The Top 5 Software Development Trends for 2023

Software Development Trends for 2023

The software development industry is constantly changing, with new technologies and trends emerging yearly. In 2023, we’re expecting to see even more change than usual—plus, it’s going to be super exciting! We’ve already seen some new trends emerge in the past few years, but they’re still gaining momentum. Here are my top five predictions for what the future holds for software developers.

So what’s up with DevSecOps?

DevSecOps is the practice of DevOps and security working together to improve the security of the software development process. It’s still a relatively new term, but it has been around for a while.

The main goal is to create a more secure software development process by integrating security into all phases of SDLC (from requirements definition through production) using code analysis, automated testing, and better communication between developers and security professionals.

In 2023 and beyond, DevSecOps will become even more prevalent. Most organizations have already implemented DevSecOps, and those that haven’t will be forced to do so by regulators. As a result, it’s unlikely that there will be any significant changes in the way software security is developed.

AI and ML in Software Development Aren’t Just for Big Companies

AI is essential to software development, especially in data analysis and machine learning. ML, or machine learning as it is sometimes called, has become pervasive across many industries. The growth is expected to continue through 2023. Over half of all businesses will have incorporated cutting-edge technology into their products or services.

It’s easy for those unfamiliar with these terms to feel intimidated—but don’t let the term “machine learning” keep you from exploring what your business can achieve using artificial intelligence tools like Amazon SageMaker Model Management or Microsoft Azure Machine Learning Studio (AMLS).

Containers are the (Security) King of Software Development

Containers have been a significant driver of software development for decades. In their original form, containers were used to isolate and protect code. Containers can be used to do that with data as well—and they can also help protect the hardware.

In the past, when you wanted to run an application on your computer, you downloaded it from an app store or another source and installed it on your computer’s hard disk drive (HDD). The HDD is like a big file cabinet where all your files are stored; each program you install gets its folder in the cabinet. This makes it easy to access your programs individually, but it’s not ideal: each program takes up space on the HDD and takes time to load when you open it up again to use its services or features.

When you’re running multiple applications at a once-for example, when working on multiple projects at a work-this problem only gets worse because each application has its little desk drawer filled with stuff (data) inside of it! That means more time is spent waiting for programs to load before any work gets done.

2020 All Over Again: Multi-Cloud is Still Hot

Multi-cloud is a hot topic for two reasons:

First, it’s a big trend. Multi-cloud is proliferating and will continue to do so. According to The 451 Group research, spending on multi-cloud systems was expected to grow 41 percent in 2019 alone. In 2020, Gartner predicted that by 2022 half of all enterprises would be using multi-cloud strategies. According to Forbes contributor Jay Jacobs, this number will reach 34 percent by 2023. And according to recent data from the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), 91 percent of organizations are using at least one cloud service provider today—and over half use three or more different providers at any given time!

Second, multi-cloud presents many challenges for developers who wish their applications could run anywhere with minimal effort or configuration changes (which makes sense if we’re going big picture). It also raises new questions about how application architectures should look when companies have multiple data centers across continents—where should you store your backups? How can users access any data they need without having complex VPN networks between them?

5G is Shaping the Future of Software Development, One Project at a Time

5G is the next-generation wireless standard for mobile connectivity. It can potentially be ten times faster than 4G LTE, delivering much more information at a much lower latency. 5G will enable new use cases for mobile apps that have never been possible before, including high-definition video streaming and augmented reality (AR).

But don’t take my word for it. According to research firm International Data Corporation (IDC), “the [5G] ecosystem is moving quickly with vendors investing billions of dollars in R&D efforts and infrastructure build-outs.” And while we’re still waiting on an official rollout date, wireless carriers around the world are already testing out 5G networks in their cities and countries—and they aren’t wasting any time incorporating this technology into their business strategies:

  • AT&T plans to launch its first commercial 5G network in parts of 12 U.S cities this year
  • Verizon Wireless is also working towards having its first commercial deployment ready by late 2020 or early 2021

It’s going to be a busy year in 2023.

The software development industry is a hot topic right now, and that will not change anytime soon. It will only get hotter as more people realize how lucrative and rewarding software development can be.

In 2023, there will be even more opportunities for you as a software developer than there are today. New technologies and tools will undoubtedly be available—and probably some old ones too! You’ll have plenty of time to explore what’s out there and decide on what you want your career path to look like in this fast-paced field.
