Every Monday, we take a step back and look at all the cool stuff that went down during the previous week. Last week we launched our JAXenter survey, Java EE Guardians became Jakarta EE Ambassadors and Microsoft Blazor is likely to go mainstream this year. Let’s take a closer look.

Microsoft Blazor to become mainstream in 2020

Microsoft Blazor is an open source framework for creating web apps made up of web UI components using C# and HTML. It takes design inspiration from JavaScript frameworks like Angular and React. In 2020, Microsoft Blazor is likely to become more commonly used, especially with web developers coming from a JavaScript and WebAssembly background.

JAXenter survey: Which technologies are relevant for you in 2020?

What technologies will be in high demand in 2020? Last week, we launched our annual survey to see what languages, frameworks and tools are on your agenda for this year. Whether you’re still languishing on ancient Java or cruising the bleeding edge using tools we’ve never heard of, we’re interested in what you have to say! So go on, answer a few questions over your cup of coffee.

It’s not too late to take part in the survey.

Java EE Guardians become Jakarta EE Ambassadors

We’ve been following Jakarta EE’s progress pretty closely lately, including the Jakarta EE 9 release plan. However, the transformation of Java EE into Jakarta EE is not the only metamorphosis that has taken place recently. The community of Enterprise Java supporters formerly known as Java EE Guardians have been undergoing their own rebrand.

AI and AIOps: Top 5 Technology Trends for 2020

What will 2020 look like in terms of AI and AIOps? We launched a three-part series on five major trends regarding technology, market and users. The most significant changes will be seen in user behaviors and user practices, this is the year where we will see substantial transformation. We started out with the five technology trends and part two regarding market trends was released last week as well. Stay tuned for part three.

pandas 1.0: “The 1.0 release does not mean a conclusion, or even slowing down, of pandas’ development.”

The Python library pandas, used for data analysis and manipulation, has already been around for 12 years and is being used in production. What led to the recent milestone release 1.0? We spoke to Tom Augspurger from the pandas developer team. He shared some insights on the new release, his personal highlights and where pandas is headed in the future.
