Trending Web Technologies 2014 ... Utah?!

Sleeping giant, Utah, emerges as the top web technology hub ousting the previously reigning champs California, New York, and Texas.

At least that is the headline I envisioned in my mind after running several comparison on Google Trends this morning (link links to search)

Trending Web Technologies 2014: Laravel

I ran similar searches comparing terms such as

  • AngularJS
  • Ruby on Rails
  • NodeJS
  • PHP
  • CodeIgniter
  • JavaScript
  • Laravel

All of which declared Utah the champion (overwhelmingly for both Laravel and JavaScript)

Now, I can't speak for what these numbers actually mean. I have sincere and fact-based doubt that these technologies are actually employed more in Utah than the others. Possibly it means that us Utahns just lean a bit heavier on the magic "I can't quite remember how to do this, so I'll just look it up real quick" Google search. However, it does give a nice little boost to my Utah-resident pride ;).
