With thousands of technological tools at your disposal for the sole purpose of web development, taking your pick from this plethora of selection to only utilize the most efficient of tools is not a piece of cake. So without further ado, let us begin the learning process of ‘The Best Technology for Web Application Development’!
Client-Side Programming Languages
Every website in the world is composed of a database, generally the information you wish to be presented on your site. This database is crammed into the markup language of your choice which is then accessed through a server. Markup codes you can put into use for your web development are:
Hypertext Markup Language (HTML)
Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) is the standard markup language dominating the websites all over the globe with its extensive use and demand. This is the markup coding for web pages and is made up of HTML elements, often called the building blocks of an HTML page. These elements can bottle up information that you wish to cater to the users. During coding, HTML elements are symbolized by tags, which in turn can comprise HTML attributes that hold further facts about your website. Another feature of HTML is the presence of Links, images, information or objects that can connect to another HTML page, within the elements. Such Links can enhance the informative nature of your site.
Cascading Style Sheets (CSS)
While Hypertext Markup Language formulated the content itself, the Cascading Style Sheets determine the appearance of that content. To list a few attributes, the CSS works on the font size and font family, the background, the color, and even crafts animated text to appeal to the audience. CSS is an important tool in web development and web design as it improves user experience. A universal fact is that good user experience births growth, so make sure to take note of that.
Interestingly enough, the syntax of Cascading Style Sheets is formed from different English words, which are then used specifically in accordance to the rules of the style sheet. A selector, or sometimes more than one, are instilled within each rule, which then decides which customization will be applied where. Wherever a selection is applied, the text, or we can say the element, is modified and the greater variety of selector you apply, the more unique and attractive the HTML page turns out to be. A lot of web developers and designers make use of CSS selectors to invite users and make the appearance of the site eye-catching.
Server-Side Programming Languages
Primarily designed to encourage interaction with a user, the server-side programming languages are constructed into the system by the web developer. If a member of your audience were to select an element or wished to browse through your HTML document, the server-side programs will come in handy to assist them and in enhancing their overall experience. Now, there is a multitude of tools you can utilize to achieve a wholesome framework that will satisfy your audience while designing your website. A smattering of those tools are:
