Web Development

Web Development Summary

Web developers are the people who control things on the website. Front-end developers are the people who control the pretty stuff on a page, or the things you see and interact with. Back-end developers are the people who handle the not-so-pretty stuff. They manage the code and functionality of the program so it actually works. Database developers are the people who work on all the complicated stuff that could confuse you, or in more complex terms, how the information gets organized, stored and retrieved when the application requires it.

Tips on coding

  • Never stop learning
  • Be able to take constructive criticism. Thats a great way to learn!
  • Pay attention to detail.
  • As you write code, don't just think about how it will work for you right now, but think about if someone that has never seen it before can understand whats going on.
  • Don't be afraid to make mistakes, or take risks. The great thing about code is you can always just delete it and try again!
