A full-stack developer is someone who knows how to run suites in all the applications. Markup and programming languages, Frameworks, CMS, Databases, Version Control, Deployment – full-stack developers must know how to work on all or any one of these "stacks" as required. They are required to know about a pool of technologies like HTML, PHP & Python, Angular & React, Wordpress & Magento, MySQL & MongoDB, Github, Google Cloud.
So, a full-stack developer is a programmer that is knowledgeable in both the frontend and backend of an app or web development. They must know how to switch between different components of a program as and when needed. Also, they should be able to differentiate the nature of related issues.
Web development projects might be either a website, mobile or a native application. A project usually defines the...
Development services have seen a dramatic turn of events in the last few years. In-house development services are now getting outsourced too, to avail maximum benefits. Outsourced development services have now carved their unique niche. A report by Statista states that the year 2018 generated a global IT outsourced revenue of $62 billion.
The shortage of workforce and modern technology in the local labor market are two main reasons for its growth. While creating a new product, outsourcing companies are capable of providing a professional experience. As technology advances, there is an increasing demand for creativity and expertise. And outsourcing provides exactly that.
It is extremely important to figure out when a company needs in-house software development and when they require outsourced services. In-house services require enough investment in infrastructure and resources. Plus, the company also...
A recent report by Statista revealed that the revenue generated by AR-based apps is estimated at $6,218.23 million by 2020. Augmented Reality has grown dramatically since it was first implemented in 2016 as Pokemon Go. It is an AR-based gaming app capable of launching virtual battles by making the Pokemon characters appear in their physical surroundings. It had almost 500 million worldwide downloads and hence popularized the concept of AR in mobile app development.
Businesses can utilize Augmented Reality in developing mobile apps to enhance the user experience. They can increase user engagement by integrating physical and virtual environments.
Augmented Reality has changed how smartphones are used. Interactive user sessions are the topmost priority. Hence, the combination of virtual sounds and visuals with reality can take the user experience to another level. Following...
When an idea starts taking its shape into an app; the most important decision is – on which platform should it be launched? However, there should be an appropriate budget if the developer decides to launch on both platforms. Because, firstly, they would have to look after all the areas at once, on both platforms. This increases the limitations, time and costs. Secondly, if there is a problem with one code, it needs to be changed for both platforms. An app could either be for Android or Apple. And it can be for both platforms – usually called cross-platform apps. However, many of the developers rather choose to launch an app for one platform and then across others.
Netflix, Spotify, Instagram, YouTube – there’s one thing that is common between all of these digital giants, and that is the Python programming language. Python is considered to be the most realistic, simple, user-friendly and perhaps the easiest language to learn for web and app development. Apart from that, due to the increase in the demand for apps, it also ensures scalability. Take for example Instagram with its 400 million active user base per day. Developed in Python language, Instagram has taken creativity and digitalization to a new level. Python includes Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, and Internet of Things. It’s a wholesome language package unlike Java, Ruby and PHP. And for the same reason the world’s largest music streaming platform, Spotify, chose Python, especially for back-end and data analytics.
Apple launched its latest version of iOS in September 2018, iOS 12. The technology has advanced to such a stage that currently, there are almost 2.2 million applications in the App store. In fact, approximately 2450 applications are added on an average daily basis. On top of that, the virtual assistant Siri is becoming smarter than ever. A recent study found out that the answers provided by Siri hold almost 70% correctness.
One of the growth trends of Apple is the huge number of free apps in the store. According to the reports, free apps constitute almost 89% of the total, whereas, the remaining are the paid ones. Moreover, compared to the app downloads in the year 2017, the first half of the year 2018 has already seen an increase of 10.6%.
