The "dice test" is process of querying for job postings on related to a new/emerging technology, with the theory being that if there are a significant number of job postings related to the new technology, it is a relevant/in demand technology worthy of learning and eventually integrating into new software projects. The "dice test" is used by Information Technology and Computer/Software Engineering Professionals to filter out the vast array of software packages/frameworks created that are never widely adopted, preventing the software developer from investing in a technology platform that will eventually die (due to a lack of community/support).
I ran a dice test on jQuery, and there are over 5000 jobs: that's a hot technology we need to implement on our websites.
