Web Development

Today I learned that website development encompasses all related development tasks, including client-side scripting, server-side scripting, server and network security configuration, eCommerce development, and content management system (CMS) development, even though web development typically refers to web markup and coding.

Because they contain vocabulary and grammatical rules for interacting with computers, they are referred to as "languages."

Native Apps vs Hybrid Apps vs Web Apps and Xamarin

Today I learned that a native app is one that was created specifically for a platform, like iPhone or Android, using that platform's code libraries and hardware features (camera, GPS, etc). On the other side, a web-based app is one that is hosted online and used with a mobile device's browser. In general, hybrid apps are just native app shells that have been wrapped around web apps. The shell can connect to any features the mobile platform offers once they have been downloaded from an app store and installed locally via a browser that is included within the app. In addition, I learned that with the help of the open-source Xamarin platform, developers can create cutting-edge, effective apps for iOS, Android, and Windows.

SQL vs NOSQL and MongoDB

Today I learned The programming language used to communicate with relational databases is called SQL. (Relational database management systems represent data as rows and tables of records connected by logical linkages.) NoSQL DBMs are a subset of non-relational DBMs that often do not employ SQL. For transactional data whose structure doesn't change frequently (or at all), and where data integrity is crucial, SQL databases offer considerable advantages. It works best for quick analytical queries as well. NoSQL databases offer far higher scalability and flexibility, which facilitates quick development iterations. I've never heard of SQL or MongoDB so this was useful. An open source NoSQL database management system is called MongoDB. NoSQL databases are used in place of conventional relational databases. Working with sizable distributed data sets makes good use of NoSQL databases. MongoDB is a technology that can manage, store, and retrieve information that is document-oriented.
