The programs that make up the Front-End Web Development

In web development, there are two classifications of languages and programs used in order to build a website. These are known as the Front-end web development and its counterpart, the backend web development. The Front-end web development focuses more on the appearance and the functionality of the website while the Back-end web development on the other hand takes on the task of keeping the data exchanged between the browser and the application in check. There are three known languages and methods used in Front-end web development namely jQuery, AJAX and HTML5. Each of these languages will be discussed below.




jQuery is a library for JavaScript which is often used together with HTML in order to simplify the client-side scripting of the said markup language. jQuery is an open source software which is free for users to access and use for the designing of their websites. The jQuery UI has several sets of codes to be used which web development Sunshine Coast can use in order to achieve specific effects for their websites such as interaction, widgets, effects and even utilities. jQuery helps websites in keeping the visitors interested with the effects it brings.


AJAX is neither a language nor a program but it is the end result of combining different web development methods in order to come up with a single technique which creates asynchronous web applications. AJAX stands for Asynchronous JavaScript and XML and what it basically does is that it governs the data being exchanged between the server and the web page without having to change the appearance of the current page the website is in. AJAX works not only with JavaScript and XML. In fact, it can also be manipulated to work together with CSS and HTML.


HTML5 is the fifth version of the famous markup language everyone has come to know over the past few years. One of the most noteworthy key features HTML5 has over its predecessors is its ability to add media in the form of syntax as well as scalable vector graphics, mathematical markup language which makes media of different types easier to be added and displayed on the web site. Today, HTML5 has gained immense popularity and is employed by different websites since the year of its release for its flexibility as well as its other features that has forever changed the way how websites look and work.
