What are the best backend language for mobile app and web development?

With the boom in mobile app development and mobile app design, people have constantly been looking for easy and suitable alternatives to try a hand in these fields. Are you too in search of some of such software or languages to ease your quest? Well, here is the answer for you. Let’s dive in and see suitable languages and suggestions that will enhance your experience and help you keep up with the pace as the system progresses.

  1. For budding software developers

HTML (HyperText Markup Language) is one of the languages a beginner must get accustomed to before the person learns to code. Its simple commands and features serve as a great interactive platform with easy and quick execution. Before any person progresses to any other language, it is highly recommended to start the basics with HTML. Some of the disadvantages of working with HTML include the limitations it provides. Though easy to load and run over the browser, HTML does not provide many features to the user. Thus, it has to be paired up with other languages to do away with it.

For an aspiring mobile app developer, nothing could be a better starting point than Javascript. With its advent in the 80s, Java has taken over the world by a faint due to its ease of understanding, simplicity, and easy access. Java Script’s versatility in today’s world cannot be denied, for it can be seen from frontend development to competitive coding. Some of its key features worth noting include its OOPS (Object Oriented Programming Language) format. This allows Java to be platform-independent along with the allowance to run the code anywhere on the system. It provides an allowance for other programming languages to work in parallel to improve the quality.

One of the undeniable benefits of using Java is the reduction in the server load it provides to the user. But it comes with its own set of shortcomings. A single error does not allow the Java program to execute further, thus freezing further proceedings over it. This increases the difficulty in debugging the program. It provides different results over different browsers, thus disrupting the uniformity sought by mobile app development services.

  • Want to scale up? Then there you go.

To overcome some of the difficulties provided by Java, we have C++, which cuts down certain loopholes. Similar to Java, it offers platform independence and eases in developing logic, structure and procedures. It also allows manipulation of data on a specific level providing complete authority over the memory.

Some of the shortcomings that C++ cannot do away with includes lack of background garbage collector. This leads to unnecessary memory allocation issues providing errors in the execution of the program. It has a complex structure, including aspects such as friends functions, pointers which only add to the complexity of the programming language.

Coming to mobile app design services forms another key component of any application, providing the user’s first impression of the application. It requires a certain level of imaginative aspect on the developer’s side, but a few tools could ease out our task if handled properly. Let’s briefly discuss some of these.

  • Looking for better features? Give them a try.

Python is a great approach to start with web-dev. Its simple, user-friendly feature makes it amicable. It is a lighter app compared to its rivals, making it easier to operate over the computer without acquiring much of the storage provided. Its features like Machine learning and the Internet of Things (IoT) makes it suitable to work with. Some leading tech giants rely on Python for the features it provides.

Ruby is another renowned name in mobile app development services. They provide a developer-friendly interface to work with similar to Python, eventually increasing the developer’s productivity and increasing the speed of the process. Ruby is highly based on some prominent programming languages like Perl, Lisp, Eiffel, providing a plethora of features, namely- automatic garbage collection, flexibility, scalability etc.

What is the best choice for me?

Summing it up, the choice of the platform language is highly subjective depending upon the prior knowledge, exposure one has and the kind of work they do—the choice of the device they choose to work on plays an important role here. But nothing can stop a curious mind from exploring and indulging deep in endless possibilities that will come. It is only a matter of exploration and curiosity that sets one free from any restrictions.
