Make up with JavaScript Front-End Frameworks

JavaScript is a client-side scripting language mainly used to create webpages for building interactive websites that adapt to any device. JavaScript becomes unavoidable in development due to new libraries and frameworks continuing to arrive that support it.

What is the State of JavaScript?

The State of JavaScript survey has been conducted online every year since 2016 among JavaScript developer. These survey results let you decide your business development strategy for the upcoming year through the JavaScript ecosystem. For the current year so far, this survey had been conducted with over 21,000 respondents.

This survey covers JavaScript’s features, supporting languages, front-end frameworks, data layers, back-end frameworks, etc. In this blog post, let us explore the stats such as rankings, opinions, overall satisfaction, usage by years of experience, and salary range for those using front-end frameworks during the current year to help you make your way with JavaScript in the year 2020.

For your better understanding, each of these is visualized using Syncfusion JavaScript controls throughout this blog post.
