Will JavaScript be the next big language?

Stefan Tilkov,

Ola Bini:

Further, I really don’t believe in the idea that there will be a next big language. Call me strange, but just because we’ve had this cycle two or three times doesn’t mean it will continue like that. I believe development is qualitively different now compared to 15 years ago. The challenges we meet are different and demand different tools. One single language will not cut it. I think the future lies in layered languages with different properties.
