Well, long story short – yes!
While using a website, when you intend on doing some interaction, say clicking on a button, you are sending a request to the server which gets processed, and in return, you get a response. If you link on a link inside an article in Wikipedia, the page will load, and you will be taken to a new Article/Read.
Thanks to this server side processing, all the above-mentioned functionalities are possible. Furthermore, it makes the rendering of animations and similar behaviors much less time consuming and a smoother experience.
As mentioned, one of the things that threaten the careers of web developers are platforms such as WordPress and Joomla. However, we also stated that these platforms aren’t nearly as capable of overthrowing the necessity of web developers. In fact, all these new CMS have many limitations for which big companies are still hesitant to go on board with them.
So if you are a guy who knows what he is doing, rest assured, there are plenty tools on the market to get your work done easily and most important – quickly.
So all the code doesn’t get initialized at the time of loading the website. This makes sure that your website’s load time isn’t hampered, all the while loading your site with rich features.
Hence, as you can see, there is the possibility to handle multiple operations with a single thread. This helps the programmers from not having to indulge in additional (or redundant) programming for all the different applications.
Self-help is the best help. You must have often run into a website where you wished for a certain feature to be present, but unluckily it wasn’t. You start asking yourself, oh why did the developer or the owner through this simple feature off their checklist? Should I write an email explaining my concerns? Should I search for an alternative website which might be my dream website?
- Creating interactive forms which detect mistakes in user input while a user is typing.
- Create Search boxes that can respond to user queries in real time.
- Create websites that constantly update with new information. A feature that you will find necessary for websites displaying stock prices, or scores of football games.
- And much more.
