Web development transforms your vision for a website into a functioning product. Whether you have a website that needs maintenance or you want to create a website from the ground up, hiring a web developer lays the foundation for a value-driving product.

Web development teams follow different development processes like Agile or Waterfall and specialize in various development languages and content management systems (CMS). So, choosing the best web development company depends on the technologies you need.

We suggest focusing on website performance since it plays an important role in how search engines rank web pages. Make sure to ask web development agencies about their familiarity with optimizing for page speed.

Luckily, the United Kingdom has some of the best web development agency to hire. Use our list to find and connect with web development agency in the UK. Evaluate their case studies, project types, and client reviews to determine which company is the best fit for you.

What Are the Latest Web Development Trends?

The latest web development trends include, but are not limited to, the following:

  1. Artificial intelligence and chatbots
  2. Progressive web apps
  3. Accelerated mobile pages
  4. Voice search optimization
  5. Motion UI
  6. Blockchain Technology

Artificial Intelligence and Chatbots

Automated communications continue to be a significant trend. Not only are AI chatbots and virtual assistants more prominent this year but also the growth of these applications continues to slow the hiring rate of customer service professionals.

Progressive Web Apps

Progressive web applications (PWA) delivered through the web is the most popular web programming trend. PWA enables website browsing to replicate native mobile applications. This capability, in turn, makes those applications more user friendly. Companies that use PWA include Forbes, Twitter, and Alibaba.

Accelerated Mobile Pages

Accelerated Mobile Page (AMPs) is a Google-created open-source library. AMPs simplify website and app creation and speed page load time. As a result, AMPs help websites load pages instantly.

Voice Search Optimization

The future of web development continues to lean toward voice while being less reliant on text. Like Apple's Siri and Amazon's Alexa, more devices will rely on voice to execute commands. The ability to recognize individual voices will become more prominent. This advancement will apply not only to online searches but also to smart devices and appliances.

Motion UI

Because it provides multiple, predefined motions ideal for web design, Motion UI becomes more prominent each year. Motion UI allows brands and developers to capture users' attention by incorporating visually stunning animations designed and developed to keep visitors on websites longer.

Blockchain Technology

Blockchain technology is not just for investing in cryptocurrencies. While blockchain-related digital wallets and banking transactions are more prominent today, blockchain platforms enable smart contracts and cross-border finance through web-based tools.

Should You Make a Website for Your Business?

Yes; you should make a website for your business. Unlike 25 years ago, when only a few companies had websites, today’s environment requires every business to have an online presence. A website is the primary reservoir of information and communication for your target audience, and now, even replaces a physical, brick-and-mortar location for e-commerce businesses.

The biggest challenge for companies is not if they need one but how to develop a website. There are various options available for companies that need a website, from turnkey platforms that provide everything from blogs and shopping cart capability to robust platforms that call for professional web development resources.

The best option for your business is to hire a website developer. Outsourcing web development allows you to outsource design and development to a developer or development company that has the expertise to build what you need and deliver it on time and within budget.
