Software development is competitive, and as more companies begin exploring the potential of new technologies, it pays to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to knowing the types of applications that are in demand.

Fortunately, developers are pretty on the pulse when it comes to knowing the direction in which tech is headed – it's part of their job, after all – and so knowing what developers are researching can be a good indicator of what's hot and what's not: handy if you're a budding coder looking to bring your knowledge up-to-speed.

Helpfully, SlashData's 2022 State of the Developer Survey offers some insights into what is currently commanding the attention of the world's software developers. According to its survey of 20,000+ coders, blockchain applications, cryptocurrencies, and NFTs have the highest share of developers learning about them.

SEE: Developers are burned out. Here's what they're doing to tackle it

Just over a third (34%) of developers surveyed said they were learning about cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin – hardly surprising, as the adoption of digital currencies continues to grow worldwide. Sixteen percent (16%) said they were actively working on crypto-related projects.

The money-making potential of NFTs (non-fungible tokens), another "crypto-adjacent' technology, has also not gone unnoticed by developers: 11% of them are currently working on the technology, with SlashData calling it "a potentially profitable niche for those who do get involved." Nearly a third (32%) of the developers surveyed by SlashData said they are brushing up on their NFT knowledge.

Why Big Data is the Most Revolutionary Development in Technology

The term ‘Big Data’ is the talk of both business and tech world today. Companies across sectors are slowly realising the value of data they have stored so far. The new phrase ‘Data is an asset’ is sealing the commercial market.

In a nutshell, big data market is rapidly undergoing the contortions that define market maturity, namely consolidation. There is a flood of big data analytics companies sprouting during this period. Even leaders emerge with the data analytics market, which is entering its second decade. However, big data analytics has matured differently than most technologies.

The footprint of data is traced back to centuries. Some even say that data came with the existence of mathematics. Ultimately, the first official data-processing machine appeared in 1943. It was developed by the British to decipher Nazi codes during World War II. Almost ten years later, the importance of big data prompted the formal creation of the United States’ National Security Agency (NSA) where staffs were assigned the task of decrypting messages intercepted during the Cold War. As computers of the time started evolving, big data gained more traction among tech users. Later in 2005, Roger Mougalas from O’Reilly Media coined the term ‘Big Data’ for the first time. Since then, game-changers like IBM, Microsoft, HP and Oracle took the head-on challenge of developing the technology and business revenues using big data.

Speed and flexibility are what big data brings to the table. If we look back at the past years when business functioned without data, all they did was gather information. Companies were unaware of the value they held at their hands. But today, business runs with the help of big data as it can be used to predict analysis and identify insights for immediate decisions. Big data analytics has given organisations the luxury to work faster and stay agile which gives them a competitive edge they didn’t have before.

How long does it take to develop/build an app?

With more of us using smartphones, the popularity of mobile applications has exploded. In the digital era, the number of people looking for products and services online is growing rapidly. Smartphone owners look for mobile applications that give them quick access to companies’ products and services. As a result, mobile apps provide customers with a lot of benefits in just one device.

Likewise, companies use mobile apps to increase customer loyalty and improve their services. Mobile Developers are in high demand as companies use apps not only to create brand awareness but also to gather information. For that reason, mobile apps are used as tools to collect valuable data from customers to help companies improve their offer.

There are many types of mobile applications, each with its own advantages. For example, native apps perform better, while web apps don’t need to be customized for the platform or operating system (OS). Likewise, hybrid apps provide users with comfortable user experience. However, you may be wondering how long it takes to develop an app.

To give you an idea of how long the app development process takes, here’s a short guide.

App Idea & Research

app-idea-research

_Average time spent: two to five weeks _

This is the initial stage and a crucial step in setting the project in the right direction. In this stage, you brainstorm ideas and select the best one. Apart from that, you’ll need to do some research to see if your idea is viable. Remember that coming up with an idea is easy; the hard part is to make it a reality.

All your ideas may seem viable, but you still have to run some tests to keep it as real as possible. For that reason, when Web Developers are building a web app, they analyze the available ideas to see which one is the best match for the targeted audience.

Targeting the right audience is crucial when you are developing an app. It saves time when shaping the app in the right direction as you have a clear set of objectives. Likewise, analyzing how the app affects the market is essential. During the research process, App Developers must gather information about potential competitors and threats. This helps the app owners develop strategies to tackle difficulties that come up after the launch.

The research process can take several weeks, but it determines how successful your app can be. For that reason, you must take your time to know all the weaknesses and strengths of the competitors, possible app strategies, and targeted audience.

The outcomes of this stage are app prototypes and the minimum feasible product.

Introduction to Big Data

In the digital era, businesses generate and encounter large quantities of data on an everyday basis. “Big Data” is essentially a term used to describe this massive collection of data that exponentially increases with time. It is now imperative for companies to adopt smart data management systems if they want to extract relevant information from the vast and diverse stockpile.

According to Gartner, Big Data has the following characteristics:

  • It is high-volume and high-velocity.
  • Contains a huge variety of information assets.
  • Requires cost-effective and innovative forms of processing.
  • Enhances decision making in organisations.

Today, we are witnessing a new crop of big data companies that are utilising emerging technologies like Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) to move beyond the conventional tools of management. Let us understand their reasons for doing so.
