In our 7th episode of CloudDev Clarity, Julie & I cover the state of web frameworks. We talk about all the front-end frameworks by reviewing the results of the 2021 State of JavaScript survey results.

Many of the frameworks we cover are probably familiar to most of you such as React, Angular, and Ember. But others you might not have heard of like Svelte, Solid, Lit, and Alpine.js! We’ve got hands-on experience with more than just the popular ones, React and Angular… which ones? You’ll have to tune in!

But that’s not all… we also get a bit opinionated and briefly discuss what is and is not a web framework and go further covering which ones we’ve used, liked, and disliked. We end with a spicy discussion on making decisions about which web framework to use based on the context of where your solution is going to be used.
