Have you ever stopped to wonder how web development technology has evolved over the past 10 years?

It’s amazing to see just how much it has changed, and it’s really incredible when you stop to think about all of the possibilities that are opened up with each new advancement in this industry.

Here are just some of the ways web development technology has evolved in the past decade or so, and what we can expect to see in the future!

Predictions

In a recent press release, Gartner predicts that by 2020 there will be more than 25 billion connected devices on our planet. It’s not just about connecting devices to networks, either—the network is coming to them.

For example, a company called Ossia is working on smart antennas that can identify and communicate with consumer electronics within range of its signal. That means one antenna could connect your phone to your TV set or thermostat without any other extra hardware required. And best of all?

It would be free for users! Gartner also predicts that Augmented Reality (AR) will enable users to interact with objects in their environment and overlay virtual elements in real-time.

Front End Developer Toolkit

The power of JavaScript, HTML5, and CSS3 has never been greater. New techniques like responsive design and mobile websites help designers create websites that look good on any device.

For users who spend most of their time on social media, new tools are available to make sharing easier than ever before, while cloud hosting makes it simple to set up web pages that look great and load quickly.

When it comes to designing or setting up a website, everything is simpler now thanks to powerful front-end development technology.

Back End Developer Toolkit

The toolkit a back-end developer should carry around with them in their mind is one that has patience, humility, and creativity.

Patience because no matter how hard you try, things will always take longer than planned. Humility because even though you probably know more than your client, it is not your job to show off but to solve their problem.

And finally creativity because without it we would never be able to come up with new solutions to current problems.

What’s Ahead for CSS in 2022?

If you’re not using CSS in your website’s design, you’re likely missing out on some incredible features that can help enhance your visitors’ experience.

The most important thing to remember about CSS is that it lives within HTML files and has no ability to function without them. If you don’t know what CSS is, then check out our quick intro and then come back when you’re ready to learn how to use it!

Before diving into all of the new ideas that we have coming up for web design technology in 2022, let’s take a look at some of these popular trends for 2019: Mobile-first web design: By next year, mobile traffic will eclipse desktop traffic.

Browser extensions

I suggest using browser extensions to improve your coding and web development.

But you need to know what each extension does. Add Web Developer, CSSViewer, Chrome Developers, Mozilla Firebug, and DevTools Extension into your chrome or firefox browser today and see how they can help you improve!

Typography

Fonts are undergoing an evolution as well. Bold, chunky fonts that were standard a decade ago have given way to more fluid typography, with new designs such as Scotchmo being specifically designed for today’s screens.

Fonts also interact differently with color than they used to—font size and line-height can make text legible even when you might be reading it on something like your phone, where real estate is precious.

This means that you should avoid typesetting for print and instead design for the screen (check out 24 ways designers use web fonts).

The newest version of iOS makes it easier than ever to work natively in code while still allowing designers to refine their work before shipping.

Motion user interface

Any interface that responds to physical movement is a type of motion user interface. We’re particularly interested in natural and effortless motions, such as simply moving your finger or hand.

With a little bit of innovation, we believe simple finger movements can be made to control more complex actions, such as browsing and even purchasing online items.

In fact, motion user interfaces have already begun making an appearance on tablets and smartphones: Have you ever used an app on your smartphone by simply pinching two fingers together?

That’s a form of the motion user interface at work. This is just one example; more are sure to follow in 2014 and beyond!

Infographics

Instead of writing your own content, you can use infographics to help your site become more interesting and authoritative.

Make them short and easy to read—most are better suited for a quick glance than a full-length read. Most importantly, make sure they’re not selling something!

Use Google image search with keyword searches for topics like best cv software or content management system software to find relevant graphics. Or, if you want to get into it yourself, here are some guidelines from Mashable on making infographics.

Voice search

Your car doesn’t have a steering wheel, and its voice is your GPS. Alexa (and other voice assistants) are built into smart speakers, like Google Home and Amazon Echo. Smart cameras use voice commands to set off smart light bulbs and other items around your home.

No doubt about it: Artificial intelligence is taking over computers—but can it improve Web development? Considering how integral a good user experience is to any website, voice search technology could be a boon for web developers.

Voice search can’t replace SEO or social media marketing; however, it could provide some helpful insights as you build engaging websites that people enjoy using… particularly when you integrate an AI element in your website design. What does that mean?

Tracking user behavior

To stay competitive in your industry, you need to know what your competitors are doing and how that may affect your business.

There are a number of tools that can help you do just that. Google Analytics is perhaps one of them.

With Google Analytics, you can track site usage patterns and traffic flow with regard to particular pages or sections of content, identify areas for improvement in website design and development, determine which marketing campaigns have driven visitors to your site, and more.

It’s free for most small businesses (you can request an exception if you meet certain criteria). If there’s another service provider or tool you prefer using that provides similar functionality, try it out.
