Since the mid of 1990's web development has been one of the fastest growing industries in the world. In 1995, there were less than 1000 web development companies in the US. But by 2005 there were already over 30,000 such companies, and it was only the United States. Growth of this industry pushes major companies to sell goods and services to their customers in an automative mode.
Besides business process, the cost of site development and hosting has dropped to a very big extent during that time. Instead of costing tens of thousands of dollars, as it was the time of early websites, you can now develop a simple web site even for free, depending on the complexity and content.
Small companies are now able to make web design accessible as small companies and individuals further fueling the growth of the web development industry. Also, apart from web development platforms and tools, there are many systems available to the public pursuant to the free provision of aid in development. Known example is the LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP), which is usually distributed free of charge. The mere fact this is manifested by many people around the world to create new sites daily and thus contributing to increase the popularity of web development. Another factor was the growth of easy-to-use WYSIWYG Web development software such as WebDev, Adobe Dreamweaver or Microsoft Expression Studio. Using these programs, almost anyone can create an independent and unique Web page in a matter of minutes. HyperText Markup Language (HTML), or other programming languages is not even required, but is recommended by professionals.
Generation of web development tools uses the strong growth in LAMP and NET Microsoft technology to ensure the web as a way to run applications online. Currently web developers help to deliver applications of web services, as that traditionally is only available exactly the application on your desktop.
Instead of running executable code on a local computer users interact with online applications to create new content. This has created new methods in the field of communication and allowed many opportunities to decentralize information and media distribution. Users now interact with applications from many locations, and are not tied to a specific workstation for their application environment.
Examples of a profound change in the field and communications tools of trade are led by web development and include e-commerce. Auction sites functioning online such as eBay have changed the way consumers purchase goods and services. And Internet resellers such as Amazon.com and Buy.com (among many-many others) turned bargains hunting experience for many shoppers. Another good example of transformation communication led by web development blog. Web applications such as MovableType WordPress and created easily implemented blog environments for individual Web sites. Open Source Content systems like Alfresco, yak Typo3, Xoops, Joomla!, Drupal and distributed in web development of new forms of interaction and communication are available.
In addition, web development has moved to a new phase of Internet communication. Sites in the Network Computer is not just a tool for business and trade, but the use to communicate. Web sites, one way or another such Facebook and Twitter provide users a platform to communicate freely. This new form of web communication is also changing e- commerce on the number of hits and online advertising.
