Web Developer

A web developer is a software developer or programmer who specializes in coding websites and web applications.  A web developer is not a designer, although some designers do have some development skills and vise-versa. A web developer takes a website plan and design and turn it into a website.

Different types of web developers specialize in different areas, which means large web projects are normally a collaboration between several different developers.  Front-end Developers design and write the code for the front-end – the visual part of the website comprised of HTML, CSS and JavaScript. Back-end developers are responsible for client-side programming, servers, databases, and any applications that are contained there. Full-stack Developers understand both front and back end strategies and processes so for small projects using a full-stack developer is the most efficient way to have the site developed.
