When to choose JavaScript app development

JavaScript (not to be confused with Java, but you probably know that, don’t you? :)) is one of the most popular programming languages on the planet, used to create user-friendly, interactive websites and web apps. So whenever you want one, you’ll probably have at least some work to do using it.

(If you know why you’re choosing JavaScript, you can skip this part. Our SEO person made us write it. And if you decide to work with us, we’ll help you verify if it is indeed the best choice for your app, anyway.)

We probably wouldn’t be wrong if we said that the majority of websites today use JavaScript. In fact, we just checked, and some 97% of all websites use JavaScript as a client-side scripting language. And, having evolved over the past 25 years, it’s one of the most universal languages, too.

On websites, it can be used to do things like adding hover effects to buttons and text, creating image galleries, animating elements on a page, playing audio or video, hiding and showing navigation menus, etc. Essentially, it makes a static web page dynamic. And it’s what you’ll use if you want to add some oomph to your website.

It’s also, quite obviously, used to create interactive web and mobile apps using an extensive library of frameworks, such as React or React Native. Developers also use it to build in-browser games.

Since it’s a client-side programming language, it’s technically used for frontend development in general. But it can also be used on the backend, helping make an app cohesive in its performance. So, finding a full stack JavaScript development company is always a good idea. Which – you guessed it – DeSmart is, with our 20 years of experience using JavaScript and other languages to build functional, usable software products. 

But before we go on to show you a few of them, let us do our SEO person a favor and discuss why JavaScript is probably a good idea for your software development project. (Or you can scroll right down to some samples from our portfolio.)

The benefits of custom JavaScript development

  • Speed

Because it’s faster to execute code right in the browser, on the client-side, JavaScript makes websites and apps perform better and reduces waiting times (and frustration levels) on the part of the user.

  • Versatility

JavaScript can be used in too many ways to count and works well in a variety of environments, with a variety of frameworks, to build a variety of apps and features. And it works in every modern web browser.

  • Efficiency

Apps built using JavaScript are light, fast, and more efficient. This is because (among other things), the code can be processed on the user’s system, helping free up server space (which also reduces costs.)

  • Functionality

You can use JavaScript to build a wide range of interactive features and components, creating functional user interfaces and feature-rich software products and websites.

  • Great user-experience

JavaScript is used to build usable, responsive websites and apps people can enjoy on any device. Most social media networks rely on JavaScript for their user interfaces. 

  • Cost-efficiency

Using JavaScript frameworks can reduce project delivery times and the amount of server space needed. It’s also open-source, so it keeps growing while you have unlimited access to the improvements and new developments.

What our clients say about our software development services

We received a great deal of effort for our money, and I’m happy with our collaboration. The quality of work was professional, and their team identified any bugs by themselves most of the time. Based on the ideas we provided, they came back with an improved solution. They also gave us extra product functionalities.
The initial meeting we had with DeSmart before we started the project was really effective. I recommend doing so if you have the opportunity. Also, their communication, speed of development, and expertise were impressive. DeSmart was excellent at providing their own ideas, which benefited the project greatly.
DeSmart is synonymous with service quality. The company works in a truly agile mode, regularly
delivering work increments, which allows to quickly and easily synchronise on requirement details. I was
especially impressed with the dev team’s capability to quickly learn and start using our new APIs.
In terms of deadlines, they performed well. The original timeline was for 15 weeks, and the project was completed in 17 weeks, given that we increased the scope along the way, I would say that's very impressive.
The recommendations contributed to the process by DeSmart, coupled with their questioning of our decisions, have made them stand out. The quality of their work is extremely good.
DeSmart effectively delivered a platform that served as the starting point of our business. My partner and I have been very pleased with the quality of their work!

Will I work with a dedicated contact person on your team?

This really depends on your requirements. We have project managers, testers, and developers on board, and everyone’s equally involved in the project. This means you can talk directly to the developer working on your software and avoid the usual miscommunication that can happen when information travels through the hands and keyboards of multiple people.

Do you use project management software like, e.g. Jira?

Yes, we communicate using Slack and Jira and try not to use email too much. We’re also open to adjusting to the tools your company uses.

Are you a stable company?

Oh, we are. In the past 19 years, we’ve completed over 200 projects and have a full-time in-house team of about 30 people. We’re also the founding members of sodapl.com – the Polish Software Development Association.

Why would I want to work with you?

We’re a boutique software house hiring a maximum of 30 people. Among other things, this means that your project is always a priority for us – we just can’t take on too many projects at a time. We’re also super honest and transparent and will always give you a clear picture of what’s going on.

Our team includes experts with many years of experience, and we’re often asked by other software houses to support them with their projects.

We also have a unique company culture. We’re teal-oriented and value a human approach to software development (which is why “Human-first software development” is our tagline) and work in general. And you can see it both in how we run the company and the way we work with our clients.
