DZone – Tom Smith – 10/23/17
[Ed. Note: Pete Chestna, Director of Developer Engagement, Veracode spoke with DZone on the future of web application development.]
To gather insights on the state of web application development today, we spoke with 12 executives who are familiar with the current state of the industry and asked them, "What’s the future of web applications from your point of view - where do the greatest opportunities lie?" Here's what they told us:
Collaborative development tools. Currently, web-based collaboration ends at the mockup phase. We see room for technologies that allow a team to collaboratively develop an application up to the point of implementing multiple screens and transitions, data entry and validation rules, conditionally shown components, simple workflows, and other standard interactions, *before* developers go into an IDE and start writing code.
