Web development is the work involved in developing a web site (or more generally a web portal, or a web service) for the Internet (and in particular for Internet’s so called World Wide Web protocol, or www in short). Web development can range from developing a simple single static (with it’s content not generated dynamically) web page of plain text to complex web applications, electronic businesses, social network and communication web services. A more comprehensive list of tasks to which web development commonly refers, may include among others web engineering, web design, web content development, client liaison, client-side/server-side scripting, web server and network security configuration, and e-commerce development.
Among web professionals, web development usually refers to the main non-design aspects of building web sites: writing markup and coding. Web development may use content management systems (CMS) to make content changes easier and available with basic technical skills (and especially streamline these changes and enable involvement of more people, e.g. administrative staff).
For larger organizations and businesses, web development teams can consist of hundreds of people (web developers) and follow standard methods like Agile methodologies while developing comples web sites, web portals or web services. Smaller organizations may only require a single permanent or contracting developer, or secondary assignment to related job positions such as a graphic designer or information systems technician. Web development in general may be a collaborative effort between departments rather than the domain of a designated department. As a common practice, advanced web projects are implemented by contracted specialized companies that only focus their expertise on development, deployment and administrating web sites or web services (web development companies).
