What if JavaScript wins?  ↦

Very insightful post from Anil Dash about the impact of network effects on JavaScript and coding culture.

Anil writes on his Medium:

What this suggests is that JavaScript may be reaching escape velocity as a network, and as an ecosystem of related technologies. To be clear, there’s no winner-takes-all here — domain-specific languages will always have their uniquely valuable areas of focus. But for general-purpose coding? Everything from spreadsheet macros to Internet of Things hardware seems to default to having JavaScript be one of the primary ways to make things programmable.
