Software Architecture and Design InfoQ Trends Report - April 2023
The InfoQ Trends Reports provide readers with a high-level overview of key topics, while helping the InfoQ editorial team focus on innovative technologies. Highlights from the April 2023 “Architecture & Design” Trends Report include:
Design for Portability is gaining adoption, as frameworks like Dapr focus on a cloud-native abstraction model and allow architects to separate business logic from implementation details.
Large language models are going to have a significant impact, from helping us understand architectural trade-offs to empowering a new generation of low-code and no-code developers.
Sustainability of software will be a major design consideration in the coming years. Work is being done to better measure and then reduce the carbon footprint of software systems.
Decentralized apps are taking blockchain beyond cryptocurrency and NFTs, but a lack of consumer demand will make this a niche pattern.
Architects are always looking for improvements on how to document, communicate, and understand decisions. This may be another area where large language models will play a role in the future, acting as forensic archeologists to comb through ADRs and git history.

ChatGPT is fun, but will it replace programmers (and marketers)?
While some predict widespread job losses and economic upheaval resulting from AI-powered tools like ChatGPT, many experts predict that AI will actually augment the nature of human work by automating the tedious and repetitive aspects of our jobs, allowing us to focus on more creative work.
