Software Development Trends 2020

Software development

Overview

Project Management and Staffing are the two common and most important operational tasks for the service providers in the IT Industry, along with productivity maintenance and performance management. However, the pandemic has turned the tables around and complicated the core of operational metrics for the IT companies all around the world. The overwhelming impact has forced people to self-isolate and work from home. And to stay sustainable in this environment, companies have had to adapt to more flexible management approaches. The trends in the industry have taken a different direction as well and to keep up with the pace, companies are now incorporating the new software development trends into their work environment.

“There’s a whole new era of change. Software Development is in the new phase and is evolving”

The lockdown and office closures have created new chaotic patterns for the operational teams and IT companies are re-evaluating their analytics, software development operations, productivity measures and budget allocations.

Let’s get a clear picture of how 2020 has changed the way IT industry works and where does software development stand –

Highlights

  • There is an unparalleled demand for capacity and speed.
  • Remote working has provided an untapped potential for software development companies in the staffing process, as developers are expanding their ecosystems.
  • New ways of communication have been enabled i.e. “touch-less” & “virtual” approaches.
  • Work from home has affected productivity maintenance as some teams find collaboration or collaborative productivity hard.

Software development has been the pillar for many companies and it continues to be so in 2020 as well. The industry is full of opportunities, however, the landscape is changing. Existing technical skills and practices are being updated constantly. Which is why businesses are picking up and learning the new practices i.e. trends and evolutions in the software development space.

In this article, we will discuss how the industry is evolving and where it is headed, which will help you get insights about the software development landscape. This will help you in further improving your team of developers and keeping up with the rapidly changing industry trends. Furthermore, we will tackle the management-related challenges i.e. hiring, outsourcing and managing developers, creating a top-performing team.

Managing Software Development

Tech companies face a lot of challenges in software development. What are these challenges? Have the issues shifted over the years? Let’s have a look and analyze how they can be tackled by the managers.

According to the report by Coding Sans, Capacity is the biggest challenge, due to its limitation, while the backlog is full. The second challenge being Knowledge Sharing, which suffers when the deadline is near and the backlogs are full.

Biggest Challenges in Software Development

Capacity – This challenge is overcome by implementing agile methods to improve existing practices by training developers to use them and hiring more developers to increase the work-load. Recruiting or outsourcing to contractors, both practices work.

Sharing Knowledge – Sharing knowledge is a means to optimize work routine, mentoring juniors and setting up a system for software developers. Pair programming and code reviews are the most common ways to share knowledge.

Though the challenges differ for developers and managers due to the differences in their job roles. Let’s take a look at the chart which depicts the biggest challenges faced by Managers, over the years 2018, 2019 and 2020.

Biggest Challenges faced by Managers

It was noted that the top most challenge for managers was Capacity, followed by second hiring talent, which has not changed for the last 3 years. The lack of workforce is still an industry-wide problem faced by the managers and naturally, the developers are less worried about hiring and more concerned about knowledge sharing between the team members.

Furthermore, there can be seen a significant disparity in Time management over the years, which has declined for good. And the rest of the challenges are evening out.

Outsourcing Software Development

Dealing with Capacity is the top-most challenge faced by tech companies, along with hiring developers.

 “Outsourcing software development seems to work as a quick fix for the Capacity & Hiring problem.”

According to the report, 37,38% of the companies have fully or partly outsourced software development to contractors in the last 12 months, while 62,52% haven’t fully grasped the idea.

The percentage further divides into three categories – Software Development Companies, Freelancers and Both. 56% of the work was outsourced to the software development companies, 25% to the freelancers and rest 19% was mixed of both.

Out of the companies who opted for outsourcing, only 17.17% were dissatisfied with their outsourced work.

These numbers clearly show that the demand for software development companies i.e. agencies or contractors has surged up. Companies facing staffing challenges are now more inclined towards outsourcing the work, and here is why –

Around 83% of the developers are either not actively looking for a job or interested in new job opportunities. This may be because they are highly satisfied with their current job, which leaves less managers with the low bandwidth of talent available in the market.

Only 17.3% of developers are actively looking for a job, while 25.1% are not interested in new opportunities.

Considering the employment status of the developers, 70.99% of professional developers are already employed as a full-timer. Looking at the data, a total of 92% of the professional developers are employed at-least as a part-timer. 12% of all the hired software developers are students and 8.9% freelancers or contractors.

Though the data was recorded during the pre-pandemic period and since the dynamics have now changed, there has certainly been a rise in outsourcing of software development. Even the companies which were not open to it before are now making a gradual shift towards the new ‘redefined’ scenario.

Remote Work

Remote work is how companies are sustaining in 2020. It’s not the ‘future’ anymore, it’s the current scenario.

There has been a dramatic acceleration in Digital Transformation and the way of working has completely changed.

“Remote working is the present”

76.54% of the companies allowed remote work in the past year and more companies are planning on implementing it.

At the rate at which things have changed or are changing and companies are adapting to the new working practices, the trends show that there will be further rise in remote work culture.

Tools and Tech

In this section, we’ll glance over the most popular programming languages and tools used for testing, project management, version control and communication. With time, new technologies are gradually pacing up and gaining momentum.

Programming Languages Trends –

The graph shows the most commonly used programming languages over the last three years and unsurprisingly, JavaScript has still maintained its position to the top.

Going further down the list, TypeScript (26.32%) has edged out Python and C in terms of popularity. Additionally, Ruby and Swift lost ground over the years.

Development Tools Trends –

A wide variety of tools are used by the developer teams for testing, project management and communicating while working on a project. There are a plethora of tools all of which can not be listed on charts but here are the most popular software development tools in 2020. The following charts, in no particular order, are from the Stack Overflow and Coding Sans reports of Software Developing Trends 2020.

GitHub (82%) is the most commonly used Collaborative Tool by professional developers. Slack is the second favourite of 53%.

For Testing – 75.25% of the companies use tools for software testing. Out of which, Jest (34.22%) is the most used testing tool, followed by Selenium (29.66%).

24.75% of the companies do not use any software testing tools and when asked about the limitations of using software testing tools, these were the factors that were mentioned.

According to the survey, the chart below shows the most popular Project Management, Communication and SCM (Source Control Client) Tools of 2020.

Slack remains the most popular tool used by developer teams.

Earlier, most of the software development companies used to communicate face-to-face, the project deadlines, milestones or releases were mostly done in-person. Around 60% of the tasks were communicated via in-person meetings, followed by 46% which relied on tracking tools.

Though considering other factors, there has been a massive trend change in recent times and Tools like Google Hangouts, Microsoft Teams and Zoom have gained immense popularity, taking a step forward. Due to the fast-paced digitalization happening around the world at the moment, the demand for communications has rapidly increased. So far so, Google Hangouts (now termed as Google Meets) and Microsoft have made these tools free for organizations to use. This is the result of more companies allowing remote work.

The tech companies are always on the lookout to update their tech tools to improve their overall work efficiency. Innovations happen quickly and hence, there is always ongoing research about new development tools. Around 75% of developers tend to learn new technology at least every few months or once a year to keep improving their skillset.

Hiring Trends

Hiring developers is a crucial part for companies and it is a challenge for managers, along with employee retention.

These are the hiring practices used over the last 3 years and out of all the methods of hiring developers, it’s seen that employee referral is still the most popular one.  Followed by in-house recruitment (14.16%). However, Online portals and recruitment agencies have been slowly gaining momentum.

Currently, with most of the work being handled remotely, the usage of online portals might see a further increment.

Looking at the criteria of the companies, while hiring developers – “willingness to learn” remains the most essential trait. Cultural Fit being the second, followed by Technical Skill Evolution and then comes the work experience which seems a little less important now than it was years ago.

“Soft Skills have surpassed College Degree”

Companies are now emphasizing on factors other than formal education, for instance – Soft Skills are also evaluated and according to the survey, they have surpassed formal education. However, when the professional developers were asked for their stance on formal education, this was the result –

Importance of Formal Education

Around 84% of the professional developers feel that formal education is at least somewhat important. However, 16% believe that it is not at all necessary.

Hands-on experience experience matters more than having a piece of paper – Education Degree”

Employee Retention
Another challenge for managers after hiring the right talent is to retain them when there is already scarcity in the industry. Managers need to keep their developers’ team motivated, while they work to keep them satisfied with the job. Most of the companies keep their team motivated by showing team spirit and providing challenging or engaging work. There’s also an emphasis on Autonomy and creating a unique product.

While these are the traits the managers look for while hunting talent, let’s have a look at what developers expect from a job.

Company’s culture seems to be the most important factor for the developers, which is why employer branding is important. Most of the companies put themselves out there as a workplace with a cool working environment but if the employer branding is done right, it will make your company more visible and transparent for potential employees, making them more likely to apply.

For this, there has to be honesty, with a clear picture of the company’s policies and culture. Furthermore, the job position has to be defined carefully and clearly, stating the requirements and task description of the job. Once the accurate picture is out there in the market, the hiring process is more effective.

Performance Measurement

Performances of the developers differentiate them into average and top-performing teams. The performance is measured on various metrics.

As you can see, working software is the number 1 measurement for top performers. Completed tasks come next in line. Though the difference between the measurements is small, it is significant.

It is noted that top-performers focus more on code readability and test coverage. When it comes to problems faced by them, they face delivery problems with the lack of defined deliverables and making correct estimations.

Whereas, the biggest problem faced by average developers is unrealistic expectations, followed by the two same problems faced by top-performers. Along with that, there are also issues of missing key skills or coordination.

Meanwhile, managers face problems such as unrealistic expectations, estimations, requirements and prioritization and the budgeting.

Conclusion

There have been ground-breaking changes in the tech industry since last year. The pandemic has altered software development trends in one way or another. From hiring teams to retaining them, managing teams to meeting the business objectives – the way of working and task implementation has taken a new direction.

This article has covered all the current trends, what challenges do the software development company managers face, how the organizations are altering their tactics and the estimations of what is there to come in future.

Hire Senior Flutter Developer : 3X The Development Resource For The Price Of 1

Countless frameworks help you to bring your ideas into reality. The one thing that makes Flutter stand out is that it enables you to create a native mobile application with just a single codebase. Yes, you read it right: one codebase to build two different apps for Android and iOS. This is the shortest definition of Flutter. What’s more? It is created by Google and is a free open-source framework.

 

Key Features of Flutter That Makes It Ideal for Development 

Now that you know what Flutter is (in the shortest form), let us look at the key features that make Flutter stand apart when it comes to development. 

 

  • Hot Reload

 

One of the standing out feature of Flutter is Hot Reload. This feature saves a lot of time as it lets the developer view the changes made instantly in the application itself. Developers love this feature as it also lets them fix bugs quickly on the go. The instant preview feature lets the developers go wild and try out new experiments.

 

  • One Codebase – Two Platforms

 

Shoot two birds with one bullet with the cross-platform development feature. As stated earlier, Flutter enables to create native mobile applications for two platforms (Android and iOS) with a single codebase and a single programming language (Dart). Did you know that the UI and apps of Fuchsia (the new OS that is supposed to replace Android in the near future) are being designed with Flutter?

 

  • Widgets, Widgets and Widgets

 

Flutter has provided importance to developing widgets and its customisation. Complex, as well as simple widgets, can be integrated to replace traditional methods. Flutter also provides the option to build apps using only widgets from its list of ready-made widgets. The material design support and glitch-free performance of the widgets provide a smooth experience for the user.

  • Hot Reload

One of the standing out feature of Flutter is Hot Reload. This feature saves a lot of time as it lets the developer view the changes made instantly in the application itself. Developers love this feature as it also lets them fix bugs quickly on the go. The instant preview feature lets the developers go wild and try out new experiments.

  • Smooth Curves

 

New users have claimed that Flutter provides a fast learning curve. Integrations such as Firebase, platform APIs, etc. makes the entire development process a delightful experience. The detailed documentation available helps new as well as experienced users to take their Flutter skills to the next level. The framework being free and open-source also plays a huge role in making Flutter one of the most popular frameworks in 2020 and beyond.

Flutter vs. Native 

Flutter offers many big advantages when compared to native platforms. One such advantage is the cross-platform support. Like mentioned earlier, the same codebase can be used for multiple platforms such as Android, iOS, Web, Desktop, etc. Flutter has also been improved with many versions which can bridge the gap and provide the same stability and performance like native apps to an extent that there is no difference.

 

Why Flutter Is the Best Option for Startup Mobile App Development?

Flutter is also an efficient and optimal option for startups. Following are some of the reasons why startups should take note of Flutter.

  • Maximum Results with Minimum Effort

Cross platform application development is an attractive opportunity for startups as they can launch their application on different platforms tapping a lot of users. Your application will have more exposure and will be able to reach a larger set of audience. This will also increase the number of potential downloads that too with fewer development efforts as you are just using a single code for all these platforms.

  • Now Frameworks Can Reload Too

With the help of Hot Reload, errors can be quickly fixed during the development process itself. It will not have to be recompiled or redeployed. After fixing the error, you can start where it was left off. This feature is what increases the overall productivity. It gives developers the freedom to experiment without any delay.

  • An Arsenal of Useful Tools

Flutter is integrated with Firebase. Flutter Google platform provides a host of services such as storage, hosting, cloud functions, etc. This can be used by startups. They will benefit as the infrastructure becomes serverless and scalable. Usually, developers have to do the job of creating tools by themselves. But Firebase offers these tools. This makes development easier. Development can also be made automatic with these common tools.

  • Budget-friendly

Limited budget is a problem faced by many startups. While creating an app, you will have to spend on iOS app developers as well as on Android app developers. Flutter avoids this. It opens up the venue for many ways of budget-friendly development. Widgets that come with Flutter also makes sure that you can create an amazing user interface without spending separately on this aspect of development.

  • Perfect for MVPs

Flutter framework is naturally perfect for MVPs (Minimum Viable Product) as it immensely reduces cost. You need not create two different apps and maintain them. This makes development cheaper. This, in turn, negates the need to have a large team. You only need one developer for your MVP.  The performance is great to such an extent that you will not see the difference between a native app and a Flutter app. Your MVP can also be made more attractive. As widgets help you customize according to your wants, you can create appealing UI for users.

  • Vibrant Community 

Since Flutter is growing popular by the year, it has a growing and vibrant community. Developers actively contribute to this community.

 

Flutter App Development Services 

Flutter helps in the development of apps and products like a hybrid app, native app, cross platform, for web etc. 

  • Hybrid App 

Flutter is compatible with both iOS and Android making it the best framework for building hybrid applications. The Dart language is also something that makes it a great platform for a hybrid app.

  • Native App

There are several advantages you can gain from building native applications on Flutter. Flutter helps with creating blocks in the user interface. Its documentation and tools also add to the easiness of native app development. Moreover, it has customizable widgets.

  • Cross Platform App

If you want a cross platform application which has a great user interface, with great native performance and less time to market, then Flutter is the best option. It provides unique features to cross platform development.

  • Flutter for Web

In addition to mobile applications, Flutter can also be used for web content with the use of technologies such as HTML, CSS and JavaScript.

Popular Flutter Applications 

Alibaba 

Using Flutter for their second-hand trading platform Xianyu has been the best tech practice according to Alibaba’s tech team. This giant e-commerce company uses Flutter for many other cross-end solutions. Their application has more than 50 million users. What attracted them was the ease of implementation provided by Flutter. It helped them bring detailed product pages online as quickly as possible.

New York Times 

Flutter is behind the popular New York Times puzzle, KENKEN. With a single code base, it provides an interactive, native experience. It is also the first prototype that used Flutter for web development. It provides great user interface across Android, iOS, Mac and web.

Reflectly 

It is another famous application that has benefitted from Flutter. It is a lifestyle application for journaling and mindfulness. Reflectly, through Flutter, lets you create stories on personal journals, reflect on a question a day, personal insights etc. while providing a great interface.

Build Your MVP with aTeamIndia

 

One thing that is common about successful businesses like Spotify, Uber, Instagram etc. is that they have all used a Minimum Viable Product at one point in their development.
A minimum viable product is a basic version of a product that only has few sets of features usually for specific users in order to have a speedy launch in the market. The main aim of the MVP is to deliver a quick product in less time while at the same time reducing the costs involved in development. This is mainly done to acquire data and feedback that can be used to make modifications to the product in future. aTeamIndia has completed many MVP projects which have ultimately ended up to be successful products.
Often businesses and startups depend on investments and external funding. For this, you have to pitch in an idea first. The investors must be able to repose their confidence in the product. aTeamIndia can deliver you an MVP that will ensure the investors that the product will earn good revenue, reduce the check out times etc. It will prove the market validity of the product to the investors. Since MVP is fully functional in spite of being a minimum version of the product itself, the investors get to see a physical product. Stakeholders are only interested in products they can use and understand and one that can be easily launched into the market and get steady and rapid returns without having to wait much.
aTeamIndia also gives you a great opportunity to test your business idea. Not all ideas will do well in the market. With an MVP, you can see If your product idea is market validated. They can understand how their target audience will respond. It will be a product with only core features and not the final product. With the market reaction, you will get more direction as to where to take your product next. Once the product is launched into the market, you get insight into what demographic of people are more attracted to your product and how they behave with the product. You can then customise the product to suit these potential customers. If you launch a full-blown product, it is going to be difficult to change or make modifications as it would require an entire process of rebuilding. A great example of an MVP turned into a success is Instagram. It is a photo-sharing application as we know it now. When it was launched, it was mainly themed around a GPS feature. This was later changed based on market response.
With aTeamIndia’s MVP services, it is all about checking whether your idea will click or not. It is a way to understand what the market wants.

Build Your Apps the Economical Way

Build Your Apps the Economical Way

 

aTeamIndia has been known to provide mobile and application development services at reasonable prices. In fact, they have defined the very economic way of creating an application. Following are some of the ways adopted by aTeamIndia to reduce the cost incurred in developing an application.

  1. Plan Well

aTeamIndia gives a lot of importance to planning. It is important to brainstorm with the teammates. This will help in getting across ideas and then choosing what might be more favourable for the customers. Developing a mobile application requires a huge investment of time and resources. This will also make sure that you will not take up any unnecessary applications.

  1. Sketch the Design of the Final Product

A mobile application involves writing code. Therefore, it is wise to make a sketch of what you intend the app to look like and its interface to look like. This can be presented to investors so they have an idea of what your application looks like and what it offers. If you have such an idea already made, then it will also give the developer an idea as to how to go about it. As an idea is already given to the developer, it will take much less time to materialise. It will also help the developer to stay within the decided cost.

  1. Choose the Platform for Your App

Platform is another important factor. If you are a startup, then it is imperative to reduce cost. Choosing the right platform is a way to reduce cost. Usually, when developing an app, companies try to launch their application in all platforms increasing the cost exponentially. It is always best for startups to launch the application or an MVP in one platform and then expand across other platforms after taking feedback and adapting to the market accordingly.

  1. Outsource the App Development Process

Companies often do the mistake of making an in-house team of developers to make their app. However, it is a very expensive process. Outsourcing app development to aTeamIndia can reduce the cost. You will only be charged on the basis of the hours taken to finish the work. this is much cheaper than paying a fixed salary irrespective of the quantity of work done. Additionally, aTeamIndia is very punctual and specific in their communication of cost.

  1. Integrate Plugins to Improve Functionality

Sometimes it is possible that you might have plugins that are already existing. These can be incorporated into the application to decrease the cost. It is also a great way to personalise the settings which are in the templates. Incorporation of a pre-existing plugin will also reduce the time which is usually taken as it generally takes a lot of time to create new plugins. Time is very essential for making a good launch and a lot of time can be saved which otherwise would have been spent unnecessarily.

These are some of the most important steps to build an app economically. There is no need to spend needlessly even for large companies. aTeamIndia is one of the companies in the region that follow these steps and is popular for building top quality apps at economical and reasonable rates.

Laravel and Vue.js Blends Very Well

Laravel and Vue.js Blends Very Well

 

Bootstrap and jQuery are some of the most used tools that come equipped with the latest versions of Laravel in addition to Vue. Even in the detailed documentation that is provided for Laravel, Vue components are introduced. Like commonly and popularly known, Vue is a progressive framework which is specifically used for creating great user interfaces. Vue solely focuses on the viewing aspect of an application. This makes it extremely easy to merge with a different platform or an existing one. Vue alone can be used for making single-page applications. Before the front-end JavaScript frameworks were event-driven, it was very difficult to update the Document Object Model or DOM. Previously, you had to take the page and make the change to a small part. However, this was not enough. You had to reload the entire page in order to execute the change. Like for example, if you are watching a YouTube video and if there is a new comment, then the whole page will reload and you will have to watch the video again. However, Vue can solve these obstacles. It optimises a virtual DOM in order to manage what is being viewed by the user. Vue creates a copy of the DOM and then stores it. Only the changed part gets updated without reloading the whole DOM.

Following are the reasons why Laravel and Vue work well.

All the applications on the internet are purely event-driven. These applications are created so that the users have an amazing user interface. Because everything occurs in the frontend, the users do not have to reload a page. What Vue does is that it enables you to build a full-scale application which is also event-driven. All the activities can easily be managed in the frontend. The components are composable which gives you the flexibility to use it however you want.

aTeamIndia is the best team to make sure that Vue JS and Laravel blend together. Because they work together so beautifully, it involves less effort. It does not require much effort to request data from your Laravel application. Changes in the user interface can be made by simply making changes in the components without having to reload the page. Some apps function in such a way that it will require frequent updates. Thus, the frontend will need to be completely run on JavaScript.

The traditional non-virtual DOM has many issues. JavaScript or jQuery or other JavaScript libraries do not have a virtual DOM. These cause many performance issues. Whenever there are many changes, the data required to track all the changes increases. The changes to the DOM will thus slow down and will not be instantaneous. This will lead to performance lags. When the application is updated using Vue components the dependencies will be tracked. The system will automatically know which components have to be modified when there is a change in data. Thus, it only takes minimum resources to make updates to the DOM. It will also enhance the efficiency of the application.
