It’s great that you landed here. Even better when mobile apps are everywhere. Even in your pocket, right now!

So what’s the deal? Why are we here?

One reason could be app load. Say, “Duolingo”. I use it every day to learn German, my second favorite after English Language.

The problem for the user isn’t just the time (mine isn’t great still – just tested and got short of 9s on 1st load and 6s on 2nd load)..It’s that it is dead – time (wasted/lost/boring). So make it NOT-’dead’. (Duo is cute but waiting 3 seconds for him to move his eyes about and then spin off into super-duo (every time) – I doze off!

Give me an opening small something to do while you load the rest. A daily phrase or a puzzle – something that gives me some gems or something – then load the rest in the background. Then…I don’t mind so much that Duo is brushing his feathers and shining his beak behind the scenes. Take your time.

For that reason, Thank God, we have web applications!

An Introduction on what are web apps, what is web development, what is the process, what tools are being used and what skills do the development engineers need to go about?

It may be a single – page app, a progressive web app, or just a regular, multi-pager web application, development requires similar efforts, with constrictions in web application development cost, in conjunction with web app trends, actually popular at that point in time. 

About Programming Languages

Depending on their role and project, web developer make use of HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP, Python, Ruby, Java, C#, or other languages. They need to be aware of the frameworks, libraries, and API’s are used to create and enhance web applications, such as (1) Bootstrap, (2) React, (3) Angular, (4) Laravel, (5) Django, (6) Rails, (7) .Net etc.

About Web Design

Web design is the process of (1) planning, (2) creating, and (3) maintaining the visual and interactive aspects of a website or web application. It involves (1) layout, (2) typography, (3) color, (4) graphics, (5) animation, (6) navigation, (7) responsiveness, (8) accessibility, and (9) usability. A web developer should also have a good understanding of web design principles and understanding of how to implement them using HTML, CSS, JavaScript etc. They should also be able to collaborate with web designers, graphic designers, and UX/UI designers to ensure a consistent user experience. They should also be able to use tools like (1) wireframes, (2) mockups, and (3) prototypes, and be ready for feedback from users and clients.

About Web Development Tools

Web development tools are software applications or extensions that help web development teams to (1) create, (2) test, and (3) deploy web applications. These tools are used for (1) code editing, (2) version control, (3) debugging, (4) testing, (5) performance optimization, (6) security, and (7) deployment. Examples: Code editors, browsers, browser dev tools, version control systems, testing tools, performance tools, and deployment tools. (Discussed later in detail) Web developers should know how to configure them, integrate them, and update them regularly.

About Web Development Concepts

Web development concepts include (1) web architecture, (2) web standards, (3) web protocols, (4) web security, (5) web performance, (6) web accessibility, (7) web API’s, (8) web services, and (9) web trends. Web developers should read web development blogs, books, web documentation, and watch web development videos, and podcasts, and join web development communities and forums.

About Web Development Process

Web development process is the sequence of steps required to complete a web development project or a web application, which involves (1) planning, (2) analysis, (3) design, (4) development, (5) testing, (6) deployment, and (7) maintenance. They need to follow a web development process that suits their project’s scope, budget and timeline. They also need to adapt to changing requirements, communicate with your clients and stakeholders, and document their work. They need to incorporate web development methodologies – agile, waterfall, or scrum, use web development tools, such as project management software, code editors, or testing tools, and use web development best practices, such as code reviews, testing or debugging.

In summary: Stack of Technologies for developing a web application Web, trending in 2024

Web application development needs a gamut of frameworks, programming languages, cloud infrastructure, third-party plugins, libraries, and architecture:

  • Scripting languages: HTML, CSS, and JavaScript
  • Frameworks: React, Angular, Vue.js, Django, Laravel, and Node.js (etc.)
  • Code editors: V S Code, Atom, Sublime Text
  • Browsers: Chrome, Firefox, or Safari
  • Browser Dev Tools: Chrome Dev Tools or Firefox Developer Tools
  • Version control systems: Git or SVN
  • Testing tools: Jest, Mocha, or Selenium
  • Performance tools: SSL Certificates or OWASP ZAP
  • Deployment tools: FTP clients, hosting services, or client platforms

But besides these, some popular technology stacks also consider MERN tech stack, LAMP tech stack, MEAN tech stack, and .Net tech stack for full stack web development. These are simple adaptable, and low web application development cost tech stacks, suitable for creating both single-page and multi-page applications, good for small to medium-sized projects, and also conducive for startups looking to explore the market through an MVP.

Which Tech Stack should be chosen for Web Application Development?

Social media detox is so mainstream. I am going on a mobile phone detox (wait a sec, what?!)

When choosing a tech stack for web application development, companies should consider factors like project size, scalability, security, popularity, and improvement potential, and availability of web app developers.

Consider the size, type, complexity of the project, speed, functionality, expected load, productivity, and reliability of the system. Any web application development company should not forget to check the web app trends, flexibility, project scalability, and ability of the technologies used to provide it.
