Development is often conjoined with web design, but the two disciplines are really distinct. Design is focused on the visual appearance and user interactions with the website. Development focuses on bringing those design decisions to life and making sure that the connective tissue that design needs for functionality is working.
Connection to Our Services
The umbrella of web development covers both plugin development and theme development but also includes website architecture, integrations, and security issues. At Pixel Jar we blur the line between front-end and back-end development. Though each of our developers has a particular proficiency, all are able to work confidently on both sides of development.
Because we’re experts in writing code we also like to talk about code. We perform code reviews, site reviews, and can consult on your web project to help you over a rough patch in your own web development. We’re always excited to see what our clients are working on and a second set of eyes can see things that you might have missed.
Posts in Web Development
Posts in this section focus on web development in its purest sense. Many of our completed projects have an interesting feature or exposed us to some new information that was share-worthy. We’ll also talk about issues that encompass all of design like tools, definitions and new methodologies.
