He who is known as a Web Content Developer is also a Web Developer. A Web developer builds and maintains websites with the client and keeping the consumer in mind.

The website should be flexible, neither too simple nor too complicated. Simplicity does not appeal the advanced users, while complicated websites confuse the beginners.

Most Web projects are divided into layers like the front end, business logic, and data access. Each developer who specializes on each tier are given works based on their skill.

Front-end Developers:

Front-end developers work on the user interface that codes the front of a website. Web Design is about the looks of a website, while the front- end development is how that design gets implemented on the web. They use markup languages like HTML, XAML and CSS.

Depending upon the complexity of the project, few works are related to images and artistic corners are done by Web Designers.


Back-End Developers:

The back-end is also called the data access layer. A back-end developer builds and maintains the technology needed to power the components which enable the user- facing side of a website. Back end includes code that allows communication with the database. Web developers basically write interfaces which are the codes to the database in languages like the Java, or PHP. The database is coded by a specialized language called SQL. Their back-end code adds utility to everything the front end designer makes.

Java Script Developers:
