We are now in the middle of our current year, it is quite apparent that the trends in software development have also been continuously evolving. This has been true even for the past years. As for software developers, it is best that you keep track of these ongoing changes and trends involved in the software development industry.
Furthermore, our fast-paced world has been continually shaping and reshaping not just software development but also the IT industry in general.
To help you be updated on the ever-growing software technologies, we have listed below the current trends that are happening in software development:
3 Software Development Trends as of 2019
Internet of Things (IoT)
IoT allows devices to be connected to the internet. Both the consumer and industrial domains have taken full advantage of this trend in software technology. In terms of security and consumer experience, IoT is perceived to be of high demand.
Over 127 devices are being added to the internet every second. Furthermore, as predicted in 2020, over 90% of automobiles will also be IoT enabled. While as of 2018, there were about 23.14 billion devices that were IoT enabled. Our current year is estimated to reach over 26.66 billion.
The quality of codes has become one of the primary focus when it comes to software development. The best codes are done depending on how strong is the development strategy of each company. Furthermore, it will also depend on the type of task for each software development to determine the code quality and the structure. These are all important to deliver the best possible outcomes.
Low Code Development
Low code platforms help non-technical developers not to create codes and at the same time give support to professional developers. These low code platforms allow developers with different levels of experiences to create applications for the web and mobile by making use of drag-and-drop components and model-driven logic through a graphic user interface.
