November Highlights

November's job postings were in line with most of 2018 as React remains on top with a strong lead again after a close call last month. If this holds for React in December, it'll have been in the top spot for the full calendar year. That will be the first time a technology will have that distinction in these rankings. If that's not enough React, it's also worth mentioning that November, 2018 marks the 2 year anniversary of React's first win in November, 2016.

One area of movement to note is in the container space. No surprise given the amount of coverage of Docker and Kubernetes in developer circles. Both Docker and Kubernetes are nearing the Top 10 together and Kuberetes reached its all time at #13.
