Web development space is evolving constantly and expanding its support for emerging technologies. The mobile revolution has also paved the way for diverse web development technologies and frameworks as mobile browsers behave differently from the traditional web browsers. However, there are some programming languages that have stood the test of time and reigned the internet with their versatile features over the decades.
Here are some of those.
Hypertext Pre-Processor is a server-side scripting language aimed at creating powerful, dynamic and interactive websites. The popularity of this language is such that more than 80% websites in the digital world are powered by this language. This was made possible by its features and popular frameworks such as Symfony, Laravel and CakePHP. This language has a short learning curve and can be easily embedded into HTML code without requiring another IDE. It is also the core of various popular content management systems including WordPress, Drupal, Joomla and Magento. Another great feature is that it supports all the current web browsers as well.
Just like PHP, Ruby is a high-level programming language and can be easily embedded into HTML. It is an object-oriented programming language with features like secure coding, flexible syntax and debugger which enables the developers to create good quality and better resolution web applications. Apart from this, it also allows programmers to write multi-thread apps using simple API and connect with various databases such as Oracle, Sybase, DB2 and MySQL. It also has a very popular framework known as Rails and is called Ruby on Rails.
This language was developed by Microsoft to allow programmers build and deploy highly functional, dynamic and scalable web applications quickly and conveniently. The latest release is ASP.Net Core 1.1 which is the fastest of all versions released till date. It includes many intricate features such as WebListener Server for Windows which enables programmers to benefit from Windows features by bundling ASP.Net to develop high performing and engaging web applications.
The above-mentioned are the technologies shaping the digital experience.
