Predictions 2018: New technologies propel software development
These days every company is in the software business. Fast, iterative delivery of high-quality software means better customer engagement and higher satisfaction, so an effective development organization is more important than ever.
But in 2018 software development leaders will face new opportunities and challenges as software technologies and platforms pivot into new areas where traditional skills, programming metaphors, and delivery processes no longer apply.
With our 2018 predictions published today, here’s a sneak peek into what we see ahead for development leaders:

It should be fun!
