Web Development is a formal name of constructing a Website either for Internet (World Wide Web) or an Intranet (Private Network). It refers to the non-designing feature of Web construction, which includes the programming of a Website and is concerned with how the Website works. Most recently it is defined as the formation of content management systems (CMS), which manages the content on Website by using its Content Managing and Content Delivery applications. The Web Development varies from simplest single static page Websites to complex Multifunctional Websites of varied purposes. Building a Website may be a team effort for large Organizations or it may be an effort handled by single expert usually for small businesses.
Web development has come a long way. It was evolved with basic markup language HTML. The Websites contained only text pages along with headings. The work of Web Development was made easier by new and simple applications of HTML editor “Dreamweaver”. The earlier HTML was static, able to produce single pages. Each page was updated one by one, which was very time consuming. Later on dynamic HTML came onto the scene able to produce one file that automatically updates multiple pages of whole Website. Most recently the developers are using CMS, which makes each Website to work in an efficient way.
The future of Web Development will be perhaps more fast and efficient. More and more Developers are joining the Industry trying to hit something that would be next to impossible. The programming languages like Java Script, PHP, PSD, and XHTML are moving ahead quite fast with new features that will result in better versions with higher performance. It may also be possible that new programming languages would be introduced that replace the existing programming languages.
