Web development includes the programming for eCommerce sites, blogging sites, content management systems and the coding of websites from the ground up. Mobile websites are also included in web development especially since this day and age there are so many mobile users of the internet.

A. A web developer is someone who knows how to code websites in various computer languages like PHP, HTML, CSS, Java Script and more. They usually use code editors like Dreamweaver, NotePad Plus Plues or TextMate if they are on a mac. A Web developer can take any picture or mockup that you create of a website and turn it into a live functioning website.
Q. What is the difference of web developer and web designer?

What is WordPress?
WordPress is a content management system that far supersedes any online CMS. We highly recommend this system to our clients that are looking for an alternative to a custom made website. If you were to pay a web developer to program a website like WordPress CMS you would be looking at about a $75,000 price tag. You can learn WordPress fairly quickly with no programming knowledge. In our web development strategy course we go in depth into the WordPress system for our students. As with any CMS there is a learning curve to making it work for you. We take the mystery out of learning WordPress and walk you though the process step by step.
While using WordPress sometimes you just need a quick answer to your question. That is why we designed the section of our website just for WordPress tutorials. We cover everything from logging into the WordPress dashboard and the login URL that will get you to the WordPress login page. Take advantage of the search feature on our website to help you find what you’re looking for. If you cannot find it then contact me

Blogspot vs WordPress
Blogger vs WordPress
BlogSpot and Blogger are the same thing. I have had to convert a lot of bloggers to the WordPress CMS from this sytem. If you want to stay with blogger then keep in mind if you plan on doing it very long you will run into issues with space and functionality. BlogSpot is a great way to get started but why not just start it off right with a WordPress CMS? Save yourself time, money and aggrevation by starting with a WordPress CMS, you will get there sooner or later. Drupal vs WordPress Drupal is a lot more complicated than WordPress to learn. The learning curve to WordPress will come quicker to most people and the ability to migrate plugin and functionality like sliders, jquery and more are a lot easier and more efficient on a WordPress website. In your dashboard you have access free WordPress themes although I do not recommend using them. They are nice to help you come up with ideas about your own theme or WordPress template. You can preview thousands of them. This will help your WordPress web designer as well as you show them the themes that you are interested in. There are literally tons of WordPress widgets that you can take advantage of. You can utilize search bars to making ads for AdSense and other money making revenues. We teach all about this in depth in our strategy courses.
