This April Provectus sponsored an event that has become a staple in modern web development world – the Bulgaria Web Summit.
As we came back home from our travels, we sat down to summarize everything we learned from the event. In case you missed it, and cannot wait to visit Bulgaria Web Summit 2016, here’s a quick roundup on everything Web development. Fresh from the stove.
HTML5, CSS3, Bootstrap remain essential for adaptive and responsive design, while the knowledge of JS and the use of jQuery and Ajax are essential for pretty much every web software programming project. For more complex projects, the leaders are Phonegap, AngularJS, Meteor and Backbone. In the world of testing, the winners are Jasmin, Karma, and Selenium.
ES6 will not remove the bad parts. It will likely add more bad parts. There will always be a need for good practice. Douglas Crockford
And we still love it.
Laravel, Symphony, CodeIgniter were the top-3 most talked about things at the Summit. PHP frameworks are helping web developers fulfill tasks easier and with less hassle. They open new vistas for being more efficient and precise in their web application development and design.
We cannot forget the buzz about many PHP people shifting towards other programming languages like Ruby and Python. Some say that they are overtaking PHP because of better abstractions, productivity, and better coding practices like Test Driven Development. It’s almost easier to deploy Ruby or Python than add mod_php to Apache these days. There is a perception among the web development masses that Ruby and Python programmers are perceived as “better” programmers, and more desirable hires. Even so, there is little if any doubt that an experienced team using Symfony or Cake can be just as productive as a team using Rails or Django.
It’s just there always will be a obscure language X that’s favored by hackers and academics, but has no obvious business. LISP remains such a language for half a century now, alongside with Haskell, OCAML or Scala. Is this even worth the hype?
