I’m Anthony also known as dapperAuteur on Free Code Camp and GitHub.

Thank you for joining me on this short hike about web design vs web
development.

The web design is the how. The web development is the what.

Today we’re going to discuss how they work together to build a beautiful experience for you and everyone else that visits the internet.

The web designer, what they do will impact the ‘How’ the UI and UX looks and feels.

The web developer, what they do will impact ‘What’ the UX and UI will do once you start to click on buttons.

An example is the login process.

A designer will decide where the login process will start on the page.

A developer will decide what that process will entail. Are you logging in with your email address, username or social media account?

Another example is building a car. A designer will choose what color the car is. Is it red, white, or blue? Cloth or leather seats? Tinted windows?

A developer will decide if it’s a V6 or V8 engine. Is it a gasoline, hybrid
or all electric vehicle?

Together, they work to build a beautiful experience for you and everyone else that visits the internet.

Again, a web designer is the how and the web developer is the what.

We’re busy people who learn to code, then practice by building projects for nonprofits. Learn Full-stack JavaScript, build a portfolio, and get great references with our open source community.
