Industry Spotlight: Web Development Tools, Frameworks Evolve Quickly

Changes in technology have led to changes in how web applications are created. And that has caused some consternation among web developers.

A decade ago, the development choice was to use .NET or Java, which meant WPF or ASP.NET for Microsoft developers. Java has been a bread-and-butter language for a long time, so that’s a safe bet. And Microsoft was known for 10-plus years of support for technologies, and even when they changed, the company always made sure everything was backward-compatible. So that was also seen as a safe bet.

Why Future Applications Must Be Cognitive-First

Software, like bread, has changed. Up until somewhere around the 1960s or 1970s, bread came in one packet, made of one type of flour, formed into one basic shape – across most world cultures.

There is software application development, or programming if you wish to use the term.
