Desktop Application Development

Desktop application development dominated the software world for many years. However, with the rise of the internet, web applications took over with an incredible pace. When smartphones became popular, mobile applications came to be in huge demand, pushing desktop applications into third place.
While the previous statement might be true to startups, there is still an incredible amount of software development happening in desktop applications. Consider programs like Excel, Adobe Photoshop and the Chrome browser.
Besides similar existing monstrous applications, there are many good reasons to develop NEW desktop applications.
Some of those are:

  • The application doesn’t have to be connected to the internet
  • You can interact better with the user’s PC. Web applications run in a sandbox environment and block almost all interactions
  • Desktop apps have better performance than web apps
  • Running serious algorithms on the client side is possible but much harder with a web application
  • Utilizing Threads is much easier and more effective in a desktop application
  • Sometimes you don’t care if the application will be Web or Desktop, but your team is more experienced with Desktop technologies

Developing for Desktop is great for a lot of reasons. You get to work with excellent mature technologies that stood the test of time. The debugging is as best as it comes. Arguably, desktop apps have less complexity and development is easier. In short, you’re in luck!
Like with all software, there are many different ways to go when developing desktop applications. This includes different programming languages, frameworks, and architecture decisions. All of which will differ according to the individual needs of your product.
