Best Programming Languages for Backend Web Development

by Jellyfish Technologies Software Development Company

If front-end is the face of a web application, then back-end becomes its brain. The quality of the brain (back-end) determines how well your front-end behaves, at every circumstance. So developers have to put in a great deal of attention in choosing a perfect programming language based on the requirement. Here are some fascinating server-side web development programming languages value considering:


Java is mainly used for android development, software development and most importantly for back-end web development. With time, java is rising to be a multi-purpose language. Java is easy to scale and require comparably lesser hours to improve the code. Its cross-platform compatibility lets you superimpose your development on any operating system and any hardware. Java is also comparably a budget-friendly language.


Node, apart from being scalable and easy to learn, as in Java, it is also used as a single programming language. Which means, you can use javascript both at the front-end and back-end of the web application using a runtime environment. Better than Ruby and Python, node handles the concurrent request handling efficiently. Even with the cons of asynchronous programming model and unstable APIs it is not stopping companies from adopting node in their businesses.


It is conjointly compatible with a variety of Content Management Systems and include interesting frameworks like Laravel, Symphony and CakePHP. According to previous research and assumptions, a beginner can find it terribly simple to learn PHP. With a large community of developers, beginners have lot of resources to decide on from. Very little process power demands create PHP language fast.


In the past times, Python was restricted to desktop programming. The companies providing back-end development services nowadays prefer python because of its extensive support libraries, short learning curve, powerful integration feature, and speedy productivity. Python has a strong community development which makes its modules more and more stable and efficient. Yes, Python can be a language of the future.


Even though it has few disadvantages like slow run-time, limited future development from Microsoft, higher cost many developers prefer this because of availability of resources, support from the larger community and multiple server platforms.

RoR(Ruby on Rails):

Not only like other web frameworks it is simple to use and learn but reduces your development time by 25%. RoR is suitable for every kind of industries by providing both front-end and back-end web solution just like Node. Rails provide all the concepts from traditional MVC frameworks like models, views, controllers and database migrations. It is a very good choice if your budget is limited and the project is a long term.

In brief, all the above-mentioned languages are easier to learn and each one has its pros and cons just like any other things in engineering. Jellyfish technologies’ software engineers have been the earliest adopters of the above-mentioned languages and their expertise grew exponentially with the growing amount of projects they handle.
