8 Predictions about 2023 for Developers

/10 Predictions about 2019 for Developers.jpg

1. TypeScript 

TypeScript will continue to grow in 2023. TypeScript is growing by the day. Even few of the longtime React experts seem to be migrating and skilling on Type Script.

2. GraphQL

GraphQL is an open-source data query and manipulation language for APIs, and a runtime for fulfilling queries with existing data. GraphQL was developed internally by Facebook in 2012 before being publicly released in 2015. It will grow significantly in 2023. REST and GraphQL APIs are just efficient ways to call functions over a network. If you are familiar with building a REST API, implementing a GraphQL API won’t feel too different.

3. The use of cloud technology would be at its peak

More companies would choose private cloud or multi-cloud infrastructure to execute and enhance their business operations. Web developers should brush up their cloud computing skills. Mid-sized enterprise may develop separate teams for dealing with cloud-based web products.

4. ChatGPT to Dall-E: Unique AI tools need to try out in 2023

5. Mobile first design 

A mobile-first approach involves creating a desktop site from the mobile versions. Small screen design is easier to adapt for larger screens, in contrast to a traditionally adapted desktop site.

Here are some benefits of choosing mobile-first:

  • Increases user experience
  • Easy to optimize the mobile-first responsive design
  • Google loves mobile-first designs
  • Content is easy to share with other website users

6. Rust to take major C++ market share

Rust is an exciting programming language that has an attractive growth rate. Even though it’s only been publicly available for ten years or so, many developers are starting to use it because of its stability and better compatibility with other languages.

Rust has a bright future ahead of itself in 2023. It has a lot of potential to make systems programming easier for everyone, and it’s already proving that it’s dependable and safe for large enterprise companies as well.

NextJS is  also using Rust. Turbopack is an incremental bundler optimised for JavaScript and TypeScript, written in Rust, and built into Next.JS 13.

7. Progressive Web Apps 

Among the top trends in web development, Progressive Web App (PWA) technology. A PWA is a web application that works as a site with an almost full native mobile app experience. It runs independently of the browser and interacts with the customer as a native mobile app.

Let’s look into the pros of PWA development in more detail and see what positive changes they bring to both users and business owners:

  • Reduced development and support costs
  • Quick launch to the market
  • Easy distribution
  • Smooth installation
  • Saving device power and storage
  • High speed
  • Offline app usage
  • Boosted website’s engagement and conversion
  • Seamless maintenance and updating

 8. Augmented reality (WebAR)

The next one of the top web development trends in 2023 is Augmented Reality (AR).

Even though this may be a challenge for e-commerce brands of all sizes, use cases for AR technology to enhance UX will continue to be a priority in 2023 . Amazon, Sephora, IKEA, and MOSCOT are prominent examples of e-commerce brands that use AR.

Here, you can see a video that demonstrates Flipkart's augmented reality app.
