Recently we heard that the web platform is getting a new browser-native compile target called WebAssembly (see What is WebAssembly: The Dawn of a New Era for details). Wasm makes the web platform a more attractive compile target for other languages. That leaves us wondering what might come after JavaScript. JavaScript has some great features, but I sincerely hope we move on as soon as possible. JavaScript is great and it taught us a lot, but programming will evolve. There will be life after JavaScript.
