The Basics introduction of Web Development
First, we have to clear what is the fundamental difference between Web Design and Web Development, here we go:
What is Web Design?
Web Design refers to the design of a page or website which display on the internet. Web designers work to make the website user-friendly also attractive. They are using various design programs such as Adobe Photoshop for layout and other visual elements of the website. It is a front-line interface. Web designers use several fundamental design principles to achieve an aesthetically pleasing form, which also offers an excellent user experience.
Let’s get started now when we think about the website; two things come in our mind. One is the front end and the second one is the back end. These two terms are an essential part of web development, but also they work differently from each other. They have their own work functionality. We can say that they are very much like two sides of the same coin.
What are Frontend and backend?
Now the question came to light, “What are Front-end and backend?”They are the two most crucial parts of software engineering that play a very important role in web development. The front-end side of a website is what you are seeing and interact with, and the backend part is how all of that works. Simply we can say that Front-end refers to the ‘client-side.’ In contrast, the backend refers to the ‘server-side’ of the application. The front end may refer to the graphical user interface(UI). The backend is that part of the website with which users cannot see or interact with it.
The backend is also referred to as the “server-side” It is the part of the website which we cannot see and interact with. Basically, everything that happens behind the front end is handled by the backend side of web development. It is all about the performance of the site. This part of the system doesn’t come in direct contact with the users.
The backend developers primarily work on communication between the presentation layer and the business layer. In short, we can say that backend web development is the combination of development and maintenance of the core functional logic of a software application. We can say that the backend developer’s job is to write code to make sure everything works fine at the front end. The backend part of a site. It is the brain of a website.
Short note on HTML:
The HTML is referred to as Hypertext Markup Language. It is not a programming language, whereas it is a markup language that is used for structuring the content for presentation over the web. As we know, it is not a programming language; therefore, it can’t perform mathematical logic or other features that are common in different programming languages like C, C++, JAVA, etc. HTML is elementary to learn; anyone can know this.
HTML is one of the leading technologies used on the World Wide Web, and it’s a necessary tool to know as a web developer. You’ll have to learn HTML and CSS if you want to build anything on the web and do any creative things. The HTML code is sent to the web browser, which can understand it and render a web page accordingly.
Short note on CSS:
CSS stands for Cascading Style Sheets. Another vital technology in web development is CSS, which uses in combination with HTML to style the resulting webpage. This is not a programming language; it’s a styling language that is mainly focused on how the page is looking. CSS can arrange the layout of various web pages all at once.
We can add CSS to the HTML code in three different ways to magnify the look of a web page or website.
- Inline – Here, we can add the style attribute in HTML elements
- Internal – In internal CSS we can add a <style> element in the <head> section
- External – by using an external CSS file
Now, it’s a turn of the backend parts ( jQuery, PHP, and MySQL):

Short note on MySQL:
The Oracles MySQL is a prevalent and popular database management system for small- to medium-sized web projects. Only the exclusive Oracle database and the small embeddable SQLite are more widely deployed. The application uses for a wide range of purposes, including data warehousing, e-commerce, and logging applications. Commonly, it uses for MySQL. However, it is for a web database.
Above all the mentioned in this article, we have discussed the basics of web development, its parts use, etc. After this, we will be going to start the HTML tutorial in this web development tutorial series. I hope this information is quite useful for you.
The Web Development Series is started from here. So, please stay with us.
