Modern web application development has largely transformed from business teams managing monolithic apps and decoupled application services, most of which leverage cloud software. This compartmentalization of services provides a much more flexible architecture, and allows business teams to embark on the development of new products and services more quickly, while leveraging existing cloud enabled services.
The separation of the front-end and back-end is one of the most important concepts in modern web application development. This allows a business’s applications the flexibility of building multiple client applications, or supporting different platforms, while maintaining centralized back-end and API for data storage and access requirements.
It’s important to not mistake “website builders” with “web application development platforms.” While website builders are great for building business landing pages and marketing assets, they are not suitable for a team that needs to develop business or consumer applications. This is why a web service like Squarespace allows you to build a beautiful landing page, but with that tool you could never dream to start the development of an app, like Spotify.
