Web Designer Day, May 31, 2023
The vastness of the internet is admirable. However, a web designer created and designed it for every page and site on the internet. All this was done by a human being laboring genuinely to bring you the wonders that help spread information daily. It could be a professional trying to carve out every bit of code or a hobbyist using a prior-built site and themes.
WEB DESIGNER DAY’S HISTORY
For the web to exist, someone had to spend a lot of time developing the first ever website since the conception of the internet. Eventually, dozens of video and audio protocols and many web browsers were built. Then arose Chat rooms, and YouTube was born and developed by a quiet set of people who watch as we enjoy what they labored for.
Although Mark Zuckerberg created Facebook, numerous unnamed developers keep the service functioning. Apart from building the gorgeous sections of a website, web designers also produce all of the small bits and pieces that keep a site functioning in the background with various specialties. Without web designers, the world would be a boring hunk of dirt because they channel their creativity into building an alternative world we have come to depend on. Whether it is about creating an e-commerce store or social media platform, National Web Designer Day offers an opportunity to recognize the important work done by these people.
