According to the reports of a Google engineer, the scope of web application will vast and it might be able to even go beyond applications in terms of usability and functionality. This all can be achieved if the developers are given more programming languages.
During a recent conference of programmers in NY, one of the Google engineers, Gilad said, one should be provided with more feasible programming languages. He also stated that the web platform can completely transform the exiting web applications in comparison to the native applications.
Pros and Cons- Developers are able to rely on the web applications as they don’t need installation and allow the user to access it on any platform which can support web. The drawback being it relies on network connectivity. So using the web application offline will be a critical issue atleast for the users who don’t have the option of constant connectivity.
Reliability on the web is completely individualistic as one might have network connectivity but have slow connection or might be getting charged to use it. Most of the time and areas the web connection is always available. Due to this any web programming language should have an associated system, which will enable it to store the data and program file for offline usage.
Depending on this, the programmers in the future should be able to use newer form of web languages which will help in building and testing of the application. The development of new web application will become a lot easier with the introduction of more web programming language.
On one hand, in Elm the user can place a code in the editor and preview the results, lively editor also can be manipulated. The developers can manipulate and develop different controls. This new approach will come in the aid of the user wherein they don’t need to scan through hundreds and thousands of files like one in Eclipse (Standard IDE). The modification of a particular section of the file can be a lot easier with this approach.
