The end of the year is getting closer, and you know what that means: "All I Want For Christmas Is You" is about to once again get inextricably stuck in your brain.
This was a huge undertaking, especially as the State of HTML survey (done in collaboration with Lea Verou) was our most ambitious survey yet, with all-new questions, new UI elements, new data structures, and a lot of discussions to get everything just right.
(And by the way, I actually worked on a fifth survey this year, for local company TokyoDev – check them out if you're curious about what it's like to work as a software engineer here in Japan!)
As you can imagine setting up five different surveys (in addition to working on our entirely custom stack) takes time, and for that reason I haven't yet been able to get to actually analyzing the data from the HTML and React survey.
This may have to wait until 2024, but hopefully it'll be worth it!
And what's more, every major front-end framework now has one or more matching meta-framework such as Next.js, Nuxt, or SvelteKit, focused on providing a great developer experience out of the box.
