Early Days of Web Development

Postby Rusnak25 » Tue Jul 15, 2008 8:12 am

In the early days of web development, there were two types of web development tool: those used by coders (the specialists who understood the technologies underlying web pages) and the visual software tools which functioned in a manner similar to word processing and page layout programs and were used by non-specialists and inexperienced web developers.

The visual programs (which included Virginia website design) had a very poor reputation among web professionals who found that the code produced by these programs was clumsy, verbose and inefficient.

About ten years ago (recognizing the need to satisfy both types of user), Macromedia, the owners started making efforts to attract serious web developers to Virginia website design. They addressed the code issue by including tools which would clean up inefficiencies in automatically-generated code and purchasing and bundling a coding utility called with them.

They also enhanced their code environment with sophisticated features like line-numbering, colour-coding and code-hints and added other code-friendly features to supplement the visual development environment such as the tag selector which displays the HTML tags representing the objects on the page.
