Whilst working on various projects this semester I’ve encountered the following technologies: Angular, React, Vue, and Node. I’ve experimented with them to some extent and found Node Package Manager quite useful.

Initially, when I first heard about them I thought they were JavaScript Libraries like JQuery, however, they are far from it. Each technology is designed to build an application for use on the web.

Node you even have to set up as a server from which web pages are served from. This makes it particularly tricky, as most shared hosting packages don’t offer Node, or the ability to install it on the server, however, PHP is widely available and has a lot of support and documentation as it has been around for such a long time.

I think these technologies will come in very useful in the future. For now though, I’m not quite competent enough.
