InfoQ 2021 Year In Review: An overview of Key Software Development Trends
In a recent podcast, InfoQ editors discussed what they have seen in 2021 and speculate a little on what they hope to see in 2022. Some of the questions they discuss: Is hybrid working here to stay? What are the benefits and challenges of multi-cloud adoption? Do distributed teams help improve microservices adoption? Will AI/ML and low-code replace programmers?
InfoQ has also published the “2021 Trends Report” eMag, a compendium of four key trends reports published in 2021, including:
Software Architecture & Design
AI, ML, and Data Engineering
Culture & Methods
Devops and Cloud
How to Create Winning Content for Senior Software Practitioners
B2B marketers often ask us what kind of content and topics resonate best with our readers. Looking back at many of the successful advertising campaigns that have run on InfoQ.com, we have found that the most popular eBooks, white papers, blogs, and videos are those that address a key pain point or get readers up-to-speed on an important new trend or technology. Typically, these are white papers and eBooks that focus on the same topics that align with our editorial model.
InfoQ’s editorial model is focused on producing content about technologies that are in the innovator, early adopter, and early majority stages of the technology adoption curve.
In essence what we try to do is identify ideas that fit into what Geoffrey Moore referred to as the early market, where “the customer base is made up of technology enthusiasts and visionaries who are looking to get ahead of either an opportunity or a looming problem,” or technologies that we think are likely to “cross the chasm” to broader adoption.
