Frontend development

The frontend is the visual element of the website, the part that visitors encounter when clicking on a website. Truly superb frontend development will help your site to go far, both in terms of ranking and user experience, as it simply shows the potential of what the site can achieve.

The visible part of a website

The frontend builds bridges between codes and design. It is the part of web development that transforms and translates codes into visual images, text and videos – broadly speaking to digital aesthetics. Thus, insight is required in both parts where the creative meets the functional, for optimal interaction.

Developers Shore’s development team has a great deal of knowledge and the ability to familiarise themselves with your train of thought in terms of what your particular website should or could look like. We always have good and intensive discussions with our customers to create an appealing, high-ranking website that is easy to navigate – where the codes delivered both look good on the surface and function in the backend.

Programming language

Frontend developers can use several different programming languages for their work, of which HTML, CSS and JavaScript are the most common.

JavaScript is commonly used within frontend, as this programming language is particularly useful for providing dynamic web functions and interaction on the website. Likewise, the script is a positive aid to the CSS and HTML languages. Consequently, visual segments, such as images, text, animations and videos, together with links, can give your website an even better appearance, quality and credibility.

It is important to remember not to confuse JavaScript with Java as these are two widely differing programming languages. Java is primarily used for backend development (i.e. that part of the website

not visible to the viewer). The common denominator is that both are versatile and powerful and can be adapted to a variety of different projects and operating systems.

Our web developers are well versed in the different technologies and programming languages so can quickly simplify and structure your website at a customised level.

Some examples of our areas of knowledge

Frontend may involve different projects and processes depending on the target group and the desired design in the environment where it will be used. Our work in frontend development involves, among other things, the following, although our customer projects may branch out significantly more than this:

• Proof of concept
• Frontend optimisation
• Responsive design

Proof of concept

Proof of concept is a method that uses the latest web development solutions to create a prototype and carries out testing to a lesser extent. It is good to see whether an idea is feasible before pouring resources in for a major investment.

Frontend development

We can use frontend to optimise an interface to increase user friendliness. This results in high customer satisfaction and a positive user experience.

Responsive design

Responsive design allows the website to function in different web browsers, particularly on mobile devices – both old and new. Performance and interaction design should follow the same track. We make sure that all devices can read your website without encountering bugs.
