Web Design in 2017

Web Design is Now Component Based Software Design

Web design in the modern era involves building components from top programming languages like AngularJS.  Creating components that can be used in large-scale, and responsive applications requires engineers’ and UI designers to put together different components into a code base.  Today html5 is used to create modern web and mobile applications.  Html5 is the skeleton of these applications, and programming languages like AngularJS and ReactJS, C#, Java and other traditional object-oriented programming languages are used to give the software functionality.  AngularJS and AngularJS work together to enable advanced styling of modern html5 applications that can work in various places without constant issues and troubleshooting from it teams.

Today skilled and successful developers are quickly able to take software components and put them together, collaboratively, to make agile software that is can be improved over many years and becomes more efficient over time.  Software developers that are on top of modern UI/UX strategies can easily build responsive components on top of htm5 templates, which are styled with the newest and best styling technologies, removing the time and need for tacky and incompetent web designers that are from the the late 90’s.  With the new boom in technology, as New York works hard to parallel Silicon Valley, developers that can quickly and artfully assemble complicated software using high-tech are in great demand.

Web design is a field that is extinct, and has been taken over by engineering. Engineering technology for people who need to use it quickly without errors is the job of software developers in major fortune 500 companies.  Building and testing this technology is a process which the world’s most talented engineers work on for many hours a day, and the advanced, complex softwares the build have in 2017 taken over the web.  Major website development in NYC is now about engineering, and tacky and lousy web designers are fading from the mainstream market, as engineers from the valley crowd into the tech alley. New York’s Google building in Chelsea is a great example of this transformation that the world is undergoing, as major tech companies buy space in downtown Manhattan and Brooklyn.

NYC is now a major hub for tech and software developers.  In a the next few years, major Silicon valleys will crowd into downtown Manhattan as tech goes to places where it can never go back, changing the entire climate of America’s metropolitan city.

Old and crummy WordPress websites vie for a place like unwanted garbage inside America’s major cities, as talented software developers quickly transform the new rocket economy building lightning speed components, which look classier and sleeker than ever before.

The new era requires web designers which are talented in industrial UX/UI design, and can “put stuff together that works”.  Software development is a collaborative effort in 2017 that doesn’t look fondly upon short-cuts and cheap fixes, but beautiful, streamlined work that shows workmanship and dedication.  Real clients are willing to pay big money for these real projects.

Instagram Founder, Kevin Systrom, Marketing at it’s best!

Kevin Systrom, with no training in programming took a simple idea and within 18-months turned it into a billion dollar dream come true. Inspiration that nothing is impossible to achieve. Hard work, determination and word of mouth goes a long way!

Article from TheNextWeb.

Instagram‘s CEO, Kevin Systrom, will go down in history as one of the greatest Silicon Valley success stories of our generation. Unlike Mark Zuckerberg, the man responsible for acquiring the popular photo sharing app for $1 billion, Systrom received no formal engineering training.

Systrom, an active user on Quora, is a largely self-taught programmer. While working in the marketing department at Nextstop, which Facebook acquired in 2010, he would spend his evenings learning to program. According to Systrom, small projects included combining elements of Foursquare with Mafia Wars.

Systrom explains on Quora:

The story starts when I worked at Nextstop. While I was there working in marketing, I started doing more and more engineering at night on simple ideas that helped me learn how to program (I don’t have any formal CS degree or training). One of these ideas was combining elements of foursquare (check-ins) with elements of Mafia Wars (hence the name Burbn). I figured I could build a prototype of the idea in HTML5 and get it to some friends. Those friends ended up using the prototype without any branding elements or design at all. I spent weekends working on improving the prototype for my friends.

At a party for the Hunch folks I ran into a bunch of people who would basically make starting Burbn a reality. At that party were two people from Baseline Ventures and Andreessen Horowitz. I showed the prototype, and we decided we’d meet up for coffee to talk about it. After the first meeting, I decided to take the dive and leave my job to go solo and see if Burbn could be a company. Within two weeks of leaving, I raised $500k from both Baseline and Andreessen Horowitz, and started work on finding a team.

Thanks to Codecademy and the like, there are growing numbers of self-taught programmers in Silicon Valley. Instagram’s success will augment the enthusiasm for learning to code. And Systrom may prove to be an inspiration for this new generation of budding entrepreneurs – one they can actually relate to.
