I’d like to comment on an area where desktop apps seem to rule. I have the pleasure of developing desktop applications that are used to control robots, sensors, pumps, heaters, digital IO devices; FPGAs ’and the list can go on. These application require UI’s that range from simple (for the production worker) to elaborate (for the engineers), they must present all the required elements in a clean modern UI. These applications are very specific when it comes to the OS and additional API’s or 3rd party libraries, so we do program to a limited customer base. Additionally the applications do use local and wide area network communications, backend databases and network services; if any of these resources are not available the application must compensate (it most continue to run, production cannot stop). I am interested in WEB technologies, applications for Smartphones, Wearables, SmartTV’s etc. (we may make the overall picture and status of the equipment viewable on a SmartPhone). But to control this type of equipment the desktop APP seems to be the way to go and desktop apps will be needed.
