Web development is website design combined with back-end programming. The typical goal of web development is to produce a website that is database driven. Some of the largest websites in the world rely on databases which allow the site owner to add, change, or delete what is stored in their database without having to open each individual file. The programming embedded in the website then takes care of updating the hundreds, if not thousands, of web pages.

However web development is an evolutionary process for every individual client. Some business may require more basic catalog style website's whereas; larger businesses may feel that an Intranet or an eCommerce style web design is more appropriate.
