Tailor-made development to grow your business – Definitions
Web development is the building and maintenance of websites; it’s the work that happens behind the scenes to make a website or a web application look great, work fast and perform well with a perfect user experience.
Web developers do this by using a variety of coding languages. The languages they use depends on the types of tasks they are preforming and the platforms on which they are working.
The field of web development is generally broken down into front-end (the user-facing side) and back-end (the server side).
Mobile development is the building and maintenance of mobile applications; it’s the work that happens behind the scenes to make a mobile application look great, work fast and perform well with a perfect user experience.
Mobile developers do this by using a variety of coding languages and platforms. A mobile application should at least be available on Android and Ios exploitation systems.
Here at webstreet agency, all our mobile applications are developed on both those platforms. We use the framework Xamarin, which enables to have a native and multi-platform approach.
Some native functionalities of mobile devices can thus be used fully, the camera for instance.
API stands for Application Programming Interface. In basic terms, APIs are a set of functions and procedures that allow for the creation of applications. They access the data and features of other applications, services, or operating systems.
To make it simple, they’re a go-between for different software platforms. They allow two unrelated applications to “talk” to each other.
For example, let’s say you’re a stockbroker, specialized in the financial markets and trading. An API may link a set of automated trading algorithms to the trader’s preferred trading broker platform. This allows to see real-time quotes and price data or conduct electronic trades. Or, you are an estate agent. You want to broadcast your goods to as much as websites as possible without copy pasting your adverts. By developing an API, you can easily link all your adverts to the other websites.
