I have always seen smart developers to look ahead of their time and trying to adapt to the ever-changing world of web development trends. Whether you are into web development or mobile application development, new trends are opening new doors of opportunities and staying on top of the latest development trends will eventually help you to land on the job that might don’t exist yet.
It was beyond imagination 20 years before, how today’s web would look like, so who knows what the coming decades will hold.
Today let me share the top web development trends in 2019…
Serverless Web Application Development
With companies like Amazon, Microsoft & Google now serverless computing is a blessing for developers who want to build and run applications and services without thinking about servers. With serverless computing, applications still run on servers, but all the server management is done by the cloud service providers. AWS Lambda and Google Firebase are two phenomenal instances for example which are helping engineers to concentrate on composing code and thus removing stress overturning up, conveying, checking, keeping up and scaling servers. That’s just one example of how serverless structures will enable you as a whole.
So we can easily say-
Serverless computing offers a number of benefits to web developers, including scalability, faster time-to-market, and lower expenses.
Tools you need to develop serverless web applications-
Serverless architectures use function-as-a-service (FaaS)offerings—including AWS Lambda, Azure Functions, and Google Functions—to package, deploy, and execute the business logic of software systems.
Each of the cloud vendors provides an easy way to deploy functions:
- AWS has a CLI for deploying Lambda functions, as well as two tools SAM and Chalice.
- Microsoft Azure recommends using Visual Studio for deploying functions, and it also enables doing so using the Azure CLI.
- Google Cloud provides different ways of deploying Cloud Functions. The gcloud command-line tool is the recommended way.
- IBM Cloud offers the IBM Cloud CLI.
Progressive & Cross Platform Web Apps
Progressive Web App (PWA) is that new form of Web Application which provides native app experiences using a browser. This app functions even when the device is offline. The progressive web app uses all the modern web features like push notification, cache, and secure connections to provide rich Web-based experiences. Hence, it conveys a stunning user/client experience and saves cost due to its cross-platform feature.
It is not that only we are promoting progressive app development but big giants like Google, Microsoft and other companies are pushing progressive web applications to encourage businesses to create better mobile experiences. So, I’ll suggest to-
Go for progressive web apps since they are cheaper to develop, deploy, promote and maintain than native apps
Tools and Frameworks Used for Building Progressive Web Apps-
ReactJs (Know about React Development)
Machine Learning (ML) & Artificial Intelligence (AI)
Machine Learning & AI Are Transforming Front-End Development
Tools Used for Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence-
Google ML Kit, Google’s TensorFlow, Azure Machine Learning Studio, IBM Watson, Amazon Rekognition Image, Amazon Lex and Amazon Polly, Apache Spark MLlib, Apache Mahout, Accord.NET Framework, H2O, PredictionIO, Torch, Nervana Neon etc.
Static, Single Page & Mobile Responsive Websites
These days users are more onto smartphones and thus developers are seeking frameworks which can quickly generate simple static web pages. Static pages are faster to build & load and more secure than dynamic ones, and dynamic content can be added easily to static pages with the help of APIs and Markdown. So more savvy peeps are up for single page static sites these days. Since Google’s mobile-optimized search index pf 2016 mobile responsive experience is way better if you are building keeping mobile responsiveness part under consideration.
Tools and Frameworks Used for Static, Single Page & Mobile Responsive Websites
Frameworks like Jekyll, Gatsby, or Hugo can quickly generate simple static web pages. There are also many html5 frameworks for a responsive site. Symfony, Angular JS, React.js, Asp.net, Node.js, Yii Framework, Meteor, Laravel for web designs, etc,
These are only a couple of the numerous mechanical headways I can see in web application development trends. What do you think I have missed to point out? Let me know.
