Topics to learn in 2017 for JavaScript Developers

In this post we will be discussing about topics to learn in 2017 for JavaScript Developers. 2016 was the year where JavaScript became more popular than ever before which led to a huge number of technologies, libraries and frameworks coming into picture. Now the real question in front of JavaScript Developers is that, what technologies or frameworks they should invest their time to learn.

Lets go through the topics, frameworks or technologies which you can learn in year 2017 if you haven't learned it yet.

1. Nodejs - This has to be first in our list. You may say that most of the JavaScript developers knows about it or has been working on it. But mind it because of its vast list of packages and usage of JavaScript on the server, it takes lot of time and effort to fully understand the framework.

2. AngularJS - AngularJS is a JavaScript MVM Framework and it is good for programmers because of two-way data binding and the use of directives.

3. Promises - In today's world developers are taking asynchronous approach over synchronous because of faster execution of the application to some extent. And Promises represents the eventual result of an asynchronous operation. Thus this year is better time to learn about Promises if you don't know it already.

4. Progressive Web Apps (PWA) - A progressive web apps uses modern web capabilities to deliver an app-like user experience. Now using PWA you can run the app in any operating system thus saving a lot of time and money to create native apps for Android, IOS and Windows. Have you heard about Ionic, I bet you do.

5. Babel - Babel is a JavaScript compiler which helps you to use ES6 features in your projects and then compiles ES5 for you to use in production. Its useful because ES6 are not supported by all the browsers.

6. ESLint - ESLint is an open source project which provides a pluggable linting utility for JavaScript. A Lint or a Linter is a program that verifies the code quality.

7. React - A JavaScript library for building User Interfaces created by Facebook. Thus if you want to create your interactive UIs fast, then do try React.js.

8. Redux - Redux is a predictable state container for JavaScript apps. It helps you to write applications that behave consistently, run in different environments (client, server and native).

9. RxJS - The Reactive Extensions for JavaScript. Reactive Extensions for JavaScript unify both the world of Promises, callbacks as well as evented data such as DOM Input, Web Workers and Web Sockets, thus you can use your asynchronous data streams almost everywhere as a stream.

10. Ember - A framework to creating ambitious web applications. With simple syntax and an emphasis on reuse and components, this JavaScript framework can make it very easy to create interactive pages.

11. Aurelia - Its an UI framework for the browser, mobile or desktop. It not only enables you to create amazing UI but do it in a way that is maintainable, testable and extensible. It takes advantage of modern tooling that means it has native modules, classes and decorators.
