Technology changes constantly, so to be at the top of your game as a web developer, it’s vital you’re keeping up .
Web development is progressing at incredible speed these days and trends that were hot in 2016, today will be considered nothing less than archaic. Users are having more control and power and companies are shifting their services according to the user needs, which may be unpredictable.
Here are some of the trends that we have observed through this year:
Artificial Intelligence (AI)
AI is something that is shaking the modern IT world the world over. Companies are competing against each other to hire the best talent in the industry.Google and Facebook are some of the companies who have well implemented AI and this is through face recognition. The importance of AI is explained by the fact that it allow devices to act independently aka without manpower and this leads to increased efficiency, accuracy and overall better user experience.
Internet of Things (IoT)
Internet of Things is all about making devices smart and enabling them to communicate with each other. Looking at this with regards to website development we perceive a time where apps will be developed to allow for remote control of even homes. We are seeing smart homes being developed where everything will be controlled from your phone/tablet.

The language grammar and efficiency of writing the apps were improved and overall, JS is now the most popular language among full stack developers.
We are used to boring and old-fashioned bots but 2017 seems to level them up. Now bots are intended to become more personalized in order to provide better user experience, which, again is a huge marketing advantage.
Bots are now able to react more “human-like” and give personalized advice, for example, during shopping. Developers are trying to eliminate the feeling that you are talking to a machine and instead, turn the conversation with a bot into fun and useful process.
