After determining the overall goals, layout, and performance limitations of a client's Web site with input from marketing, sales, advertising, and other departments, an Internet or Web developer designs the site and writes the code necessary to run and navigate it. To make the site, working knowledge of the latest Internet programming languages such as Perl, Visual Basic, Java, C++, HTML, and XML is a must. The developer must also be up-to-date on the latest in graphic file formats and other Web production tools. If site visitors will be making purchases, the site must also have layers of security for the protection of both the buyers and seller.
