Joomla Web Development - Past, Present and Future!

By: Roxanne Tanner

Back then website content was really basic, they were mostly full of text with the occasional image, and even that usually had to be captured by a decent photographer, or it was copied and pasted from the internet itself.


These daysí web design and development has come on leaps and bounds and it is almost comical to look back in history to remember what the first websites available were like. If you go any website today, there are lots of interactive features like plugins and widgets, content is a lot more customer engaging through means of video links, pictures, GIFs, and social media links, navigational functions have been streamlined, and web pages load in seconds not minutes. Basically the majority of modern websites provide highly interactive experiences for all their visitors, to ensure that they will be back again to potentially enlist their services.


Thanks to advances in technology there are so many different types of web development solutions available, and itís simply a case of choosing a platform and solution that works for you. Solutions like Java and .Net are great for large businesses who plan to make their website available for 100ís of users, and for those businesses who want to integrate large databases, although tools and data to build these websites can be limited. Open source solutions however tend to be most favourable as the developer of the technology will have full access to all the tools available, and the development itself can be highly cost effective. As it stands some of the most popular open source solutions in the market are Magento, Drupal, Wordpress, PHP, and Prestashop.


Joomla is also a very popular open source technology as it has a dynamic CMS tool that enables a variety of staff to edit the content within a website such as text, graphics, video, documents and much more. The latest version of the solution offers a greater level of security, faster loading speeds so no waiting for pages to load, responsive in its design meaning that it is accessible on any device and will look the same, more extensions and plugins are available to allow you to customise your Joomla website how you like it, and it also has an easy multi-lingual setup as it supports 64 different languages.


With the industry changing as drastically as it is, who knows what websites will look like and how they will function in another 15 years. As all technology is changing to smart technology combining IoT (Internet of Things), it might be that anyone and everyone will be able to develop a website. Maybe mobile Apps might continue to grow so much so that websites as such donít even really exist? Smart devices are on the rise and maybe there will be another way to access the internet other than through a website or mobile app. When the sky is the limit anything is possible, and I truly cannot wait to see what the future holds.
