Web development is a broad term for the work involved in developing a website. Among web professionals, “web development” usually refers to the main non-design aspects of building websites: writing mark-up & coding. Web development can range from developing the simplest static single page of plain text, to the most complex web-based internet applications, e-commerce or social network services.
Pursuing a career in Web Development at CTU Training Solutions will ensure the student acquires the requisite skills to become a Web designer after completing the 1st year programme. At the end of the 2nd year, the student will have the knowledge to create dynamic web-based, database-driven applications, thereby ensuring he is a fully qualified web developer.
A web designer is responsible for the design, layout and formatting of a website. They are involved with the graphical aspects of a website – how the website looks and feels. A web developer on the other hand, handles the technical aspects of a website, with emphasis on how it works. Both disciplines may be responsible for the maintenance and updating of a website. Employment opportunities cut across all industry sectors, from finance and retail to public organisations. They may be employed directly by IT consultancies, software houses, web design agencies or work in an organisation’s IT department.
