Osmani’s JavaScript 2015 Writeup

Front end technologies have become increasingly difficult keep up with. A revolutionary new library comes out every two months, and browsers have been aggressive in pushing new standards. It’s exciting and wearying all at once.

Fortunately, Addy Osmani has an excellent write-up of the state of JavaScript as we move in to 2015. He discusses web components, module systems, and DOM rendering, among a few other hot topics. Regarding a few questions he poses, Mr. Osmani admits:

I’m an idiot, still haven’t ‘figured’ this all out and am still learning as I go along.

It’s reassuring that even one of the brightest minds in the field has some trouble with this stuff.
