Among web professionals, “web development” usually refers to the main non-design aspects of building web sites or web apps: writing the markup, coding and scripting. Web development can range from developing the simplest static single page of plain text to the most complex web-based applications, electronic businesses, social network services or any other type of net service.
For larger organizations, web development teams can consist of hundreds of people. Smaller organizations may only require a single webmaster, or secondary assignment to a related job positions such as a graphic designer and/or information systems technician.

Either way Web Development can require an endless list of changing and evolving knowledge.
