Out of above frameworks, JQuery is the clear winner so much so that it looked like an Outlier from statistical perspective. Thus, from analysis perspective, I have put it aside (excluded) and moved ahead with analysis of 6 out of above 7 JS frameworks.
- AngularJS – 71%
- BackboneJS – 9%
- KnockoutJS – 8%
- EmberJS – 7%
- ReactJS – 3%
- CanJS – 3%
Observations & Suggestions for UI Developers
Following are different observations in relation with distribution of job openings across different JS frameworks:
- JQuery still rules and hence, UI developer should still remain in touch with JQuery. Also, the fact that Mobile apps uses JQuery makes it much more sustainable.
- AngularJS has been showing steady growth in terms of increasing job openings across last several months. Thus, sooner than later, it may be a nice idea for UI developers, in general, to also get on board with AngularJS and learn the skills appropriately.
- It may be a good idea to understand underlying concepts and fundamentals of other JS frameworks such as BackboneJS, KnockoutJS, ReactJS etc. They also seem to be picking up well.
