Question by Billy X: What is the difference between web programming, development and web application?
Answer by Web Programmer
I would define web development as the process of building a website. From planning, to design, coding, testing and implementation. The whole process.
Web programming, would be a part of web development, where you are actually coding the individual web pages. This term is used more when building a dynamic website with a scripting language like PHP, rather than just building a web page with html.
A web application would be a program/script incorporated into a website that ads interaction. A website with text and html only would not be called an application. Some examples that I would consider to be a web application would be:
a property listing search on a real estate website
a classified listing website
a project management tool
an shopping cart or online store
