  • From their last year insight I already knew JavaScript is already the most popular language around the globe; but I was also kinda afraid of JS loosing its popularity as webassembly is being strong.
  • The popularity is still growing – In 2017 `66.7%` developers were using/familiar with JavaScript.
  • JavaScript developers are underpaid since years and it seems the trend continues.
  • Mmm… I think for JS lovers, they don’t. Irrespective of the pay or any other factors, we will continue loving, developing and contributing to the JavaScript community.

From their last year insight I already knew JavaScript is already the most popular language around the globe; but I was also kinda afraid of JS loosing its popularity as webassembly is being strong.

Fortunately nothing to worry my dear JS developers. Everything is cool down here. And here is a small comparison of StackOverflow’s insight of 2017 and 2018.

The popularity is still growing

In 2017 `66.7%` developers were using/familiar with JavaScript. However in 2018 the percentage increased by `5`. Definitely the new users are more tend to use JavaScript and probably the old ones are also onboarding themselves to JavaScript. Really good for the community.

Another good takeaway here is to see Typescript growing. I strongly believe that JavaScript needs the support of Typescript to reach the peak of success.

A light on the frameworks

Love you NodeJust look at the amazing jump of node.js here. `27.9%` to `49.9%`. Even this jump started from 2016. In 2016 insight of StackOverflow, it was somewhere around `17%`. So, 17 to 29.9 to 49.9. Now I am hopeful for another big jump in 2019. I might be biased towards my love 😀
