Software trends for 2019

A developer’s work touches almost every life on the planet, and the need for software development is in constant demand. Hence, more people are moving into the development sector and picking the trending technology. This year is an exciting and important year for software development. Even though the trends in software technology are short-lived, there are a couple of trending technology that will become mainstream in 2019.  

Artificial Intelligence

In a recent report by Gartner, the revenue of the AI industry is set to hit $1.2 trillion by the end of 2018, up around 70% from the previous year. That said, business leaders cite artificial intelligence as the critical driver of digital transformation.

Businesses implement AI technology to execute several tasks to provide high-quality services and enhance customer experience. So if you are a keen software developer, then artificial intelligence development is something to keep an eye on.

Blockchain Technology

Blockchain technology is undoubtedly an ingenious invention. By allowing digital information to be distributed but not copied, it created the backbone of a new type of internet. Although it became a hot technology trend because of Bitcoin, it has applications beyond bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.

Blockchain development is quickly and rapidly gaining ground as all industries and companies are either adopting it or planning to adopt it in the future. In a 2018 report by Forbes, it was stated that the ten most prominent companies in the world are now exploring Blockchain. What this means for software developers is that organizations in every industry will start building blockchain-based applications, and demand for blockchain developers will explode.

Progressive Web Apps

The websites or web pages that look and act like a native mobile or conventional apps are known as progressive web apps (PWAs). These apps provide the great benefit of a mobile experience along with the features of browser technology, and they’re considered the most significant trend that will hit 2019. So, if you’re looking for something easier to dive into, consider exploring PWAs.

Low-code development

Low code development is quite a newbie to the list, having been around for only a short time. Even so, technology has grown pretty fast among businesses. It is widely known that time-to-market is one of the most crucial aspects of app success, and LCD provides a faster way to build and deploy enterprise-grade applications. The market for low-code tools is expected to reach $10 billion in revenue by 2019 because the technology helps address productivity issues such as project backlogs and the lack of skilled resources.


Every company in the digital market is in danger of becoming the target of a cyber attack. Protecting data loss and leakage is the biggest concern for businesses and cybersecurity professionals, followed by threats to data privacy and breaches of confidentiality. Software developers also know that if users have doubts about an app’s security features, they will not use it because they have numerous alternatives. And surveys now show that the number of cyberattacks is continuously growing. Currently, 1 in 100 smartphones is infected with malicious software, be it a bug or a virus. In this case, it is understandable why 2019 will focus on data safety.

That being said, it seems pretty clear that IT is still the trendy profession of the decade, and kickstarting your career or moving to the most in-demand niches within IT may be a good idea for 2019! So, what are you waiting for?
