There isn’t a better example of a continuously changing profession than software development. By the time you’ve finished writing a program, its code has been outdated by the latest technology! Ok, maybe we’re exaggerating a little, but the speed at which this industry moves is astonishing. In this article we take a quick look at the main web development software that’s new for 2015, and what the future holds.

If you don’t agree with any of these trends, then please let us know why in the comments!


Ok, ok, we know; React isn’t new in 2015. It is however going to keep winning the hearts and minds of software developers. Seeing frameworks like Angular, Ember and Meteor all embrace React means virtual DOM-diffing and uni-directional data flows are a proven pattern.


Model View Controller is here to stay — just not on the client. JavaScript frameworks seem like they’re in a constant state of rejuvenation. That can be a sign the problem is being solved the wrong way. Flux is simple, easy to work with, and pairs great with React.


Lightly typed, dynamic languages are great for rapid iteration on the web, but it makes a lot of sense to split off parts of a large project into more focused, smaller applications. Break up your monolithic application with API-driven, modular components.

NOT jQuery

jQuery has been the most important, impactful library in web development for the past decade, but manual DOM manipulation is on the way out. Instead, think about user interactions, data state, and components — then have something like React manage the rest for you.

Server side JSX

Node and JSX fit together naturally thanks to V8, but for teams not heavily invested in the Node ecosystem, we think there is room for interfaces between V8 and other languages.
