Top JavaScript Trends You Should Know About in 2020

What was going on in the world of JavaScript development in the year 2019? In the second part of our developer nähkästchens the experts to see the Flops of the year 2019. Also, you dare to take a view on 2020 and comment on which technologies you should employ in the new year.

What was going on in the world of JavaScript development in the year 2019? We asked four experts to share their personal Tops and Flops of the technology of the year 2019. Manfred Steyer, Peter Kröner, Tobias Struckmeier and Golo Roden chat secrets from your Developer and give an Outlook to the year 2020.

What didn't you like at the WebTech-world this year?

I was a little surprised about a lot of undifferentiated discussions on the topic of Micro Frontends. In between, you had read only the extreme positions. This is a shame, because the topic of Software architecture to the Balancing of different objectives and because the architecture must fit to your own goals. There are so pe se, no good or bad architectures. They are merely more or less suitable for specific objectives.

Apart from the Problem with JS-Bloat, I find it alarming, that 2019 was nobody on the monopolists-the throne of Google Chrome saws. This would, in my view, urgently necessary, because this is the only competition in the Browser business for the long term. It is not anticipated that soon Chrome to the tyrannical IE6 2.0 is, but in the necessary position in the market, Google would be using his product quite. In General, web developers-use of language, it is striking that increasingly rare of Standards and the support question implicitly narrowed more and more to Chrome. We still have no real Problem, but you don't have to wait until the child is added at the bottom of the fountain.

That Web Components and Accessibility are often still too much neglected, is maintained.

Me is missing to Mature that some of the technologies is given and instead, a would-be replacement on the market is thrown – the is not but Mature, in turn, is also back. A good example of the Problem, to push messages from the Server to the web browser. There are now a number of different solutions, but all of your individual problems. the Websockets? Are problematic with Load-Balancers and in some mobile networks. the HTML5 Server-Sent Events (SSE)? Terrific work, just no Custom Header is transmitted, what it would take, for example, for authentication by the Token. The Fetch API in conjunction with the Streams API? A great, modern approach that works, however, at least currently, there is hardly a web browser correctly. the AJAX Long-Polling? Old-fashioned and cumbersome, but by far the most reliable. Why can't you develop a simple yet powerful idea as SSE, but must instead create directly a new replacement?

Your forecast for 2020: What you need to know in 2020? absolutely.

I have the feeling that the JavaScript Ecosystem is slowly stabilizing. It formed the de facto out Standards, and that keeps the sprawl in check. Interesting the subject of WebAssembly is definitely, but probably not as a JavaScript replacement (as some hope), but as a Supplement for APIs. Also, need to be in 2020 more developers with the theme of architecture against the Background of JavaScript to deal with, especially since JavaScript solutions are always larger and often long-term maintenance.

I have visited lately companies, the me your existing projects in terms of Best Practices and further development opportunities can investigate. Meanwhile, the modern SPA Stack is so long in the world, that we veritable Legacy projects. To lead this in a new future, in my eyes, becoming more and more important. I don't think they will win in 2020, a flower-pot, by reciting the documentation of the hip Frameworks of the hour. More important is the question of how and whether to make existing projects fit for 2020 and what are the Lessons from the past.

RxJS, Cypress, and design systems.

The world is at the end of the year 2019 before the much more serious problems than a year ago: first of All, the climate protection. My impression is that this is less time remained, „to develop revolutionary“ technologies, which is why there is currently, in my view, no really exciting new developments. Of course, there are interesting things, for example, WebAssembly, but this is more of an Evolution than a Revolution. In the world of the Cloud has not done some real breaks, like a few years ago with Docker and Kubernetes before but just. And also the hype of AI and Blockchain have calmed down.

I don't think that advice is for 2020 at Best, artificially to find the next big thing, but its basic technology Stack focus should be. That means for me: make sure I can know in the relevant technologies up to date, and am in it all for me, the important innovations and apply. For me personally, the Stack consists of JavaScript, TypeScript, Node.js, Docker, and Kubernetes, and on the conceptual side from CQRS, Event Sourcing and Domain-driven Design. And it is precisely with these topics I will employ me in the year 2020, because there are, even in familiar waters, still so much to learn. The man overlooks the fact often. In this sense: On the Banks of old!
