Brief Introduction To Web Design
Web design became an inevitable part of the contemporary business companies due to its endless possibilities which are the reflection of the company and its business. The interaction between users or potential customers and the company has become important more than ever – the company needs to know what the customers want and what they don’t want. The web platform is the best tool for improving the existing business and extending it to its limits.
Best 6 Programming languages that we use
What is SEO and why do we need it ?
Search Engine Optimization became a very important asset in the web world at the beginning of the 1990s when webmasters began experimenting with optimizing web pages so they could be found much more easily. From simple “spiders” that crawled the and indexed pages, to a sophisticated courses where you can learn about the SEO secrets -SEO became crucial fact in the process of setting your business. Since we live in the era of Internet, as soon as you start your business, you must enable your potential customers to find you easily. SEO is what gives your customers an easy way to find you and get your service.
Web development encompasses many things – from creating a plain text to the complicated applications, e-business sites, and social network services. Although web development requires from the programmer to know some programming language, due to increased use of web services and applications web development became available to non-technical people to make small changes on their website, without the need to pay some web developer to make changes. According to the type of work they do, web developers are often divided into three groups: front-end-developers, back-end-developers, and full-stack-developers.
To put it easy, programming languages are languages that are created to give programmers a way to communicate with computers. It means that we type in some commands and the computer then reacts accordingly and print us an output or a result. Different industries use different languages but we can make a general division among the types of programming languages. Simple as that, but far more complicated. We will try to explain each of these languages in an easy way so that an average user can comprehend the matter.
Procedural languages – Aimed for solving a problem
Procedural languages are languages that are used whenever we have some sort of procedure for solving a problem. It means that these languages usually have to execute a long list of statements that lead to a final result. As it says, the language follows the procedure to solve a problem. The procedural languages have many loops and variables which can be modified by the functions for example. The most used procedural language is C.
Functional languages – use for solving the abstract problems
This type of language characterizes the use of recursive functions – the functions that return a value. These functions do not affect any value or variable, but rather change the parameters of the call. Due to their simplified syntax, they are used for solving abstract issues. Python programming language is among the best and the most used functional languages.
Object-oriented languages – programming through objects that have attributes, clasess etc.
Object-oriented language is unique due to already defined parameters which will be used by an object. The problem that needs to be solved is divided into objects where each objects has its own attributes and the collection of the object gives the services which can be used for resolving a matter. One term is closely connected to these languages, and that is the term “encapsulation.” Encapsulation means simply that everything one object could need is embedded into the object. This language also has “inheritance” which means that you can create new objects without the need to change a big part of the project’s code. Well known language is C++.
Scripting languages – work as procedural languages, with elements of object-oriented language
Scripting language is not a “full-fledged” programming language although it works as procedural language that has elements of object-oriented language. In another words – this language is used for scripting or automating tasks. This language is unique, since each time you work with this language you actually write a specific script for that program which will automatically run and execute a task. An interesting fact is that many hackers are using scripting as their one of the most powerful tools. Of course, the famous language is PHP.
Logic language – instructions for computers
Logic language gives the possibility to programmers to make declarative statements; computers will not get the instructions how to do something but rather “suggestions” for completing some tasks. Therefore, the name logic language comes from the fact that computer tries to conclude “on its own” what it should do to get by some obstacle or to perform some operation. Prolog is currently the best language for logic programming.
Creating a website is a dynamic and complex process that requires creativity, knowledge, and idea. Each web site has its purpose and role, so it is pointless to create something just like that. So the very first thing is the idea – what is the web site about, who is aimed for and what will bring it to you? These are three questions that you must answer before you embark on this journey.
The first thing – Web Platform
Web platforms are a bit new term, especially for those who are not good with technical data. Back in the days (in the time of dial-up connections) all the web sites, or at least 95%, were made using HTML and CSS code. Some of these also implemented the Flash technologies to make the website rich and good-looking. As the technology advanced, more people wanted to create the websites. When WordPress arrived, it was easy to create web pages, even to those who had never coded a single line in any programming language.
So in a nutshell, you need to choose the platform. WordPress, Joomla or Drupal is the top three choice we would recommend, although you can always code it manually using HTML language if you like. However, assuming that you are not a programmer, WodPress is the best option to go with. Why ? Simply because it is easy to use, has a great community for learning, it is very responsive (it will be easily accessible from smart phones, tablets, etc.) and it has many free assets you don’t have to pay.
The second thing – Finding a domain and hosting
To launch your website, you will need a domain name and a hosting service that connects our website to the Internet. You can also use free services via WordPress, but if you want to look professional, get yourself a hosting and domain service which are not expensive at all. Another pro of having your hosting and domain is that your website will load much quickly than if you had used free hosting or free domains. Note that you need to choose domain according to your service/products that you offer. You need something catchy, and you need .com in your domain to look more professional.
Setting up and launching your site
After you buy hosting service and domain and you create your website, it is time to launch it! The first thing is to install WP, choose your layout and design (you can choose among many free designs or create a new one from scratch), add content and tweak the whole web site to improve it, so it runs smoothly and quickly. From this point, you need to create a static front page, add a tagline and titles, other pages, add content and install the plugins that you will need (like a plugin for a contact form for example). For the sake of the article, we will end this one right here since we explained the basic steps. If you want to find out more or as for advice, please contact us through the contact form.
