Starting a Web App in 2022 [Research Results]June 15, 2022
We are finally happy to share with you the results of the world’s first study on how developers start a web application in 2022. For this research, we wanted to do a deep dive into how engineers around the globe are starting web apps, how popular the use of low-code platforms and what tools are decisive in creating web applications.
To achieve this, we conducted a survey with 191 software engineers of all experience around the globe. We asked questions around the technology they use to start web applications.
Highlights of the key findings:
- The usage of particular technologies in the creation of web apps is closely related to engineers’ experience. New technologies, such as no-code/low-code solutions, GraphQL, and non-relational databases, appeal to developers with less expertise;
- Engineers with less experience are more likely to learn from online sources, whereas developers with more expertise in software development prefer to learn from more conventional sources such as books;
- Retool and Bubble are the most popular no-code/low-code platforms;
- React, Node.js, PostgreSQL, Amazon AWS, and Bootstrap are the most popular web application development stacks.
