jQuery, AngularJS
This list looks like it could have been written in 2010 (or possibly even 2000).  It completely skips over the #1 web development language/framework/library, jQuery.  More recently, AngularJS (1.x, aka Angular in the 2.0 version) is becoming a language/framework/library which cannot be ignored by any serious web developer.  If you really want to group both those technologies in with JavaScript, at least mention them in the description!

ASP.NET, ASP.NET Core
A quick Google search will quickly verify that the correct capitalization is, and always has been, ASP.NET (and now ASP.NET Core).

And also Perl looks like pretty outdated, there is no need to learn it now.

Java's "Bare Metal" Weakness
I've heard folks criticize Java because it's too "bare metal" -- preferring things like Node.js where devs practice the freedom they claim Javascript offers over Java.

Now it's being criticized because it's not close enough to the "bare metal"?  While device drivers and operating systems are not for Java, it's difficult to read that it's not "bare metal" enough for web applications.  A lot of web servers, web frameworks and various application containers are written in Java.  On top of those frameworks, developers create business functionatlity.  What's not "bare metal" enough about that?

Not surprised
4-10 are used to create 1-3. The first three slides should have been either omitted or be the only slides depending on how you look at it.

10 Web Apps Languages
Very useful as I still think in terms of 001100111010110011010  etc or assembler. I'll bet most CIOs don't know these languages exist. Reference articles like this are always more useful than illustrated flannel skirting round a subject without gripping it.
