What are Website Templates?

Although it is necessary for businesses to have a web presence in this day and age, there are some businesses who may not need to hire professional services to do the job and can opt for a simple web presence. Website templates allow these individuals and small businesses to create such a presence in an easy way. Business cards, portfolios, and your designs can be showcased with the help of these templates.

A template is basically a pre-existing web page with certain graphical elements, which can be customized with images, videos, and other graphical elements. Basically, these templates are designed to cut the work short and continue with the customization phase real quick. These website templates are created by web developers using HTML, CSS and other coding languages for people who are naïve to simplify the web development process.

The CMS is then installed on your web host server and get on to downloading the website templates for it.

These templates can be then worked upon to add the personalized logos and images.

Understanding little human psychology assists designers in creating visually appealing websites. Secondly, emotional connection all favours the company. There must at least be two or three emotional projections that your project should convey to the target audience.

Do not overlap multiple emotional experiences but include the one that is simple yet scripted exceptionally well such as a design that creates user-product relationship or designs that create relationship in-between users.

Perils of Web Development Courses

There are many education vendors in the market that offer web development courses to help all of us aspiring code lovers in becoming the best. But, what they fail to highlight is that there are at least 10 students in every session and out of hundreds of students taking the course every month only a very select few actually master the skills required.
What these education providers are doing is that they teach you the simple basic elements of code and let you play around with it. While it baffles the vast majority and they fail to understand the underlying theories a selected few would learn which elements are to be used where and when. The web development courses are barely enough to get you to develop even your own personal web page.

The development practices and the coding trends taught through these courses are the current trends. What this means is that the basic knowledge and the coding theories that have led to codes development so far are entirely omitted from the course. Without understanding the code from its primordial emerging point, one cannot expect to lead the innovation and become a world renowned developer.
Another aspect related to creativity and innovation is that the web development courses usually alter an individual’s creative learning curve due to conformity and other typical educational system related problems. This factor has been highlighted by many world class innovation leaders like Steve Jobs.
