Current trends in web application development

The web is constantly changing and evolving. And as new technologies arrive, old ones retire or improve. It is very important to keep up to date with the latest developments and apply it to your projects. Here is a summary of current technology in this field:

Progressive web application

These are basically web apps or websites that look like mobile apps, especially in terms of functionality and design. It is a pair of web browser features and native mobile apps to offer the user an app-like experience, which explains its growing popularity. The PWA was proposed by Google a few years ago and has several advantages. Some of which are instant upload, push notifications and increased conversions, and the ability to add the PWA app to the user’s home screen.

The rise of chatbots

The customer is king, the customer is always right! There are enough aphorisms to show how valuable and important the customer is. Companies are always looking to improve customer service and keep them satisfied. With chatbots, they can do it 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. These chatbots can answer regular queries, direct users to the right information, and even set appointments, among other tasks. Which makes it a very useful and efficient feature.

Motion user interface is important

A website should be simple, easy to navigate and most importantly, intuitive. This is where the motion user interface comes into play, originally popular for mobile apps. With this, you can create a functional and well-designed site. This is achieved through the use of animations, scrolling, headings, and transitions, among others, to differentiate your website from your competitors.

Blockchain technology

The buzzword today is blockchain. You can associate it with cryptocurrency. But it basically allows for the collective storage of data and information that is distributed to thousands of computers around the world. This means that it would be almost impossible to destroy or hack a chain of blogs and the data is public and available to anyone who needs it. It can be used for decentralized file storage, supply chain auditing, among others. This technology is on the rise and finds much application in web development.

Single page websites

Our attention span is low. There are too many things, too many things that demand our attention. It is not surprising, given the circumstances, that the new trend of websites demands that they be single-page. This means you’ll find everything you need on one easily navigable page, of course! You can access different parts of the page by scrolling or clicking on the links. These types of websites work well on mobile. In addition, the cost of development, design and hosting remains low due to the simplicity of the design.

The change is constant, and this is especially true in the world of web development. It is imperative that companies take the lead and stay up to date.
