Which web development language is the best for my project?
This question is one of the most frequent queries within customers, sadly it doesn’t have a determined answer.are chosen according to the requirements each client has, meaning all technologies used in each project are thought for each task or feature that is desired.
If you are new to software development, it might be tough to communicate with a web development company, and, certainly, the thoughest thing is to decide how to start your project. The good news is that we are here to help you understand the scope of your project and what language is best suited for it.
Web Development Languages
There are many languages you can use to program your web app or desktop app and there are sets of tools required to program and create the right environment for a project. Having said that, here’s a list of the most used web development languages according to our experience.
Simple, lightweight and it can be used directly with any browser.
Node.js is a lean, fast, cross-platform useful for both servers and desktop applications.
It’s a quick and easy server side scripting language for web development and general use.
PHP stands for “Hypertext Preprocessor” and is known as a server-side language since it runs only on the hosting server and the end user cannot “see” the PHP script. It provides a fast loading speed and its code processing is faster than similar technologies like ASP. It is one of the most flexible technologies out there in the market and it may be used with many frameworks and automation tools.
Thousands of third-party libraries make Python a popular and versatile language
Python is a general-purpose, object-oriented and high-level programming language that supports modules and packages, which encourages program modularity and code reuse. It has a greater extension of libraries, it’s dynamic and is also extensively found in other languages like C, C++, it poses a unit testing framework and its scalable multi-protocol.
Ruby on Rails minimizes website development time in about 30-40% due to the lean code base, modular design and its capacity to be used with plugin solutions.
Often shortened to Rails or RoR, Ruby on Rails is an open source web application framework for the Ruby programming language. It is intended to be used with Agile development methodologies for rapid development. Since it is agile and it has libraries of already made plugins, it helps save time while its consistency creates efficiency through standardization. It holds great quality and promotes bug free development.
Selecting a Programing Language
Just as English is used for businesses, and French is known as the language of love, so too different programming languages are meant for different purposes. Before choosing one of the above, you should first ask yourself the following:
- What special features do I require from my website?
- How much time am I willing to invest in managing and maintaining the site?
- How tech savvy is my organization?
- What tools like CRMs or Databases do I need to integrate with the website?
- What budget am I willing to invest in this project?
There are of course many things to consider before making this decision. However, we are here to walk you through them and the languages. If you are looking for great quality and sustainability, feel free to reach out to us for an assessment.
