Difference Between Web Design and Web Development

There is always a debate going on the same thing every now and them. Skilled people are arguing that web development and web design are almost the same thing and can be exchanged for one another. Though the truth is against the rumor, web development and web design are two separate entities. There is a possibility that these words were identical in the past, but with the impact of technology, they no longer are. They have long since become two terms completely separate from one another with different goals, standards, and philosophies behind them.

In a nut shell Web Development can be explained an activity to which includes developing a website for intranet or World Wide Web. Web Development includes constructing web content, designing websites, developing e-commerce websites, configuring web servers, scripting server-side.

When it comes to Web Design, it can be explained the way Wikipedia has defined ‘a process of conceptualization, planning, modeling, and execution of electronic media content delivery via Internet in the form of technologies’.

From the above brief explanations, there are a number of things which can be cleared out. Firstly, web design is an element of web development. It is a part of web development which is sometimes mistakenly taken as interchangeable with web development itself. Taking the example of Carbon elements, though coal and graphite both are composed of carbon but they can’t be considered as one. They are two separate things composed of the same element. Web design is a part of web development, but not actually an essential part of developing the web.

With the world progressing in the sector of websites, people no longer agree the myth of considering web design and web development the same thing, they agree and understand that each of them are different from another in various ways. When we talk about Web Development we talk about applications such as Content Management System which is used to manage your website and upload and download data along with the ease to publish data, publish images etc. Web Development also includes things like modification, innovation, scripting languages, coding languages, creation etc.

With all of America's advances in web development it became easy to separate the two terms from their synonymous relationship; it has become a process of developing technologies and applications for the advancement of the World Wide Web.

These technologies of course, can be adapted and used by anything related to the internet (such as websites) but is not merely limited to it. Content management systems (CMS) are one of the many examples of positive strides made in web development. CMS systems allow for easy management of content and data while online and can be used for simple server networking within an office, or as the backbone of an ecommerce website (voting systems in various states use CMS systems to tally and record votes via software). Web development also houses things such as the creation, modification, and innovation of scripting and coding languages.

Web design takes the development process a step ahead and at many times finds itself using these tools for ideas and applications vastly different than what they were intended for. Web design is solely about designing websites and is a work of using your creative skills to visualize things. Web Design is about using the application created by the web development tool and using them in the designing process. The web 2.0 concept is one of the greatest things brought by web design. Dynamic web pages which appeal to our visual eye use frameworks formed by web development tools but then again it is taken a step ahead to create a masterpiece of web design.
