Web App Development Frameworks: too many to shake a stick at…

I almost decided to simply add a series of “update” links to my prior post on my quest to understand the current state of “modern web app development”, and in particular, tools, frameworks and environments of choice.  Now as ever, many technologists live in their silos, and while the best and most enlighten attempt to glance across at what others are doing, keep up with new ideas and tool kits, the reality is that most top-tier, hard working, delivering-in-a-crunch developer / architects are almost always too busy to do as much of this sort of thing as they’d like.  And while I am not one of those, I am also a busy person with many balls in the air, ideas kicking around, prototypes-in-process, apps-in-process, with a real job and various research projects…

My prior post focused on the relative popularity of various “platforms” and javascript frameworks, without any real regard for which things work together, which compete, or many other factors.  In short, it is a “dog’s breakfast” of random observations with a good link or two to more coherent material.   Arguably, not very useful.

I will rectify this with future posts about specific combinations of web app development tools and platforms, where there are available tutorials and low barriers to adoption.  And after about five of these, i hope to have come up with a more coherent scheme for comparison.
