Every Website Production Follows A Process
The world of web design and development can look extremely overwhelming, especially since there are so many different factors involved with getting a site live. That's why there's a general web workflow or pipeline that every website production follows. It's important to realize that no two projects will be exactly alike. For example, your portfolio site won't require anywhere near as many in-depth steps as a big site redesign that's being tackled by an agency. All projects will include some version of these steps in the web development pipeline. Your first step is always Discovery. That's followed by the Plan phase, then Design, then the site's Development. Once those steps are complete, you'll Launch and then finally, you'll be at the Post-Launch, which is sometimes referred to as "Maintenance" or just simply "Beyond".
