Web Applications are dynamic web sites combined with server side programming which provide functionalities such as interacting with users, connecting to back-end databases, and generating results to browsers.
Examples of Web Applications are Online Banking, Social Networking, Online Reservations, eCommerce / Shopping Cart Applications, Interactive Games, Online Training, Online Polls, Blogs, Online Forums, Content Management Systems, and so on.
There are two main categories of coding, scripting and programming for creating Web Applications:
1. Client Side Scripting / Coding - Client Side Scripting is the type of code that is executed or interpreted by browsers.
Client Side Scripting is generally viewable by any visitor to a site (from the view menu click on "View Source" to view the source code).
Below are some Client Side technologies we use everyday at Near Coding:
HTML and HTML5 (HyperText Markup Language)
CSS (Cascading Style Sheets)
Sass and LESS (Cascading Style Sheet extensions)
2. Server Side Scripting / Coding - Server Side Scripting is the type of code that is executed or interpreted by the web server.
Server Side Scripting is not viewable or accessible by any visitor or general public.
Below are the common Server Side Scripting technologies:
ASP.NET (Microsoft's Web Application Framework - successor of ASP)
ASP (Microsoft Web Server (IIS) Scripting language)
ASP.NET Core (Microsoft's lean and composable framework for building web and cloud applications)
PHP (very common Server Side Scripting language - Linux / Unix based Open Source - free redistribution, usually combines with MySQL database)
ColdFusion (Adobe's Web Application Framework)
Ruby on Rails (Ruby programming's Web Application Framework - free redistribution)
Python (general purpose high-level programming language and Server Side Scripting language - free redistribution)
We have also used other platforms, frameworks and technologies such as:
WCF, WPF, CardSpace, WF, LINQ, ADO.NET, Parallel LINQ, Silverlight, AJAX, Mono, Windows Forms, among others.
Also, third-party proprietary software as:
DevExpress, Kendo UI by Telerik, Umbraco
