Web Coding

Web coding is also known as software engineering or programming. It is the process of creating the software files, modules, and components that make up a website or web application.

Traditionally web coding is split between frontend codes and backend codes. Furthermore, this field is vast and includes many coding languages, technology stacks, and frameworks. Therefore, some software packages are developed on technology that operates across both the front-end and back-end.

What is the Frontend in web coding?

The Front-End is what the user sees and interacts with. This is commonly referred to as the client side.

The frontend is typically accessed through a web browser such as Chrome or Safari. Front-end codes are typically HTML, CSS, JavaScript, images, videos, and fonts for websites and web applications.

Modern frontends may use various JavaScript libraries and frameworks like Jquery, React, Vue, etc. that enhance the interactivity and performance of the website.

What is the Backend in web coding?

The Back-End of a website is the code that runs on the server exclusively and is never directly presented to the user. The user has no way to view or access backend codes.

This code handles the processing of data from the user, from the database, and from other systems running on the computer that is hosting the website.

It also handles running algorithms, computations, image manipulation, text processing, and more.

A typical modern website will use the PHP scripting language for backend codes. Although other languages and frameworks can be used including node.js, java, asp.net, c#, and more.

There are many frameworks, libraries, scripts, and systems that are built using PHP. These include WordPress, Magento, Laravel, Joomla, and many others.

The most important function of these server codes is reading, writing, deleting, and updating information in a database system.

Our Approach to Web Coding

We rely heavily on the Plan, which is the second step in our Project Management system, to guide and inform the software development process. Without this step, a project will most likely fail to meet its requirements and objectives.

Additionally, the style guide and design documents are critical in the production phase of the project. These documents tell programmers about the structure, layout, functionality, and aesthetics of a website or application.

Code is written with several factors in consideration including adaptability, extendability, modularity, documentation, file system organization, code readability, security, performance, and compliance.

We employ modern code editors and specialized 3rd party software and tools for testing, debugging, prototyping, staging, and deploying new websites and apps.
