Web development industry always have been subject to constant change. With more and more people connecting to the world wide web and browsers becoming powerful than ever, the concept of web development has changed a whole lot from just “being responsive” in the past couple of years. There have been major developments in web development domain. Here are some of the trending web development technologies to watch out for in 2019.

1. Progressive Web Apps

Front End development technologies like Angular and React have allowed developers to craft stunning Progressive web apps that works like a normal software within a browser. With PWA approach, the browser doesn’t need to refresh it’s pages, thereby providing an extremely smooth and clutter free user experience for the user. With more and more softwares moving to cloud these days, PWA has proven to be the best approach when building a cloud software application.

2. Rise of JS Based Front End Frameworks

Back when Netscape developed Javascript in just 10 days, I bet they had no Idea what would become of their new scripting language. Javascript has become the backbone of the world wide web. Js is right there on top alongside HTML and CSS and a world without JS is quite hard to even imagine.

Interestingly, the last decade we saw some massive development in JavaScript and a lot of cool front end frameworks were born. Angular, React,  VueJs, CoffeeScript are a few to mention. New innovative Front end frameworks are popping out every now and then these days. We can expect this trend to continue in the coming years.

3. Full Stack Development using JavaScript

Back in the days, to be a full stack developer, you need to master multiple programming languages. For example HTML and Bootstrap for the FrontEnd and JAVA/C#/Python for the backend. However, that has not been the case since the inception of Node.js framework. Node.js is a functioning backend framework entirely developed using Javascript, which means, if you know javascript very well, you can manage full stack development without learning another language. The Recently launched Meteor.js is a complete full stack development framework which makes both frontend and backend development easier.

4. ChatBots

Chatbots have become absolutely necessary for business websites now. Chatbots are very effective in collecting information from the user and generating leads. With massive innovations in the AI development, It won’t be too long until automated chatbots will start talking to website visitors like a normal business representative.

5. Push Notifications

Push notifications have proven to be a great method for making users engage with mobile applications. The same technique is now available on the web also. Even if the user is away from your website, the browser will be able to send push notifications to the user, prompting them to visit your website.

6. Mobile First Approach

In the past decades, mobile-optimized websites was not a priority for businesses as well as developers. But times have changed. Technology has allowed us to access high-speed internet from our smartphones. The number of Mobile internet users have already surpassed the number of desktop internet users. As a result, more and more businesses are targeting the portrait Mobile friendly User Interface and UX for their websites and web applications.
