Programming trends are important for developers to understand, as doing so helps them prepare for the opportunities that quantum computing, big data, and mixed reality might bring to all computing sectors, including commercial computing.
This year takes us one step closer to a future articulated in classic and influential science fiction (such as the Jetsons). Artificial intelligence, virtual reality and quantum computing teeter on the brink of mainstream. As a coding instructor and curriculum designer, I spend a lot of time thinking about where the tech industry is headed, to prepare my students for that new world.
I recently wrote about four of these trends every developer should expect and understand, which you can check out over on InformationWeek’s website.
