Web Development is anything associated with a website, including static HTML page, front-end, and back-end development. While the front end is visible to everyone using the website, and that has webpages, graphics, text, images, the back-end is everything related to database, API’s and more, which is required for a website to function correctly, and that includes the database and API’s to interact with the database via feeds, query language, or more and return the requisite information to the user.
Let us have a look at some of the popular web development technologies commonly used these days:
Internet of Things (IoT)
Most smart devices such as smartwatches, smart TV, intelligent switches, even elegant fans, and lights are interconnected via the internet of things. All these devices require the internet to work, and that is why integration between hardware, software, and websites is necessary on a large scale, which will drive the next wave of change in the foreseeable future.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is another cutting-edge technology that drives the change in web development. From self-driven cars, voice-assisted navigation, automatic recognition of voice and face of a human being, and granting access to the right person and a machine-assisted conscience that can make decisions to help human beings, the application is countless.
Artificial Intelligence is an innovative technology that is advocated and used by large tech MNC’s like Google, Apple, Microsoft, Facebook, and has also found usage in the development of plugins of web browsers and Word Press.
The most common use of AI and Machine Learning in web development is through the use of Chatbots, which are nowadays used by every IT, banking, service, and product-based company to provide premium quality customer services as per the requirements of the customers.
Motion User Interface (UI)
Nowadays, companies are focusing on building a website with an interactive and immersive user experience, which can be achieved by creating a better UI with easy-to-visit web pages with interactive and attractive elements and an excellent web page layout.
To achieve this feat, one can use motion UI technology to implement a website development strategy strictly. Among many other web application development technologies, UI is the only technology that includes animated charts, background animations, animated headers & banners.
Progressive web apps (PWA) and accelerated mobile pages (AMP)
Why should a developer consider implementing PWA or AMP? The answer is quite simple: because these are unique technologies that load web pages faster, and in turn, Google prioritizes them and improves their ranking.
A progressive web app (PWA) are web pages that are increasingly used by e-commerce websites that can work online or with poor internet, is a low cost, and is optimized for mobile viewing experience. A PWA supports interactions, allowing users to enjoy a high-end experience without ever realizing that they are still using the web browser.
An accelerated mobile page (AMP) works for static content only, and their loading time is much less than the HTML page. An AMP will remove all unnecessary elements and displays only the necessary information like text, images, etc.
