I was just about to post this, when I noticed it sitting at the top of my stream, so I'll just repost instead.
I wouldn't rely on survey data, though this is fairly big sample, but it's still interesting in any case to see what folks think is happening.
StackOverflow users picked AngularJS as top framework in lists of Most Popular and Most Wanted (desired) technologies.  Actually, the only framework that made it in the top 10 on either list!

Package Android APKs for Chrome.
The Chrome Team has released a public tool to turn your android APK to run on Chrome. Now we'll see a lot more apps that run on Android, ChromeOS, and Chrome on Linux, Mac and Windows (notice there is no iOS).
https://developer.chrome.com/apps/getstarted_arc provides some useful tips for packaging and using Google Play Services on Chrome.

Dear users, whenever an app asks you to login using Google (or most other SSO providers, like Facebook) inside of a webview in the app itself, do not do it.
The reason is simple: the app can control the webview contents, and access the account data you enter in a lot of ways, including getting you to a fake login page.
If you're using Google to log into an app, only do it using the native account authorization flow (no account data entry required). Similar thing for Facebook in some cases, and Dropbox as well.
Twitter is the notable exception here as it doesn't have a native flow. It is though still possible to send the user to the system browser, so that the identity of the SSO provider can be verified (https sign, visible url, etc).

Developers, please don't ever do this. This is not needed, secure nor a good UX.

Post about how we have moved from monolithic Microsoft model, to the agile best-of-bread apps approach in our daily life.
Not many folks use just Microsoft any more. It's a mixture of different operating systems, different eco-systems, but often the same app across all the devices you use.
