Why JavaScript

JavaScript. You’ve heard of it. We know it inside out. In fact, some of our most successful projects have been built with it.
Most web-based products will use Javascript to some extent, but with the advent of Node.js, Next.js and React, entire applications  can be built in this  hugely popular language. Our clients choose JavaScript for their web app development in sectors like Fintech, healthcare and real estate thanks to its versatility and widespread adoption. It allows for the creation of dynamic and interactive web content (think animations, hover effects and pop ups), providing a seamless user experience. With JavaScript, our developers can implement various functionalities, from form validation and interactive maps to multimedia integration and dynamic content updates, enhancing the overall interactivity and responsiveness of your website or web application. Its extensive libraries and frameworks, along with its compatibility with all major web browsers, make it a preferred choice for creating modern and feature-rich web experiences.
And thanks to the invention of Node.js, which uses JavaScript server side, it can be used to build back-end applications too.

Frequently asked JavaScript questions

We’re convinced that JavaScript is one of the best frameworks for developing your application. But we want you to feel the same – so allow us to enlighten you by answering some of the most commonly asked questions about JavaScript.

JavaScript is an open-source environment that allows you to run JavaScript code server-side. It’s built on the V8 JavaScript engine, originally developed for Google Chrome. JavaScript can be used for developing a wide range of applications like web servers, microservices, command-line tools, desktop applications and IoT devices. Before JavaScript was created, JavaScript was mainly used for building client-side apps in web browsers. JavaScript extended the use of JavaScript to server-side, which means that we can now use the same programming language for both client-side and server-side tasks. This enables frontend and backend developers to share code, making their jobs easier than ever!

One of JavaScript’s core strengths is that it can be used for both frontend and backend development, making it one of the most versatile RTEs around. In backend development, JavaScript is mainly used for creating server-side applications. It’s particularly well-suited for tasks with many concurrent connections. Think backend solutions like web applications, chat applications, online gaming servers and more. For the frontend, JavaScript is especially useful during the development and build process. Some build processes, like compiling CSS pre-processors, bundling JavaScript files and optimising assets, can be run using JavaScript. Commonly used frontend tools like Gulp, Babel and Webpack use the JavaScript platform.

JavaScript applications are renowned for their high scalability. The event-driven, non-blocking I/O model enables JavaScript to handle a large number of concurrent connections simultaneously, without hindering other tasks. To increase a JavaScript application’s capacity even further, they are horizontally scalable by running multiple instances on different server nodes and use load balancers to distribute incoming requests among them. Implementing the right caching mechanisms, both in-memory and via content delivery networks, contribute to load reduction. As with every technology, however, a JavaScript application requires careful design, architecture and performance optimisation to achieve the best scalability.

The cost of developing a JavaScript application depends on different factors, such as complexity of the scope, the features you request and development time. Providing a specific estimate without knowing the details of your project is difficult, but delivering a full application typically starts from […].

If you choose the right partner to work with, outsourcing your NodeJS development has considerable advantages. It provides you with unique access to skilled developers for whom JavaScript is their bread and butter. Outsourcing your project means that your own team can focus on their core activities, while the more technical aspects are being handled by experienced specialists. Lightflows’ experts bring best practices, insights and innovative solutions to your project, resulting in an efficient and productive way of working. And because our processes are already established, you can be sure that the project meets the highest standards when it goes live.

Yes, Lightflows provides JavaScript consulting services. We understand that developing a new application can feel like a daunting process. But by letting a partner like Lightflows light the way for your digital transformation, you make sure your JavaScript application is worth the investment. We have extensive experience in JavaScript outsourcing, including development, testing and scaling. Before starting development, our experts assess your market needs, competition and challenges. Combined with sound architectural decisions, best practice and code optimisation, we create something extraordinary: a robust and responsive JavaScript application that will drive your organisation’s growth for years to come.

When we build JavaScript applications, we follow the established method that we’ve developed over numerous JavaScript projects over the years. Lightflows employs the same tried-and-tested approach for all of our clients, with an emphasis on efficient and incremental development. We know that developing an application can be a long and difficult process. That’s why we are there to guide you through the process, all the way from your first enquiry to the launch of your application and beyond – always making sure that every step of the process is tailored to your organisation’s specific needs.

Yes, we will assign a dedicated project manager to oversee the product development, keeping you informed of progress every step of the way. It’s part of Lightflows’ unique approach: we want to make sure that our clients are involved as much as possible with the creation of their application, without getting caught up in the details. The project manager is your single point of contact who informs you of progress on your development solutions regularly and proactively. For Lightflows, communication is key and we encourage a collaborative environment where every voice is heard and every bit of feedback is always taken seriously.

If you’re reading this, you already know the answer. JavaScript is relevant in 2023 and will continue being so for the foreseeable future. Leading companies such as PayPal, LinkedIn, Netflix and Uber use NodeJS for frontend development. Its robustness and scalability made JavaScript the most widely used RTE by developers around the world. And since its user base is still increasing, so is its potential for future development. A recent example that further expands on JavaScript’s unparalleled scalability is GraphQL, which enables users to access Facebook’s APIs and fetch data 50% faster than before. JavaScript has a bright future ahead of it.
