We often say the terms web development and web designing together without mentioning any differences between them. But, if we study closely, we find that there is a slight difference between these two terms. Here, today we almost all of us are fully aware of the terms websites. But we hardly know about the procedure that how the websites have been formed or how it work. In order to know about it, we have to know that this thing has become possible because of the two other different processes that work hand in hand. These two different processes are web development and web designing which are involved in the birth of a website. There are several differences between the web design and web development; some of the noted one have been pointed below.
Most of us have the impression that both mean almost same but if we go literally also there is a difference. The difference is in the words ‘development’ and ‘designing’. ‘Development’ normally means the creation of something new and then developing it for better results whereas the word ‘designing’ refers something which is normally beautified or designed for a better presentation.
As far as website is concerned, web developments mean the creation of a new code which generates the website and let us see the browser in the proper way. The interactive parts of the sites are also looked upon here. The links to other pages and pop ups are also involved in the process of web development whereas web designing is confined with the visuals of the websites. This only includes graphics and layout. It involves the work of colour, fonts, header, footers, navigation, images etc.
The developers are to learn programming skills and the way to use a number of soft wares but the designers have to learn the use of various software development to create attractive websites.
So these are certain basic differences between the web development and web designing. And the people who are skilled in both the techniques are always in great demand in the international web market. It is somewhat believed that development is much difficult when compared to web designing because of the several codes involved in it.
