So let’s look all these steps in detail.
1 . Planning
when we talk about planning then one questions comes in our mind what planning we should do? and how should do?. Planning is nothing but documenting all the thoughts you have, like if you are thinking about to make a website for blogging then plan about topic on which you are going to write and target audience like who will be benefited from your content. plan your budgets like how much you can spend in hosting and domain name, what will be the maintenance cost and all.write down all your need.
2 . UX Design
What is User Experience (UX) Design?
“User Experience Design” is often used interchangeably with terms such as “User Interface Design” and “Usability”. User experience (UX) design is the process to create products that provide meaningful and relevant Experience to users.
UX design is basically visual of you planning where you convert your plan into visual. The important aspect of UX design is Usability and User Interface (UI) Design. Usability is a measure of how well a specific user in a specific context can use a product/design to achieve a defined goal effectively, efficiently and satisfactorily.
User Interface design is the process of designing an interface for users, focusing on looks or style. Designers aim to create interfaces which users find easy to use and pleasurable.
For Example :
You decided to make website for travel agency, so for UI you can choose different colors like primary color, secondary color, color for menu, color for menu item, color for showcase, color for footer , color for sidebar, etc.
3 . Prototype
One of the most important step when you are building websites. Prototype is primary version of your website where you put you logics on pictures.
There are many tools available for prototyping and most of the companies using it. before building actual website first you should build prototype of it so when you take some suggestions from clients or your collogues if they suggest you to make some changes then you could easily do that .so, prototype solves the lots of problems when it comes to development.
4 . Coding
Once you are done with your prototype then start coding. write cleaner code with documentation so others can understand it. when you code then you should consider code review so your code will be much more effective. Try to write reusable code so others can use.
