5 key aspects concerning web application design #Birmingham
Mobile and web applications are usually complex projects that require careful consideration of various aspects. Here, we describe the three most important topics when creating an application.
1. Creating a brief for web application
The brief (specification) contains the purpose of the application, a description of the target group, and a list of all the functionalities that the web application will have. Creating a specification allows for proper planning, estimating the budget required for the application, and organising the development process.
2. Technologies used to develop web apps
The choice of technologies for the web application depends on its type, purpose, and budget for development and expansion. The right choice of technologies ensures that the application is efficient, visually appealing, and functional. It is also important to consider future scalability. For creating web applications, we often use well-established solutions supported by their creators, such as Vue.js, React.js, Laravel, Django, TensorFlow, Keras, or PyTorch.
3. Web apps performance
The loading time of a web application depends on various factors. The most important ones are the server's computing power, the application's architecture, and code optimisation. Insufficient data handling can lead to a high server load and increased maintenance costs.
4. Web application interface design
The graphical interface of the web application should be user-friendly and visually appealing. The design should be in line with UI and UX trends. It is crucial for the web application to be responsive and display correctly on screens of different sizes (tablets, smartphones, laptops, etc.)
We prefer the Scrum / Agile method in creating web apps. This methodology allows for relatively fast and flexible project completion. It involves creating a list of app functions, setting priorities, and working in iterative "sprints." Each sprint, typically lasting 1 to 4 weeks, introduces new functionalities. After each sprint, the client and the team of programmers discuss the changes and establish new purposes and their priorities.
