Web Development London

Website Development

What is the difference between web design and website development? We like to think of it as the difference between an artist and an engineer. Both types of expertise are required to create a successful website. While web designers focus on the creative, visual appearance of your website, the developers ensure the site is fully functional and fit for purpose.

Front-end web development and backend programming

There is a further difference between front end web developers and backend programmers. The work of a front end web developer concerns what a visitor sees and interacts with during their time on the website. This involves the visible layout of a site and how it responds to different screen sizes. It also concerns different web applications, such as contact forms, popups, blogs, RSS feeds, newsletter signups, download buttons and so on. All our front-end developers are qualified and highly experienced in programming languages such as JavaScript, HTML 5 and CSS3.

While our front end web development team are busy creating the customer facing aspect of your website, our backend programmers have their hands full with the equally important task of perfecting the user interface and making sure everything works smoothly behind the scenes. This, for instance, might include making sure your contact forms are connected to a database to record interaction from your customers, or that your website is integrated with a content management system (CMS). It is also essential to ecommerce website design, and allows for payment transactions and inventory management, among other crucial running tasks.

A positive experience for your visitors depends on the fluid interaction of web designers, developers and programmers, all working towards the common goal of building a fantastic website for your business.

The very best of all worlds

At Active Webdezign, we work with an exceptionally talented team of both web design and development specialists.

Between us, we can accommodate the full spectrum of web development, from concept designs through to CMS development and building web applications for your website.

Individual programmers usually have a propensity towards either design or development. Therefore, one of the great benefits of working with a close-knit agency team such as ourselves is it gives you access to the complete range of designer technologies required to launch a truly innovative website.
