According to one of the surveys, around 5038 apps are released on the App Store, and Google Play daily. That puts tremendous pressure on mobile app developers to launch mobile apps quickly before anybody else releases it. Also, it should be responsive, bug-free, and user-friendly. Facebook sensed this early and brought an ingenious solution in the form of React Native.   React Native is a JavaScript framework to build mobile applications based on Facebook’s JavaScript library React.js.     ( Image source: ITFIRMS)   Remember, there is a slight difference between React.js and React Native app. React.js is an open-source javascript library for building fast and interactive user interface components. While React Native is a framework used to build native applications, as it compiles to React Native components.   React Native framework was initially designed only for developing mobile applications but later customized by contributors to use it for building desktop apps as well. React Native increase mobile app development speed by 30-40%.   If your requirement revolves around building interactive web interfaces, go for ReactJS, and if it is around building cross-platform native apps, then React Native is the right choice.     Let's see some more details on React Native characteristics.     (Image source: Codeburst.io)   Here are some reasons why React Native is the future of mobile application,     Unlike Cordova, PhoneGap, and other cross-platform frameworks that render code via WebView, React Native renders certain code components with native API’s.   Common logic layer can be re-used, therefore reducing the time and cost behind coding.   There is no need to develop an app twice for different platforms(Android/ iOS).   Developers can push the updates to the user’s phone without having to go through the app store update cycle.   It is easy to implement.

If your requirement revolves around building interactive web interfaces, go for ReactJS, and if it is around building cross-platform native apps, then React Native is the right choice.    

Let's see some more details on React Native characteristics.  

 

(Image source: Codeburst.io)  

Here are some reasons why React Native is the future of mobile application,    

  1. Unlike Cordova, PhoneGap, and other cross-platform frameworks that render code via WebView, React Native renders certain code components with native API’s.
      
  2. Common logic layer can be re-used, therefore reducing the time and cost behind coding.
      
  3. There is no need to develop an app twice for different platforms(Android/ iOS).
      
  4. Developers can push the updates to the user’s phone without having to go through the app store update cycle.
      
  5. It is easy to implement. Developers can easily learn and deploy react code if they have knowledge of Javascript.
      
  6. It helps developers to reduce the efforts required to create new logics, integrating different APIs for two different platforms.
      
  7. Developers can optimize the efficiency of an app by combining components of Objective-C, Java, or Swift with React Native code.
      
  8. It has got shorter development cycles. “Hot Reload” feature allows the developer to keep the app running while implementing new versions and tweaking the UI.
      
  9. React Native along with Javascript, runs even the complex app smoothly. However, it also gives the developers an option to write code in native languages when required. It’s easy to switch to Swift (Java).
      
  10. React Native developers can use many developer tools present in React JS.
      
  11. It has over 1.6k contributors who have committed code to this framework’s codebase.
       

Here are few updates of React Native roadmap in 2019    

  • Fabric: UI-layer re-architecture, makes all UI operations expose directly to JavaScript using JSI interface
  • TurboModules: It allows JS code to load each module when it’s really needed (currently they’re initialized even when they’re not used)
  • CodeGen: a tool that automates the compatibility between JS and native side
       

Though it is facing stiff competition from Google flutter, there is a lot of hope from React Native, especially with their updates mentioned above.  

The future of the framework looks all shiny, as such, the software engineer from Facebook in his interview predicts I believe that the web, mobile and developing UI on other platforms will converge, and "react" will be one design pattern that people will use to build applications.”

In the corporate world, the successful implementation of voice recognition tools is closely connected with SEO. Many web developers design their SEO campaigns based on voice queries. It is critical to cover all the primary phrases used by potential clients.

Prediction: AI will enter all industries and become an indispensable part of our lives soon.

2. Interactivity

With websites getting launched every other day in the market, it has become challenging to impress your target audience and get their attention. An excellent way to outpace your competition is to make your website interactive and user-friendly. It is equally crucial to track and satisfy your user’s requirements, so they enjoy using your services.

Today’s web developers pay attention to minimizing the number of actions required to find information or goods. Some platforms have taken technology to the next level and invite customers to personalize their purchases. These websites enable users to upload a photo and try on accessories or make-up, build a 3D model of their dream home, assemble a car from different spare parts, and multiple other tasks that customize their shopping experience. Hence, Interactivity plans a vital role in website development.

Prediction: Throughout the approaching decade, web developers will strive to supplement their products with interactive features and make the navigation of online platforms more responsive and user-friendly.

3. Internet of Things

IoT has long been a bold but distant concept that is, at last, claiming its place in the market. IoT technologies enable us to gather and store the data in the webspace. This technology helps the users retain less information in our heads so we can use real-life resources more efficiently. In many ways, IoT was made possible because of the cloud connectivity. One of the most famous examples of IoT is a fitness tracker, with the help of which users can scan their owner’s physical activities, store and process data on health optimization platforms, and offer recommendations for improving workouts. Some devices can even diagnose a user’s current state of health and reveal illnesses based on biometric data.

Prediction: IoT will continue to develop and reach its full potential in 2025-2030.

4. The Expansion Of Python

All the latest technologies are based on flexible, expandable, and resilient programming languages such as Python. Even though it emerged in 1991, it continues to make a way in our lives even today, with more exciting applications being invented every year. Python’s popularity in the IT sector and is adopted by Google, Facebook, NASA, Youtube, and various other international firms. Python programming language offers an excellent platform for AI, API integration, ML, and several other high-tech trends.

Prediction: By 2020, Python will attain the position of leading programming language.

5. Self-Developed Websites

Nowadays, tools like WordPress and Dreamweaver have efficiently simplified website development processes. Web developers continue to invent new personalized CMS programs that enable retailers to design their online stores without writing code. Advancements in software development will minimize the requirement of front-end developers. The expert technicians in this niche will perform the customized task, and shift to the back-end, consulting, and service platforms.

Prediction: Manual front-end coding does not consist of a long life cycle. Corporate experts will develop almost all site elements without assistance and make well-informed decisions without the experience holders.

The above-mentioned technological advancements will lead to the future of web development.

The foundation of future tech innovation can be traced back to the ’90s with the “dot.com” revolution. It was around the same time the desktop PCs were becoming the norm in offices, and floppies were getting comfy in the file racks. The transformations were remarkable enough to mark their future possibilities. It was clear, tech-geeks were up for something bigger.    However, no one had thought that the password used for unlocking the personal e-mails will someday unlock the payment gateway for online trading. All the credit goes to the internet, who broke the barriers for free trade and served the role of trade facilitator across the countries. With that, the digital world dished out some amazing online services like Amazon, E-bay, Etsy, and so on.    But that was not the end; Satoshi Nakamoto had added one more feather to the digital revolution by re-defining the “Blockchain” technology. The technology can keep the traditional online payment methods at bay, as it is completely decentralized.     However, beyond the secure payment, the Blockchain enthusiast wants to board the technology for a myriad of other business processes. Mentioning a few of them below, they believe the true potential of Blockchain is yet to be discovered.    Here are some future predictions for Blockchain Technology   Replace gold reserves in Bank  A new report by Germany’s largest lender, Deutsche Bank, suggests that Blockchain-powered digital currencies could replace cash payments within the next decade. It means Blockchain is truly going to practice the postulate of “paperless money.”   That drives the whole conversation towards the Bank’s gold reserves. For any bank, the Gold reserve is their strength, based on which they decide the criteria to lend the loan. It also has great value from the perspective of the nation’s economy.    When any Nation hits with the economic crisis, they sell out Gold to International Monetary Fund (IMF) to bring more cash or sell them to pay the debt to other countries. The problem starts when their bank gold reserves held in foreign banks can’t be moved during the financial crisis. The result of which there could be no cash to circulate into the public. Bank customers envisage this as a breach of trust and seek a better alternative to get full control of their money.    Cryptocurrency like Bitcoin can give them full control over their money, and in the future, it can replace the bank’s gold reserve. The digital asset management firm “Blocktown Capital” has suggested the total amount of BTC that countries have to accumulate if Bitcoin were to replace the current gold reserves.       India: 66,481 BTC    USA: 913,388 BTC    Germani: 378,416 BTC    Russia: 232,033 BTC    China: 206,923 BTC    Japan: 85,931 BTC    UK: 34,846 BTC       ( Image source: bitcoininsider.org)    Secure IoT devices   IoT devices include wireless sensors, actuators, software, and computer devices. For example, IoT systems in your home identify the gas leakage and send you an alert message on the phone.    The data in an IoT get saved in the cloud storage, and the Internet connects all the devices. It means your IoT device is vulnerable to hackers. With Blockchain, this is not possible as hackers cannot alter the data.    Replace dollar for International trade   The global trade around the world is done through U.S Dollars. Two-thirds of all emerging market external debt, global equities, and government foreign exchange reserves are denominated in dollars. Any fluctuation in dollar values has an immense effect on the global stock exchange. It made other countries dependent on dollar value.     Whenever these countries smell financial crises or inflation they hoard more dollars to escape from it. Keeping stock of dollars can hurt the overall global economy. To eliminate the dollar dependency factor, some see cryptocurrencies (like Blockchain) as a good alternative. Some trade-analyst believes the dollar’s death will be on the Blockchain.    Self-sovereign identify platform   As per one of the reports, in the developing world, around 1.5 billion people lack proof of identity, including more than 65 million refugees. Either it is due to improper storage, or they lost their data. Blockchain-based identity systems can solve these problems. These systems will serve a single source of verification for individuals’ identities and assets. It reduces the risk of security breaches and records manipulation.    Supply Chain   One of the key areas where Blockchain has more value is “ Supply Chain.” In the supply-chain industry, there is no organized working system they regularly battle with inefficiencies, errors, and fraud.       Blockchain allows a significant reduction of bureaucracy and paperwork in supply chains    It enables easy record-keeping and tracking of the product information    There is more transparency and eliminates frauds in the supply chain    Blockchain can speed up administrative processes and reduce the overall cost    Reduces human error       Asset Ownership   There are numerous cases where landowners have to knock the court’s door to claim their proprietorship either due to illegal encroachment or tampering of land registry. With Blockchain, this could be reduced. In the future, all assets, including land, will be recorded on a transparent, tamper-free distributed ledger open for the public to see. It means no one can falsely claim the occupancy.    Elections on Blockchain   A Blockchain-based voting application can eliminate all voting-related discrepancies. The belief that voting cannot be done online in a secure way is now challenged. In fact, it would be the most secure way of voting, because once the vote is recorded, it would be there permanently on the Blockchain. No tampering or dummy voters can exist. Startup companies like “BitCongress” and “FollowMyVote” are already engaged in developing a Voting System.    The Blockchain technology was questioned for its viability in the mainstream.

Here are some future predictions for Blockchain Technology  

Replace gold reserves in Bank 

A new report by Germany’s largest lender, Deutsche Bank, suggests that Blockchain-powered digital currencies could replace cash payments within the next decade. It means Blockchain is truly going to practice the postulate of “paperless money.”  

That drives the whole conversation towards the Bank’s gold reserves. For any bank, the Gold reserve is their strength, based on which they decide the criteria to lend the loan. It also has great value from the perspective of the nation’s economy.   

When any Nation hits with the economic crisis, they sell out Gold to International Monetary Fund (IMF) to bring more cash or sell them to pay the debt to other countries. The problem starts when their bank gold reserves held in foreign banks can’t be moved during the financial crisis. The result of which there could be no cash to circulate into the public.

I would have phrased the question better. Will try to provide short answers to all questions part by part from my perspective:Where is BI going? Short answer: BI is going places, and gong there fast. In my 2010 BI model, we valued the BI software market at about $7.2 billion, growing at a global rate of 6.5% on an average, which is significant compared to more established enterprise technologies. I expect BI to increasingly make an entry into iel smith emerging markets, especially China, India, and Latin America. @Unnati Chauhan BI is going to every single enterprise application and delivering more value than the sum of parts. With Ent. Search, it is helping answer casual user queries. With BPM, it is providing perspective to CEP. What are the biggest problems with the existing established players, and how are startups trying to disrupt them?As with all establishments, the problems are of sustainable growth, keeping BI relevant to the needs of a changing demographic of end-users, being on the forefront of business issues, and noticing trends. Some of the common issues are:    Dealing with semi-structured data, and how to include the same in analysis  How to best use user-generated social content  How to deal with the sheer growth in the volume of enterprise and social data  How to better integrate into other information management technologies and enterprise applications  How to come as close to real-time (right-time, if you will) as required  How to deal with Big Data   This is obviously not an exhaustive list.Startups: One very successful startup that came into prominence in the last few years is Qliktech, which defined a radical approach to data analysis doing away with OLAP cubes. Some other companies are trying to come up with newer ways of data visualization. Some such as Jasper and Pentaho are open-source representations of BI. Newer players have BIRT as a starting point, so building a solution becomes less cumbersome. Still others are innovating with in-memory, in-database, MPP driven architectures and analytical databases.

What are the biggest problems with the existing established players, and how are startups trying to disrupt them?
As with all establishments, the problems are of sustainable growth, keeping BI relevant to the needs of a changing demographic of end-users, being on the forefront of business issues, and noticing trends. Some of the common issues are:  

  1.  Dealing with semi-structured data, and how to include the same in analysis 
  2. How to best use user-generated social content 
  3. How to deal with the sheer growth in the volume of enterprise and social data 
  4. How to better integrate into other information management technologies and enterprise applications 
  5. How to come as close to real-time (right-time, if you will) as required 
  6. How to deal with Big Data  

This is obviously not an exhaustive list.

Startups: One very successful startup that came into prominence in the last few years is Qliktech, which defined a radical approach to data analysis doing away with OLAP cubes. Some other companies are trying to come up with newer ways of data visualization. Some such as Jasper and Pentaho are open-source representations of BI.

The innate ability of software developers to craft their imagination into a ground-breaking product is impressive. It has influenced the lives of many on this planet. It would be interesting to know what’s next on their radar that could change the world progressively.  The blockchain is the latest thing to happen after Big data, cloud computing, autonomous vehicle, and IoT cemented their position in the IT realm.  Time and again, all these discoveries have been put through the litmus test and have come out successfully. The same is expected for blockchain, but this time the creator itself is the challenger asking, “What is the future of blockchain technology for a developer?”  The “decentralize” property of blockchain has kept it going strong so far, and software developers are optimistic that their future will have far brighter strokes on the Blockchain canvas.  Let’s see what aspects of blockchain make their belief so strong.  1) Protects against data theft  During software development, many of the data provided by the client are confidential. A breach in their data could leave them vulnerable. With blockchain technology, the client’s data can be securely stored, and the risk of data theft is reduced remarkably. It also reduces a lot of work for software developers that follow strict guidelines and processes to ensure everything is performed in a secure environment.  2) Integration of Devops Tools  DevOps is a set of software development practices that combine the development (dev) and operations (ops) parts of the software lifecycle. Devops concept came into existence for quicker development of software products. By integrating devops tools to the blockchain, the devops tools can further increase the speed of the software development, while blockchain can add more transparency to the development process. The blockchain network can be even used to buy devops tools through tokens.  3) Inbuilt software testing tools  Software testing tools are one of the expensive assets for the software industry. The software industry sees a great advantage of using blockchain, not just for software development but also for testing. Blockchain platform like Corda provides built-in testing tools to help the software testers. It does not only save cost and removes the dependency from third-party tools but also enhances the quick release of the software product.  4) No single point of failure  To make your website go live, you need to choose a hosting service. With blockchain, there will be no intermediary between your website and consumers. Everything is managed through blockchain, and issues related to hosting are resolved by itself. Unlike traditional web-app, your backend is supported by many servers; it means whenever there is a failure of a single node, it will be quickly replaced by others in the network. With blockchain, there will be no interruption while hosting the website.  5) Mobile app approval by Appstore  Currently, there are two Appstore which approves mobile apps for sale on their stores - Google’s play store and Apple store. The approval system is considered quite arbitrary and not convincing to the app developer. By using the blockchain model, the app approval process would become fair and better, as it would be performed through a transparent developer reputation system.  6) Secure your code  Writing, editing, and securing the software code is a cumbersome job. But if you have distributed databases like Blockchain, you can easily manage your code. In case you want to share the software code with someone else, then you can make it private and share it with whoever you want to edit it from or make changes.  7) Easy detection of bugs or loopholes  Since the software development project on the blockchain can be made open-source, the global developer community has their back. The bug or loopholes in the code is identified and fixed quickly.  Final Thoughts,  Industries like real estate, banking, education, security, healthcare, supply chain have started applying blockchain technology into their business. It means the developer’s scope in dapp development has widened.  Since the technology is replacing each other as quickly as the rippled waves, it is quite obvious the app developers have to keep a tap on its development skills and some of the technologies shaping the blockchain like Geth, Solidity, Solium, Solc, Truffle Framework, and Remix IDE.  However, being at the forefront of blockchain technology, the expert believes there is still room for improvement in the technology before the software programmers completely switch to the blockchain development environment.

Devops concept came into existence for quicker development of software products. By integrating devops tools to the blockchain, the devops tools can further increase the speed of the software development, while blockchain can add more transparency to the development process. The blockchain network can be even used to buy devops tools through tokens.  3) Inbuilt software testing tools  Software testing tools are one of the expensive assets for the software industry. The software industry sees a great advantage of using blockchain, not just for software development but also for testing. Blockchain platform like Corda provides built-in testing tools to help the software testers. It does not only save cost and removes the dependency from third-party tools but also enhances the quick release of the software product.  4) No single point of failure  To make your website go live, you need to choose a hosting service. With blockchain, there will be no intermediary between your website and consumers. Everything is managed through blockchain, and issues related to hosting are resolved by itself. Unlike traditional web-app, your backend is supported by many servers; it means whenever there is a failure of a single node, it will be quickly replaced by others in the network. With blockchain, there will be no interruption while hosting the website.  5) Mobile app approval by Appstore  Currently, there are two Appstore which approves mobile apps for sale on their stores - Google’s play store and Apple store. The approval system is considered quite arbitrary and not convincing to the app developer. By using the blockchain model, the app approval process would become fair and better, as it would be performed through a transparent developer reputation system.  6) Secure your code  Writing, editing, and securing the software code is a cumbersome job. But if you have distributed databases like Blockchain, you can easily manage your code. In case you want to share the software code with someone else, then you can make it private and share it with whoever you want to edit it from or make changes.  7) Easy detection of bugs or loopholes  Since the software development project on the blockchain can be made open-source, the global developer community has their back. The bug or loopholes in the code is identified and fixed quickly.  Final Thoughts,  Industries like real estate, banking, education, security, healthcare, supply chain have started applying blockchain technology into their business.

The innate ability of software developers to craft their imagination into a ground-breaking product is impressive. It has influenced the lives of many on this planet. It would be interesting to know what’s next on their radar that could change the world progressively. 

The blockchain is the latest thing to happen after Big data, cloud computing, autonomous vehicle, and IoT cemented their position in the IT realm.

Time and again, all these discoveries have been put through the litmus test and have come out successfully. The same is expected for blockchain, but this time the creator itself is the challenger asking, “What is the future of blockchain technology for a developer?” 

The “decentralize” property of blockchain has kept it going strong so far, and software developers are optimistic that their future will have far brighter strokes on the Blockchain canvas. 

Let’s see what aspects of blockchain make their belief so strong. 

1) Protects against data theft 

During software development, many of the data provided by the client are confidential. A breach in their data could leave them vulnerable. With blockchain technology, the client’s data can be securely stored, and the risk of data theft is reduced remarkably. It also reduces a lot of work for software developers that follow strict guidelines and processes to ensure everything is performed in a secure environment. 

2) Integration of Devops Tools 

DevOps is a set of software development practices that combine the development (dev) and operations (ops) parts of the software lifecycle. Devops concept came into existence for quicker development of software products. By integrating devops tools to the blockchain, the devops tools can further increase the speed of the software development, while blockchain can add more transparency to the development process.
