Introduction To Web Development Languages
The development is the set of techniques, technologies, and skills, orchestrated by a programmer and applied for obtaining new websites.
Web development has two different and related areas, the server part and the client part. The first is considered the source where the information is produced in HTML format and which the client will access through a web browser.
A very important factor to take into account when choosing a ‘web language’ is how the information is produced on the server-side, and how it is reproduced on the client-side
In the meetings prior to the conception of the project, it is essential to have the figure of an experienced web developer who analyzes the type of information to be treated in the project as well as the ‘business logic,’ in order to advise what language and the system is to be implemented.
How Are Web Development Languages For Internet
We are not going to say that some are more important than others; however, the web programmer will dedicate most of the work, by far, to the language that is on the server-side, in what is popularly called ‘back-end.’ On this side, the tasks for the future administration of the website are carried out: registrations, cancellations, modifications, how the presentation of the content is built, and as many others as the project needs.
Basically, the server language generates the information in HTML that will travel over the network to the client’s browser, and that process has to be as safe and fast as possible in order to bring a positive experience to the end-user.
Interpreted Or Compiled Language
As we have already mentioned, it is not a matter of assessing whether one system is better than another, rather it is a matter of deciding on the basis of the information to be processed, how it will be generated and how it will be presented to the client or Internet user.
In a compiled language, every time a content update occurs, the language needs to generate a new ‘package’ which will be the one that will be accessible to the user, entailing a significant timeout while compiling the information, but once generated the machine distributes it in minute times.
We find that for a project with numerous updates, for example, a newspaper, blog, online store, it is not recommended. Normally these types of languages are under private license and are more in demand on business platforms.
In an interpreted language, the information does not have to produce any package every time there is an update, what the language does is translate each instance of the code, dynamically generating the latest information from what it requires, it is ideal for sites with frequent updates.
The general rule is that the code is under a free ‘ Open Source ‘ license with the advantage of having access to an enormous amount of resources and information.
At this point and with what we have learned, we can deduce the importance of having quality web hosting or hosting capable of responding to the demands of our project, which we want to be executed accurately and quickly.
Ideal Qualities Of A Web Developer
- Being able to generate clean code
- Work with object-oriented programming
- Apply secure programming techniques for the web
- Use current standards such as those recommended by the W3C
- It is the latest in technical SEO positioning
- Have knowledge of web accessibility and usability

Is Web Accessibility Important?
The W3C (World Wide Web Consortium) is the worldwide body that defines the rules to apply to a website so that it is accessible and has a level of usability that is at least acceptable.
