The year 2020 has been marked a remarkable year in the history of the software development industry as well as programmers due to the sudden focus of the audience towards digitalization because of the global pandemic. Since many businesses are now getting digitalized, web application and software development has become a crucial part of their overall growth. With the help of developers and programmers, these businesses thrive on digital platforms.
It has already been seven months into 2021, hence, we can evidently conclude that the era of skilled programmers has finally come. Therefore, in this blog, we will be briefing you about the trends of technology and programmers that were predicted or are being followed currently. Let's start!
Without any second thought, Quantum Computing is the most advanced technology in today’s time, hence, it impacts all sectors, including the development industry. IBM has officially reported that they will be debuting a 1,121 qubit IBM Quantum Condor processor. To understand a quantum computer and how to advance it is, let us assume it is a chess player. If a chess player is a quantum computer, it can play with up to 50 other chess players all at once! That’s how powerful and advance it is. Keeping that in mind, we might see wonderful discoveries this year.

The statistics and facts show that the deep learning market is estimated to grow up to $93.34 Billion by the year 2028!

The main reason for this is TensorFlow 2.0 has all the features of PyTorch but it also works seamlessly on Google Collab, however, if we talk for developers, PyTorch is more “developer-friendly”.
Rapid Application Development is also known as low/no code Application Development is projected to reach the market of $65.15 Billion by the year 2027 as many businesses are being digitalized. Platforms like Microsoft Power Apps and Appian are now supporting low or no coding app development.
Current jQuery is ruling the market of frontend developing software, however, it is shortly going to lose its position to React.js and Angular as they will be dominating the market gradually. React.js is the most used framework that is suggested by the clients with downloads that are increasing day-by-day.
There are many more trends that are about to lead the market of the programming industry and it is impossible to pen down all of them in a blog, however, we have tried our best to cover all the points that we think will emerge in the market this year and will be a huge part of today’s programmer’s life. We hope we were able to give you an overview of the upcoming and ongoing tech trends of 2021.
