Low-Code Platform Adoption Gets a Boost from Digital Transformation
"When asked just about low-code platforms in May 2018, only 23% of 3,228 developers surveyed worldwide by Forrester were using them, but another 22% planned to do so in the next year. The growth predicted in that survey appears to have come to fruition according to the more recent OutSystems data. Another survey of 254 IT and business decision makers responsible for digital transformation initiatives at large enterprises, conducted by Forrester on behalf of Appian, found that among 84% have implemented a low-code development tool or platform to handle a portion of application development. While this is close to the Evans Data finding, the adoption rate would likely be lower if it was only asked of smaller companies that do not have digital transformation initiatives."

The Evolving Role of the Modern Developer
"Today’s software is getting better, but it’s because of developers who partner with product to understand and empathize with users. Developers who don’t understand this will find themselves increasingly left behind. The modern developer will stop writing code in a vacuum and seek a detailed understanding of what the customer really wants to accomplish with their brand. To do this, the developer will play an active role in communicating with the customer success team — perhaps even participate in Customer Advisory Board meetings — to get a better understanding of their needs and what keeps them up at night."

Open Source Investment: Show Me the Money (and Time)
"The battle for open source acceptance has been won. The next battle is creating a sustainable funding mechanism for open source developers. Companies that have created open source business models are facing challenges as companies like Amazon Web Services provide services based on OSS projects. Yet, public shaming like seen in the tweet below will not change this phenomenon. Instead, large cloud customers may be able to generate more open source investment by cloud providers if there is proof that involvement in projects has a demonstrable impact on service quality."

This Week in Programming: The End of the API Economy (As We Know It)?
"As ProgrammableWeb cautions at the end of its article, “should you be considering creating or investing in a company that depends on using or providing an API to do business, you’ll do well to think long and hard about what you’re doing. Given the current state of affairs, an API provider can bring your business to a grinding halt because of an arbitrary whim.”

No Testing, No Documentation, No Problem?
"These days, the ideas of “No Testing” and “No Documentation” are seeing a resurgence in the agile-focus development community.

What exactly are these trends? Quite literally, they are software development without testing or documentation. But this is an intentional decision, not in the too-common way that you run out of time and/or budget to do proper testing or to write good documentation."

What Spotify Learned From the Flop of its App Store
"Or better yet, what happened after the app platform stumble? And did their change to “speeding through failure” actually work? Frödin told us they built a Web API, which enabled them to “build a lot of interesting stuff for our users and internally,” as the API enables them to have a lot of flexibility for rapid change."

Are you a 10x Programmer? Or Just a Jerk?
"Not every 10x programmer is a jerk. Far from it, Brown stipulated. But a manager that allows a super-developer to run amok over colleagues is not doing the project any favors in the long run."

Deep Learning Demystified
"It does sound expensive and complicated, but the value of understanding the value of deep learning is invaluable. Deep learning is what makes big data more than a buzzword. Machine learning and its deeper cousin are what will give you competitive insights into your customers and then allow you to turn that into drilled-down campaigns. Deep learning has a computer learning patterns and recognizing habits that take millions in market research at which to make educated guesses."

How APIs and Artificial Intelligence Help Democratize Election Information
"“Anything is kind of fair game. It’s all about thinking about what the use case is and finding the API that works for that,” Hathaway said. “It’s interesting to see the speed that AI and machine learning are beginning to operate. It used to take a long time to get a large data set. But with all the deep learning capabilities and advances being made, it’s getting faster and faster in time to value.”

What’s in Store for 2015: A Few Predictions - by @sogrady
"It is equally true, however, that building an open source company is inherently more challenging than building one around proprietary software. This has led to the creation of a variety of complicated monetization mechanisms, which attempt to recreate proprietary margins while maintaining the spirit of the underlying open source project. Of these, open core has emerged as the most common. In this model, a company maintains an open source “core” while layering on premium, proprietary components."

Why The Node.js Summit Didn't Solve Node's Underlying Problems
"Node.js, the popular JavaScript framework for building Web applications, has had a rough couple of months.

On the one hand, the thriving open source project has been adopted by some seriously established companies, including Walmart and Netflix. On the other, its developers are at odds over how and how fast to move its technical development forward—so much so that the conflict has literally split Node into two competing projects."
