FAQs: Web Development
What is web development?
Web development is the process of building a website. It involves elements of design and programming to create a functional and easy experience for users. Web development shares elements with web design, but where web design focuses on the things that users see on a webpage, web development tends to focus on the unseen elements that make the website functional.
