Web Development is one of the many skills under the umbrella of Computer Science. Computer Science is estimated to grow by around 15% in the next decade, so web development will grow with it. However, with the introduction of AI such as ChatGPT, how does it affect how web apps/sites are created? What about those whose job it is to do exactly that? As Computer Science expands and grows, what will be the future of web development?
It comes as no surprise that mobile-first design is growing in popularity given the ubiquity of mobile devices. Using this strategy, websites are first created with the mobile user experience in mind, and then they are scaled up for larger screens. This guarantees that websites are optimized for the majority of mobile users. This puts desktop users at a disadvantage as websites may load slower for them and be more focused on optimization for mobile users.
Progressive Web Apps (PWAs)
The functionality of a mobile app and the usability of a website are combined in progressive web apps, a new kind of website. PWAs can be downloaded and installed directly from a user's smartphone without the need for an app store. An example of this are the Apple App Clips. They will most likely gain popularity over the next few years, particularly in sectors like e-commerce.
Voice Search Optimization
Website voice search optimization is becoming increasingly crucial as smart speakers and voice assistants become more common. In order to be helpful to their users, this requires employing natural languages in website copy and metadata, as well as arranging content in a way that is simple for voice assistants to read and interpret.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning
Many applications of AI and machine learning are already being employed in web development, including chatbots and personalization. These technologies are likely to spread in the future, especially when developers gain easier access to them. This might result in more unique and interesting user experiences.
Although augmented reality is being utilized in some smartphone apps and games, it's likely to become more common on the internet in the years to come. Users will be able to engage in interactive experiences thanks to AR-compatible gadgets.
The future of web development is exciting. As mobile devices become more prevalent and new technologies continue to evolve, we can expect websites to become more accessible, engaging, and personalized than ever before. Web development will help to shape the face of the industry in the future.
