I'd like to know
Re: What Is The Difference Between A Web Designer And A Web Developer? by JohnDoe2015: 11:18am On Jun 15, 2015
web developer = technical part/ like login, send mail, etc
web designer = interface builder

do you really want to learn web programmin?
if yes, I have the solution to your answer..
1. the truth is with the huge sum of money you are going to pay @NIIT, you won't still be fulfilled becos programing requires personal training and motivation.
2. truth, everyone says motivation, personal training but the place of a mentor can not be under estimated.. so to learn quick and fast, you also need a mentor
3. you also need programmers, people of like minds who want to learn same thing or doing same thing so you can share ideas while you both learn..
well you might think.

I know I have told you the truth in good faith, but I have a solution...
I am also a learner and have been into web for 2years now, I want to help you, help myself and others who r interested in a group of 5programmers where we will teach ourselves well, buy materials ourselves online and learn at a fast pace with losing huge sum of money to NIIT.
pls whatsapp me on 2349033863912.
note, am not collecting any money from you.

Simple and short, dnt b decievd. A developer designs, strategizes, and creates complete codes. On the other a designer only plans a code structure, builds layout and edit existing codes for a new layout.

Nice thread
Re: What Is The Difference Between A Web Designer And A Web Developer? by Sweetyie(f): 8:59am On Jun 20, 2015
First, it is important to really think about each job on it’s own.

A web designer uses graphics and graphic design software (think Adobe Photoshop,Illustrator and InDesign) to create a look for the web. This design is then married with coding to bring it to life online.

The designer may not always be the person writing the code and in some cases can work independently of the team who will take a website design live.

Much of a designer’s job is creative and uses both intuition and imagination, often characteristics of people who are considered right-brained. People in this field may continue their educations in a variety of fields but are most commonly drawn to graphic design and the arts. Designers collect work portfolios to showcase their projects for potential employers.

The best designers have a strong grasp on a variety of concepts including color and typography, spacial relationships, audience and user experience.




web developer builds the backbone of websites, typically from the ground up, and knows languages specific to the web. HTML, Javascript, JQuery and CSS are among the tools in their kit. Developers, historically, don’t focus on making something look visually appealing but create websites with clean code and that are technically sound.

Web developers are often thought of as left-brained workers. Skills from technical ability and thinking to logic are an essential part of their repertoires. Web developers may have degrees in a variety of fields such as computer science or programming. Most employers will require a portfolio during the hiring process.

The best developers are often detail-oriented and are keen on specifics.

Simple, a Designer works with the front-end (html,css and a lil bit of javascript) only, while a developer works with both the front-end and back-end (php ,database etc) most times this guy is often referred to as a "programmer.

Re: What Is The Difference Between A Web Designer And A Web Developer? by henryobinna(m): 9:30am On Jun 20, 2015
most of you here are not getting what/who a web designer is, in actual sense they both are the same. I'll explain.




@Op, a web designer is also a web developer who develops the interface(front end) while the person you called a web developer is also a developer who designs the back end.
now here's what you should have asked, what's the difference between a front end developer(web designer) and a back end developer.

to clarify you, a web designer is not one who uses graphic softwares, that's absolutely not true.
that's a wack explanation, people who use graphic design softwares are purely graphic designers while web designer uses mostly html/html5, CSS n javascript(most use jquery, like my self).

you can ask me questions

oga, they're both developers and programmers.

the difference is designer is front end developer while the other is back end.
while one whp does both is called a full stack developer/programmer

Just learn Joomla. You can design and program a fully functional website with Joomla.

You don't have to know intricacies of php and javascript...

Its more like a click and run software for website development.
