHP and .NET.
A web developer should be proficient with many technologies knowing which tools to use for each part of the website.
Implementing the Web Design
Although both the web developer and the web designer often work together, it is usually the web developer who has the task of implementing the web design on the website.
Testing, Testing, Testing
Testing is the most important, often neglected, part of a web development project. Any critical errors on the website can cause the customer the risk of losing a lot of money and certainly a lot of credibility.
Nonetheless, the web developer should not be responsible for testing the web site; it should be tested by someone who has not been involved in the actual development of the web site. This can be someone like a digital marketing agency.
