Web Development 2019 – An Assured Uptrend

Check out for the basics of changes in web development in the current scenario:

Mobile app industry is huge, trending and is growing faster than any of the Cosmos sprouts or Nasturtiums. A swift curve to imbibe the latest technologies. It clearly depicts that there is no end of sight beyond the horizon.

Responsiveness is one of the virtues of modern websites. Responsive web design (RWD) must be combined with suitable techniques for dealing effectively with images. It is important for a website to have images that adjust along with its big screens – high resolutions for sharpness and less resolution to save bandwidth on small screens.

Two important factors that must be considered while dealing with images for responsive websites:

  • Bandwidth (Checking the screen resolution)
  • Art Direction (Checking for an alternative method using CSS or some other techniques)

It is as well important to take care of the current techniques like:

  • Adaptive images
  • HiSRC
  • Picture Tags
  • Srcset Attribute
  • Media attributes
  • Type Attributes
  • Img Tags

Developers have been constantly creating new web pages, optimizing websites for mobiles and tablets and have been figuring out what makes it cleaner and streamlined on both front and back ends. Without further ado, let’s discuss what trends will adorn web development in the future:

Most modern UI frameworks like AngularJS, Ionic, React.JS, Node.JS have raised developers expectations for usability and intelligence. Top web application developers are constantly devising new ways to collaborate with business operations to ensure alignment of data, business rules, and processes along with emerging customer experiences. As an obvious rule, the applications have to be proofread for application logic according to the UI – a model-driven and low-code platform have to be brought on a similar level.

1. JavaScript

With increasing need to have zero downtime deployments, top development agencies are switching from Java to Node.JS for handling large applications, which are more modular for smaller frameworks.

JavaScript frameworks provide a nearly common experience across screens. The lifecycle of a brand new JavaScript framework runs for some six months until a fresh new framework that is better off than the previous one emerges. React.js, Angular.js 2, Vue.js, Meteor.js, Ember.js, Backbone.js, Aurelia.js, Polymer, Mithril.js

2. Microservices

Moving on towards the microservices model with a bunch of single-page applications that are lined up with Angular or React, gives a feeling of service-oriented architecture (SOA) architecture style to structure out an application as a collection of loosely coupled services. Top web development companies have recently started either implementing microservices or have started exploring the use of them.

Devops has given a new way to optimize resources and scale out applications architecture through iterative delivery practices.

There has been increasing use of cloud-native technologies that make use of containers to make microservices architecture. This has in-turn led organizations to turn towards DevOps principles as they build cloud-native, microservices based applications. Devops and cloud-native applications make a compounding equation that is helping organizations meet their business objectives by fostering a streamlined, lean product/service development process that can adapt quickly to market changes.

Web development trends are improving with every passing day and the use of mobile is still being felt. Best web development companies in India have been equipping their enterprise applications to allow for automatic adaption, making them advanced, better suited to the mobile environment, functionally robust and securely implemented.

With a host of open source frameworks, developers are able to use a shared coding pattern approach for logging in and user management to give a better experience to the end user. Striving in the process to make the app work in every possible way with all the localization issues, software, devices, browsers, screen sizes, resolutions, and responsive web design – all of which that depends upon JavaScript, CSS, load conditions and response time.

3. Artificial Intelligence

Although the type of artificial intelligence in action shown in famous powerful and moving TV series on HBO like Westworld, Alex Garland, Ex-Machina is far off, at least for now a true AI project can improve upon the past iterations, getting smarter and more aware, thus enhancing its capabilities and knowledge. Many of the developers are still clueless about how to interact with machine learning technology and make groundbreaking updates and revolutionary changes. But the future of the technology is promising with the continuous advances made in this arena by companies like Apple, Facebook, Tesla, Siri, Alexa, Cogito, Tesla, Boxever, John Paul, Amazon.com, Netflix, Pandora, and Nest.

4. Virtual Reality

Oculus Rift, Vive has brought interesting possibilities to the world of gaming. Google and Mozilla have already started working on API’s to help VR technology transition the web.

5. Internet of Things (IoT)

With almost every technology going mobile, there is an internetwork of connected devices that communicate amongst themselves. It is important for the proper functioning of various applications. Companies like Xively and Buglabs have already started working on respective API’s to be used by developers to communicate with IoT devices.

6. Rails 5

Rails 5 was released a few years back. But with growing popularity, we can expect newer projects in the future.

7. Angular 2 and above

With regular major and minor updates, angular has seen frequent version releases which are stable and preferable for web development.

8. Package Managers

These are incredibly popular tools – examples NPM and Bower, which make it easier for the developers to install, update, configure and uninstall code modules within their applications. Facebook as well has rolled out a new package manager in collaboration with Exponent, Google, and Tilde. Its popularity is yet to grow.

9. Static Website Generators

These help in creating websites from the plain text that are usually stored in files and not in any databases. These impart websites with increased speed, security, ease of deployment and subsequent traffic surges.

10. Web Design

Movement-based interfaces, bolder typography, coupled with compelling ways to fetch information quickly, will trigger web design and development in the coming years.

Definitive

Besides the trends discussed above, markup, forms, typography, multimedian longreads, one-page websites, adaptability with many frontend website development tools, PHP 7, instant apps, wearables and emergence of crypto-currency as a mode of P2P Payments will add up to the rising web trends in 2019.
