Tech Survey Results
React is Rising
Almost half (45%) currently use Angular, and more than half (66%) are interested in React. There are fewer people interested in Angular than using Angular, and that may spell a pending decline in Angular use.
Angular currently dominates the front end component library landscape, but judging by these results, React seems poised to give Angular a run for its money in the coming months.
Notable “other” responses for the library interest question include Polymer, RxJS, Koa, and Immutable.js.
ES6 Has Arrived
ES6 Modules Embraced
We asked participants which ES6 features they’re most interested in.
The future looks bright for ES6, Node, and React. Any tech that tries to compete directly with any of them will have an uphill battle. ES6 adoption has happened much more quickly than we imagined it would, and that’s a good thing for everybody.
This survey was conducted prior to the announcement of WebAssembly, a new binary format and compile target for browsers. In the next survey, we’ll include questions about wasm, as well as Polymer, RxJS, Koa, and Immutable.js.
Thank you for participating. We’re excited to hear from you again, soon!
