Today we appreciate websites that are brimming with content and services that let us deal with anything conceivable on the web (well, practically). In any case, the ride to our “Web 2.0” universe of today has taken a long time. It has been around a long time since the primary web page with dynamic content was made.
This is a glance at the history of the dynamic web, particularly the server-side programming languages and structures that make it all conceivable.
From Static to Dynamic Websites
At the point when the Web initially began, there were just static HTML pages. The internet had been around for quite a while as of now, yet it was simply after the presentation of HTML (and with it, web programs) that what we call the World-Wide-Web began.
A considerable measure has occurred from that point forward. We might want to put the introduction of the dynamic web to when CGI, Common Gateway Interface, was first presented in 1993, 14 years back. CGI was an approach to give a website a chance to run content (typically Perl contents in those days) on the webserver and show the yield.
Presently the web has advanced immensely and is powered by server-side technologies and languages, for example, PHP, Java, ASP.NET, Python, Ruby (with Ruby on Rails), and numerous others.
The Future of the Dynamic Websites
Nowadays websites are much of the time undeniable program-based applications. The line between web and desktop applications is obscuring more for consistency that passes.
There is a solid development towards RIA (Rich Internet Applications) where some outstanding activities are JavaFX from Sun, Flex from Adobe, and Silverlight from Microsoft. These structures consider wealthier, more intelligent, and responsive web applications that can have more components of customary desktop applications.
It appears to be likely that the distinction between what is a desktop application and what is a web application will in the long run vanish.
One thing we know without a doubt: Whatever the future of the web holds, it will be an intriguing ride.
