The first one was about cloud-based SAAS products. In this, we talked about how to build one yourself and why?

Cloud-based applications are the best as they are cost-effective and doesn’t require an infrastructure to establish. The next thing to decide while developing an application is to select the software with the help of which you can build an application. The most common choice are PHP, Python, Java, and Android.

The final thing is to decide which Database Management System (DBMS) you should choose. There are many types of DBMS, but the best one for you will be document-oriented DBMS. The reason behind it is that it is more manageable and reduces the need for object-relational mapping.

UX or User Experience designing means creating a design that provides a meaningful experience to the consumers. Whereas, UI or User Interface is the interface with the help of which a user interacts with the hardware.

These two are not the same; UI is just a part of the UX. UI is all about designing, whereas UX is about the overall performance of a software/hardware. Both are important if you want to build software. The five key skills you need to learn before designing are –
