JavaScript Isn't The Future Of Web Development

Is JavaScript dead? Maybe not yet, but what about in the next 5-10 years? Where is web development headed?

  1. OK. I like the way you're reasoning. I think it's possible and maybe it's true and happen something like happen on blogging planet just by twitter, Instagram,… . But beside the doomsday will be soon or not, still it is wise to start learn C#.

  2. There is still PHP being developed. Sure JS is gonna die….but it's gonna be a REAL slow death. Just like all the other old tech. Hell, there's still PERL scripts being used. 😛

  3. One other important thing to consider is that with a framework like Blazor/C#, a company/organisation only needs to invest in one programming language for pretty much all tiers of an application!

  4. JavaScript isn't going anywhere in the next 10-20 years. Mostly because most of the internet is running their websites on it. While VR and AR technology will indeed use applications that you can only build in game engines (mostly 3d stuff), the most used applications will regular apps you'd see on your phone or laptop which includes browsers, and those will work exactly the same except it will be in a floating window in 3d vision. Web development will be one of the last industries to change drastically due to VR and AR, mostly because it doesn't need to. The same technology is used to create websites that run on computers and phones. You think that we'll use something else with AR glasses?
    The way websites are structured now is one of the most effective ways to give information to a user. My prediction will be that well still be using JavaScript for AR just with an extra plug in to make websites appear as a 2d window in 3d.
    But learning a new coding language like c# is definitely a good idea .

  5. big companies like google and facebook are investing on javascript for example we have V8 engine from chrome and react from facebook, do you think they going to keep investing down the road or they might just drop it?

  6. I have a significantly hard time believing that VR/AR are going to become massive markets, especially for business. The main reason is that communication of data doesn't really require, in the large majority of cases, visualization of information. This could change and I could be wrong, but the jump from two dimensional to three dimensional communication is likely to take a little more time to come to fruition.

    As for glasses, why didn't the smart glasses take of already? Google glass came out in 2013 and failed due to marketing. Someone else could have easily picked them up and done their own thing, but they haven't.

    The strongest argument for learning a complied language, which is very good advice and I'm going to learn as I'm only 6-7 months into my adventure into learning coding, is that WASM is coming and it will likely hold down a fair share of the market.

    Good info, nonetheless!

  7. I am a JS fanboy, but it is nice to hear about other people's opinion of where they think JS is heading. I dont feel that Javascript is going to die…it will be improved upon and there will be other alternatives, but it wont die off…especially with companies like Vercel rebuilding their Nextjs engine with Rust and Web Assembly and utilizing Typescript to make JS more statically typed. What I do see are more options to build web applications and APIs.

    If Javascript does get replaced it will more than likely be from a descendant of JS. Just like Java, C#, python, and javascript are descended from C…I have a feeling we will see frameworks break away from JS and become their own language. I mean it is happening now with Next and Nuxt being frameworks of frameworks of javascript.

  8. Thank you very much for this, it's not everyday someone actually predicts the future so accurately. Javascript wastes so much resources which could be utilised to produce dopamine inducing experiences which people are craving more and more.

  9. I agree with this with regards to monolithic business applications, but in terms of most websites and components, Javascript will be around for quite awhile I think. I love Blazor and could see building a line of business application with it, but would I use it for a general purpose website? No way. Too much stuff that IS already HTML and JS to integrate in there. Like, how do you add Google Analytics or maps to a WASM app? I know it can be done, but is it any easier or better?
