ThoughtWorks Technology Radar

The ThoughtWorks Technology Advisory Board creates a Technology Radar report annually to help decision makers understand emerging technologies and trends that affect the market today.

You can review a copy of this report at: http://thoughtworks.fileburst.com/assets/thoughtworks-tech-radar-march-2012-us-color.pdf

Be sure to check out page 3 on the report if you don’t look at any other pages in the report.  It is a single page snapshot that sums everything up (techniques, tools, platforms, and languages).

Javascript as a first class language (strong adopt) and Logic in stored procedures (hold – process with caution) caught my eye, as have recently made decisions that are in line with these trends.  Of course there is a lot more information in the chart than just that, and you can use this chart as a launch pad to become aware of newer technologies or as a gut check as to whether or not a technology is the right one to be using.
