Category: Web Development

According to Wikipedia, Web development is a broad term for the work involved in developing a web site for the Internet (World Wide Web) or an intranet (a private network). Web development can range from developing the simplest static single page of plain text to the most complex web-based internet applications (or just ‘web apps’) electronic businesses, and social network services. A more comprehensive list of tasks to which 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.

With SharePoint and other Microsoft technologies, development is a broad subject matter which is constantly evolving.

Therefore, the Web development category is very broad too, and is full of handy tips, tricks and advise. Check out some of the Step by Step blogs or learn with our eBooks, How To videos and Webinars.
