Web & App Development

Web development techniques have come a long way in recent years.  Not so long ago, almost everything happened on the server but with the explosion in JavaScript based frameworks which run in the client browser, have made it easier to create extremely fast web applications which transfer a minimal amount of data over the wire.  These web applications are serviced by a JSON API which can often be reused to service native apps.
