Web technology trends 2015

As everyone know, technologies behind web are changing now extremely quickly. Every month brings new ideas and technologies, which possibly could change the way we create software for web.

As it’s quite interesting for me to see where those trends go, plus which parts of web development are more stable ones, I’ve page with data I was able to find presenting them in a clear way.


I was looking for few things, firstly which mvc JavaScript framework is used, what is the preferred way for creating html views and finally, what are the server technologies that enables fronted for particular company.


I’ve chosen few companies from the most popular ones (see wikipedia), but considering only those companies which serves websites with extensive set of data together with big popularity. The companies I’ve chosen are:

  • Netflix
  • LinkedIn
  • Google
  • Facebook
  • Khan Academy
  • New York Times
  • Huffington Post
  • Espn
  • Dropbox
  • eBay
  • Airbnb
  • The Guardian
  • PayPal
  • Amazon
  • Twitter

So as you can see, the list is quite long.


I was able to observe interesting facts, like what kind of technologies belongs to server-side old stack (php, java, python, ruby) and what defines the new stack (node.js, scala, go, hack). Besides of that, it’s easily visible that only 3 MVC frameworks matter in JavaScript world: backbone, ember and angular. The another observation is that react really becomes popular, and more and more companies decide to use it. Let’s see in 2016, who from those list will join react users.


All things I was able to find are presented on my github web trends page.
