10 things web developers should learn in 2015
2. AngularJS 2.0
4. ECMAScript 6
5. MEAN stack
The MEAN stack or MongoDB, express.js, AngularJS and Node.js seems to be one of the most popular stack choices in use today, it’s even got its own website now mean.io. There’s of course a very good reason why these technologies have become so popular individually and in combination. This year I have no doubt that the MEAN stack will increase in popularity so its important web developers are well versed in the aforementioned technologies.
7. Pouch & Couch DB
The MEAN stack is supported by the extremely popular mongoDB NoSQL database but I advise that you take a look at CouchDB and its client-side equivalent PouchDB. Pouch makes it possible to add a very flexible and scalable persistence layer to your apps. It’s really easy to create offline web apps with PouchDB and it also has replication built in making it possible to sync all client data to a central CouchDB database out of the box. Take a look at pouchdb.com for more info and check out the AngularJS module also.
9. Facebooks React.js
10. JSON Web Tokens
JWT’s are the new way to provide access to API’s instead of the old fashioned API key. JWT’s provide many advantages such as granular security, debuggability and expiration control. JWT’s are appearing in more and more places because of their flexibility and ease of use so as a developer its important to learn more about them and understand how and when to use them.
This year is definitely going to be a very exciting year for web development and these are just some of the technologies which I believe will be in the spotlight and as web developers we should be learning.
