The life of a programmer consists heavily of late-nights staring at lines of code. Web development can cover a vast landscape of possibility, from simple, single static pages to complex web & mobile apps, intricate and product-heavy online marketplaces, and even entire social network services. With countless coding languages out there, you want to make sure that your brand’s global presence online is making use of just the right one to serve you best in both functionality and visual appeal.
When you land on a webpage, the visual representation you are presented with is just a product of the coding. Your computer processes this code, and assembles the page accordingly. Think of web development as the blueprints, nuts, and bolts of your website. The code is not only what makes the website run, but it is what makes it run the way it does, look the way it does, and feel the way it does when you are on it. It quite literally determines your entire experience of the site, and this is why it is so very important.
You may have ideas for what you would like your website to look like, or what elements you would like in it (i.e. a chat box, a cycling gallery of photos, etc), but making that happen is not as simple as many assume. It takes writing, by hand, exactly what you want the computer to show everyone, and it is up to the programmer to write it in the computer’s language so everything is functional. One misplaced letter or character can break the code, and take down the site. This is why it is not only important but also well worth it to go with a professional web developing service when it comes to your brand’s website for a positive online presence overall.
