Web Development Stacks and more

Updated: Apr 29

Web development refers to the different activities involved in the website development process. It can be addressed to internet or intranet solutions. It doesn’t consider the website design but focuses on programming the different functionalities including the coding of the User Interface (UI). A complete Web team includes web developers and web designers (UI/UX) that work hand in hand.

Kinds of Web Developers

The Front-end Developer is in charge of the client-side part of a website or web app. This developer has to code the User Interface so the users can interact with the product. One important task that has to be done by front-end developers is to ensure the web product will look good and be functional on different devices, regardless of their screen size and resolution, or the browser the user is using. Other tasks are: - Maintaining the UI. - Optimizing the UX. - Implementing SEO best practices.

- Testing usability.

- Fixing Bugs. The Back-end Developer is in charge of the server-side part of a website or web app. This developer has to code all the activities that occur behind the scenes when performing an action on a web product.


Back-end development is in charge of the communication between the browser and the database.


Other tasks are: - Storing data and managing the permits to access it.

- Managing APIs resources.

- Analytics.

- Developing payment processing systems.


The Full-stack Developer has the skills of both Front-end and Back-end developers. This profile is a great option for small projects due it can work on client and server sides.

This is a high demanded profile for its versatility. Full-stack developers often work as tech leads because they have the knowledge to guide a team with front-end and back-end developers.

Web Development Stacks



A development stack is the combination of technologies defined by a company to use in the development process.

The Stack includes programming languages, servers, frameworks, and others. Choosing the right stack for a web product is important not only for technical matters but also because it will define the profile of the developers needed for the project. There are some technologies trendier than others, so it’s easier to recruit developers trained in those. This means that a trade-off between the best stack technically speaking, and the stack that offers a greater quantity of trained talents should be done.


Some Stack examples are:

MERN

Web Development trends in 2022

  • Chatbots: Chatbots are programs based on AI that are used to interact with the App’s users. These are very useful to respond FAQs, gathering data, and serve as the first support point. They were created to improve the user experience on websites and web applications. Every day its popularity increases in web development solutions.

  • SPA (Single-Page App): These kinds of websites and web apps are getting more and more common every day. Examples like Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, are only a few from a huge group of web solutions that are already built under this structure. The most common frameworks used in web development for SPAs are AngularJs, ReactJs, and VueJs.

  • Voice Search: Thanks to the massive voice assistants appropriation ( around 55% of householders in the world are going to have voice assistants by 2022) and the spread of the IoT devices, voice search is becoming more and more popular every day. This is why it’s becoming a trend to invest in voice search optimizations for web developments.


  • Serverless Architecture: This technology helps reduce development costs. There are plenty of applications that can be deployed using this kind of architecture. This architecture runs on cloud technology. In this way, Amazon, Google, and Microsoft are very strong providers of the solution.

  • Dark Mode Standardization: This function is highly demanded by users when accessing websites and web apps during nighttime.

Platforms like Facebook and Twitter are already implementing this feature.
