Mahipal Nehra

Once in a while, you or the organisation you work for requires software applications to automate the work for increasing productivity but you might not have the clue about where to find software developers but this article will enlighten you about this topic. Software development consists of standalone software applications, Web applications & Mobile Applications, out of these Web application development is the most populous trend that is overtaking standalone software application development.

Web application development is being preferred because the software is rendered on end user’s screen through the web which makes it platform independent, the end user’s system configured with low-end hardware can also run this web application easily.

One can find Software developers from multiple platforms but he/she first need to know how many types of developers are there and who should they hire to resolve their problems.

Types of Software & Web App Developers

Front End Developer

Front End Development means functionality built with the code will render on the user end. Front End is usually developed with JavaScript and its frameworks. The most popular JavaScript frameworks among developers that are trending these days are as follows:

Angular Development

The angular framework is developed by Google, the framework is based on typescript (typescript is a superset of JavaScript) and works with DOM (Data Object Model). Google has recently launched the 7th version of angular, over the past couple of years angular has developed huge community support because it is a great framework to develop complex code components.

React js Development

React Js framework is developed by Facebook, the framework is based on JavaScript and works with virtual DOM (Data Object Model) that renders only the changes when code components are modified. The biggest benefit for reacting is that it enables developers to create code components in a central location and use it with simple JavaScript calls wherever in conventional method the developer will have to create a model and then do routing to create and use a subcomponent in the code. In short, the development time and time to create the DOM is less in React js Development.

Vue js Development

Vue js is a framework is developed by Evan You, the framework is based on JavaScript and works with virtual DOM (Data Object Model) that renders only the changes when code components are modified. Vue Js is stagnantly becoming popular due to the small learning curve and high code reusability which makes the development easy and less time taking.

D3 js Development

D3 js framework (D3 for Data-Driven Documents) is a JavaScript library for producing dynamic & interactive data visualizations in web browsers. It makes use of the widely implemented SVG, HTML5, and CSS standards, in contrast to many other libraries D3 js allows great control over the final visual result.

Canvas js Development

Canvas js supports 30 different types of Charts that render across devices including iPhone, iPad, Android, Mac & PCs. This allows developers to create rich dashboards that work across devices without compromising on maintainability or functionality of web applications. Graphs include several good-looking themes and are 10 times faster than conventional Flash / SVG based Charting Libraries – resulting in a lightweight, beautiful and responsive dashboards.

Back End Developer

Back End Development means functionality built with the code will render on the server end. Back End can be developed with object-oriented programming and JavaScript based frameworks. The most popular frameworks among developers that are trending these days are as follows:

Java Development

Java is developed by Oracle and it is one of the oldest and widely supported programming languages, it will not be wrong to say that it is the most popular programming language among developers. The security, support and functionalities of java are endless which made it little difficult to work with but thanks to Java 11 version most of those complexities have been eliminated.

PHP Development

PHP is influenced by Perl, java C & C++ and it is one of the oldest and widely supported programming languages, it will not be wrong to say that it is one of the most popular programming languages among developers. PHP is used in developing Facebook but the main problem with this framework is that it requires external libraries for implementing a high level of security.

Node Js Development

Node js lets developers use JavaScript to write command line tools and for server-side scripting—running scripts server-side to produce dynamic web page content before the page is sent to the client's web browser, the motive to develop Node js is to build projects that can be debugged in run time and reach zero downtime.

MEAN Stack Developer

MEAN stack developers are those who are proficient in prominent JavaScript frameworks and database handling. MEAN is an acronym for Mongo, Express js, Angular & Node js which are described in the following section:

Mongo Development

Mongo DB is a cross-platform document-oriented open source NoSQL database that is widely being used in most of the projects.

Express Js Development

Express js or simply Express is a web application framework for Node js released as free and open-source software under the MIT License. It is called the de facto standard server framework for Node js which is designed for building web applications and APIs.

Angular Development

Angular is already discussed in the above section.

Node Js Development

Node js development has already been discovered above. Node js is being used by online media streaming giants like Netflix and other web applications that requires zero downtime.

Full Stack Developer

Full stack developers are those who can work on front end development, back end development, database integration & management. These types of developers have a better understanding of the project and they can help the client to develop the project in the best possible way in terms of cost & performance.

Dev Ops Engineer

Dev Ops Engineer has the knowledge of development, testing and deployment. The responsibilities of Dev Ops Engineer are to bridge the gap between development, testing & deployment so that the code deployed on the client side is bug-free to the best of his/her knowledge.

Mobile App Developer

Android App Development

Android apps can be written in Java, C++ and Kotlin the official development kit is offered by Google but there are more than a dozen third-party Android development platforms available in the market.

iOS App Development

iOS apps are written in Swift and there is a huge demand for iOS developers but the availability is quite less as compared to Android app developers because iOS apps just bound the developers to limited apps and working on Swift. Therefore, iOS app developers usually charge more than android app developers.

Ecommerce Software Development Companies

UI/UX Designer

The work UI designer is to develop wireframes, mock-ups and design graphics related stuff with tools like Photoshop, Illustrator, Coral Draw, Maya and many more. The UX design is made by UX designer with HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Bootstrap, Material and other design related tech stack.

The extensive competition in IT companies has compelled them to reduce the development time which can be reduced only if there is a high level of communication and understanding among developers and designers. Therefore, companies trained their UI designers to work as UX designer and front end developers which enabled the designers to know how to develop designs effectively so that it can be developers with almost no modifications in the later development stage.
