Website application development has gained momentum recently as more and more businesses now use the power of the internet to offer their products and services. 

Not sure how to create a website application?

We have outlined some useful tips that will help you excel in the field of web app development process.

1. Business analysis

When creating a web app, you must first identify the problem that needs to be solved.

Ask these questions:

  • What problem are you trying to solve?
  • What purpose will this app serve? 
  • Who is your target audience? 

Before starting development, you should:

  • analyze business requirements and market conditions
  • find out the target audience of a digital product
  • understand its product functionality
  • check competitors

Once you understand your intentions for developing web applications, it’s time to move forward with researching the market.

2. Research the market

You need to do some deep research about upcoming trends.

The more knowledge you have about any given market segment, the better equipped you are to launch a product or service within it.

3. Build a prototype

A prototype is not a finished product but a mock-up of what the final app will look like and how users will interact with it. You can create a high-fidelity prototype from your favourite tools. 

4. Build the app

The adaptive layout of a web application is how an interface design gets implemented on different devices.

Developing the server- and client-side of the program is the main stage in the development of web applications.

You can use them to build almost any kind of app on top of standard web technologies like:

FRONTEND: Angular, HTML5, Angular Material, Typescript

BACKEND: Java, Spring, Hibernate

CLOUD & DATA: AWS, Postgresql, GCP, Redshift, Azure, AWS S3, MySQL

5. Test the application

It is inevitable that small or large bugs will eventually slip through and end up in production.

Web application testing occurs not only at the final release stage but also during the development process.

A well-planned testing strategy can reduce the risk of launching an unstable product and save time resolving bugs after launch.

6. Support & maintenance

Launching and technical support mean hosting a web application in the cloud with subsequent maintenance services.

Developing a web app isn’t cheap. It requires time, money, and an excellent team to get the job done.
