What does the future of software developers look like? The COVID-19 pandemic has reshaped the technology industry in ways we are still unable to fathom. As the world prepares for a massive rebound in the leading economies, acquiring a truly global working culture will become essential to be able to secure work. You might remember we shared our thoughts on the future of work in our previous post, “The Future of Work: To 10 Predictions for 2021.”
A growing trend of multi-skilled software developers and engineering professionals who can quickly and seamlessly adapt to unforeseen changes, industry shifts and volatile market conditions will be possibly the most valued trait in our tech teams of 2021. Based on what we’re seeing in the industry, as well as within our own ecosystem, we wanted to share a few thoughts to help software developers and other technologists uplevel their capabilities so that their skills are in high demand leading into the new year.
Specialized Tech Skills for 2021
Software developers who wish to stay ahead of the curve in tech should be preparing themselves for developing a wide range of specialized skills to face a game-changing year.
If you’re interested in knowing what industries will thrive during 2021**, technology and health care will stay at the top, and we might just have to be ready to see a big comeback of aviation/commercial air travel after a critical year for airline companies globally. Companies in all these verticals will need critical tech deployment, so this might be a good starting point on where software developers can leverage your skills.
The old saying remains true, “The more things change, the more they stay the same.” While the workplace needs to make some changes in response to the pandemic, it is only becoming more critical for experienced software developers and technologists to expand their horizons and invest themselves in technologies that will allow them to flourish in the tech space.
