In the present technology world, you never stop learning, especially when you are a developer. Staying ahead in the web development game means you should constantly adapt to the latest technologies, frameworks, libraries and APIs, and address the growing needs of the customers. Front-end is an essential part of any web application. The success of the website majorly depends on visual elements and its usability.
The front-end development technologies are evolving continuously. It is no longer just about the coding, but the developers need to have other essential website development skills and visualize the picture beyond coding. It plays an important role in improving usability, UX/UI and more. No matter what front-end technologies the developers use, there are some common core principles that they need to adopt in 2020.
1 Turn to Artificial Intelligence
AI has been moving forward at a rapid pace, and we have already seen its applications in various industries like smart home, robots, autopilot and voice search. In the web development industry, AI is used to create smart chatbots to provide an improved user experience. Moreover, the developers will be able to transfer common actions to robot without compromising on quality, and saving considerable time and money. According to a study, AI is expected to see a further growth of 20 to 30% in 2020, giving us a clear picture of its dominance in the web application development.

5 Developing Interface for Mobile Users
For the last five years, the count of mobile users has gone up to nearly 4 billions. This clearly indicates how important it is to create consistent and clear user interface across all devices, especially mobile phones. Although the number of mobile users is increasing, many enterprises haven’t yet built one as needed. Mobile version shouldn’t be like the desktop version, but reduced down to the size that fits the screen. While developing the web pages for mobile, the developers also need to keep user actions in mind, like swiping, ticking, tapping and typing from the mobile device. If the users are able to browse the application flawlessly and reach the final call-to-action, then the website is said to be designed truly for mobile.
