Webdevelopment is a broad term for creating a website to be published on the internet or intranet. It includes design, content-creation, usage of scripting languages, network configuration, security-handling, performance-management (like speed and stability), user-experience and many other tasks.
Often a website is being maintained by different specialists; subjects like security and Search Engine Optimalisation (SEO) are not primairily enclosed in webdevelopment as things are changing rapidly, which generally means that a lot of research is involved to keep up with the dynamics of the internet.
There are three kinds of webdevelopers (webdevs): front-end, back-end and full-stack.
Back-end (web)devs have the task to make the website run smoothly, fast and stable. They manage the hosting services, databases, security and more complex applications. They use scripting languages like Python, Ruby, Java, PHP etc.
A full-stack webdev is a person who knows a lot about front-end ánd back-end scripting and can work completely solitairy.
