Why JavaScript is the Top Programming Languages for Building IoT Applications

The Internet of Things is a made up of a lot of different components to make things work seamlessly for its users. Software, hardware, and firmware solutions are the things that are making the Internet of Things work seamlessly together.

This is a two part blog addressing web & mobile applications for IoT programming languages that are making entry into IoT easier without creating new programming languages specifically for IoT solutions.

JavaScript is the top scripting language used to create apps on both web and mobile devices for IoT applications along with other applications.

Wikipedia defines JavaScript as a high-level, dynamic, untyped, and interpreted programming language. It has been standardized in the ECMAScript language specification. Alongside HTML and CSS, JavaScript is one of the three core technologies of World Wide Web content production; the majority of websites employ it, and all modern Web browsers support it without the need for plug-ins.

Why JavaScript is the Top Programming Languages for Building IoT Applications

JavaScript has different frameworks like Angular.JS, Angular2, ReactJS and these frameworks are used in coding to create hybrid mobile apps useful for multiple OS platforms like iOS, Android, and Windows. Angular.Js is a web application framework used to create single page applications by developers. JavaScript with Apache Cordova frameworks are used in creating cross-platform mobile applications. The applications developed using JavaScript will be mostly for user interface applications which are user-friendly, and easy to access. JavaScript is also the preferred language in the development of  Web Bluetooth Apps as per W3C group standards.

Node.js is a JavaScript open source environment used in developing different server tools and applications. Node.js allows the creation of networking tools and web servers using JavaScript. Node.js applications can run on Windows, Mac OS, and Linux platforms.

JavaScript supports physical device and the IoT  platforms and is becoming the language of choice, because of its ability to support an inter-operable platform for many different applications.

How Cloud Technologies are Enabling Mobile Application Development

The App development world is taking advantage of cloud technologies to develop mobile applications. With the advancement of recent technologies like Cloud Computing, which is very significant in enabling mobile app development and is playing a major role by helping developers provide a better user experience.

Cloud Technologies are being used by developers worldwide, which is adding to the increase in mobile application deployment and an increase in multiple devices deployed. Using HTML5 is giving app developers the ability to provide uninterrupted service levels, providing network reception is good. Cloud Computing technologies are also reducing custom application development cost, by reducing building testing and deployment of these apps, managing servers are one example of a burden to developers that is now reduced with Cloud Computing.

How Cloud Technologies are Enabling Mobile Application Development

Cloud Computing Technologies is an Internet-based computing technology that provides and shares information, files and data to the users in a wide range through online sources. We can access the data anywhere from the world. The Shared information will be secure, reliable and ease to access. Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure are some of the cloud service providers frequently used by developers for sharing information for Mobile App Development.

A huge benefit to using cloud technologies for mobile app development is that cloud technologies offer scalability, the server-less architecture of the cloud allows developers to scale up or down as needed. These solutions are used to integrate data analytics and other advanced technologies, all of this is apart of the Internet of Things.

Features that cloud technologies are enabling:

Moving the apps and the data to the cloud, that were once stored on the device, reaches to a wider audience because the apps can be run on multiple operating systems, with added functionality.

Why Building Mobile Apps with API’s is a Great Approach

Mobile applications are a huge part of everyday life for most of us, whether you’re a business person needing to respond to a client’s email, a student having to check homework assignment online, or a mom who is using her mobile phone to shop for groceries. Using a mobile device is the first choice to perform these and many other functions on what used to be relegated to strictly laptops and desktops. Mobile apps and smartphones are used in many ways and are the preferred choice of people who own them to conduct different tasks while on the go.

For these mobile applications to function flawlessly, there are a lot of things that need to come together to make things work so that users see a seamless and fluid transition from screen to screen. One of the most important aspects of mobile app development is API’s. Most of us don’t know what they are, but if developers didn’t implement these well, mobile apps would not be as user-friendly.

Why Building Mobile Apps with API’s is a Great Approach

What is an API and why is it so important in mobile application development, Wikipedia defines API’s below.

Application program interface (API) is a set of routines, protocols, and tools for building software applications. An API specifies how software components should interact. Additionally, APIs are used when programming graphical user interface (GUI) components. A good API makes it easier to develop a program by providing all the building blocks. A programmer then puts the blocks together.

Mobile apps built with API’s allow for multi-platform development, not only for iOS and Android but also for web apps, this development strategy is enabling companies to add more mobile apps within their budgets.

Benefits of API Services:

  • Eliminates redundant stack setup for each app.
  • Eliminates boilerplate code.
  • All within one model.

These benefits help developers to build apps faster, but also helps them link their software and applications to cloud-based storage, developers also like this API strategy for building apps because it eliminates redundant stack setup and repeated code.

Vensi Inc uses API Services in their Mobile App Development & provides user-friendly, easily accessible apps for its clients & partners. For more information contact us at www.vensi.com/contactus.
