What is a Web Developer?

A good web developer can build almost any type of website you can think of. Web developers — or coders — are engineers who create the site’s functionality by coding in a variety of languages. The most prevalent coding languages include HTML, CSS, PHP, MySQL, JavaScript, jQuery, AJAX etc. A freelance web developer will be able to create advanced websites from a combination of these languages. A website developer will often have a more advanced coding ability than a web designer, enabling you to create complex functionalities for your company’s site. Developers are also the experts you will contact if you need to address technical problems. By contacting a freelance web development service, you will be able to find the best combination of freelancers to transform your company’s website with ease.

Some developers handle all aspects of a website’s construction, and others specialize in a certain aspect of it. Depending on your site’s needs, you can choose a remote freelance web developer who is an expert in a specific language, alternatively, you can opt for a more general web developer, who has a wide range of skills. Here are some examples of types of specialized web developers:

Back-end web developers are responsible for the overall technical construction of the website. They create the basic framework of the site and ensure that it works as expected. Back-end web developers also establish procedures for allowing others to add new pages to the website and meet with management to discuss major changes to the site.

Front-end web developers are responsible for how a website looks. They create the site’s layout and integrate graphics, applications (such as a retail checkout tool), and other content. They also write web-design programs in a variety of computer languages, such as HTML or JavaScript.

Webmasters maintain websites and keep them updated. They make sure that websites operate correctly, and they test for errors such as broken links. Many webmasters respond to user comments as well.

Web developers are responsible for your website’s technical aspects, such as the speed and capacity of the site. Indeed, they will monitor and enhance a website’s speed and how much traffic the site can handle. These aren’t the only tasks they will manage, web developers may create content for the website, too.

Typical Duties of web developers
Meet with clients or management to discuss the needs and design of a website
Frontend development from the website mockup
Write code for the website, using programming languages such as PHP, MySQL, Javascript etc
Integrate graphics, content, and video into the website
Insert the Analytics code into the website
Website Speed Optimization
Web Security Optimization
Monitor website traffic
When creating a website, developers have to make their client’s vision a reality. They build particular types of websites, such as e-commerce, news, or gaming sites, to fit clients’ needs. Different types of websites require different applications. For example, a gaming site should be able to handle advanced graphics, whereas an e-commerce site would need a payment-processing application. The developer decides which applications and designs will best fit the site.
