  • There’s plenty of room for Vue.js to pick up a lot of Angular and jQuery users at a fast clip, but they will likely hit a brick wall when they have to start stealing users from React to continue the growth streak.
  • I predict strong Vue.js growth for another year or two, followed by a much harder battle with React in the top spot and Vue.js relegated to second fiddle unless something big changes to upset the balance.
  • Why so Much Interest in React?Browsing through the React job listings, I noticed an interesting trend — a lot of them were for things that we don’t think of as front-end web work: – React Native (for perspective, there are more of these openings than the total number of Vue.js openings)React for IoTReact…
  • Which Topics Should You Study?Like last year, you can’t go wrong focusing on the essentials, but you should place more emphasis on functional programming for React apps.
  • With that in mind, here are some topics you should study: – Basic ES6 syntaxClass syntax and its many pitfalls — It’s OK to use class for React components, but avoid extending from your own classes, avoid instanceof, and avoid forcing users of your classes to use the new keyword.Functional programming software…

Last year, I wrote an article rounding up the top tech to learn in 2017. This year there are some surprises. First, software ate the world, the web ate software, and JavaScript ate the web. In 2018…

  • There are still lots of developers working on Angular code bases, which shows up in Google trends:But as React continues to win customer satisfaction surveys, React growth has left Angular (and everything else) in the dust.What About Vue.js?
  • Vue.js is going to have a much harder time stealing users from React than they are having stealing users from jQuery and Angular.There’s plenty of room for Vue.js to pick up a lot of Angular and jQuery users at a fast clip, but they will likely hit a brick wall…

  • In fact, I found quite a few React job listings that didn’t even mention JavaScript.React also offers a rich, vibrant ecosystem piggybacking on React’s de-facto standards — something the JavaScript world hasn’t seen since jQuery plugins ruled the web.The question is no longer “which framework?”
  • We have a great framework to build apps on now, and there’s a great ecosystem settling in around React.Which Topics Should You Study?Like last year, you can’t go wrong focusing on the essentials, but you should place more emphasis on functional programming for React apps.React is great for two primary reasons:Deterministic…
