All of us have witnessed the way technology has changed our lives. Even today, technology continues to make our lives easier with automation. In addition, the technology has also created an entirely different view about web development. It wouldn’t be wrong to say that trends are not just changing, but new trends are appearing by each passing day giving web developers a chance to explore their creativity.
Almost every company is utilizing the new era of programming. Developers need to be on the top of their game to ensure they are making full use of the latest trends if they want to succeed in this highly competitive industry.
Web Development in 2010
Since a lot of blogs on the internet have already covered the web development trends in 2019, let’s move one step ahead and discuss the expected changes to take place in 2020. It may seem early to talk about this but the pace at which technology is progressing, it is better now than never.
Artificial Intelligence, most commonly known as AI, is one of the most popular technologies of the modern era. Not being aware of this technology is nothing short of a crime. In all these years, AI has gained a lot of momentum and now this technology will unleash. What to expect from this technology in 2020?
- Developers will be able to create the charm of a website.
- The technology will itself develop the site based on user interest, design, and functionality.
- Brainstorming time will reduce.
- Development costs will reduce.
- Skills of the developers will enhance.
Artificial intelligence is certainly going to be the main trend for years to come not only in web development but other areas as well.
Internet of Things (IoT)
Internet of Things is a vast concept and its functionality lies greatly in web development. As we all know that the internet has a great impact on our lives and we have become a lot more dependent on it. Be it business organizations, service providers, enterprises, or other corporations, surviving without internet in this age seems like an impossible task. The main idea of this technology is to utilize the intellectual potential of the devices and use it in web development in a way that it better reflects the behavior of the intended users. Statistics suggest that by 2020, more than 31 billion devices will be connected to the internet creating a massive impact on the trends in web development. Web development is certainly moving into a new dimension and Internet of Things will undeniably be a crucial part of it.
Single Page Applications (SPAs)
Single Page Applications (SPAs) may not be that popular among the masses but the fact is that this trend is not going anywhere, not even in 2020. Initially, this technology was used to create websites that connect with the users by dynamically rewriting the entire page. In the case of web development, the common code will be extracted on a permanent basis and key elements such as navigation bar, background, registration window, and others will be fully loaded while the page necessary will open on need basis. This will improve the web loading speed giving users a better chance to use the internet even on slow connections.
Chat Bots are now available in almost all the websites and applications that speaks volumes of the empowerment this technology brings in terms of customer service. However, the quality has always been a point of concern for business owners and rightly so. Many bots still give incorrect or irrelevant answers. Today, the chat bots are not limited to the preloaded base and they have become smart enough to learn the most unusual treatment. They interact with the users in a way that seems like a real person is on the other side of the screen. In the next year or so, it is expected that the chat bots will also perform some minor tasks like renewing the subscription, activating/deactivating services, and others to make the applications more efficient and fast.
Making full use of these trends from the current year will give you an edge over your competitors in a way that you will be fully prepared and have better knowledge of the functionalities of these technologies that you can use in your favor. What the next year holds for web development, only time will tell but these trends will be there and that’s for sure!
