The website of
a company speaks clearly and intuitively about the
brand-conception, market viability, vision & mission and
what not! In fact, it is an online counter and spokesperson
for the organization as a whole. The website is going to be
there to inform, educate, promote or serve the individual
and the organization. At a large extent, there must be a
sensitivity in managing the creation and maintenance of a
website in order to convey the right set of messages across.
A design and functionality of a website can uphold an
organization or ruin just on the basis of the present
Design & Development: is a broad term for any
activity related to developing a web site for the World Wide
Web or an intranet. This can include e-commerce business
development, web design, web content development,
client-side/server-side scripting, and web server
configuration. However, among web professionals, "web
development" usually refers only to the non-design aspects
of building web sites, e.g. writing markup and coding. Web
development can range from developing the simplest static
single page of plain text to the most complex web-based
internet applications, electronic businesses, or social
For larger businesses and organizations, web development
teams can consist of hundreds of people (web developers).
Smaller organizations may only require a single permanent or
contracting webmaster, or secondary assignment to related
job positions such as a graphic designer and/or Information
systems technician. Web development may be a collaborative
effort between departments rather than the domain of a
There is an ongoing debate on the extent to which the
writing of programs is an art, a craft or an engineering
discipline. Good programming is generally considered to be
the measured application of all three, with the goal of
producing an efficient and evolvable software solution (the
criteria for "efficient" and "evolvable" vary considerably).
The discipline differs from many other technical professions
in that programmers generally do not need to be licensed or
pass any standardized (or governmentally regulated)
certification tests in order to call themselves
"programmers" or even "software engineers." However,
representing oneself as a "Professional Software Engineer"
without a license from an accredited institution is illegal
in many parts of the world.
Another ongoing debate is the extent to which the
programming language used in writing computer programs
affects the form that the final program takes. This debate
is analogous to that surrounding the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis
in linguistics, that postulates that a particular language's
nature influences the habitual thought of its speakers.
Different language patterns yield different patterns of
thought. This idea challenges the possibility of
representing the world perfectly with language, because it
acknowledges that the mechanisms of any language condition
the thoughts of its speaker community.
