Android App Development

Android app Dev

 

Android applications have been the most used ones for a long time. They are used for everyday chores like shopping, paying the bills, banking etc. Android apps provide a wide variety of applications that fit every need of the customer. Because of this, the number of users also increase day by day thereby making it popular. According to authentic resources, Android now has a market share of 81 percent. People from all sectors including businesspersons prefer Android applications for their business interests.

Businesses have the sole intention of making the maximum profit. This can be done by increasing customers. Android applications are a great way of doing that. In addition, this is the best investment that they will be making for in the long run. A person who sets up a business aims to generate maximum revenue and profits with an effective marketing strategy. It is formulated to attract the maximum audience towards the services. Some of the benefits of Android platforms as understood by developers are mentioned below.

Since Android is the commonly used platform, businesses can reach a wide range and number of audiences through this single medium alone. More audience means more potential customers who bring in more sales and revenue. Android is also a friend of Android app developers. It has many in-built features that help to build unique applications. It is even better now with the update Android Q. They are also preferred by small-scale industries or startups. They are a low budget platform and it makes market access easier to these businesses. They are cost effective when we compare it to iOS app development, which is more on the expensive side. The entire app development cycle is so short that your product will reach the market in no time. Returns will also be available readily. They have features that are unique and efficient. Some of them are as follows.

Boost Productivity

A large majority of people have stated that mobile applications have helped them do their chores efficiently and in less time. Google Play is a platform that brings to the people many numbers of productive applications.

Cross Platform

Android applications also have the perk of functioning in different platforms. These are useful for people using more than one or multiple kinds of platforms. If not a cross-platform app, then your business will lose out on potential users who do not use Android phones.

Customisable

The primary difference between Android and iOS is the customisation features. Android has many customisation options that is not seen in iOS. It is very easy to design and customise Android apps. Android platforms have minimal restrictions when it comes to customisation. This is one of the main reasons why most of the people around the world is choosing Android over other competitors.

Even though Android app development has many benefits, these benefits cannot be affected if you do not go to the right developer for Android app development. aTeamIndia has undoubtedly the best android app development team. They have a special team designated for Android under their mobile engineering development comprising of only the top Android developers.

GitHub

Git default

 

Git and GitHub have paved the way for better web development and they have revolutionised the way developers work. The underlying concept is that of networking and sharing. GitHub facilitates a centralised location that is cloud-based. This facilitates storing, sharing, publishing, testing and collaboration of projects. Git has changed and advanced the version control system. This system is useful when there are a large number of developers working on the project. It primarily provides developers with a platform to share prototypes and collaborate with one another. In addition, the developers can build upon each other’s code. GitHub is not just beneficial for developers but equally so for the stakeholders. They get the opportunity to have a test run and determine the progress for themselves. Git is an online web-based platform where developers can connect and work on projects in unison.

How is Git beneficial to a developer?

  • Git can be seen as an online cataloguing system in the sense that developers, designers, programmers etc. can store their projects in this system and be updated of the changes happening in it. Since it is cloud based, it facilitates real-time collaboration between teams of developers.
  • Since it is open source, it is free as well. It is readily available. It can also be downloaded but without being charged. It provides the option of downloading the code and working on it.
  • Usually, there is a lot of confusion when there is more than one person working on the same file. This is avoided by Git. Collaboration is very simple, that is, when a programmer puts up a code, other developers will have access to it and can make changes to it. Even in such a scenario, they will be isolated from each other and the individual versions will be kept intact.  
  • Controlling versions of code are also easier with Git. Whenever an edit is made to a code, Git will take a snapshot of this new change. This will create a copy of the previous version of a code and helps in tracking all the changes. You can always go back to the old or previous version.

aTeamIndia is able to maintain the best GitHub team because it is designed in such a way that the developers have a great deal of control over the work that is being done. aTeamIndia has a directory that has recorded all the changes and current states of different files that can be accessed by other developers that have access. This helps aTeamIndia to acquire the insights and expertise of other developers thereby increasing the overall efficiency. Branching feature of Git also enables aTeamIndia to carry out their coding in an organised way. Parts of the code can be worked on in isolation. This prevents breaking of the master code. The code that is being worked on can be made into its own or can be merged back into the original branch. There is an enriched database where the developers can have access to all the commits or changes ever made to the master code. These functions have enabled aTeamIndia to be one of the top GitHub developers.

Git

git hub

 

GIT is a version control system that is distributed. It is also a program that has a source code management system in it. When two or more developers are working on the same project, it does the functioning of protecting data integrity by distributing non-linear workflows.

There are many reasons why developers should use GitHub. If you have version control for your code, then you have the best coding practice. Irrespective of the language that you are working on like Python, Java etc. a good version control workflow is very important. Implementing a good workflow is not an easy task but it is necessary for the developers. Providing great tools to work with, GitHub helps the developers to establish a workflow. Git has helped aTeamIndia become a global player by helping it collaborate with other developers.

aTeamIndia’s top Git developers can now work in an open community and share and learn from other users. Some of the features that make aTeamIndia’s team the best Git team are as follows:

Branching

One unique feature of Git is the branching ability. This is a feature that makes a developer’s life easy. There are centralised version control system and branched version control system as well. The branched version control system is easier and cheaper and can also be easily merged. This is how Git gets its branched workflow version. This feature also provides an isolated background for a new change that happens to your codebase. When a developer decides to work on something irrespective of whether it is big or small, he can create a branch. This does not bring any change to the master branch and maintains its quality.

Version Control

Whenever a developer gets a working copy in SVN, it goes back to a single and common repository that is central for all. However, unlike others, Git has a version control system that is distributed. Each developer will get his or her own local repository instead of the common copy. In addition, they come with the full history of commits. If there is no history, then the developer will have to spend the time to inspect past versions of the file and will require a network to create commits. Because of the full history, this can be avoided and makes it function faster.

Request Pull

Another great feature is the pull request. Through this feature, another developer can request to merge one of your branches into their repository. This opens up a great opportunity for discussion. Another advantage of this feature is that the project leads can easily keep track of changes. Developers can also have discussions about their work before incorporating code into the rest of the codebase. Pull requests are a comment thread that is attached to a branch. This makes them extremely versatile. It helps in creating more like a community where developers can seek help from each other. If somebody is stuck at something, they can pull a request and ask another developer to help them.

Thus, there are many benefits to being a part of the Git community. It is also very welcoming for newcomers. They will not have to be trained because they will already be familiar with the distributed development of the system.

Express JS

Express Js

 

aTeamIndia has the top Express JS developers in the country. Express JS is based on the framework JavaScript. Therefore, it is necessary that every good Express JS developer will automatically be an expert in vanilla or the pure JavaScript as it is called. In addition, since Express JS is a Node JS framework, aTeamIndia’s best Express JS team members are also masters in Node JS. aTeamIndia developers will be able to create apps that are highly efficient and this is a great advantage all the developers have while creating applications with Express JS. Some of the features that make Express JS developer friendly are as follows.

Rapid Server-Side Programming

There are many added benefits of being Express JS being a Node JS framework. It packages all the features of Node JS. These features can be used in any part of the program. Therefore, tedious tasks that require many hours and repetitive work can be easily done by the developer in a few hours and a few codes. One does not have to involve in redundant coding. Since Express JS is based on Node JS, they share many features in common. These features can also be used on all parts of the program. With the extra perks from its base framework, it is way faster than pure Node JS development.

Routing

This is a unique function that helps web applications to keep their web pages through their URLs. Routing helps to store web pages. This is done through URLs. These URLs can also be shared with other users. The users can then go back to the originally shared web page by going back to these URLs. It can also be shared. Even though Node JS has this routing mechanism, it is not well developed. Express JS has an advanced routing system. This lets them handle even dynamic URLs.

Debugging

Express JS has a very advanced and easy debugging system, which helps the developers to identify the threats or errors right away and fix it.

Templating

This function helps in developing dynamic content. They have a template engine that allows the web pages to have dynamic content by creating HTML templates on the server side. This is then sent to the client side for rendition. It also manages the big load from the client side. This helps to increase the efficiency of the application.  

Middleware

A middleware is a cluster of codes that can reach out to a user’s request, response of the application, and helps to decide the next middleware that should be used. This kind of advanced architecture helps the developers to bring updates to the application easily like adding, removing or modifying features and make the application scalable.

Some of the other features of Express JS is that in spite of being single threaded, it is very scalable. It has a non-blocking way of functioning when we compare it to the traditional server. In addition, it is very quick. There is absolutely no buffering because of putting the output in chunks.

Bot Development

chat-bot-middle

 

Chatbots have existed as long as the 1960s. However, they were not that popular. Chatbots rose to popularity with Facebook integrating chat bot messenger along with the app. Chatbots are helpful across all businesses and industries and hence developers must invest in bot development. They are basically a new age sales representative. aTeamIndia has invested a lot in bot development. They are one of the top bot developers in the market. Some of the most common benefits of chatbots are:

Bot Advantages

Chatbots give you a totally different experience than humans. They have been programmed to follow certain directions. They will not treat the customers based on their mood. The developers can now make sure that customer satisfaction is high. All they have to do is integrate the program and sit back. They are also made in such a way that they can reply to the customer at any time. It is not possible for employees to be available 24/7. However, bots are constantly available. This kind of availability makes sure that your products and services are easily available to all customers. This is a great strategy to increase your sales. Bots are also known to be proactive. They can initiate conversations with all customers, which is not always possible by human sales reps.

User Engagement

User engagement is a very important element of any kind of online businesses. User engagement means maintaining an element of contact with the users or your usual customers. You can retain your customers by giving them regular updates and information regarding your new products, offers, updates, promotions etc. They also help the customers make the right choice while buying something.

Data Collection

Chatbots also have a particular kind of mechanism that lets you gain more knowledge about your customers and users who visit your website. The developer can then be aware of the preferences and make the product more customised or customer friendly. A good website should always respond to the likeness of customers. Delivery of service and new products can be improvised with the help of this data or intelligence.

History and Suggestions

Chatbots are capable of providing the customers with a very friendly and conversational experience just like a human sales representative. Their purchase history will be recorded and kept in mind. Later on, when they visit the website, they will be given suggestions based on their history. They can also acquire more information about the product they wish to buy and monitor their entire purchase with the bots. Even if you have any query, the bots will clear them.

Chat Integration

Integration of chatbots is a great way to increase the customer base of your website. A great example is social media platforms. Almost all of them have incorporated bot development into their system. They have huge user support. Through chatbots, you can get to people across all platforms and across the world. This is also a great marketing technique. This is also a way of expanding your market. With such a wide scale marketing, you get wider acceptance. With this, your brand name gets wider recognition.

AWS EC2

Amazon Web Services offers reliable, scalable, and inexpensive cloud computing services

 

Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) can be considered as a feature within the Amazon Web Services or AWS. A great feature of EC2 is that you do not have to invest in hardware. AWS EC2 helps you to develop and deploy your applications at a much faster rate. EC2 lets you launch as many servers as you want. These virtual servers can be many in number or very few. You can then do the configuration, manage security, storage etc. With EC2, managing traffic is also very easy. You no longer have to forecast the frequency of the traffic. It can automatically make the required changes to manage the sudden spike or reduction in traffic. There are many features of AWS EC2 that help it to put forward applications that are scalable and resilient.

Direct Access

Access to the underlying server is one very great advantage provided by EC2. The EC2 bare metal instances gives your application a direct access to the processor and memory of the server. These are particularly useful when you have workload that require access to memory.

Pause and Play

Bare metal instances are one of the instances offered by EC2 and functions just like their other instances. Another great feature is that these instances can be stopped and then resumed later. Applications that persist and take time to get into the memory can be benefited with this feature. In addition, you will not be charged for the instance that has been paused or hibernated.

Types of Storage

Dense storage features are also very beneficial to customers. If they require high-intensity storage applications, then this instance will come in handy. Storage is another great benefit or service offered by AWS EC2. Different workloads will have different requirements for storage. AWS EC2 can accommodate these different needs. In addition to a storage capacity that is built in, they have also considered other provisions for storage. These are Amazon Elastic Block Store, Elastic File System etc.

Control and Optimisation

There is also another feature that lets you control the instances. These are called the optimise CPUs which give you the control over the instances over both the fronts. This helps you to save on a lot of CPU based licensing costs. Some customers look for greater graphic experiences. GPU graphic instances are perfect for this.

Pay Per Use

Pay per use is one of the greatest ever modifications that they brought about. Even though some instances might start booting, they might not really start immediately. You will be charged according to the actual time it starts. You will only be paying for the resources that you use. Many idle resources will not be included.

Elastic Cloud

An elastic IP address is also a great feature. These are static. They are designed for better cloud computing experience. You also have greater control over this IP address, which is connected to your account and you can control it until you release it.

aTeamIndia, with its top AWS EC2 developers, are able to provide better services to their clients because of the ever-growing development expertise of Amazon Web Services. Their best AWS EC2 team will be able to meet all your application needs and change the way in which people perceive development itself.

Vue.js

vuejs

 

Vue.js has gained so much popularity right from its inception and is taking over the front-end world. So let us have a look at what makes this framework so special.

So what is Vue.js? Created by Evan You in 2013, Vue is a progressive and performant JavaScript framework used for building user interfaces (UIs) and front-end applications. What does it do? The framework is used to build a reactive user interface that adds interactivity to web applications and helps to create a rich client-side application using JavaScript. It also offers declarative rendering, data binding, directives, and so on. What makes them special? What Vue.js creators have done is that they took all of the great ideas from all of the other sort of modern JavaScript frameworks and combined them to build a better framework, which has all the advantages of the others with minimum flaws.

Vue is one of the most popular JavaScript frameworks available and it is right up there with React and Angular. It is a complete framework for building reactive, component-driven apps and uses native Web APIs, HTML templates and CSS. The framework was designed from the ground up to be easy to use and incrementally adoptable. This makes it easy to be integrated into any project or library and for rapid prototyping. It is also powerful enough to create advanced single page applications that dynamically update the page as the user reacts to the app. Vue.js is used by developers to create a more maintainable and testable code base.

Makes Creating UIs and Front-end Apps Much Easier

You can build just about anything with Vue and it also keeps your application in order and much more organised. The directives (an idea borrowed from Angular) offers simple syntax to use more complicated functionalities and makes coding easier.

Flexible

Vue.js allows you to code an app quickly and enables rapid prototyping, which can run straight from the browser as well. The coding can be done with HTML file or JavaScript file using virtual nodes.

Easy to Learn

It has less of a learning curve than the other frameworks. If you already know HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, then you will have no problem coding in Vue.js. Reading the Vue guide can get you coding with Vue in no time.

Extremely Fast and Lightweight

Vue being a single page application framework means that one page is loaded in the browser and then everything is done through a virtual DOM. Only certain parts of the page will be updated when they need to be.

aTeamIndia is a web development company with years of hands-on experience working with all the technologies and frameworks needed for creating the ace solutions. Thanks to the top Vue.js team, we have created top-notch solutions that reflect what have become the hallmarks of our wide body of work deeply rooted in creative thinking combined with a deep understanding of technologies. The Vue.js developers in our team have this zest to explore and exploit the full potential of this amazing technology and forge solutions that transcend the normal and build the new.

Symfony

Symfony

 

For a developer, choosing the right framework for your project is very important. aTeamIndia has chosen Symfony to make the developer’s life easier. Using this framework, their top Symfony developers bring to you better applications. There are many features that make Symfony stand out from other frameworks. Since its inception in 2005, Symfony has come a long way. They have the reputation of being the most reliable PHP framework. For most web developers, Symfony is a much sought after option.

Flexibility

One of the highlights of Symfony is that it is very flexible. It has two important components like bundles and components. They are just like a plugin. They help you to reduce the overall cost involved in a production. This is possible because they are decoupled. They can be recycled. Reconfiguration and the ability to be used again make them cost effective.

Components

Components, on the other hand, reduce the tediousness of the work involved. They help the developers to focus on business logic and not routine tasks. They are also work specific. There are 30 numbers of components, which help in the development cycle. They can be used independently and can also be customised with your modules. However, such customisations do not bring any change to the architecture of the entire framework. Bundles and components together make sure that the parts of the application are not too co-dependent. Reducing these dependencies will make sure that when you change something, it does not break the other portions of the application. With the freedom to make any kind of change, you can easily adapt the application to fit your user’s needs.

Commercial Support

Not all frameworks are commercially supported. However, Symfony is one of the few that is supported. The creators are majorly responsible for the ever-growing reputation of the framework. They actively contribute for its better operation. They offer the developers tutorials and other help. They also update the public with their conferences that happen worldwide. Thus, the creators know what the developing community actually requires. This is also one reason why this is a very developer friendly framework.

Reliability

Symfony is also one of the few frameworks that are reliable. Their components are used by other platforms because of their reliability. National Geographic, TED, Vogue and BlaBlaCar are some of the companies that have benefited from using Symfony. Testing is an integral part of any framework or code. It is also strenuous. Maintainability and testing are easier in Symfony because of the few reasons like the reduction of dependencies, reusing bundles, customisation, design patterns etc.

There is an independent library that makes testing as easy as one can imagine. It is also a very influential framework. This is evident when we look at their vast community. Their community has many notable contributors. Everybody all across the world works together to make this an amazing code. Other than their widening community base, their documentation, that is flawless, is also the reason why they are popular. It is very well written and structured.

Serverless Stack

Serverless Stack

 

aTeamIndia breaths serverless. They are also one of the best Serverless Stack teams to work on Serverless Stack. This means that a vendor will be hosting the services. AWS Lambda is a great example. A Stack is an accumulation of AWS resource that can handle a single unit. Thus, you can create, update or delete a collection of resources by making changes to the stacks and you do not have to do it individually. The term Serverless Stack is used to define how an application can be built with the help of serverless.

Serverless Stack has many advantages and this is why it is preferred among developers even though it is relatively new in the field. Pay per scale approach, auto-scaling etc. are some of the great advantages of Serverless Stack.

Pay Per Use

Pay per execution pricing model was a path-breaking feature of serverless. Running code on traditional servers like Digital Ocean, AWS etc. come with an hourly or a monthly pricing rate. It will cost you even if the server is sitting idle without any work. However, unlike the traditional model, the serverless model only charges you for the exact amount of time the code runs on the resources. Thus, it only takes into account the resource that is actually utilised. While traditional servers are burdensome, serverless makes the job extremely smooth.

Auto Scaling

Balancing the load is no longer a hassle. Serverless does the function of automatically scaling according to the change in traffic. If there is a sudden increase in inbound traffic, serverless will also increase the resources to be used accordingly. This helps it to handle the increased load or traffic.

Leveraging Third Party Services

Serverless does not just deal with functions or functions as services. Serverless extends to third party service providers. A great example of this is, for your advertising and business promotion, you will have to send texts and calls to your users so that they are updated. Now, it is not wise to hire a telecom infrastructure to send these in for you. It will also be a huge financial burden. You can use this capital elsewhere where it is more needed. Instead, you can utilise a pay per use SAAS to handle this function for you. Thus, you can cut down the cost of advertising and communication with your users and customers. Likewise, managing your own authentication service is also a huge task. It is hard to deal with password reset, reminders etc. So leveraging services of providers like Cognito helps you to focus your time more on the developing part of the application.

Reducing the Work Load

Top Serverless Stack developers help you to focus more on your business logic. It handles most of the work so that you can solely focus on the development. Third-party providers will now share your concern and workload. They will manage scaling, managing traffic, patching servers etc.

Serverless is definitely a modern age technology. It helps you the most when there is a tight budget or a time cringe.

Node.js

node js

 

So what is Node.js? The simple answer is that the makers of Node.js took JavaScript, which is normally confined to a browser, and they allowed it to run on a computer. What Node.js does is that it creates an environment for the JavaScript to run on the machine directly. And how do they do it? The creators of Node.js took the Google Chrome’s V8 JavaScript engine and built a JavaScript runtime that opened up a whole new world where you can access the files on your computer, which you normally cannot do with JavaScript. You can now listen to network traffic on your computer, listen to HTTP requests the machine gets and send back a file, access databases directly – all sorts of great stuff. Basically, anything you could do with PHP or Ruby on Rails, you can now do with JavaScript in Node.js.

Node.js is a cross-platform and open-source runtime environment that helps to execute JavaScript code on a browser externally. It is often used to build back-end services called Application Programming Interface or simply API. These are the services that power our client applications like a web app running inside a web browser or mobile app running on a mobile device. These client apps are simply what the user sees and interacts with. They are just the face. It allows you to build scalable network applications using JavaScript on the server-side.

Why Node.js? Here Are Some Reasons Why You Should Use Node.js

Great for Prototyping and Agile Development

Node.js is easy to get started and can be used for prototyping and agile development. It can be used for creating super-fast and highly scalable services. It is used in production by big companies such as PayPal, Netflix, IBM, Yahoo and so on.

JavaScript Everywhere

Developers with JavaScript knowledge can learn Node.js easily and write the backend code. This way, developers can create the front-end and the back-end with a single coding language.

Cleaner and Consistent Code Base

Using JavaScript on the front-end and the back-end can help in creating a cleaner and more consistent coding base.

The Largest Ecosystem of Open-source Libraries

Node.js possesses the largest ecosystem of open source libraries available. Node Package Manager or NPM is a built-in package manager and a code repository that developers can use to integrate with their project. This way, we do not have to build the blocks from scratch and instead focus on the core of the application

So what could you build with Node.js?  Node.js is ideal for developing a highly responsive website, a mobile application or a Chatbot.

If you are someone who wants to create a website that supports a large flow of web traffic, then Node.js will be an excellent choice for you. What you will need to do would be to find the top Node.js developers, who are knowledgeable about Node.js and are highly experienced. That is where aTeamIndia can help.
