development is the work involved in developing a Web site for the Internet or
an intranet. Web development can range from developing a simple single static
page of plain text to complex Web-based Internet applications, electronic
businesses, and social network services. A more comprehensive list of
tasks to which Web development commonly refers may include Web engineering, Web design, Web content development,
client liaison, client-side/server-side scripting, Web server and network security configuration, and e-commerce development.
Among Web professionals, Web development usually refers to the main non-design aspects of building Websites writing markup and coding. Web development may use content management systems (CMS) to make content changes easier and available with basic technical skills.
Typically it refers to the coding and programming side of website production as opposed to the web design side.
For larger organizations and businesses, Web development teams can consist of hundreds of people (Web developers) and follow standard methods like Agile methodologies while developing Web sites. Smaller organizations may only require a single permanent or contracting developer, or secondary assignment to related job positions such as a graphic designer or information systems technician. Web development may be a collaborative effort between departments rather than the domain of a designated department. There are three kinds of Web developer specialization: front-end developer, back-end developer, and full-stack developer. Front-end developers are responsible for behaviour and visuals that run in the user browser, while back-end developers deal with the servers.
