Web development (the basic nutshell).

Web development has two types of development in order to make it work. Front-end development refers to what the viewers actually sees when they load up a web application. The three codes used for this are HTML (content), CSS (design) and JavaScript (how it interacts). The back-end is what goes behind the screen AKA the scheme of codes.

Hyper Text Markup language. This is a code for marking up text to make it into a webpage. It allows you to send hyperlinks on specific texts and change it. It works by a series of short codes as revised before. When viewed ‘online’, the codes will be read and hopefully what you have asked the codes to do will appear on screen.

What is XML?

Extensible Markup Language. The difference with this to HTML is XML is designed to DESCRIBE data, but HTML is designed to DISPLAY data.

This example is a note to Tove from Jani as an XML. You can add your own tags without having any changes happening to make it easier to read. The difference with HTML is that it is specific with the information within the brackets.

Cascading Style Sheets. This is how the HTML elements are supposed to be displayed on the screen. CSS helps to control the appearance of what is on the screen without changing the content on the HTML.

What is JavaScript?

As described before, it is a programming language that is used to make web pages interact. You need this last code for the previous ones to actually make everything work the way it is supposed to; otherwise you’re looking at a screen and not being able to go anywhere.

So basically, HTML refers to the information and content on the page, CSS is about how it will all be positioned/look like and JavaScript make it ‘come to life’ to put it in its simplest format.

    1. Thank you so much! 🙂 indeed, the same with everything within art and design. Everything needs to start somewhere and often people mislead the time it takes to make something and how complex it will be!
