2020 is just a few months away, and speculations have already begun in the technology space. The more excited and curious are Full-Stack Developers because they work on both front-end and backend of the application. We can understand this excitement as both the web and mobile app development industry is experiencing huge transformation.
If you are a full-stack developer, you have to note that with changing scenario mere knowledge of client and server-side will not help to upgrade your scale. You need to also follow the recent trends in full stack development to become a frontline developer.
Let’s begin with the journey ahead
Cloud Computing with Full Stack Development
Many business organizations, which are already using DevOps technology, are migrating the apps to the cloud. The migration of the tools helps you to provide continuous delivery to a hosted virtual platform.
For a full-stack developer, the migration means the best usage of in-house resources, leveraging the benefit of a collaborative environment, and quicker implementation of cloud computing.
Cloud computing in full-stack allows you to take full advantage of DevOps technology to establish improved communication and coordination between the development and operations team.
Cloud Computing Gives Rise to Serverless Technology
Cloud computing has introduced serverless technology allowing you to build serverless applications. So, what is so special about serverless apps? They can run in stateless compute containers and are event-driven architecture. These apps depend on third-party services such as Backend-as-Service (BaaS).
Let’s see how the serverless applications will benefit the full stack development process.
- Don’t Need to Write Codes
The first advantage of the serverless application is that it is codeless. Since third-party applications manage the applications, you don’t need to write any backend code. It means that your application will have fewer bugs and much easier to maintain. Also, it becomes easier for any developer in your team to hand over the project to a full stack developer.
- Applications are Less Complex
Since your applications do not have any codes, they are less complicated. The serverless architecture provides simple APIs that work perfectly to manage functionality.
- Increase Your Developing Speed
Another definite scope of serverless applications is the enhancement of speed while developing apps. Thus, full-stack developers can spend more time on other areas such as designing User Interface and application testing before the launch.
- Reduction in Cost
Not only serverless architecture has enabled full-stack development companies to increase their speed and efficiency, but it also reduces the cost of development.
- Uncompromising Security
One of the major concerns for full-stack developers has always been related to the security of applications. But take a sigh of relief as serverless applications receive robust security from different tools such as Protego, PureSec, Synk, and others. All these tools play a role in finding and fixing security lapses and protect data leakage.
For example, Angular.js, the renowned front-end framework, has introduced Angular 8.0 with several new features and upgrades. These include CLI workflow improvements, dynamic imports for lazy routes, and more.
Similarly, there has been an enhancement in React.js with the latest 16.8 version. It also offers a plethora of advantages.
More of Progressive Web Apps
Progressive Web Apps, which has already created a dominance in 2019, will excel further as time progresses. Come 2020, and modern web applications will have a higher level of functionality.
For example, you can load them instantly regardless of the network and choice of the browser. You can build more user-specific websites with rich and intuitive user experience. Also, you don’t have to deal with the cache issues; Some experts are also of the view that Progressive Web Apps will replace native apps in the future.
PWAs offer advanced features such as app-like interface, easy discoverability, and installation, full responsiveness, and others that allow increasing traffic to your site.
Use of Single Page Applications (SPA)
Another hot of discussion in the full-stack development community is using single-page applications. Single-page applications are popular in web development as it allows you to boost your performance and reduce errors.
User Interface with Motion
Full-Stack Development means you also have to deal with the app designing as well. Thus, you should get familiar with what new trends are ruling now and will continue to do so in the future.
One such trend that you have to watch out for is Motion UI. It is known for its dynamic graphics and amazing animation that creates real impacts on usability. You will be able to communicate your visual story to your user with a spectrum of modern tools and techniques. Motion UI is a sustainable library allowing you seamless transition effects.
Artificial Intelligence and Chatbot
As applications are transcending towards digital transformation, technologies such as artificial intelligence and chatbot have taken the front seat. It allows you to gather data and analyze information in real-time to make quick business decisions.
As a full-stack developer, you should start implementing these innovative technologies to automate the business process.
Time to Explore the Future
When you choose to become a full-stack developer, you don’t have to restrict yourself to only mastering front-end and backend development. It is essential to keep upgrading your knowledge on the recent trends and implement those to gain more expertise.
