Web development is the work involved in developing a website for the Internet (World Wide Web) or an intranet (a private network). Web development can range from developing a simple single static page of plain text to complex web-based internet applications (web apps), electronic businesses, and social network services. A more comprehensive list of tasks to which web development commonly refers, may include web engineering, web design, web content development, client liaison, client-side/server-side scripting, web server and network security configuration, and e-commerce development.
Among web professionals, “web development” usually refers to the main non-design aspects of building websites: writing markup and coding. Web development may use content management systems (CMS) to make content changes easier and available with basic technical skills.
For larger organizations and businesses, web development teams can consist of hundreds of people (web developers) and follow standard methods like Agile methodologies while developing websites. Smaller organizations may only require a single permanent or contracting developer, or secondary assignment to related job positions such as a graphic designer or information systems technician. Web development may be a collaborative effort between departments rather than the domain of a designated department. There are three kinds of web developer specialization: front-end developer, back-end developer, and full-stack developer. Front-end developers are responsible for behavior and visuals that run in the user browser, while back-end developers deal with the servers.

Advantages of web app development
Web apps are developed with programming languages such as HTML and CSS, which are well known among IT professionals.
Unlike native apps, a single web app is able to reach out to all devices. It’s programmed to run on any operating system.
These apps run on the device’s own web browser through a simple URL.
They don’t need to be downloaded and installed from app stores like Google Play or Apple’s App Store.
They may also open websites. This means that they don’t require to be updated in the way common apps do.
The most important benefit you can draw off from it is its price. Web app development is the cheaper kind of app development.
Web app’s development time is lower.
Disadvantages of creating a web app
The website must, of course, be programmed in a way it can be shown regardless of the device’s operating system. If it’s not a responsive website, you could experience problems when displaying it on iOS, Android, or Windows Phone.
You will have to spend the money you intended to save developing the application in improving your website.
If your website undergoes any kind of issue, your application will be in trouble too. Don’t assume that your web app will work perfectly if you don’t have a quality corporate website.
An Internet connection will be an absolute must to run it.
It will also lose visibility as it will not be on display in the stores.
There will be some access restrictions as to certain hardware features of the device it’s running on.
At Yeeply we believe that before developing an app project you must clear up any doubts that may arise over two fundamental questions:
