Yes, and the proof is happening right in front of you every single day.
Here’s what a ton of people will do today:
Wake up to an alarm set on Amazon Alexa.
Get a ride to work with Uber.
Message their team through Slack.
Buy coffee and pay for it using Apple Pay.
Organize a to-do list on Trello.
Order lunch through Foodler.
Chat with remote employees via Google Hangouts.
Finally book their vacation through Kayak and Airbnb.
Take an Uber back home.
Order dinner through Foodler.
Load up Netflix and watch TV on demand before heading to bed.
10 years ago, you have performed each of those tasks in a completely different way (or you couldn’t perform them at all).
Software seriously IS eating the world really quickly.
This is great news for developers.
Developers are the people who are capable of building stuff for a world that is becoming increasingly more reliant on technology. That’s why the demand for developers is only going to increase more and more over the next 10 years.
The data backs this up. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, software developer jobs are expected to grow 17% from 2014 till 2024. They categorize this growth as “much faster” than the average rate among other professions.
It’s not just Facebook, Google, and Uber that need developers. Almost every single industry is becoming dependent on people who know how to write code:
- Business technology companies, like 37 Signals, Mailchimp, and Salesforce are willing to pay a lot of money for developers who can solve their core business problems.
- Ad tech companies rely on developers to build their platforms.
- Payments companies, like Apple, PayPal, Square, and LevelUp need developers to help them gain ground in the payments space.
- Media companies, like Huffington Post and Upworthy, need developers to build the custom tech stacks that allow them to publish large amounts of content at scale.
- Academia - schools like Harvard hire developers to build libraries of digital knowledge.
- Embedded device companies, like Fitbit and Apple, need developers to write the software for all of their connected devices.
- Automotive companies, like Ford, have a ton of software developer positions posted on their site, especially with the race toward autonomous cars.
This is by no means an exhaustive list. Insurance companies, mortgage brokers, government regulation industries, the military, and many more are actively seeking out developers and will continue to do so moving forward.
The world’s growing reliance on technology to get things done is making developers more important than ever.
And because technology is only going to change more and more over the next 10 years, there has never been a better time to be a developer.

Anticipating tech’s future is nearly impossible, much less the skills and tools that will be relevant given the impact of innovations to come.
If you’re wondering where to place your next development bet, looking five years out can seem like mere guesswork.
Here I'd gathered a list of projections for programming’s future based on today’s most intriguing evolutions in tech. Not all are guaranteed to come true; not all are even guaranteed to be new. Many are trends that started unfolding several years ago.
- REST is an architecture style for designing networked applications.
- It relies on a stateless, client-server, cacheable communications protocol -- and in virtually all cases, the HTTP protocol is used.
Video kills the HTML star:
Once upon a time, we surfed the Web, jumping from website to website, grazing on text, and clicking through hyperlinks whenever we wanted to learn more.
- The death of Flash and the ascendance of HTML5 open up the possibilities to merge video clips with HTML.
Bigger, better databases will dominate:
- Sure the search engines indexed the Web, but now there are databases indexing the world itself, thanks to increasing demand from next-generation location-aware apps and autonomous cars.
- We’ll write our code in any of a dozen dialects and the transcoding robots will turn it into something that the browser or Node.js understands.
PHP will battle back against Node.js:
- The newest versions of just-in-time tools like PHP 7 and the HipHop Virtual Machine are offering dramatically faster performance.
- Because of this, codebases such as WordPress or Drupal are running 30, 40, 50, or even 100 percent faster.
- These old platforms will have new life after all.
J'espère que ça a aidé.
