Turning Script Into Art
Regardless of what device is being used to access your site or program, there’s a level of graphical computing involved. Operating systems like Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft Edge, and Safari all decode the script in their particular way, so by adding visual queues into the script, those systems can interpret it and represent the data that you want the way you want.
You’ve probably seen a website where a particular plugin or component of the site looks something like:
[code goes here][/cannot show properly]
The visual representation of this shortcode is a result of a misconfigured script, and while it may work properly, it’s not displaying correctly. All websites, all components of an app, anything that you can look at and not see the above code, that is the result of Front-end development.
