Tools of Web Application Development…

To begin with, you need a stack of applications. What is that? It is the main software that will drive your application. Most people use the LAMP battery. This means Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.


Linux is the operating system and Apache is the web server. You do not have to know much about these to build a basic web application. I just know you'll need them.


MySQL is the Database Management System (DMS). This is where you store your user's data. Do not worry if you do not know what this is. Just keep in mind that you will need to learn the basics of MySQL - at least, how to create a database and the user.


PHP is the server-side programming language. It is used to create the business logic of the application. You do not have to be an expert in programming, but you need to know the basics. You do not have to program everything from zero though. Instead, make use of a PHP application framework such as CodeIgniter. This allows you to concentrate on creating the code specific to your application, rather than the low-level code that is included in each web application.


LAMP is your basic application stack, but you also need to know some other technologies. One is HTML5 / CSS3,CSS5. These allow you to create your user interface. Again, you do not have to be an expert to start building your web application. You just need to know the basics.


But you do not want to create your user interface from scratch. There is no reason to do so. You can also use a front-end framework, such as Bootstrap. It is a library of user interface elements, such as forms, tables, alerts and more. You can use this framework to make your application look professional.


You can create a web application using only these technologies, but if you want to create a better and more modern application, you must also learn JavaScript (a client-side programming language) as well as some JavaScript libraries, such as jQuery.


This will make your application look more like a desktop application, than people expect these days. Again, it is not necessary, but you can learn the basics of these technologies to really take your application to the next level.
