The Web App Development Process

Web application development is the process of taking a computer programming based idea from it’s infancy through to deployment and implementation. The process includes research, development, testing, modification, implementation, and maintenance.

We work with companies who have a variety of web application needs from booking systems, to custom orders for their products, admin areas for their employees, and a host of other areas. Web apps live in browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Opera, and Edge available so it’s important to test cross-browser support.

The Technical Side of Web Applications

Web Applications can be created using a variety of technologies including JavaScript, Ajax, Java, Perl, Python, Ruby, PHP, Node.js, Lasso, JSP, ASP, ASP.NET, HTML, CSS and more. They’re created to be accessible via an internet connection and a supported browser or device.

A web app performs an action that requires logic when the user makes a request. A familiar yet complex example of a web app would be Google. The ability for the user to enter content and retrieve information based on their specific wording constitutes the action, and the ability to access Google’s website from a browser completes its definition as a web app.

There are different types of applications that companies need including web apps, native apps, and hybrid apps. Here are a few notes to help you determine which type of application you need, and whether our web application development services are right for you.

What is a Web Application?

Action based based program available to users via their web browser and an internet connection.

Examples of web applications include eCommerce stores, instant messaging services, and search engines.

How is this different from Native Apps?

Native apps are developed to work with 1 specific device or platform and would actually be installed on that device.

Native apps are designed to work offline and include basic mobile games, or a guitar tuner.

What is a Hybrid Application?

There are also hybrid applications which provide a mix of offline and online support to the user.

Hybrid Application examples include Google Maps which is an installed App which allows you access saved directions offline, or search for new directions while you have internet access.
