With innovative devices like Google Glass coming out and Apple Watch to launch shortly, we can expect a high impact on hardware assortment and configuration that is going to change the way web development takes place.
Increasing focus on security
While the web app usability and technology interface has gone better with time, security has struggled to keep good with this rise. According to a recent study, it has been found that more than 95% of web applications are threatened with at least one ‘severe vulnerability’. That’s going to be a sign of worry for developers in 2015 which they need to work upon to get right on track with security issues that are emerging at a considerable pace.
Greater emphasis on tools
It is not that the tools we use for development got complicated overnight. But the tools and environments we work with today are highly complex and you need to go through each detail and learn each mode precisely to use them with efficiency. In order to work optimally you need to thoroughly understand architectural approach, databases, web assortments and detailed references with which you need to work. Quite demanding is that!
More focus on user experience
One thing that you can’t do without today is the right user experience. The things kept changing slowly. Today we have most gadgets and displays being worked upon to serve balanced object module with the right interface to dish up best of user experience. Your fight with these requirements is only going to get harsher this time. Intuitive interfaces and sleek designs will continue to rule the ideas. Get prepared to take this year’s inputs and efforts to the next level.
