4. Designing your Web Application

Before you Start

The most important things before you start developing is to have a clear understanding of what you need to deliver. To do this you should be able to answer the following questions:

  • What does the site need to communicate and do?
  • Who are the target audience?
  • Am I designing for phone, tablet and/or desktop?
  • Do I need to be able to run offline?
  • Do I need a login for secure access to the website?
  • Does the web application need to interface with any other applications?
  • Do I need to access and/or maintain a database?
  • What volume of data do I need to process?
  • Are there logos and corporate color schemes I should use?
  • Also think about web applications you have loved using and those you have hated.  What makes them good or bad respectively?
