There are four main areas of expertise and skills in custom web development projects: user interface design, database architecture, cross-platform CSS / JavaScript coding, and back-end administration development.  An expert in each area is necessary to ensure the success of your project.

Every custom web development projects starts with the concept development, and system and database architecture specifications.  The concept defines the look and feel of the website, while the system and database architecture defines what it will do.  The database stores all the data in the software, so it is necessary to make sure all key information and relationships are defined before the programming begins.

Once the general architecture and functionality has been defined, the user interface designer will create mockups of key screens.  The focus will be on ease of use, and achieving the software goals, whether they are to increase productivity, sales, or access to important information.  The UI designer may use a variety of testing to verify the optimal interface, whether informal usability tests, to split a/b or poll testing, all the way up to formal test groups in controlled environments.

Next, the CSS / JavaScript developer will take the designs and create the front-end website.  This area of the project requires a thorough understanding of how different browsers handle rendering and code execution, as almost any custom web development project will target several different browsers and platforms.  The front-end development may use responsive CSS and JavaScript, and variety of libraries such as jQuery to complete the site.

Finally, the back-end developer will create the administration components.  These are often developed in a server-side scripting language such as PHP, and interface directly with the database.  In some applications, the software might use a combination of AJAX client-side rendering with web services on the back-end, or the software may just render the entire page server side.  AJAX applications offer a quicker response for the client and more desktop-like feel, however they are often more work to create apps that are truly cross-browser compatible.
