Web Application Development

Web applications allow for software to be delivered to nearly any device. Since they are served over the internet, web applications can be released with little friction, allowing for evolution and experimentation. Managing application data thoughtfully enables your application to scale and can lead to future business opportunities.

What is web app development?


Web applications are delivered to your customers over the web rather than being downloaded and installed on a device. Most customers see the frontend, which includes the user interface and design elements of your product or service. However, much of the functionality is encapsulated within backend APIs that handle the data flowing into and out of your application.


Front End Development

The frontend is the vehicle to deliver a great customer experience. Frontend software brings your customers on a journey and leaves the impression you want. User-centered design incorporates customer desirability, business viability, and technical feasibility. Custom frontend software is an interactive extension of your brand.


Back End Development

Backend services, like APIs and data stores, share and maintain the data your application needs. Reduce time to market by integrating with other systems, like payment providers, internal reporting tools, or external SaaS products. Custom backend development should model a business’s operations and ensure application security, maintainability, and reliability.


Stride’s Approach


Our approach is guided by our client’s unique needs. We have technology preferences based on our experiences and specific areas of expertise. However, the technologies that best solve your most important challenges determine the right technical approach.


Full Stack Development

We reduce time to market by engineering applications iteratively, feature-by-feature. The same engineers are responsible for all frontend and backend development. Responsibility for both frontend and backend development is called full stack development.

The benefits of full stack development are:

  • De-risked development by reducing inter-team dependencies
  • Cohesive design
  • Maintainable code


Front End Development

Modern web applications can run code (i.e. JavaScript, CSS, and HTML) within an end user’s browser. The result is a responsive and interactive user experience broadly termed a single page app, or SPA. 

React, Vue, and Angular are a few examples of JavaScript frameworks that ease the development of single page apps.

React is our tool when building single page apps. We have specialized expertise working with tools and libraries within the React ecosystem such as: 

  • Redux
  • Context API
  • Hooks
  • Webpack packaging 


Back End Development

Backend services store and retrieve application data. Backend API design formalizes the communication between your application and other services. Custom business logic and integrations are usually handled on the backend. Backend technologies often reflect specific tradeoffs and competencies of an organization.

Striders have experience across a wide range of backend ecosystems: 

  • JavaScript and TypeScript backends based on Node.js aid in rapid development. 
  • Python backend technologies, like Django and Flask, have consistency and compatibility with popular data processing and data munging tools. 
  • Golang and gRPC support systems running on Kubernetes
  • Ruby and its Rails framework have proven to be great tools for rapidly developing APIs and web applications.
  • Java, and the Spring framework are standbys for reliability.
