The part of a website that the user interacts directly with is termed as front end. It is also referred to as the ‘client side’ of the application.
Frontend Frameworks and Libraries :
Backend is the server side of a website. It is the part of the website that users cannot see and interact with. It is the portion of software that does not come in direct contact with the users. It is used to store and arrange data.
Backend Frameworks and Libraries :
PHP: PHP is a server-side scripting language designed specifically for web development.
Java: Java is one of the most popular and widely used programming languages. It is highly scalable.
Python: Python is a programming language that lets you work quickly and integrate systems more efficiently.
Web design refers to the design of websites that are displayed on the internet. It usually refers to the user experience aspects of website development rather than software development. Web design used to be focused on designing websites for desktop browsers; however, since the mid-2010s, design for mobile and tablet browsers has become ever-increasingly important.
A web designer works on the appearance, layout, and, in some cases, content of a website. Appearance, for instance, relates to the colors, font, and images used. Layout refers to how information is structured and categorized. A good web design is easy to use, aesthetically pleasing, and suits the user group and brand of the website. Many webpages are designed with a focus on simplicity, so that no extraneous information and functionality that might distract or confuse users appears. As the keystone of a web designer’s output is a site that wins and fosters the trust of the target audience, removing as many potential points of user frustration as possible is a critical consideration.
Website’s navigation is one of the main elements that determines whether that website is functioning properly.
Depending on the audience, navigation can serve multiple purposes:
*helping first time visitors discover what the site has to offer
*giving easy access to pages for returning visitors
*improving every visitor's overall
interacting with the site depending on the device (scrolling, clicking, typing, etc.).
The best website designs simplify these interactions to give the user the sense that they are in control.
There are tons of web animation techniques that can help the design grab visitor’s attention,
and allow visitors to interact with the site by giving feedback.
No one likes a slow website.
Having to wait more than a few seconds for a page to load can quickly deter a visitor from remaining on or returning to the site.
Regardless of how beautiful, if the site doesn’t load quickly,
it will not perform well in search (i.e. won’t rank high on Google).
How to improve speed and performance:
-Lazy load images(images load when the are in view ).
-immediate interactivity with the site.
Web programming refers to the writing, mark-up and coding involved in Web development,
which includes Web content, Web client and server scripting and network security.
which requires interdisciplinary knowledge on the application area, client and server scripting, and database technology.
Web content refers to the textual, aural, or visual content published on a website.
Content means any creative element, for example, text, applications, images, archived e-mail messages,
data, e-services, audio and video files, and so on.
Web content is the key behind traffic generation to websites.
Creating engaging content and organizing it into various categories for easy navigation is most important for a successful website.
Also, it is important to optimize the web content for search engines so that it responds to the keywords used for searching.
Client side and server side are web development terms that describe where application code runs.
Web developers will also refer to this distinction as the frontend vs. the backend,
In a serverless architecture, the serverless vendor hosts and assigns resources to all server-side processes, and the processes scale up as application usage increases.
Network security is a set of technologies that protects the usability and integrity of a company’s infrastructure by preventing the entry or proliferation within a network of a wide variety of potential threats.
A network security architecture is composed of tools that protect the network itself and the applications that run over it.
Effective network security strategies employ multiple lines of defence that are scalable and automated.
Each defensive layer enforces a set of security policies determined by the administrator.
The Web-based database management system is one of the essential parts of DBMS and is used to store web application data.
A web-based Database management system is used to handle those databases that are having data regarding E-commerce,
E-business, blogs, e-mail, and other online applications.
What is a DMBS:
Database Management Systems (DBMS) are software systems used to store, retrieve, and run queries on data.
A DBMS serves as an interface between an end-user and a database, allowing users to create, read, update, and delete data in the database.
