For the last two years, Walmart engineers have been steadily integrating React Native into their mobile development tool chest. Instead of aiming for a pure React Native app, they chose to deliver a hybrid app leveraging the best of native and React.

There are several approaches to building a mobile app for iOS and Android. You can opt for two completely independent native implementations, sharing no code at all; you can go full cross-platform aiming to have just a single code base using Flutter, React Native, Ionic, or Xamarin; or, you could aim for an hybrid app, where part is native, part is built using a cross-platform development framework. Each approach strikes its own balance of costs and benefits, and no solution is best for all cases.

While the hybrid app approach could seem the most sensible, if you choose the wrong technology, building a hybrid app sharing a common code base may incur hidden costs that make it even more expensive than building two independent native apps. On the contrary, wisely mixing native with cross-platform technologies may help you strike the right balance and achieve great development performance.

This was exactly Walmart’s case when adopting React Native to rewrite parts of their existing apps for Android and iOS. Thanks to their approach, Walmart engineers say they could double development velocity; share business logic not only across mobile apps but also with their React/Redux Web app; leverage their developers’ experience with Web technologies to build mobile features; and take advantage of instant page reloads and Over the Air (OTA) code push to fix critical issues.

A key component in Walmart approach was its own Electrode platform, and its sibling Electrode Native.

To be successful in any software migration project, it’s important to have the three T’s: Team, Tools, and Tenacity. We already had a small team of React developers diving into the mobile app world and loving it. We needed a tool to help us integrate our RN pages into our native apps and give us a standard way of communicating between JavaScript and native.

Electrode Native enables the integration of MiniApp within an existing mobile app using AAR files or frameworks. MiniApps are just React Native apps that are able to communicate with the rest of the app through auto-generated JavaScript, Java, or Swift APIs. In addition, Electrode Native apps may use a centralized document database to share information about mobile application versions, native dependencies, and information about MiniApps.

Another advantageous design decision Walmart engineers took was using native navigation instead of React Native navigation system. This enabled integrating new pages one by one within the existing stack of views with native animations and speed.

In addition, embedding new pages with the existing navigation stack made it easier to use A/B testing to understand how customer reacted to new features and occasionally disable React Native pages to deal with any issues.

Currently, Walmart mobile apps are almost entirely powered by React Native, but both apps will remain hybrid and leverage the native platform for better integration. The original article contains additional details, such as the related organizational challenges and how Walmart overcame them.

This morning ProdPerfect, a technology startup focused on web application testing, announced a $13 million Series A led by Anthos Capital. Anthos is perhaps best known for investing in Honey, a startup which recently sold to PayPal for several billion dollars.

ProdPerfect,  a remote-focused company, closed a $2.6 million seed round earlier in 2019. Fika Ventures and Eniac Ventures took part in the Series A after also putting capital into the company in the company’s preceding seed investment. The startup has now raised $15.7 million across three rounds, according to Crunchbase.

What does ProdPerfect’s product do regarding testing? And what is it going to do with all its new money? TechCrunch chatted with Dan Widing, ProdPerfect’s founder and CEO, to answer those questions, and learn how quickly the company is growing.

Testing

ProdPerfect automates end-to-end testing for web developers. According to Widing, the product “followed some of the lessons of the product analytics industry to build a tool that lets us quantitatively understand how our customers’ live users traverse the customers’ web application.” The company estimates that “many companies are compelled to put around 20% of their engineering budget into staffing a QA engineering department,” spend that it reckons it can help cut.

The web is a big place, with lots of pages and apps and more built and maintained by a global army of developers. Those end products require testing to find errors and bugs that could cause havoc for end users and companies alike. You can test well, or poorly. But according to Widing, the “gold standard of web testing is either directly or indirectly controlling a browser to traverse the site like a user does,” also known as “end-to-end testing.”

The product seems to have found early market traction. According to Widing, 18 months after landing its first handful of customers, his company has reached the 50-customer mark, generating “around $2 million” in annual recurring revenue (ARR), a standard revenue metric for modern software (SaaS) companies.

What’s next

When TechCrunch last covered ProdPerfect, we called it a “Boston-based startup focused on automating QA testing for web apps.” All of that is still true aside from the location. According to its CEO, ProdPerfect transferred its headquarters from Boston to San Francisco earlier in 2019. However, Widing said, ProdPerfect doesn’t focus on the move much, as it views itself as “a remote-first company.”

But no matter where its nexus sits, the company plans on investing heavily in sales and marketing spend (traditional for a Series A-level company looking to quickly expand revenue), and invest in “product development and customer service,” according to Widing. So, tech investments, go-to-market spend and a modest war chest for the future are the game plan for ProdPerfect’s new money. (Widing noted in an email to TechCrunch that “it helps to have a good stockpile” in times of global macro uncertainty, which is a smart perspective.)

The firm ARR figure that ProdPerfect provided will help the market vet its progress over the next few years. The company will probably aim for more than a doubling in size next year, more likely shooting for a tripling. So, how close to $6 million ARR that ProdPerfect can reach in 2020 will be fun to watch. If the firm manages that sort of growth, expect it to raise again to keep investing in its product and go-to-market motion.

WASHINGTON (AP) — What are the skills that employers most value in freelancers?

They want workers fluent in the computer programming language TypeScript and the software framework .NET Core. But they also favor softer skills, like good grammar and efficient bookkeeping.

That’s according to a list of the top 100 skills sought in freelance workers, compiled by Upwork, an online staffing company.

The Associated Press interviewed Adam Ozimek, Upwork’s chief economist, about such priorities and the way they show how work is changing — from where freelancers live to how they can earn a premium wage. The conversation has been edited for clarity and length.

Q: Is a specific industry demanding these skills?

A: The industries that are hiring remote workers really cut across the spectrum: Consulting, internet software and services, consumer spending, health care publishing, education. Companies are searching for talent outside the expensive cities where they’re headquartered, and this is going to be increasingly the case.

There is also a mix of specializations that employers are seeking. What’s fascinating is this list includes emerging skills such as Asana, which is a web-based management tool. You don’t just need someone who is a programmer; you need someone with very specific skills.

Q: Your analysis suggests that freelance workers with the top 100 skills earn an average of $43.71 an hour — or nearly $90,000 a year if they’re working 40-hour weeks. Do the earnings reflect the demand for these skills or the shortage of available workers with these skills?

A: Too often when people talk about freelance, they focus on narrow unskilled work such as Uber or food delivery that is part of the gig economy.

The jobs on this list involve skilled services. These jobs actually make up 45% of the freelance market, so freelancing is not synonymous with lower wages.

Our estimate is that roughly a third of workers participate in freelancing at some point during a year. This translates into an impact of 5% of GDP, meaning that the sector is roughly as large as the construction industry.

Q: Are these jobs being filled by people waiting for full-time employment with a company?

A: Many of the people seeking to freelance as a career need flexibility with their time. They may have disabilities or home responsibilities such as taking care of children or other family members. Working when they want to work is a big advantage.

Q: What did you find surprising in the list?

A: There is international demand for these skills. Forty-eight percent of the jobs for these skills are being filled by non-U.S. companies in Canada, the UK, Australia, India, China and the UAE. We tend to forget when discussing trade that the U.S. exports services, not just goods.

Smartphones have become a common device for use by business as well as general consumers, and note-taking is one of the simplest type – but probably most essential – of the various business apps available.

Whether you’re just typing text, writing with a stylus, or scribbling with your finger, there are a lot of different note-taking apps for Android out there. Some are focused more on just taking simple notes, while others come with more features and functionality that can turn your smartphone into a digital notebook, or workbook.

You can also now use your smartphone for taking minutes from minutes, simply putting down business ideas and other inspirations, or even work with collaborative software with colleagues and add the notes you make.

We’ve previously listed the best Android apps and the best free Android apps, so as we move into 2020, here we’ll feature the best note-taking apps available for Android.

  • Also take a look at the best productivity apps for mobile

Best apps for note-taking with Android – at a glance

  1. OneNote
  2. Evernote
  3. Material Notes
  4. Google Keep
  5. Simplenote
  6. Keep My Notes

1. OneNote

A flexible note-taking app

Multi-platform supportWorks with Microsoft Office formatsFreeNot hugely advanced

For decades, Microsoft has dominated the software scene, and things haven’t changed today. Offered as part of the Office family of productivity apps, OneNote is one of the most popular and capable note-taking apps you can get. This app is capable of a great deal, whether you want to capture information from emails or embed Excel tables.

This app is a multi-platform affair which is hooked up to the cloud, meaning that if you’ve written some notes on your laptop, you can pull these up in a meeting via your smartphone. OneNote works across Windows, Mac, iOS and Android devices.

The Android app is easy to use and works as a flexible canvas, letting you type, handwrite, draw and clip things you find on the web. What’s more, you can even scan notes made on paper and make them searchable through OneNote. To organize your notes, you can create tags, labels, to-do lists and follow-up items. It’s also possible to categorize notes based on their importance.

OneNote allows for collaboration, letting you share your virtual notebooks with anyone. People can leave comments and follow-up questions on your notes as well. The best thing about OneNote, though, is that it’s completely free to download while offering a plethora of premium capabilities.

2. Evernote

Many regard this as a must-have productivity app

User-friendlyPowerful note-taking featuresFree version

Evernote is a well-respected and powerful productivity app. It’s described as an organization and planning app that lets you take both typed and handwritten notes, create to-do lists, scan documents using your camera, and collaborate on content with others.Advertisement

The great thing about Evernote is that it makes use of a variety of media. For instance, you can create notes in text form, or as sketches, photos, audio, video, PDFs or web clippings.

Just like Microsoft’s OneNote, this app is underpinned by cloud technology. That means you can sync content across all your devices from computers through to tablets and phones. In other words, if you start a task on one device, you can complete it on another.

With Evernote, you can create, share and discuss content with your colleagues as well. The app is currently free to download, but the premium plan which advertises itself as the ultimate workspace is available for $7.99 per month or $69.99 when paid yearly.

3. Material Notes

A visual way to make notesEasy-to-useColored notesAffordable

Material Notes is a streamlined app that allows you to create notes, to-do lists and reminders. These are all color-coded and stored within a card-style interface to keep things better organised, and to make it easy to find relevant information. You also get the ability to mark important notes with stars, and these are saved within a category based on the urgency of projects.

4. Google Keep

A comprehensive offering for note-takingBacked by GoogleAllows for scanning documentsFree

Google offers a highly capable note-taking app in the form of Keep, which allows you to create as many notes and lists as you want. And you don’t need to stick to mere text – you can also add images and audio to your notes.

In fact, there’s even the ability to record memos for the app to automatically transcribe. That’s particularly handy if you’ve had a light bulb moment and want to get it noted down somewhere quickly. Similarly to OneNote, you can scan handwritten notes, receipts, invoices and other documents through your camera.

Google Keep is a pretty decent productivity app for teams, too. You can easily share notes and collaborate with others. Other features include color-coded labels, reminders and the benefit of multi-platform support. The app is free to download from the Play Store.

5. Simplenote

A simple notepad applicationCHECK AMAZONHighly streamlined note-takingSolid organizational capabilitiesFree

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed when an app is weighed down with tons of features, many of which you might never use. Simplenote is designed for people who just want a quick, easy-to-use piece of software to jot down spontaneous ideas.

Just open up the app, and right away you can create notes and lists. As you continue to use the software and amass more notes, you’re able to organize them with tags and pins. Every time you create a new note, it’s stored in the cloud and can be accessed through other devices. The app is completely free to download and use.

6. Keep My Notes

Multiple formatting optionsSpeech to textPassword protect notes

Keep My Notes is a note-taking app for Android that comes with a number of neat features. For starters, you can create handwritten notes using a finger or stylus, plus there’s also the option to create notes using a built-in text-to-speech feature.

There are also various formatting options available to bold, underline, or italicize – among other things – plus the ability to add audio to your notes. Even better, for added security, you can password protect notes.

Notes can be set up like sticky notes on your home screen, and notes can even shared with other apps.

There are different light or dark themes available, and the display can be changed to portrait for phones and landscape for tablets. 

Additionally, you can also change the text size and color when inputting text for your notes in the first place, which can be very handy.

Altogether, Keep My Notes is a handy little package that backs up to the cloud. You can run the app for free with ads, but there are in-app purchases, not least to run ad-free. 

Other note-taking apps for Android to consider

The above are only a small selection of the number of note-taking apps available for Google’s Android operating system. There are plenty more available at the Google Play store and we’ll cover some of the most popular alternatives below:  
  
Notepad is a simple but colorful way of working with taking and presenting different notes. It doesn’t run like a notepad, more like a notice board where you can organize your notes, such as checklists, shopping lists, writing notes, or business comments. You can organize notes according to color, label, or category, which makes it really easy to use. It’s also free, but includes ads.

Samsung Notes is Samsung’s replacement for S Notes and Memo, and is a general notepad for organizing text, images, and audio. Where it differs from others are the extra features for scribbling or sketching, with various color editor options that make it as much as an all-purpose sketchbook as a notepad, depending on what you want to get from it.

Notes is another general notepad app which allows you to organize text, images, and audio. It has a simple but clean look that makes it easy to work with. Notes also allows for password-protected areas, and is free to use when running ads, which can be switched-off using an in-app purchase of about two dollars.

Classic Notes is one of the simplest apps listed, and this is probably one of its selling points. While it allows for taking basic notes, it doesn’t do much more, so people not so use to smartphones and apps should be able to get a lot of use from it without becoming so confused by features and options present in other apps. It’s free to use, but contains ads.  

To ensure you never misplace an important note or list, you can easily locate anything by making use of the app’s search function. Plus you can create and place widgets on your home screen, which give you quick access to your notes.

In terms of security, you can create a four-digit pin for all your notes, ensuring that sensitive information doesn’t get into the wrong hands. And the app allows you to easily and swiftly import content stored on other devices. Material Notes is free to download, with additional features available as an in-app purchase.

While skilled programmers enter the talent pool daily, high demand makes finding them and securing them for your team a challenge. When your company is on the hunt for programmers, it’s important to employ multiple strategies to locate the industry’s best talent and get them in the door before other companies snap them up.

To help you quickly and reliably locate the best-qualified and highest-performing individuals within the field, 11 members of Forbes Technology Council offer insight into some of the best resources available.

1. Employee Referrals

Without a doubt, employee referrals are the best source for finding candidates. While the right skills and experience are of course important in hiring, the right culture fit is equally important. Team members know the culture and have a sense of who will thrive and who won’t. When employees refer someone, there’s a great chance they will be a good fit in terms of talent and culture. – Joelle Brock, Leading EDJE

2. Your Own Networks

The best success I have had is to tap into my own network as well as those of the best engineers in the company—since they know their work the best, they will be able to recommend engineers from their own network who are often good matches. We have also used LinkedIn as well as Indeed in certain cases and have had decent success. – Brian Sathianathan, Iterate.ai

3. Technology Events

We attend events with like-minded people, such as AWS Lofts, with which we are an advanced technology partner, and Re:Invent, Re:Inforce and Black Hat conferences, where we host a sponsored booth. Also, LinkedIn is actually a great place to visit to find programmers. – Archie Agarwal, ThreatModeler Software, Inc.

4. Training Organizations

Always start by utilizing your professional network. A LinkedIn post overviewing who you’re looking for and asking for connections or recommendations can do a lot more than you’d think! Beyond that, see what local training organizations there are, such as coding boot camps. The graduates of these programs are often very job-ready and hungry to work. – Richard Wang, Coding Dojo

5. Local Tech Community

The best programmers can have their pick of which employer they want to work for. They want to know they will work on interesting tech and have trusted managers and company values that resonate with them. My go-to source is to get my team out into the local tech community to build relationships. When the time comes to hire, we already know who to target. – Kathy Keating, Apostrophe, Inc.

6. Inbound Applications

One of the most neglected sources of great candidates is inbound applications. Most companies ignore this source because there is too much noise and they can’t make sense of it. However, when you cast a wide net and build a solid talent brand, applicants can be a great source of candidates if you know how to measure talent at the very top of the funnel to identify those diamonds in the rough. – Tigran Sloyan, CodeSignal

7. Great Former Employees

The reasons great people leave aren’t always permanent. Changes in leadership, organization structure or even pay scales can mean that they’ll be willing to come back, especially if it’s been more than a year or two. You can’t wait on them to reach out, as they might think it looks desperate. Keep in touch with the great ones anyway—you never know how it might pay off. It’s all about relationships. – Luke Wallace, Bottle Rocket

8. Universities And Academic Institutions

When looking to hire the best tech talent, it might indeed be tempting to post on job boards and work with headhunters. This approach works best for poaching senior programmers. But we’ve had great success in recruiting the best software developers and data scientists at universities by giving tech talks, organizing hackathons and sponsoring awards for coding challenges. – Apurva “Apu” Kumar, LOTaDATA

9. Availability Campaigns

Out of sight means out of mind. What has worked best for us is doing availability campaigns to source better candidates. This creates an image in the candidate’s mind: “This company is in continuous touch with me and when the time comes for my next role, I will reach out to them.” Branding your company is key to attracting better resources. Often, people only reach out when there is a need. – Bhavna Juneja, Infinity, a Stamford Technology Company

10. Job Boards

As a remote company, we use the online job board We Work Remotely to find the best programmers from all over the globe. It has over 2.5 million monthly visitors and is used by companies like Google, Amazon, Basecamp and more. – Thomas Griffin, OptinMonster

11. Dedicated Websites

There are multiple websites—Vettery, rolebot, Hired, etc.—that provide pre-vetted candidates for your technology stack. Sites like Stack Overflow and HackerRank also provide a good way to gauge candidates’ knowledge of your technology stack. Often, it comes down to finding a few good candidates from the pool and then making them go through your own coding exercise to find the perfect tech fit. – Amit Ojha, Green Wave Ingredients .

For app and web developers, the world at the end of the decade is very different to the one that began it. Sure, change is inevitable, but the way the discipline(s) have evolved in just a matter of years (arguably the most significant changes came in the latter half of the decade) is a mark of how technologies, business needs, customer expectations, and harsh economic realities have conspired to shape and remold our notion of what software development actually looks like.

Full-stack, cloud-native, DevOps (and maybe even ‘NoOps’): all these things have been shaping the way app and web developers work over the last ten years. And in 2019 it feels like that new world is beginning to settle into a specific pattern. Many of the trends and technologies that really defined 2019 are, in truth, trends that have been nascent and emerging for a number of years.

Cloud and microservices

When cloud first emerged – at some point much earlier this decade – it was largely just about resource efficiency. The idea was to ditch your on premises servers and move instead to a model whereby you rent server space from big vendors.

Okay, perhaps that’s a somewhat crude summation; but it’s nevertheless the case that cloud was primarily a field dealt with by administrators and IT professionals, rather than developers. Today, of course, cloud is having a very real impact on the way developers work, giving a degree of agility and flexibility in how software is deployed and managed.

With cloud partnering nicely with microservices – which allow developers to break down an application into constituent parts – it’s easy to see how these two trends are getting many app and web developers excited. They shorten the development lifecycle and allow developers to get closer to their code as it runs in production.

The growth of Go and Rust throughout 2019 (okay, and a bit before that too) is directly related to the increasing importance of cloud and microservices in software development. Although JavaScript has been taken beyond the browser, it isn’t the best programming language for building high performance applications; that’s where the likes of Go and Rust have been taking over a not insignificant slice of the collective developer imagination.

Both languages share a similar history (as this article nicely details); at a fundamental level, moreover, both also aim to build on C++, but with accessibility and safety in mind ( C++ has long had a reputation for being both complicated and sometimes vulnerable to bugs and security issues).

Go is likely to continue to grow at a faster rate than Rust: it’s a lot easier to use, so for web and app developers with experience in Java or JavaScript, it’s a much gentler learning curve. But this isn’t to say that Rust won’t remain a fixture for developers. Consistently ranked the ‘most loved’ language in Stack Overflow surveys, as developers seek relentless improvements to performance alongside watertight reliability and security, Rust will remain an important language in a fast-changing development world.

It’s impossible to talk about web and application development without mentioning WebAssembly. Arguably the full implications of WebAssembly are yet to be realised (indeed, at ReactConf 2019, Richard Feldman suggested that it was unlikely to initiate a wholesale transformation of the web – that, he believes, will take a few more years), but 2019 has been a year when it has properly started to make many developers sit up and take notice.

But why is WebAssembly so exciting? Essentially, it allows you to run code on the web using multiple languages at a speed that’s almost akin to native applications. Indeed, WebAssembly is making languages like Rust more attractive to web developers. If WebAssembly is a bridge between Rust and JavaScript, Rust immediately becomes more attractive to developers who previously would have paid very little attention to it.

If 2019 was the year more developers decided to take note of WebAssembly, 2020 will be the year when we start to see increased adoption.

State management: Redux, Flux, Vuex…

For many years, MVC (Model-View-Controller) was the dominant model for managing application state. However, as applications have grown in complexity, it has become more and more difficult for us to establish a ‘single source of truth’ inside our apps.That can impact performance and can also make them harder to maintain on the development side.

To tackle this, we’ve started to see a number of different patterns and frameworks emerging to help us manage application state. The growth of React has been instrumental here – as a very lightweight library it gives developers the freedom to manage application state however they choose – and it’s worth noting that Flux architecture was developed by Facebook to complement the library.

Following Flux we’ve also had Redux and Vuex – all of them, each with subtly different approaches, have become an essential aspect of modern web and app development. And while they might not have first emerged in 2019, it feels as though the state management discourse has hit the heights that it previously has not. If you haven’t yet had time to dive into this topic, it’s well worth making sure you commit to it in 2020.

Functional programming

Functional programming is on the rise. This doesn’t however mean that purely functional languages like Haskell and Lisp are dominating the programming language landscape – in fact, it’s been said that JavaScript is now the language used for functional programming (even though it isn’t a functional language).

Functional programming is popular because it can help minimize complexity and make it easier to test and reuse code. When you’re dealing with a dense codebase that grows and grows as your application scales, this is immensely valuable.

It’s also worth placing functional programming in the context of managing application state. Insofar as functional programming allows you to be specific in determining how different parts of a component should interact with one another – the function is a theoretical abstraction that makes it easier to get to grips with managing the state of a complex and dynamic application.

The new JavaScript framework boom

I’m not sure whether JavaScript fatigue is over. On the one hand the space has coalesced around a handful of core tools and frameworks – React, GraphQL, Node.js, among a couple of others – but on the other hand, the last year (and a bit) have been characterized by many other small projects developed to support these core tools.

So, while it’s maybe a little bit easier to parse the JavaScript ecosystem at pretty high level of abstraction than it was in the past, at a deeper level you have a range of tools that are designed for very specific purposes or to be used alongside some of those frameworks and tools just mentioned.

Tools ranging from Koa.js (for Node), to Polymer, Nuxt, Next, Gatsby, Hugo, Vuelidate (to name just a random assortment) are all vying for developer mindshare. You could say that many of these tools are ‘second-order’ frameworks and libraries – they don’t fundamentally change the way you think about development but instead make it easier to do specific things. It’s for this reason that I’m reluctant to suggest that JavaScript fatigue will return to its former glory – this new JavaScript framework boom is very much geared towards productivity and immediate gains rather than overhauling the way you build applications because of some principled belief in the ‘right’ or ‘best’ way to do things.

GraphQL

Much of this decade has been dominated by REST when it comes to APIs. But just as the so called ‘API economy’ has gone into overdrive, GraphQL has come on the scene. Adoption has been rapid, with many developers turning to it because it allows them to handle more complex and sophisticated requests at scale without writing long and confusing lines of code.

This isn’t to say, of course, that GraphQL has all but killed REST. Instead, it’s more the case that GraphQL has been found to be a better tool for managing APIs in specific domains than REST. If you’re dealing with APIs that are complex in terms of the number of entities and their relationships between one another, then GraphQL can prove immensely useful.

React Hooks (and Vue Hooks)

Launched with React 16.8, React Hooks “let you use state and other React features without writing a class” (that’s from the project’s site). That’s a good thing because building components with a class can sometimes be somewhat inelegant. For a better explanation of the ‘point’ of React Hooks you could do a lot worse than this article.

Vue Hooks is part of Vue 3.0 – this won’t be officially released until early next year. But the fact that both leading front end frameworks are taking similar approaches to improve the developer experience demonstrates that they’re responding to a need for more flexibility and control over large projects. That means 2019 has been the year that both tools have hit maturity in the web development space.

Conclusion

The web and app development world is becoming difficult to parse. A few years ago discussion and debate really centered on frameworks; today it feels like there are many other elements to consider. Part of this is symptomatic of a slow DevOps revolution – the gap between build and production is smaller than it has ever been, and developers now have a significant degree of accountability and responsibility for things that were the preserve of different breeds of engineers and IT professionals.

Perhaps that story is a bit of a simplification – however, it’s hard to dispute that the web and app developer skill set is incredibly diverse. That means there are an array of options and opportunities out there for those developers looking to push their careers forward, but it also means that they’ll need to do some serious decision making about what they want to do and how they want to do it.

IoT is the next big thing in Industry 4.0, and developers and techies from all across the world are already arming themselves with the skills needed to ride this wave. In this article, we list down 10 best programming languages one must know in the coming year to be able to successfully create and deploy projects in IoT.

C/ C++

C and C++ rule the list when it comes to IoT devices. According to the IoT Developers survey, C language secured the first position for constrained devices while C++ secured the second position. These languages are well-known for their portability and most of the micro-controllers for IoT devices support these languages for computing. 

PHPoC

PHPoC (PHP on Chip) is a programming language and an IoT hardware platform which is developed based on widely-used PHP language. This makes the language not only a Web development language but also the general-purpose programming language for IoT. The syntax is almost the same as PHP and it inherits almost all the core functions from PHP. Further, PHPoC adds new functions which are used to interact with hardware peripherals such as I/O, UART, I2C, SPI, ADC, TIMER/COUNTER, RTC and much more.

Rust

Rust programming language was introduced as an alternative to the C language. C and C++ are common programming languages for IoT devices due to their fine-grained memory management and low runtime overhead. Similarly, Rust is also a memory-safe system programming language which also provides low runtime overhead and fine-grained

memory management. It is a systems programming language with strong safety guarantees which prevents memory corruption and has the potential to solve the problems that can occur when using C language.

Frontend will meet DevOps as competencies shift

How people interact with a website is no longer just a marketing concern. The user interface is now critical application code and it contains core business logic. This shift in application importance means frontend development teams will start to look more like product teams as development and operations merge.

These teams are deploying their own code and making changes so rapidly that they are often moving too fast for separate operations teams to have the full context to mitigate application errors. We will see these frontend teams become more generalized in their skillsets and become responsible for development, testing, and operations as the process becomes a continuous cycle of integration and delivery. These teams will be on call for incidents and interacting more with monitoring tools to ensure uptime. Those writing JavaScript are going to learn about getting paged in the middle of the night.

Tool and framework frenzy will continue; Fatigue will worsen

The plethora of tools, languages, and frameworks are adding massive complexity to the application development ecosystem. IT teams are challenged to interconnect these disparate languages and platforms to build applications that are the lifeblood of business in today’s digital economy.

While conference halls echo with cries of tool and framework fatigue, there will not be a clear resolution in 2020. In fact, there will likely be more disruption. Although it seems React.js is approaching victory for frontend development, there are still a number of viable competitors ready to shake things up. On the backend, there is still no standardization, in spite of significant innovation in recent years. PHP, Ruby, Python, Node.js, Java, and .Net are all in use—but there is no clear winner and that won’t change in 2020. As teams struggle to connect it all, even more tools—many of which will be open source—will emerge to integrate technologies, but the challenges of complexity and control will get worse before they get better.

JavaScript will win the language debate and emerge as the glue for modern apps

Today, there is no one true programming language choice for building a modern web application, but as the battle for the frontend rages, JavaScript is growing in popularity. Over the next few years, we will see a clear shift toward JavaScript universally becoming the language choice for user interfaces on every platform.

More tools will emerge and adapt for frontend specific applications and JavaScript will be the glue that connects it all.

Pendulum swings back towards consolidation

In recent years, innovation has revealed a host of new tools from big vendors, startups and open source projects, each promising to tackle the next big issue. But it is challenging to maintain compliance and controls when cobbling together a heterogeneous mix of technology at different maturity levels.

And while the next decade will certainly bring more innovation, we can also expect the proverbial pendulum to begin swinging back toward consolidation of platforms and tools as overwhelmed IT teams look for ways to simplify their stacks and reduce risk. Vendors offering universal solutions that span multiple platforms and integrate seamlessly into enterprise environments will continue to see adoption. While companies may continue to offload infrastructure management to third parties—cloud vendors, SaaS providers, and others—in an effort to refocus their resources on building the business, there will be a lagging interest in new tools that offer just the 1% value add.

Engineering concerns will align with user concerns, changing how we monitor applications

As we invest more in user interfaces—which will increasingly become the actual application—we will see engineering concerns more closely align with customer concerns, which means a lot of our tooling and accountability will also shift.

We will need to monitor more than just backend server availability. We will need to monitor how the customer interacts with the product and business because each application iteration can impact user experience, whether positively or negatively. When development teams have a more comprehensive understanding of user interactions and application performance, they can more effectively build applications that drive business value.
