Fast paced nature of technology improvements have revolutionised the way businesses conduct their day to day work, from mobile communication to modern desktop based application.
At first applications were entirely scripted top to bottom for all interactions with the app, structuring the data in non standard data formats in order to reduce the app being reverse engineered. The newer revolution of technology encourages a more interopable approach to such developments, standardised data types, governing bodies over seeing developments to standards, standard coding approaches, standardised design principles (UX), connections to API’s storing JSON or XML formats publicly.
We are seeing object based drag and drop functionality with rich graphical user interfaces to aid the quick development of modern day functional Applications.
Take for example WordPress (WP) through years of research & development the design & functional offerings are enormous in terms of creating aesthetically pleasing websites with all the functions/features expected in modern day web applications the difference here is theirs no coding experience required just some determination.
We use to wireframe everything but in today’s era its just as quick to mock up a beta version of an app, especially the case when developing apps for functionality as opposed to aesthetics, this approach is often used in Rapid Application Development models to speed up the overall development time, the time is further reduced when using code less solutions to construct the application.
