What is the difference between web design and web development?

Some people get confused between web designer and web developer. Here’s are the main difference below.

Cliffs:
Web Designer:

  • Using software tools such as Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, or Sketch to build the final layout design of the website
  • Have good skills in graphic design and logo design
  • Have a good feel for user experience, to identify the simplest approach possible to attain the desired function. This includes the layout, buttons, images and the general format of the website.
  • Web designers need to keep themselves up to date with the latest design trends. It’s also important to keep design consistency that is made popular from other web giant companies, such as Google, and Facebook. This makes the website environment and interface easier to navigate and use, as it is already familiar to the users eyes.
  • Web designers have to also keep in mind the branding of the website, colour palettes to be used, and the typography and readability of the website.

Web Developer:

  • Building the actual interface through which a user interacts with the website. This interface is built by front-end developers using HTML, CSS, and JS languages.
  • Front-end developers can use styling preprocessors, javascript libraries, and frameworks to fasten the process of development.
  • Front-end developers provide the markup design to back-end developers, so they can implement a dynamic website, and submit all the required data on the server and databases.
  • Back-end developers create the backbone of the website using languages such as PHP and MySQL.
  • Both front-end and back-end developers can use the same development environments or IDEs (Integrated Development Environment). These are software application tools where you code and build the structure of the website.
  • Web developers may also use versioning tools to keep a history of the previous builds. This will help them to quickly and effortlessly move back to a previous “unbroken” version if required to do so.

10 Best Programming Languages That You Need To Learn In 2017

TDLR
I guess I am on the right track! Studying JS still quite good in 2017. Swift on the other hand..what the…2625?!?! I dont even..Don’t be alarm when you are first starting out. It’s just good to know. Don’t jump on the bandwagon. Focus on the basic firsts, HTML, CSS and JavaScript. By having a good foundation rules than over knowing 10+ programming languages. Once you master a programming language, you can easily pick up other languages. Gotta keep an eye on the market as well.

Just doing some job trend comparison from March 2016 and March 2017. Slight % differences.
Looks like Go is getting quite popular. Pretty much rest of them drop some %.
