What is Web Development

Web development is a broad term that can range from developing the simplest of websites, such as one page of plain text, to developing the most complex of online-based e-commerce applications. Ultimately, web development encompasses (but is not limited to) web engineering, web content development, web server and network security.

The face of web development is forever changing and has now gone beyond being just a tool for commerce and work. To give you a snapshot of the development we are seeing today we can look at platforms such as Facebook and Twitter which have exploited web dev tools to create platforms that provide users with a way to connect and communicate to others in a personal and interactive way. On a smaller scale, websites that have added a live chat feature are engaging in similar technologies.   

If you are a business of any size developing a website is crucial. Every business, big or small needs a website. In the modern age, a digital presence is one of the core ways to get clients through your door.
