Web Programming Services You Can Employ for Effective Web Development

Every internet user is familiar with the term WWW or World Wide Web. The World Wide Web is nothing but a system of interlinked hypertext documents. These documents are generally written in Hyper Text Markup Language or HTML. HTML supports internal and external linking and you can link your document with graphics, audio, video etc. These days we can’t think of a world without internet. People share information, communicate with each other, market products or services through internet.

Web programming is the soul of Web. Without programming, nothing can work on the internet. It is the building block of every website. A web programmer writes codes and utilizes programming tools like CSS, XML, Javascript, HTML and any other programming languages that are necessary to develop a website.

Here are some of the popular web programming services that web developers use to create complex and feature rich websites. Using these web programming tools they write cleaner codes and help your site rank high in search engine results.

  1. AJAX- The full form of AJAX is Asynchronous JavaScript and XML. It’s a method of developing interrelated web developments that process user requests instantly. AJAX uses several programming tools.
    • For presentation purpose it uses Dynamic HTML (DHTML) and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS).
    • For data manipulation and data display it uses Extensible Markup Language (XML).
    • For dynamic display of data and interaction purpose it uses Document Object Model (DOM).
    • It also uses JavaScript to synchronize all the functions.

    Google map is an Ajax based application. That is why it allows you to manipulate the data on the map. In Google map, you can immediately find any location from a global map and add favorites to your most searched places.

  2. Web 2.0 Programming- Web 2.0 programming is the most popular trend these days. It offers better user interface and provides more freedom to the users. Web 2.0 is also known as “social bookmarking.” Some of the popular Web 2.0 sites are Furl, Blinklist, Del.icio.us, Blogmarks, Kaboodle etc. Social bookmarking improves search engine ranking. When a number of web users like a website and bookmark it, that site gets a top spot in search engine ranking.
  3. CGI (Common Gateway Interface)- With the help of CGI a server can send or fetch data to databases, documents and other programs. The core programming language in CGI is Perl. When you search for something on a website, CGI inspects the content and gives an appropriate response. Websites like Facebook, Yahoo and WikiPedia use CGI as their web development platform.

Web programming is all about adding functionalities to a website. With the help of programming, you can customize the features of your website and give your users an enjoyable experience.

Web programming is a complicated process. If you want to develop a functional and user friendly website, hire a professional web programming company for the job. However, before you hire a company, make sure that they have the infrastructure to provide you quality service. Meet with their programmers and discuss your requirements with them. If you are satisfied with their knowledge, only then you should hand over your project.

So You Want to Be a Web Developer?

Ah, well, welcome to my world!

Work from home, when you want to. $150 an hour potential income. Work part time at full time wages.
Well, maybe 10 years ago.

So much has changed since I put up my first website back in the early 90s. Back then, the Internet was nothing more than a few pictures and some text, not much to it. The hosts were all UNIX boxes and you had to know how to make a directory, upload files, and the set folder and file permissions before anyone could see it!

Jump forward almost 20 years; the technology has changed so much that my 13 year old son could put up his own site. No worries about knowing where that file is, what makes it work, or how it could be improved. Such is the case with millions of other people who have access to the internet.

So why would someone want to pay you for something they could do themselves? Easy. They might be able to put up a picture and write some text, but it won’t look like all the other sites out there. Why? Easy. Because they were written by a professional, who has studied and learned what makes the internet tick and how it works.

So that’s the first obstacle you must overcome is to learn the internet, learn how to talk to the world!

The next obstacle is clients; you have to somehow get someone that wants a website, or a better one. Many people make up signs and post them beside the road with a phone number. Some use classified to search for people wanting a website, and then send them information about themselves; examples of past work and beg them for the job. Others don’t really have to look for work. Because they have done so much work and made their customers happy, they in turn refer someone to them.

Which leaves the last and final piece of advice, how much to charge. People are funny about websites. They want a professional website, but they want it for as little as they absolutely can get away with. When I was searching online classifieds for work, I can’t tell you how many time the headlines read:
“I need a Website, prefer student or beginner to pad profile” or something in that manner. In other words, “I need a website, I don’t want to pay you, but you can tell everyone that you made it for me”. Which in my opinion is just complete and udder disrespect for the trade! Then when you do find someone who respects you enough to pay you, they want to pay minimum wage. Even though it may have cost you as much as a Jr Collage degree for online courses, books, web space and advertising, it’s still only worth minimum wage to them.

So there is some advice from a professional web developer to someone who wants to be one. I have learned a lot about people, technology, and most of all financial security in my career. I hope that should you decide this is what you want to do, you will give the community, you and your customers the respect that this trade deserves.

Writing Quality Content About Web Development Interactivity In Portal Forums

Okay so, over the years I’ve written a number of articles on Internet topics, and to do this I have to do a lot of research. I’ve read countless books from the best of breed in the industry. Not just those who are actually doing it, but also the research papers from the computer sciences putting forth their philosophical theories and math. One thing that I do not see enough of are articles that help website designers and developers integrate everything. Let’s spend a few moments to talk about this.

If you have some background in building websites or web development, there is a specific topic that I can’t find a whole lot of information on, although I do recall going to an Internet business seminar in Las Vegas once and one of the symposium breakout sessions had to do with the best ways to manage Internet forums on Internet portal websites. Although I was busy and couldn’t attend that particular session because it conflicted with another one, now I wish I had. You see there’s a lot to know about the psychology of keeping a community together and preventing cat fights.

Perhaps you’ve experienced this where you write something on an online Internet forum, and immediately someone comes by and calls you something terrible, rather than discussing the topic or debating the point. When this happens, feelings are hurt, people’s reputations’ are flamed, and it creates a negative user experience. It causes people to no longer value the website, or wish to participate. This ruins the chances for solid interactivity, building of community, and increasing traffic. Whereas it is true that a little bit of controversy does build traffic, the wrong type of bickering and bantering on Internet forums destroys all that and more.

In fact, it quickly becomes an issue with the brand name of the website, and sometimes people get so upset that they hunt down the Internet forum organizer and start in on them, or start complaining about the other party to them, and demanding that various posts get deleted. That’s unfortunate because as soon as you start deleting posts, everyone realizes what’s going on, and everyone claims their free speech has being violated. No matter that a portal website does not necessarily guarantee free speech, especially personal attacks.

No matter how much you put in your user agreements that people must get along, they will always push the limits and beg for forgiveness, next thing you know you spend all your time dealing with various personalities and conflicts as they drag you into their drama. There is a right way and wrong way to handle all this, and we need more online quality content and carefully constructed and authored articles to help website developers with these issues.

If you know anything about this topic or you have a degree in psychology, there are plenty of Internet readers who would love to read what you have to say. Please consider all this and think on it.
