Latest Technology News in Web development

development-predictions-2015-by-zing-designWith new powerful development tools, super cool new technology and tidal changes in the tech world, this year looks set to be a very exciting year for web developers. Here are our top 10 trends and predictions for the web development world in 2015.

1. Motion UI

An emerging trend we will see a lot more of in the new year, Foundation for Apps already implemented strong visual feedback using animation. Along with Motion UI, Google’s Material Design is an emerging trend which we’ll no doubt see a lot more of, probably helped along by frameworks like the Polymer Project.

2. New challenges for responsive design

While wearable technology continues to grow in popularity, we can expect new design challenges presented by devices like the Apple Watch, Google Glass and Oculus Rift. Supporting every screen regardless of size or shape is what responsive design is all about. ZURB’s Foundation is evolving into “Foundation for Sites” and continues to evolve.A screenshot of a quiz game called Topeka, which was built using the Polymer Project Semantic UI is a new design framework which is looking really promising, particularly for app design.

3. Foundation for Apps

Foundation’s first foray into the app space, the new framework introduces app templates, an integrated JavaScript development environment with AngularJS and Gulp. New design components including Motion UI and the flexbox grid. It’s still early days for the framework, but we expect big things.

4. The rise of Node.js

Teams will shift towards using a single language on web projects. Node will help to push this transition along, as both front and back end developers are generally competent in JavaScript.

7. Web API

More app developers will build web APIs, utilised by their web app and their native apps. This is already starting to happen, and will almost certainly increase in popularity as a single codebase is a lot easier to maintain.

Following the growth in popularity of the above-mentioned technologies, I expect we’ll see more single page applications being produced. In the new year I hope to see more solutions to some of the challenges which building these apps present.

9. The rise of Instagram

Instagram recently passed Twitter in their number of users, does this mean a movement away from micro-blogging and an increase in the popularity of image sharing applications? We hope to see more creative ways to share images and videos as new technology becomes available. We should also keep an eye out for developments and trends within other image-based sharing applications like Pinterest and SnapChat.

10. The Internet of Things (IoT)

The Internet of Things is the network of physical objects that contains embedded technology in order for them to communicate and interact with their environments and each other. More devices are becoming network-accessible, so as web developers, we’ll be tasked with coming up with new solutions to help users control and communicate with their cars, heat pumps, ovens, toasters and plants.
