A decade in the making
The technology landscape has undergone monumental upheavals over the past 10 years. Microservices, cloud, containers, NoSQL — almost every aspect of the tech stack has evolved. Thoughtworks Technology Radar has tracked these changes.
Here's a quick look at how that's played out in numbers.
The headline figures
981 blips have appeared on the Tech Radar over the past 10 years
46 people have contributed to creating the various editions
40,000 people subscribe to the Radar
63 blips made it straight into Adopt
The big movers
The Tech Radar tracks things that are in motion, so as technology matures, it might move rings — and potentially, into our Adopt ring.
- 32 blips that started in Assess eventually moved into Adopt
- 120 days — the quickest a blip moved from Assess to Adopt Terraform
- 52 blips moved from Trial to Adopt
- 1,126 days — the biggest non-mover: WS-* beyond basic profile”. It was in Hold.
The biggest misses
Hold is where we put things that we think should be approached with caution. In some cases, items we’ve been enthusiastic about, fail to meet our expectations.
1 blip had made it to Adopt before ending up in Hold: Enzyme
1 blip started in Trial before ending up in Hold: AngularJS
4 blips moved from Assess to Hold: Backbone.js; SPDY; Pace-layered Application Strategy; Rich Internet applications
A tale of unfulfilled potential
670 days — the longest any blip has spent in Trial without moving (offline mobile webapps)
