We live in the world of technology, and technology keeps on changing. Hence the puzzle about which emerging technologies interest developers the most has become a primary question, since each technology demand that kind of a developer thrust as well, in order to make it conventional.
As per the survey conducted by the SlashData’s State of the Developer Nation, which consisted of 19,000 developers in 155 countries, were asked about which emerging technologies interests them the most. To which, they responded regarding the technology that they were working on, learning about, or were interested in- Robotics, mini apps, and the computer vision- which is nothing but an important component in the self-driving cars, drones, and of course other technologies.
While for some of them, crypto currencies block chain applications, drones, biometrics for ID verification, quantum computing, and 5G were the engaging technologies. Nevertheless, most of the developers were mesmerized with the range of technologies; however, very few of them have actually starting adopting them into the live projects, since all the technologies have their own barriers. Most of them believed that due to the advancement in technology, bringing the quantum to convention will take years, but the social and the cultural factors can still bring the momentum required.
Moreover, a recent statistics of data from the Burning Glass, which collects information and analyzes millions of the top job search site and IT staffing companies in USA from across the country, states that only a small percentage of technologist jobs require the skills related to block chain, despite of its popularity of Bitcoin and also the cryptocurrencies.
This is certainly going to change, though. LinkedIn’s emerging jobs report, issued in the year December 2020, also mentioned that the demand for robotics and artificial intelligence specialists is going to increase tremendously over the next coming years. It’s also equally important to analyze how the market for mini apps, drones, and quite a few other emerging technologies have grown by the end of the decade, especially if a business’s comes up with a an exciting consumer or business application. In the world of technology, it will always pay to stay interested in upcoming technologies.
New and the evolving technologies are going to rapidly reshape how we work around with the creative opportunities that are in store for the developers who are always willing to pivot test first and then adopt new skills, and are ready to deploy new technology, thereby welcoming the change management. There are these 11 tech trends considering a decade trend, and experts say that they are very likely to disrupt the current IT procedure, and create new demand for engineers with a sharp eye on the coming future.
Lastly, AI is remains the most frequently used breakthrough technology of the decade, it is one of the most important trend of the year 2017 and is visualised to remain for the years ahead of the disruptive technologies.
Maarten Ectors of Canonical listed down a dozen of disparate technologies which, when joined, are somewhere down the line much more than the sum of all their parts, which includes cloud, mobile, IoT, artificial intelligence, blockchain, augmented reality, voice interfaces, software-defined radio, robotics, edge computing, and autonomous driving.
Rocket Software’s Spedding mentioned that the isolated technologies are soon to be converging partly because there is a need for businesses to dig out of their own data and the information, for example, analyzing website traffic, etc.
Moreover, he also says that the increasing proliferation of the new data sources, like IoT and we will be seeing the challenges just to keep ourselves up with the volume of information that is made available to support the business decision-making process.
Spedding sees these opportunities for a merging of the cognitive technology, bots, and also the machine language. The digital natives for this new generation will speed up the adoption of technologies, as they expect ease of use, interfaces (UI) inspired for gaming and also the everyday exposure to the augmented and the virtual reality.
