Best Web Development Trends For 2017

Technology changes constantly, so to be at the top of your game as a web developer, it’s vital you’re keeping up. It can be confusing and discerning when so many updates and developments are being released every few weeks.

Using Artificial Intelligence to create websites & apps

Artificial intelligence programs are already used successfully by Google and Wikipedia, the technology is more than within our grasp to allow us to develop software which can think and act as a human without requiring the manpower.

The evolution of JavaScript in 2017

There’s a lot of discussion going on in the web development space on which new programming language you should learn.

Internet of Things

The Internet of Things – the internet is moving; away from our computers and mobile phones and into our household appliances.

Static site generators

Static site generators are a great way to create websites. You don’t need a database, instead your web pages are simple files which run on your servers. With that comes advantages in website loading times, better security handling, and ease of deployment.

Bots & the role of conversational UI

Bots are there to make our life easier and our experiences more personable (or at least they should). Bots are interesting from various standpoints and use cases. Therefore the design and development of conversational UI will become an important topic for developers in 2017.

Ruby on Rails

Ruby on Rails 5 – released in June 2016, Rails 5 is set to become much more popular throughout 2017.

Around since 2005, Rails seemed unable to make a real impact on web development but the ease and variety of features within Rails 5 including Turbolinks 5 and ActionCable is quickly making it a firm favourite with web developers.

The next generation of Angular JS

Also released in 2016, this Angular update introduces a newly redesigned JavaScript Framework.

It is also expected to be more regularly updated and tweaked, with one significant update being promised every six months, therefore offering developers who use it never-ending abilities at the cutting edge of website building technology.
