Web Development and Coding Services
I really do enjoy the coding aspect of web design and development much more than the designing. So much so that I am going to be shifting my focus to software and app development. I hope to have my first Android app up and running before too long, and I will post more about it after that comes to fruition.
Just to break it down for anyone wondering, in order to understand how the different parts come together to form a website -
- CSS - this is used to style the HTML markup, and stands for cascading style sheets. Like HTML it is considered a markup language and not actual coding. CSS is what tells the browser what color an HTML element should be, or where on the page it should be shown. CSS combined with HTML are all you need to create a fully functioning website.
- SQL - is a query language (it actually stands for structured query language), and is generally what is used to interact with and store information to a database. PHP (or another server side language) "talks to" SQL which then either retrieves, enters, or deletes data from the database. PHP can then use the SQL data to determine how the webpage should look and behave, and what content should be shown. This is what retrieves your username and password from the database, for example, when you log into a website. Technically what happens is, you enter your username and password and then PHP asks SQL to retrieve this information from the database which it then checks to make sure that the information matches and that a user is who they say they are. If everything checks out okay, then SQL will look up your preferences (likes, dislikes, friends, etc...), and hand that data over to PHP which will then serve you the relevant content based on the data that you have chosen to store with that particular website.
There are many other coding languages in use on the web, especially for server side coding. Those I have listed though are the most basic, and are the languages that I currently have experience in. If you are curious as to the level of my experience in these languages, then the best method would be for you to view my work which consists of this website and my others (which again are discussed on my Portfolio Page).
