Web Development: What’s Big In 2019?

I try to keep up with web development trends but it’s hard to keep pace since it’s such a fast evolving field. Barely a week goes by without the release of a new JS framework, elaborate build tool or testing suite — all of them touted as the one to learn. Sorting the hype from the genuinely useful is no mean feat, so my aim in this article is to summarise some of the most interesting happenings that web development saw in the last year, and what trends we expect to see more of in 2019. A technology or framework doesn’t have to be brand new to be on our list here, it just needs to be growing rapidly or evolving in an interesting way. Let’s take a look! Looking Back on 2018: SPA,  CSS Grid, and Speed Single Page Applications…

Looking Ahead to 2019: WordPress in the Year to Come

What a year! At the end of 2017, I remember thinking that the previous year had been one of the biggest when it came to change in WordPress. But I didn’t know what was in store for 2018!2018 has seen some of the most fundamental and farthest-reaching changes in WordPress since its inception, embodied by the Gutenberg plugin (and the row over it).But in my view, it’s not Gutenberg that will dominate 2019—it’s the changes it heralds.So let’s take a look at what 2019 might have in store for WordPress and its community of users and developers.The WordPress CodebaseGutenberg represents the beginning of a fundamental shift in the WordPress codebase.Remember Matt Mullenweg’s State of the Word 2015 (yes, it was that long ago), when he told everyone to “learn JavaScript, deeply”?Well, now is the time when those people who listened to him will…

CES 2019: Dell’s stuck a Core i9 desktop CPU in their new Alienware Area-51m laptop

While everyone else was busy adding Nvidia’s new RTX graphics chips to their laptops at this year’s CES, Dell’s been busy with something else entirely for their new flagship Alienware Area-51m laptop. As well as being the first laptop to bear their new Alienware Legend design, it’s also the world’s first laptop to have a full-blown desktop Intel Core i9-9900K CPU crammed inside it.

CES 2019: DisplayLink Showing Wireless Adapter Reference Design For Oculus Rift

At CES 2019 DisplayLink is showing off a reference design for a wireless adapter for the Oculus Rift. The company first showed off wireless VR all the way back at E3 2017. The prototype, in cooperation with Intel, became the official HTC Vive wireless adapter in 2018. There already is a wireless adapter on the market for the Rift- the TPCast. But the HTC Vive adapter powered by DisplayLink seems to have less issues and an easier setup, so this could be a welcome addition to the Rift. Of course, the main issue with all existing wireless VR adapters is price. Both the TPCast and HTC adapter sell for around $300. This is almost as much as the entire Rift package price- now $349. The fact DisplayLink powers the HTC adapter raises the tantalizing possibility that…
