Website programming – is one of the most important stages of contemporary website development. It is closely connected with all other stages of website development or upgrade and also with page proofing and content filling of the website. Sometimes the programming stage can be performed simultaneously with other stages.
All activities performed on the website are done with the help of the CMS which needs flexible settings and adaptation due to website needs. More often a new website needs its own CMS with its own number of modules and functions, which is then used to create and develop the website itself and to program and configure appropriate level of performance. But sometimes we have to develop a content management system from a scratch.
Website programming implies usage of several web-technologies in one project, that allow a website to perform its goals to its best. The most popular technologies used in the website development currently are:
- PHP – which is a server programming language used to program the algorithms of scripts, as well as data processing. PHP processes are performed on the server and cannot be visible to the user.
- AJAX – is a technology of transmitting and receiving the data from the server without page reload.
- MVC – basic technology of interaction between the technological processes and a CMS.
The key role of programming is to unite all applied technologies into one synergic system on the website and provide users with convenient interface, where he/she can use all functions of the website.
Quite often programming implies integration of the processes on the website with other systems, for example, with an accounting system 1C or products synchronization. Sometimes it is also a CRM system. Sometimes a website can be a part of one big system and play an essential role in the system’s overall performance.
The advantages of such solutions are those, that provide a possibility to use the system remotely without necessity to spend more money on synchronization and data transferring. Works on creation and configuration of such integrated systems are called programming.
