Backend Developers

Hire Backend Developers

When someone visits a visually appealing website, they often take note of its attractive design and intuitive user interface. However, the backbone of any web application is the backend development, which is essential for the website to function properly. The frontend and backend must be in harmony for the site to work effectively. Consequently, backend developers are highly sought after and play an integral role in any agency or company. Their expertise and complexity make them invaluable. Therefore, they are in near-constant demand.

Backend Development Language Types

Backend programming can be divided into two categories: object-oriented programming (OOP) and functional programming. OOP emphasises the creation of re-usable objects that are organised into classes. Popular OOP languages include .NET, Java and Python. On the other hand, functional programming focuses more on the activities of the backend developer and utilises declarative programming languages, such as SQL, R and F#, which are more flexible and allow for execution of programming statements in any order. Programming languages can also be classified as either dynamically- or statically-typed. Dynamic typing is more malleable and allows for potential sources of unexpected errors. Conversely, static typing is more rigid and minimises the risk of mistakes.

Let’s take a closer look at these languages.

Java: Java is a widely popular programming language for good reason, having been used by developers for over two decades. Its robustness is attributed to the Java Virtual Machine, which acts as an intermediary, allowing the code to be executed on any system. Although not as user-friendly as Python due to its lengthier syntax and need for more coding, once a developer has a grasp of the language, they can employ it for website development, Android app development, networking, graphical user interface programming, and image processing. Many established corporations, such as Airbnb, Uber, Groupon, eBay, Evernote, Fitbit, and HubSpot, rely on Java for their backend development.

PHP: It is no surprise that PHP has become the most widely used server-side programming language, with 78.2% of websites powered by it. PHP was first released in 1995, and was initially created to enable the development of dynamic websites. However, its limited range of uses often leads to slower performance, as it is difficult to scale when the same code is applied to multiple purposes with varying meanings. Despite this, PHP remains the ideal choice for beginner developers, as it allows for learning mistakes, and provides numerous resources and support channels. From gathering form data, to producing dynamic page content, sending and receiving cookies, and even creating desktop applications, PHP has a wide range of applications. Such is the power of PHP that even leading organisations such as Facebook, Hootsuite, Viber, Buffer, Docusign, and Lyft use it in their day-to-day operations.

Microsoft’s.NET is an online application development platform that utilises a variety of languages such as F#, C#, and Visual Basic (VB). After becoming open-source in 2016, it is now compatible with iOS, Linux, and Android. This technology is particularly popular amongst enterprises due to its dependability and stability. Additionally, being supported by Microsoft, there is an abundance of help available. .NET can be used to develop a broad range of applications, such as mobile apps, desktop applications, Big Data applications, games, and online applications. Notable companies that use this language include Stack Overflow, DocPlanner, and Starbucks.

Ruby on Rails: Ruby on Rails is a powerful web development language that is built upon the popular Ruby programming language. It offers developers a range of convenient features that make it simple to complete a variety of tasks. For instance, a developer could construct a basic blog with just one line of code. Furthermore, Ruby on Rails has a range of additional functions that enable developers to rapidly design and run applications, generate prototypes, and automate repetitive tasks. Large companies such as Airbnb, TaskRabbit, Kickstarter, RapGenius, and Scribd are just a few of the numerous firms that have adopted Ruby on Rails.

Python Python is a programming language that has seen tremendous growth in recent years, with usage spanning from desktop to online development. It is highly praised for its simple, straightforward syntax, which many have described as graceful, readable, and lovely. This makes it accessible to newcomers and easy to learn, with a plethora of tutorials and guidelines available online. Additionally, Python is a powerful language that enables developers to do cross-platform shell scripting, web development, and automation quickly and efficiently. Major companies such as Uber, Pinterest, Mozilla, Quora, and Asana have all leveraged Python in their products and services.

SQL: Structured Query Language (SQL) is one of the most popular query languages used to interact with databases. It is also a great choice for beginners, as it is a declarative language used to construct, read, and modify databases. SQL can be beneficial to a variety of individuals, such as financial analysts, data-driven marketers, and internet entrepreneurs. This language is highly utilised and almost any company with a database will use it.

JavaScript: JavaScript is an incredibly versatile language that can be used for both front-end and back-end development. Despite its simplicity, which makes it suitable for novice developers, it does require some setup to get up and running. Once configured, developers can enter code directly into the browser. Despite its widespread use and large community, JavaScript does suffer from some drawbacks including slowness, maintenance issues, and scalability challenges common to dynamically typed languages. Nonetheless, JavaScript is used for a vast array of applications from websites, mobile apps, and games to web servers, desktop programs, and presentations. Major companies such as eBay, Hotel Tonight, Asana, and Square have all implemented JavaScript in their projects.
