Web Development Evolution – Different Era of Web Development

web development evolution

Web Development, by the book:
Web development is defined as the work process that goes into creating and managing a website either for the World Wide Web, or for a private network/intranet. The work that goes into in can vary in magnitude, from being simple and straight forward to being a multi-faceted venture of combining a complicated mixture of various web-based internet applications and social network services.

Few of the main tasks that web development covers are:

  • Web designing
  • Client-side/server-side scripting
  • E-commerce development
  • Web server
  • Network security configuration
  • Web content development

Typically, there is a department that deals with each of these sectors individually, and there is a work-flow system in place at most software development companies.

The Change:
Before the philosophy used to be the more the better, the more extensive a website was, the better. Sites were chock full of videos, photos and other such features, and that is what impressed users.

But now times have changed…
Not it’s all about a site being refined, something that goes almost unnoticed by the common users. Websites today work on being more aesthetically pleasing and interactively smoother than those of the past. An important element allowing for such an evolution is the self-development of web technologies that has granted the web developers the ability to produce various new generations of useful and immersive web experiences. The ongoing efforts of the general web community that have helped in defining the web technologies like HTML5, CSS3 and WebGL in the first place have developed new processes and systems to make sure that all these features are supported in all the web browsers used regularly by the users.

The evolution in web designing has cause web development to become much more personal, as per the demands and needs of various customers. Since people have started taking a greater interest in their web campaigns, web developers have learned to be far more adaptive in their programming.

In the 1990s, designing was done such that deigning and aesthetics were given hierarchy over accessibility. Newer features such as CSS were introduced to enhance both the accessibility and the professional outlook for the websites. Flash also came through during the same time period to enhance the development of animations and grant greater options to the general public in this regard.

Mobile computing however is by far the biggest change that has occurred in web development. Cell phones have transformed from being a simple calling device to one of the most powerful and resourceful devices of the century. They are now able to send and receive data from all over the world. Newer cell phone generations, those integrated with 3G or 4G networks are responsible for a faster form of data transfer and also allow their users to use Internet while on the go.

Some from Our Clients

I have had the pleasure of working with Genetech for several years now. I would not work with any other group. The projects have been varied and have included website design (they have done multiple sites for me and are always unique and creative), app development (multiple projects) and also using their dedicated developer service. In all of these areas, I have found Genetech to be knowledgeable, on time and willing to take on projects that have been unusual and outside the norm. Genetech's people always go above and beyond and I feel they are part of my company! In regards to their app development, I cannot overstate their expertise and also their fearlessness to take on projects that are outside the norm and over deliver on the final product. I have recently taken advantage of their dedicated developer service and have been extremely happy with their response time and their the ability of the developer to think "outside the box" when needed. The major part for me is the communication. Initially I was concerned about the ability to communicate with an overseas programmer but with Genetech there has never been an issue. Their response time and ability to understand my needs has been beyond my expectation. I would work with no one else and highly recommend Genetech and have recommended them to many colleagues.
