The continuous progression of updated and new approaches and apps to the internet field makes it imperative to be updated on the latest trends and technologies.
Below are the ten website development technologies that every developer should learn.
1. Less – is a technology that would enable one to do more with less. It helps simplify and declutter CSS coding. It also enables assigning a new class name to a collection of various CSS classes that would be used again and again in a project.
2. Grunt – a nifty little tool that enables a developer to automate tasks that are related to web design, like compilation, concatenating files, executing shell commands, minification and the like. All it takes is to set up certain repetitive tasks that presently take up a lot of time that could be best spent somewhere else. Grunt would run them when and where one wishes.
4. HTML5 APIs – a whole collection of APIs that developers must really should be familiar with when building creative sites, not to mention testing how the site would interact with certain user devices and in general the code performance.
5. Ember – provides several various solutions to common issues encountered when creating an application, like event delegation, child views and rendering pipeline when responding to user events.
6. Git – an excellent tool that could help web designers remain on track. It has the ability to enable one to create branches off the main development path that could be merged later into the project or not. It is useful for assessing individual features or completely new ideas.
7. Web Fonts Embedding – added metadata and compression to help with possible bandwidth concerns that are related with using several fonts.
8. OAuth – lets a user allow limited access to some or all their data stored on a website or an app for a specific use or amount of time. It goes beyond site use to include support for desktop applications, set-top boxes and mobile devices.
9. Node.js – is another of the newer platforms for designers to use to create new apps. The focus is for those looking to build network apps that are done in real-time, scalable and handling large amounts of data. The Node community of users provides a huge number of third-party modules to supplement basic Node modules.
10. YQL – or Yahoo Query Language, like SQL offers ways for developers to query and access data across the internet without having to use different APIs. The DESC and SHOW commands enable finding the finding of data sources and more with no need to open up another browser.
