Website Programming and Assembly
Once all the aspects of the website have been designed, the programmer can step in to create the necessary templates, database, and programming. Each of these three components is interrelated as programming takes information from the database and uses a template to display it within a browser. Most websites will have anywhere from 1-3 templates for different pages.
During the programming phase, we ensure that the code and programming of your website meets W3C compliance to maximize the efficiency and accessibility of your website to optimize the user experience.
Although, website creative design needs to understand website programming, the website programming process is a different discipline in which the details about PHP, MySQL databases and tables, HTML5, and CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) are necessary.
HTML5 is certainly the new standard in website development for 2013. The previous versions of HTML were released to the Internet industry in 1999, which is quite old for a industry full of new technologies. As you can imagine as with any computer programming, there will always be updates for a work in progress. The good news is the major browsers like FireFox, Google Chrome, Apple Safari, Microsoft Internet Explorer all support HTML5 with all the elements and API’s.
Once the templates are designed, the database is built, and the programming is created, the content can be assembled and loaded into the database through a content management system (CMS) such as WordPress, Magento, or Drupal. This allows you to manage a website without necessarily having an understanding of HTML code. The content includes items such as text copy, photos, videos, and other media files.
