Updated on December 29, 2016

Know about the man who makes a website attractive and easily accessible

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. He is responsible for programming the code that tells a web site how to function. A developer builds a website from the beginning, in such a way so that users have no difficulty navigating the site. 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.

Types of Web Developers:

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. Front end developers also use dynamic scripting languages like JavaScript. They are also responsible for the appearance and behavior of form elements like buttons, text buttons and drop down menus. 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:

Java Script (JS) is a type of web programming language that is supported across all web browsers and tools. A Java script developer is responsible for implementing the front- end logic that defines the behavior of the visual elements in a web application. He is also responsible for connecting with the services on the back-end. Normally, they are supported by back-end developers.

Developing new user-facing features of a website, Building reusable codes and libraries, Ensure the technical feasibility of UX/UI designs, optimize applications for maximum speed and scalability are some of the responsibilities of a JavaScript developer.

Full Stack developers:

Full Stack Developer is someone with familiarity in each layer, and a genuine interest in all software technology. They are capable of performing tasks at any level of the technical stack. A full stack developer has the capability of working with systems infrastructure. Like knowing what hardware to ask for, what OS to install and the dependencies of all software. Full stack developers manage projects and client work. For example, gathering client requirements, making architecture documents and creating technical specifications. They also create, understand and manipulate databases. They are the creator of front end codes like the HTML, JavaScript. Also, they have to look for the back-end codes like Ruby, Python etc.

Mobile Application Developers:

Mobile devices and applications are changing the way of communication. We cannot imagine a day without a smart phone. Businesses, programmers and consumers have happily embraced this innovative medium. Thus, nowadays we see that mobile application developers are one of the most demanded IT professionals. Mobile app developers write programs in a mobile development environment. For this they use the Objective-C, C#, Java programming language. A mobile developer also has to choose the operating system they will develop. For example; Google Android, Apple iOS, Windows Mobile, etc. They also migrate and adapt existing web applications to the leading mobile platforms. In-house mobile developers work closely with other departments to optimize grouping. They are the one who gives us new and enhanced mobile applications.

Whatever the circumstances, a developer plays a very important role in the making of a successful business. Without the activity of a developer ‘website’ would just be a name. A successful web developer with their hard work plays with a plain idea, with research, implementation and execution, they create such an attractive website for your business. In turn, these website brings you traffic or customers for your business. Therefore, it is 100% true that the credit for a successful website goes to the web developers.
