Hi. This is my latest side project. I enjoy doing research for certain topics, and usually end up drawing a graph that positions all concepts so I get a good understanding of a market. I build a tool around that, which became State.of.dev. Its an early release, so any feedback is appreciated. Read more about it here: https://medium.com/@yvoschaap/st...

I really dig this. The idea of using common mapping patterns to visualize dev tools is genius. To give feedback: The first important gap would be explaining the diagrams. Just an intro to trough of disillusionment and whatever version of the diffusions of innovations you're using would be awesome 👌. Next is clarity on whether the state of tools is your personal opinion or based on external data (and how dynamic the content is). Lastly, a feature request: I'd love to see Wardley Maps of the state of dev around cloud computing and similar. More on that here: http://blog.gardeviance.org/2015...

@mjbrender I agree on your points. Only recently I learned about https://www.thoughtworks.com/radar which is maybe initially easier to comprehend. I could adopt some of that. I would love to see the charts evolve into a community/expert effort, with arguments on why what is where. (wiki?) Wardley also looks interesting, and might be useful to adopt.

@yvoschaap I dig the community angle - something where each chart has a discussion thread associated with it. Could wrap that up into a GH repo with some markdown pretty easily. Cool. Glad you like the maps too!

Looks good! 🎉 Can you elaborate on what the different XY-axes represent? I found it quite difficult to make sense of the diagrams before reading your medium post. (Maybe add an explanation for "Expectations" and add a label for the time axis.) Great stuff! 🚀

Pretty cool. You should probably open up in some way to allow others to edit.

Pretty interesting. Good work on the research!
