Developer Roadmaps

Developer Roadmaps

Something that’s proving popular on Medium these days are “development roadmaps” that outline a roadmap approach to choosing techniques and technologies for certain technical domains (for example Web development or Dev Ops). Some of these are particularly powerful for putting the many bewildering technologies all on one page with logical grouping and a visual representation of how they interact. Modern web development has seen so much change over recent times that it is very easy to get lost and become overwhelmed and these roadmaps can help clear the fog (a little).

My favourite is the Web Developer Roadmap in 2019 maintained by Kamran Ahmed over on GitHub.

I have shared this with several people who have also found it useful regardless of their level of expertise. The front end roadmap is a great guide to what the community are currently settling on as the standard choices for tooling and techniques. I have checked back to the roadmap a few times over the last 6 months to verify my approach when starting on a new project and I find that visualising the options makes decision making easier.

There are also Backend and DevOps Roadmaps included which are equally as useful.
