Your look at evolving tech trends
Pluralsight Technology Index

The tech world waits for no one, and even the most popular software development languages and frameworks don’t stay relevant forever. Enter the Pluralsight Technology Index. 

The Pluralsight Technology Index pulls from nearly 8 billion data points to calculate global popularity and trending growth rates. This creates a comprehensive source to see which development technologies are the most in demand now and likely to stay valuable in the future.
