web design vs web development

web design and development

welcome to the ITknowladge.com. In this post i will explain you about web development. So today, we will start with our first section. Which is web development and you should know that the blog will be divided into sections. In each section we will start or study one programming language. But because web development contains more than one programming language, so it will be divided into subsections.

What is difference web design and web development?

In this post, we will talk about the difference between a web designer and a web developer okay? and which one is better? You may think that, there is no difference between theme. And both titles maybe looks like the same. But actually there’s a big difference between them, and in this post, we will talk about three differences. First, The difference in the Job Description. Second, the difference in the programming language knowledge. Third, the difference in the used software.

first difference...

what is job description?

The difference in the job description as a web designer. I only care about the design of the web page, the design of the layout, choosing colors. I care about the beauty and the shape of the web page, That’s all. As a developer, I build the website. I make the website functional. I make the web site dynamic. For example, when you open facebook.com. You will find that the posts are in the middle. The groups are on your left hand and your friends are on your right hand. Who chooses the design, who divides the web page like that, who chooses the colors, the web designer. So, what about the web developer of A web developer is the one who makes you create the Facebook account.
because who is the one that knows the programming languages that make you create a Facebook account. Who is the one that makes you create a Facebook post. who is the one the one that makes your message reach your friends. who is the one that makes Facebook.com dynamic website.

That's it The second difference,

what is programming language knowledge?

the difference in programming language knowledge as a web designer. I don’t need to study or learn any programming language Because. I just design, but it’s better to know or study HTML5 CSS3 and a little JavaScript.
As a web developer, of course, I should study programming languages, and at minimum. I should study HTML5, CSS3, PHP, javascript jQuery. If I want to make more professional websites maybe I should study Ajax, python, C++, C#. Don’t worry we will learn all of these programming languages with us.

The third difference....

what is the software used?

The difference in used software. As a web designer, I need a graphic design software such as Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Flash. If I don’t want to study HTML5 or CSS3. I can use a software that makes me create a web page. Create a website, or design a website from just drag and drop. That’s it. such as Adobe Dreamweaver or Microsoft publisher.
This software will generate HTML for you but be careful. Because they are not 100% accurate and you should revise the generated code. As a web developer, I use a simpler software such as Microsoft Visual Studio. But this software is not free software and I should pay for it. We can use a free software but a powerful free software called NetBeans, and you will use two free software. First, the brackets which you will use to learn HTML5. Second, Netbeans which you will use to learn other programming languages. (for go to netbeans click here, or go to brackets click here.) Let’s go to the more interesting question which is:

which is better web design or web development?

Please don’t ask this question.WHY? because you can’t compare 2 different jobs. A web designer just design or give the design to the web developer, to start building the website. For example, an interior decorator uses a 3D software to create a design. And gives the design to the civil engineer to start building. You can’t compare the job of the civil engineer. And the job of the interior decorator, because this design and this build. There’s no comparison between them; But you may say that the salary of the web developer.because who is the one that knows the programming languages that make you create a Facebook account. Who is the one that makes you create a Facebook post. who is the one the one that makes your message reach your friends. who is the one that makes Facebook.com dynamic website. (if you want to know more click here).

who gets higher salary?

web designer or web developer?

web design vs web development

Developer is higher than the salary of the web designer. Yes, of course. You are right but both of them have a high salary. And you may find that; A web designer has a higher salary than of the web developer in a certain company. Because he is more professional in his job.
You may ask me can I work as a web designer and a web developer? Of course, you can, why not. But you may say that I never used Photoshop before. I can’t design any photos or any image to create or design a website. You don’t need to create or design images or photos. why? Because the web designer, today, starts to create websites from just divisions and colors. For example google.com I don’t see any images in the design but it’s a beautiful design. On this site, we will teach you how to create a beautiful website for just using colors. Don’t worry we can make Photoshop lessons at the end of the section. Or after being learning all the programming languages we need.
But you may say: I can’t choose matched colors. Don’t worry. This has a rule and we will teach you this rule. Don’t worry about anything because you will learn anything. if you want to create a website from scratch. This is the end of the post and in the next post. We will talk about what is domain and what is server? and how to get them and how to make your website online. So, be with us and thank you for follow our post. please comment for your suggestions or your problem.
