Web Development Trends That Will Dominate 2022 and Beyond

As a professional web developer, it’s important to keep up with the latest web development trends and other IT industry latest news. Trends in technology have evolved throughout the years and have shaped how we use the internet today. The following content will give you an overview of what web development trends are dominating right now and how they will impact your future career as a web developer.

The usage of AI, machine learning, and robotic process automation will continue to grow

The usage of AI, machine learning (ML), and robotic process automation (RPA) will continue to grow in the cloud. In 2022, there will be an increased demand for AI-driven web development workflows.

AI is used by web application development to perform tasks that are impossible or difficult for humans to do quickly and efficiently. For example, an e-commerce site may use a chatbot to answer customer questions and provide assistance when they’re shopping; a news site may use machine learning algorithms to sort through thousands of stories each day so editors don’t have to read all of them.

Machine learning has many uses throughout the tech world. It can identify spam emails and filter out unwanted content on social media sites; it can predict what users want based on their previous behaviour. It can help companies understand their customers better so they can better target ads toward those consumers’ interests. RPA systems automate repetitive business processes—like approving requests from customers—so employees don’t have to spend their time running these routines manually instead of doing more creative work that requires human expertise (like making recommendations).

Voice Search and Virtual Reality

If you’ve been paying attention to the world of digital marketing and web development, you know that voice search is here to stay. The technology has been around for a while it’s only recently that it’s garnered widespread popularity in today’s tech landscape. Browsing using a virtual assistant like Siri or Alexa has become commonplace among consumers, who are increasingly turning to their devices as an alternative method of browsing online content.

In fact, Voicebot estimates that by 2020 there will be over half a billion people using voice assistants like Amazon Echo and Google Home every month. This means more opportunities for those looking to capitalize on this trend (such as developers who can create new apps for these platforms). 


Cyber-security is a critical issue in the world of web development. With the proliferation of devices and access points, it’s getting more difficult to keep data secure on the web.

In addition, cyber-security is a growing concern that everyone should pay attention to now, especially those who are involved with online banking or credit card purchases. The more connected we become as humans, the more vulnerable our information becomes — whether it’s passwords or other personal details.

Moreover, cyber-security has been an issue for years but has really come into focus as hackers have developed new techniques and tools that can bypass traditional security measures like firewalls and antivirus programs.

As cybercrime continues to grow in scope and sophistication over time, we need better ways of protecting ourselves against potential cyber threats so they don’t ruin our lives or cost us financially.

Progressive Web Apps (PWA) and Single-Page Applications (SPA)

PWAs are apps that you can add to your home screen and use in the same way you would use an Android or iOS application. You can also save PWA data locally, so if there’s no connection, it will still work.

PWAs are more than just a website. They’re built on top of responsive design principles that make them feel native to each platform, offering the best of both worlds—a fast mobile experience with all the advantages of being online. They’re designed to look good and load quickly even over lower bandwidth connections (like 2G), which makes them ideal for developing countries where internet connectivity may not be as strong as it is here in North America or Europe.

Single-page applications (SPAs) are web applications that load a single HTML page and dynamically update it as the user interacts with the app. The term is typically used to describe sites that use client-side scripting to dynamically rewrite the current page rather than fetching new pages from a server.

Chatbots and Conversational User Interface

Chatbots and conversational user interface (CUI) have made their way into the mainstream of web development. In fact, you probably use one every day without even realizing it. The most obvious examples are automated messaging services like Siri, Alexa and Google Assistant; however, there are also bots that live on websites such as Facebook Messenger or Slack.

What is a chatbot?

A chatbot is an artificial intelligence-powered service that offers users an interactive experience with the help of text messages or voice commands through the internet or mobile applications like Skype.

What is CUI?

In contrast to traditional UIs that rely on buttons for navigation and actions such as clicking “Buy Now” on an eCommerce site – CUI utilizes natural language processing to understand user intent before performing any action automatically without any need for additional input from end users/customers other than just starting a conversation by typing in what they want to be done (such as booking a flight).

JavaScript Frameworks

JavaScript frameworks are used to create user interface components and provide a structure for the application. Unlike libraries, they have a more opinionated view of how you should build your application. The most popular JavaScript frameworks include React.js, Vue.js, Angular.js, Ember.js and Backbone.js which differ in their approach and features but all provide some kind of view management layer (VML).

While using one of these frameworks can significantly improve productivity for experienced developers by providing an organized structure and reducing boilerplate code it may not be suitable for every project or team size as it adds additional layers between the codebase and the browser that need to be maintained over time


There are many other trends in web development that could become dominant in the next few years. It’s important for you to keep up with these trends so that your website is always up-to-date and relevant to your audience.
