Given how hot it is in the Valley this time of year, be sure to bring plenty of water with you to these events, and anything that can offer you shade. Check the event pages for details on what each venue provides and what you’re allowed to bring with you in terms of food, drink and shade.
Thanks for the great tips! I do have a question however that I think you
could probably answer. I was wondering, What’s the different between the works of a web designer, a
web developer, a front-end developer and a back end developer?
Any insight would be greatly appreciated!
Good question. A web designer basically is responsible for how the website looks and its layout. A developer is in charge of the more technical aspects of the website and how it functions. The answer to all of that can get pretty complex. Maybe we’ll write a full blog post on this. Keep an eye out for that in the coming weeks!
Hey there! We decided to write that blog post after all to answer your question more fully. Check it out here and let us know what you think: https://www.eminentseo.com/blog/difference-between-web-designer-and-web-developer/
