8 Web Development Trends To Look Out For In 2017

In recent years, the web has been getting more and more ingrained in our daily lives. We use it for everything, from shopping, to banking, to reading our news. The demand for web development talent is as high as ever, and the scope of what developers can do is huge!

As 2016 draws to an end, I can’t help but wonder what 2017 will have in store for us. Will the web weave its way into even more areas of our life?

Here’s my list of the main players that I think will reshape the tech landscape in 2017!

1. Artificial intelligence

Whenever you talk about the future of technology, artificial intelligence (AI) is always high on the agenda. But right now, I think it is actually justified. A lot of advances have been made in the field of AI in the last year.

AlphaGo, a program built by Google DeepMind, became the first program to beat a professional Go player.

With easier access to the necessary tools for AI development, we can expect developers to start using AI in new and different ways in the new year.

One such example is AI-driven web site creation. For example if you sign up for The Grid, Molly your AI web designer will ask you questions about branding, colors, layout and content, and then, based on pre-programmed algorithms, automatically create an aesthetic website for you. You can ask Molly to update the website as many times as you like, until you get it just right. (All the while contributing to the machine’s learning.)

2. Virtual reality

Another topic that always seems to surface when discussing the future of technology is virtual reality or VR. This trend has already started to sweep the gaming industry. The Oculus Rift and the Vive bring new and interesting possibilities to the world of gaming, but it won’t stop there.

Companies including Google and Mozilla have begun work on APIs to help VR technology transition to the web. As standards develop, we expect more and more applications to be developed using VR technologies.

In the coming year, we’ll see virtual reality in various applications, ranging from news coverage, to virtual real estate tours.
