Introduction to Website Development

Introduction
Website Development is all around you, if you use the internet then you know that every website you have visited was developed by someone may it be Google, Facebook or even Hack Forums. Each and every one of these websites are famous and were not developed by someone with basic or intermediate skills. These were developed by experts who have spend endless hours advancing their skills. The internet is an endless stream of knowledge and it's there for you to learn all about website development and many many other topics!

The real question is how are these developed right? Well in this thread we are going to cover everything that you seen in the index.

Basic Development
To begin developing a website you need to know the basics of what a website is made of and then learn them. The very basics a website are made of is HTML and CSS.
The HTML is for placing everything on the website and for inputting things like images, videos and even audio in the website.
The CSS side is for changing the style of the website, this includes the colors of links and background colors of the website.

We will go into this in more depth further down the page under Languages.

Advanced Development
Websites go way beyond just HTML and CSS, we introduce things like JavaScript, PHP and SQL to make a website a lot more advanced than just an information website. You'll learn quickly that a website will improve on it's visitors when people can sign up and even when there is more functions on the website such as a Password Generator.
When a visitor can get more out of the website they will feel more inclined to re-visit the website!

Some Basic Information

History
The internet was created by a man named Tim Berners-Lee who worked for European Organization for Nuclear Research in the 1990's where he developed what we know as the World Wide Web. He made the first release only two months after going into development in 1991, it then became available to the public on August 6th 1991. You can consider this the beginning of website development since it was literally non-existent before this date.
You can view how the internet has evolved over the years including the introduction of new Website Browsers, Languages and much more by visiting Evolution of the Web.

Companies
The goal of any website developer isn't to just make enough to live but to make enough to never have to work again. You can be a solo developer or be employed by a website development company. Many companies have come and gone over the years but what you will find is there is some companies out there who have been around since the beginning or not long after it!

Website Development and Design companies are probably one of the best paid people online today because of their significance on the web. Lets face the facts if you want to make it big online then you'll need to have a website. Do you have a business? Then you will want to reach out to more clients by having a website because everyone uses the internet unless they are a technology dinosaur.

Big Drop
Big Drop is a company which was founded in 2011. They consist of a 15 personnel including designers, developers, UI/UX specialists and more. Their total team is anything from 50 to 250 employees. They are one of the most well know web development teams on the net today.

Lounge Lizard
Lounge Lizard has been a company since 1998 making it one of the oldest website development companies. The company has an employee count anywhere between 10 and 50 paid staff. They specialise in Web and Mobile development and charge between $100 - $150 an hour.

Intechnic
Intechnic is also a very old company being founded in 1997. They charge an average of $150 - $200 an hour for their work. The team is believed to be between 10 and 50 employees. They have developed websites for Government of Victoria, Paramount and Disney.

Lead to Conversion.
Lead to Conversion is a younger company which was founded in 2006. They consist of around 35 - 50 developers and charge roughly $100 -$150 an hour. Some of their clients consist of Cleveland City Forge and Wyndham Hotels and Resorts.

Developers
Once you begin to build on your experience and get building websites based off your own designs and ideas you can pretty much consider yourself a website developer but that's just the beginning. The internet is always evolving and web developers along with it. Every day you will wake up to learn something new and that's just how it is. A lot of people consider themselves Website Developer Guru's but that can rage in a lot of things. It's easier to pick one topic and stick with that as your core development skill and then once you have mastered it learn another.

You will see a lot of website developers who run their own website with a portfolio who try to pick of jobs, this can be seen on Hack Forums too. These are the small guys looking to make their portfolio bigger. It's not all about the money but for guys like these getting jobs here will help them if they apply for a company as their portfolio has gotten bigger and bigger meaning they have more knowledge and have learned more.
