Yet another revolution is at hand in this world we call the web. Mobile, IoT, Bots, apps, VR, AR, native code; all are changing the trajectory of the web into spaces still yet unknown. However, signs of where the web is going can be found in many of these technologies of today and, spoiler alert, it’s something of which all developers (not just JavaScript developers) will want to take note. Let’s explore how the “web of the future” might look.
