01. PWAs take off

Progressive sầu website apps (PWAs) will continue khổng lồ gain traction this year. We"re finally in a situation where almost all browsers support PWAs’ modern web features (including Service Workers), which means businesses can start to lớn use this approach to offer a smooth, more app-like experience through the điện thoại web.

James Kurczodymãng cầu, director of giải pháp công nghệ at FINE, points out that browsers are adopting more native sầu sản phẩm điện thoại features. "We may see Apple push back in an effort khổng lồ force developers khổng lồ submit all apps through the App Store, but other device manufactures will roll out the red carpet for PWAs," he explains. "Nonetheless, PWAs will become a popular first choice in thiết bị di động app development."


02. AI gets personal

We"ve sầu been talking about it for a while now, but artificial intelligence is still big news. "Machine learning is going to take analytics to the next level," says Carl Bergenhem, product manager at Kenvì. Previously, analytics would log data that could be used to lớn guide subsequent releases. Bergenhem thinks that going forward the data we capture will be fed baông chồng và our sites và apps will adapt khổng lồ it on their own.(A decent web hosting service will help with analytics.)

"This means that, depending on the data available on a user, the application will be able khổng lồ act lượt thích a chameleon và change itself lớn provide the ikhuyến mãi UX for them," he explains. "This will create truly personalised sites that behave sầu differently & show different features depending on the individual using it."

03. Performance metrics shift

"Web performance metrics will likely shift toward a more user-centric mã sản phẩm, which will help developers and designers take a more holistic approach," predicts Emmanuel Garcia, senior frontkết thúc developer at FINE.


Garcia suggests more web pros will adopt Google"s RAIL Mã Sản Phẩm, which breaks down the user"s experience into four key interactions: response, animation, idle & load. "This type of approach will help developers by providing a structure for their performance tests as well as setting benchmarks lớn ayên for based on a user’s perceived performance," he adds.

04. Voice interfaces take over



Soon, voice will start khổng lồ take over from traditional inputs

"With the explosion of voice assistants such as Alexa & Siri, conversational interfaces are bound to become a natural part of an application"s fabric," says Bergenhem. "As users become accustomed to interacting with the web using their voice, developers will need lớn ensure they can offer a seamless experience, even in website applications." He suggests a situation where a user can view their social truyền thông feed or ask a virtual assistant to lớn find & read a news article, all whilst they"re sat on their sofa, with no need for traditional inputs.

05. Accessibility becomes a requirement

For too long, accessibility has been seen as a desirable add-on. Soon, it"s going to lớn become an absolute requirement, with companies following accessibility guidelines lượt thích WCAG 2.1 và WAI-ARIA right from the start of a product"s journey.

"Whether it comes from development practices naturally emphasising accessibility, or governments & legislature stepping in to enforce adherence, we will have sầu more accessible applications," says Bergenhem.

06. Web apps get an AR makeover



Augmented reality will take the web by storm in 2019. Already firmly in the mainstream with things like Snapchat filters or Pokétháng Go, AR is set khổng lồ expvà past social media và games into lớn everyday applications.The benefit AR has over VR is that it doesn"t require a clunky (or expensive) VR headmix – it"s accessible via the smartphones most of us carry in our pockets.

"Why should AR be limited to lớn just the native di động applications on a device? Why not use it on the web?" comments Bergenhem. "Offering AR services through your website application without needing it to lớn be installed as a native sầu tiện ích can have sầu huge benefits from a UX perspective.

"Imagine being in a grocery store và doing a quichồng website search for a recipe. AR integration could provide users with turn-by-turn navigation through their thiết bị di động device khổng lồ find all the ingredients within that store – all within a web ứng dụng."

07. Developers floông chồng to the web

"Frameworks such as NativeScript & React Native will play a big part in bringing more developers lớn website technologies, since they provide a single codebase for web và native di động applications," says Bergenhem. "Additionally, concepts lượt thích PWAs will continue khổng lồ blur the line between native mobile apps & web. Developers will then be able khổng lồ purely focus on the user experience without worrying about specific platkhung choices."

Web Assembly is another giải pháp công nghệ bringing more developers to lớn the website. "Thanks lớn Web Assembly, C++, C#, Rust and other programming languages can now target the web. Projects lượt thích Blazor, which leverages .NET in the website, take advantage of the promise of Web Assembly & will help open the website lớn even more languages," adds Bergenhem. "This means that in the future, all developers can be website developers, regardless of programming language."

08. Size matters again

Size was once a major focus for developers, but recently we"ve seen this focus taking a back seat, and the average application has grown significantly in form size. Although bandwidth has increased significantly, it"s important to rethành viên that not all users will be able lớn benefit from this.

"The kích cỡ of our applications will hit a tipping point and we will see the trend go the other way, with devs once again taking pride in making their applications as small as possible," says Bergenhem. "This not only means tiện ích that will feel faster, but it"s also important for markets with slow and expensive sầu mạng internet connections, where every byte is precious."

09. AMP. backlash continues

AMPhường – Google"s Accelerated Smartphone Pages project – has caused concern due to lớn the fact that it stands to lớn increase Google"s dominance on the website. "The backlash against Google’s AMPhường will continue lớn grow," says Kurczodymãng cầu. "We’ll hear of more big names de-AMPing their websites, while Google tries to lớn add features & pivot lớn keep the project going."

10. The workforce gets more diverse



Online courses make training more accessible for more people

Shifting the focus khổng lồ the industry as a whole, we"re going to lớn see the protệp tin of the average developer change. As coding bootcamps & online coding courses open up possibilities in education and reach new audiences, we"re welcoming more diversity inlớn the workforce.

"The emphasis on learning the basic tools and concepts of development & then continuing this education on the job is already proving lớn be a very good way of creating great developers," says Bergenhem. "This trkết thúc will most likely continue và is a big step on the way khổng lồ create a richer and more diverse community of developers, which is ultimately better for everyone."

11. The JavaScript ecosystem stabilises

"In 2019 we’ll see some much-needed stabilisation of the JavaScript ecosystem. From package managers lượt thích npm and Yarn to lớn build tools like webpaông xã, many solutions are putting down roots in the right places & affirming themselves as "safe picks" for enterprise users và small teams alike," says Aaron Ransley, senior frontover developer at brand agency FINE.

Ransley also predicts the continued growth of serverless infrastructure. "Rather than running entire virtual servers, many developers are reaching for small function runtimes that live sầu in AWS or Azure," he comments. "These solutions offer the security and power of server-side computation without the overhead of an entire Unix VPS. The result is a healthy productivity boost, especially for solo developers and small teams."
