A Developer is a specialist in technical aspects of code development and is an expert in the use of the Content Management System (CMS). Developers utilise pre-existing module code or create new code as required. They create the functional structure of the site, and populate it with the supplied content as HTML and also create the styling CSS. They understand best practice for development and are able to take approved content and design (along with a brief) to create a functional responsive website that is also extensible.
 
A web developer knows how to build a website from the bottom up: they can create custom code to accommodate a client’s individual needs, developing everything from the site layout to features and functions on the webpage.
 
A good developer should be trained and experienced with a holistic understanding of how development, design and usability combine to make a quality website, be proficient in HTML & CSS, programming languages such as JavaScript & PHP and have knowledge of good usability design.
