* **Five Trends We Are Afraid Of**.
Programming languages, frameworks, paradigms, deployment models,
hardware and software configurations change very often and fast. However, there
are a few other things that also change, and which scare us. First, it's the
inevitable trend of working out of office and even out of company, in
distributed temporary projects -- most of us are not ready for that and
don't know how to do it. Second, the attention to the quality of code we were
paying ten years ago is not what the future demands from us -- programmers
become a very expensive component of any project and they must think about
the maintainability mess they used to leave behind. Third, the world of open source
grows quickly and staying out of it is not an option anymore, however many
of us don't know how to deal with it. Fourth, we are getting closer to customers
and this is what many of us are not ready for, since we used to work from
behind an army of product owners, project managers, and customer relationship
managers -- this will be changed in the future and we must be ready. Fifth,
the quickly growing arsenal of cloud services makes it very important for
programmers to understand DevOps and know how to use not only frameworks
and libraries, but also hosted services. These five trends are important to
consider and get ourselves ready for them.
