According to Wikipedia, software development covers ‘computer programming, documenting, testing, and bug fixing.’ In short, it includes everything that can happen within the realm of conceptualising and initiating functional software.

If we go by this definition, the domain includes mighty bits like Programming Languages, Algorithms, Data Structures, and what not! You need to sit in front of a computer and incessantly experiments things with these tools. ‘Software engineering’ has been mothered by this very domain, don’t you think?

However, over the years, a new term has outpaced the concept. ‘Web development’ as we know it, has become mainstream as of now. It is in demand and every professional working in the digital space is harping on about it.

Web Development Company

Unfortunately, it still is a vague term. Web developers sometimes belong to organisational categories like product management and at other times to design. Where did it go wrong? What’s the confusion about? Where’s the missing link?

Here’s the clue – what do you call a person who writes codes?

Now, a software development company in India will employ professionals who can ‘write’ the following:

  • Database queries
  • Backend codes.
  • HTML
  • CSS
  • JavaScript.
  • SQL

Interestingly, professionals in this field cannot limit their speciality to just one amongst these tasks. They have to know it all. Or to say, they will eventually end up doing all the tasks. They are the creators of templates; they are the ones who concern about terms like ‘backend’ and ‘frontend’

Found the missing link?

Yes, web development arises from the very core of software development itself! Let’s go back to the times when Yahoo! was talking about ‘web development’ and had even framed a role for the potential domain. The company was trying to make a mark in the changing times.

In a sense, Yahoo! was the company that actually inspired the evolution of every web development company in Kolkata, other parts of the country and even beyond. By the same token, terms like ‘frontend engineer’ also came up. This was the time when Facebook and Twitter didn’t hold the reigns of the digital world and Google was known as a search engine.

The concept has come of age.

Yahoo!’s contribution has given birth to present-day methodologies like progressive enhancement and interfaces like open APIs. Frontend already received its glory a decade ago. Today, we are talking about UI, UX, and web interfaces that are utilitarian, which is nothing but a payoff of the past attempts.

So, now you know, web development has ‘engineering’ in every bit of its existence. It is software development which pumps as the domain’s heart. The rest of the creation keeps on developing dynamically on this very base. Thus, a person who creates web application should also be a master hand at software development.

At present times, when there’s a digital war going on between the search engines and social media networking sites, it is essential that you understand the two fields are overlapping. Do let us know what you feel about it.
