What is Web Development ?

Web development is a process in which we create and maintain websites. Web development can range from developing the simplest static single page of plain text to the most complex web-based internet applications, electronic businesses, and social network services.
If you are reading this page, then I guess you know what a website is.
Website is home of web pages.
It is an address where one or more than one web pages live happily.

Websites do a lot for us like providing information, documents, images, audio, videos, maps, connecting us with people, shopping and much more.

There are educational websites, government websites, music websites, commercial websites, social networking websites and much more.
A person whom we call web developer creates the websites.
The web developer uses scripting languages for website creation.

The languages used for creating websites differ in various aspects. HTML is the first language used for creating websites. HTML stands for Hypertext Markup Language. It is a client side scripting language. It was initially used for creating static websites but the new version provides functionality to create dynamic websites also.

With HTML we have PHP (Personal Home Page: Hypertext PreProcessor) which is also widely used for creating dynamic websites. PHP is a server side scripting language. We can use HTML with PHP. With PHP, the creation of websites became quite easy. We can connect database, process information and other things.

CSS stands for Cascading Style Sheets. It is used with HTML and PHP to provide a great graphical formatting to web pages. Using CSS, we can change text size; colour attributes and apply styles and other things to our web pages.

With HTML and PHP, we can also use Javascript. Javascript is a dynamic computer programming language which is used as a part of web browsers. Using Javascript, client side-scripts interact with the user, control the browser, and communicate asynchronously, and alter the document content that is displayed.
Once you start learning web development, it becomes interesting as you proceed to learn.
