What trends can we expect to see when it comes to application development in 2016? Joe Stangarone asked industry experts to weigh in for mrc’s Cup of Joe Blog. James Tauber of Eldarion contributed a prediction about front-end technologies that was included in the article 5 Big Enterprise Application Development Trends of 2016 and is excerpted here:
Over the last few years, we’ve seen a growing trend: The shift towards client-side development. In the past, the client-server model relied on the server doing the heavy lifting, and then sending the results to the client.
But, now that’s changing. Users demand stronger and more responsive web applications that rival native mobile apps and desktop software. As a result, more of the application must be put in the browser.
As explained below, the push towards front-end technologies will increase in the coming year, as developers seek to create web apps with the power of native apps.
“I think 2016 will see a continuation of a trend we saw in 2015,” says James Tauber, founder, CEO of Eldarion. “That is, a move toward front-end web technologies that rival native apps in functionality. React will continue to dominate, and emerging standards such as Service Workers will address many of the shortcomings web applications have faced in the past versus native apps.”
