Front-End Development

What is front-end development?

Alternatively termed “client-side development”, front-end development is the implementation of web design through the conversion of data to a graphical interface, producing HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language), CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) and JavaScript so that users can view and interact directly with that data. It is where the entire web has to link to, and so is the most significant part of web development.

The functions for which front-end development is primarily used on include the building of responsive websites in accordance with the requirements of the modern audience, upgrading the outlook and representation of a company, development of UI and UX designs, the creation of tools that enhance interactive features for any online store, and of secure and bug-free products to increase online traffic.

Front-end development can be a challenging task, as the tools and techniques used for the creation of the front end of a website are consistently subject to alteration, so as to keep up with the ever-updating online requirements of the modern web.

The Process of Front-End Development

After having gained a thorough comprehension of the requirements of the company, the brand identity and voice, and their target demographic, the development team at Digicoms begins with the processing of acquired data to put into action the strategies that were carefully planned prior. The developers will take the set of requirements and a mockup from the UI/UX development process, and create the image by employing coding languages, each with its own set of functions:

  • HTML
    It provides overall framework of how the site will look, affording developers the use of hyperlinks (text that links to another webpage). The markup language implies that text can be converted to images, tables, links, etc.
  •  CSS
    This controls how your website looks by maintaining style sheets that are sort of layered atop other style rules, and are triggered based on other inputs like screen resolution and size of the device.
  •  JavaScript
    JavaScript can convert a static HTML page into a dynamic interface by manipulating a web page in reaction to happenings like user input. Moreover, it can retrieve content from the web and respond to server-side events, consequently transforming the web page experience for the user into a dynamic one.

Lastly, our developers will test the code and check for compatibility across a number of browsers and a variety of devices, so that it has a vast outreach and consistently efficient functioning.
