Website Development Process
Identify the Needs of Clients
The first and most essential step is observing the needs of clients. what do they require? Recognition and analyzing what exactly they want help in giving the best resolution they want. Clients having some technical background it gets very easier to understand their needs and technicality they want in their projects. Some clients are don't have an idea about the web world so we ask questions to them for clarification to help them better.
Every website is different from the other. So at this stage, we research and find as much more information as possible for the respective project. An ecommerce website selling men's clothing is different from an online grocery store. Hence thorough research and analysis about the business, competitors, target audience, the project's motto, etc. provide the knowledge required to build a perfect website.
A perfect plan backed by thorough research & analysis is a map towards the goal. At this step, we define sprints, deliverables, and Gantt charts with predicted timeline & resources to achieve it. Different other major decisions like wireframing, layout planning, UI/UX, preparing the sitemap, choosing the right technology stack, it means we use technologies like CakePHP, react js, angular js, etc. are also made at this step.
Once we have the sitemap and wireframes, it's now the time to create design every page of the website. At this step, designers give life to the approved wireframes with logos, graphics, background color, animations, typography, drop-down menus, buttons, and more based on the requirements of the project. Your design is should be unique and lavish.
This is the stage where designs approved by the client transformed into a working model. The process of development can be between two parts i.e. backend and frontend.
What is the backend & frontend?
Backend means the development of the server site that is the soul of frontend and creates and makes the UI into a working website. The backend developers develop the database, server-side application, integrates business logic, and everything that works under the hood.
Testing & Deployment
Before deploying the website to the server, it undergoes several rigorous tests to make sure that there are no errors or bugs. Several tests such as usability, functionality, performance, compatibility, etc. that ensure that the website is ready to launch are performed by the quality team. Once the quality team gives a green flag to the website, it is deployed to the server using the File Transfer Protocol (FTP).
