What is Backend Development and various technologies for Backend Development?

There exist many Technologies for backend development. In the area of development there are mainly two different types of Technologies, front end development as well as backend development. In frontend development we concentrate on the look and feel of the application that is to be designed. This technology is governed by frameworks and tools that help in reducing the user interface or the UI of the web application.

Backend Technologies are the Technologies that help in managing the core business logic logic for the web application. Typically these technologies are used for designing of dashboards Analytics and many different stream based functions. These Technologies connect the front end and the database together to form a uniform technology that governs the control and dissipation of information for the user.

What is BackEnd Technology?

The backend technology makes it possible for you to manage the web server and the database of the web application. The simplest example of a backend Technology would be when you read a blog or any information website on the internet. The fonts, the UI, images pictures extra constitute the front end of the application, while the web server from where the information is being rendered, and the content management system from where the information is being fetched is considered the back end of the application and this particularly forms the backend Technology.

Examples of BackEnd Technologies

The backend Technology has evolved a lot and now there are various frameworks and tools that are available that makes backend technology development possible as well as in easy and effective. Technology is natural Ruby, Python, ASP.Net, Java, JavaScript, PHP all Make it possible to design effective and efficient cooperation and coordination interfaces that help users manage the backend of the application.

Here are the various Back end technologies and its benefits for using

Ruby On Rails

Ruby On Rails is based on the open standards provided by Python. which technology enables developers and programmers to create and manage their dad web applications developed using python easily and effectively. Developers are able to manage the different aspects of the web application such as performance, processing ability and many more such things. The high-performance nature of Ruby on rails makes it the perfect choice to manage and develop back and applications.

Benefits of ROR:

  • Open source software which means that anybody can use the Technology.
  • Easy to learn and implement touch making it suitable for backend development.
  • Run on top of python which provide high performance interface for managing traffic.


We have shared with you all the backend Technologies and its benefits that they provide to developers and programmers. Choosing the technology depends upon the features and functions that it provides as well as the uses that we get for the application.
