Top Five Developer Trends – 2016

1. Containers Still Will Rule the World

Container is the future to programming. 2016 will see tools such as Docker develop, gain a lot of security features and add some governance that will make it difficult for anybody to pull down any container depending on pnwd.com. Solaris zones for Linux with a packaging format will be one brilliant idea too, just add dependencies, and you are good to go.

2. Java Dominance as a Language will Decline Gradually

Take it or leave it, java dominance as a language is in a gradual decline in 2016 for quite a number of reasons. For instance, take a look at the job postings on Sparks or Node.js or MongoDB. Compare these jobs to those of java, which ones are better paying? Which jobs are about new developments and won’t put you in a low-cost labour? Java language does not answer to any of these questions in 2016, at least this you should know.

Another reason that also explains this trend is the fact that there is no new stuff being written in java anymore. This fact has seen Oracle disassociating its self with java. Therefore with this trend, it is only prudent that you learn some new language in 2016.

3. The Dell/EMC Merger Will not Work out

The big merger by Dell and its transitioning from a hardware company to a cloud company is one of the developer trends that are heading to the dark. As much as this is a big merger and one that should shape the future of the IT industry the strategy was one that clearly wasn’t well thought out by Dell. As opposed to investing grossly in a storage company like EMC and server business, it should have invested short term on itself and used this relationship to push their cloud.

4. NoSQL Databases will Take Hold

NoSQL is a brand you should definitely look out for in 2016. With its ability to cope and perform well under increased pressure and workload, this is one database you need to focus on if you want to perform critical operations in 2016. One of the NoSQL to count on is the Spark. With Cloudera fully supporting it, be sure to watch on the space with regards to its cutting edge features it promises.

5. Real-Time Everything

Forget about real-time analytics, real-time everything is the real thing. This trend will start earnest in 2016 and shape up in the years to come. It will not only focus around your business but also on every single aspect of your business, that is, the relationship with your customers and suppliers and cut across all sectors of the economy from retail to finance to manufacturing. Such trend will not only affect technology but also cause shift on how we fundamentally do business.
