Behind the Scenes Coding

As I have stated before, I have an amateur amount of experience when it comes to website design and HTML coding. I have a general understanding of design work combined with the basic technical knowledge that goes behind it. Needless to say, that’s why I’m not a graphic designer here at DDA. But as it is of increasing interest to me, and because this is my blog, I want to discuss it.

Let’s take a look at the following very basic HTML code:

<a href=””>Website Design and Development</a>

This code, as nearly anyone familiar with HTML will recognize, is the basic structure for creating a website link. Further behind that are CSS styles or coding to dictate font sizes, colors, backgrounds, borders, margins, paddings, and more. For those unfamiliar with all the mumbo jumbo, this is what you eventually see:

Website Design and Development

This is one of the most basic and easiest of codings in HTML to create or recognize, yet the user never sees what goes on behind the scenes, which is the coding I provided above. All the user sees is a website with links, pictures, videos, etc. But behind that is a complicated string of codes that build the end interface. I won’t pretend to know much about all of it, but for me, it’s fun to see how all the coding and information works together to create the end product. Luckily our designers and programmers here at DDA have the technical knowledge to understand the most complex codes around to provide you with top-notch designs and efficient functionality.
