How are developers adapting to a rapidly changing industry?

The last 18 months have been crazy, haven’t they? The world, thanks to COVID-19, has changed in all kinds of dramatic ways, so many that it’s hard to keep track. And it’s changed seemingly faster than ever before.


The pandemic brought about huge changes in the online landscape, with a dramatic surge in eCommerce and an acceleration in digital transformation. For developers and other professionals working in the online space, this has been a busy and hectic period of time as many businesses have been left scrambling to move online - and fast.


In that light, we wanted to understand how web developers are adapting to this rapidly changing world as well as what role rapid web development platforms - like Velo - play in this new environment.


What’s a rapid web development platform? Simply put, this is a category of web builder or development tool that makes it faster and easier to build web applications and websites. This category includes no-code and low-code platforms, but it also includes platforms such as Velo that combine code with a visual builder for rapid development.


In order to understand who uses these platforms, and how they are using them, we conducted a survey. We received responses from over 1200 Velo users and other developers. We analyzed the responses and summarized the key results in a report.


So what was the big takeaway? The bottom line is that users of rapid web development platforms are focussed on business needs, not tech needs. What does this mean in practice? It means these developers choose tools that best support their businesses. They don’t flock to a platform because of its tech capabilities or because it’s popular with other developers. They want a tool that can help their business succeed.


So how do rapid web development platforms help these businesses succeed? Well, it’s right there in the name – they are focused on rapid development, and that means speed. Since they are designed for quick development and rapid iteration, rapid web development allows businesses to be more efficient and cost effective. These factors are critical for the users of these platforms, who tend to be freelance developers or entrepreneurs.


You can read the whole report for all the details.
