Top 6 Software Development Trends Predictions in 2019

Posted on January 19, 2019 by in General

The previous year has observed a substantial growth throughout the mobile app development trade, but 2019 is anticipated to be further innovative. It’s a well-known fact that we live in a world that is fast moving towards technological developments every moment. 2019, the last teen year for the rest of the century needs to have some importance when it comes to standing out in the technological development era.

Technology keeps growing as per the requirement of the user. Though it gets outdated, it is always useful in the future to know how the bugs should be resolved. Technology growth enables both change and progress in the user techniques and development of technology.

This year is anticipated to bring us the following fresh batch of software development trends.

     1. Programming Languages Come Back!

Experts have noted the process of primary functional programming language bouncing back as far as 2019 is concerned. But the trend forthwith continues to change the field of software development, and in 2019 it will seemingly grow even more established.

When it comes to programming languages, emphasis will place on tasks such as parallel computing support, qualitative error checking during the compilation process, and providing a compressed and expressive syntax.

Programming Languages

The programming language first developed by Konrad Zuse which is a high-level programming language known as Plankalkül, from 1942 to 1945 with a compiler programmed by Corrado Böhm in 1951.

The advanced programming language Cloud Computing was already existing as a technology, but it took a while to come into use as the bugs kept coming and the issues had to be resolved.

  1. Artificial Intelligence driven development

All through 2018, there was a clear trend of a rise in the platforms, applications, and tools based on Artificial Intelligence. These technologies have not only impacted the Internet and the software industry but also other sectors such as manufacturing, automobile, healthcare, legal, and agriculture.

AI-driven development is a blending of the best tools, technologies, and practices to build AI-equipped development tools and the incorporation AI into applications and software. The rapidly developing technology of AI grants significant development opportunities that a lot of companies have already been ready to grab.

Artificial Intelligence

Modern infrastructure and applications are producing recorded data which is captured for searching, indexing, and analytics. These massive data sets are obtained from the operating systems, server software, hardware, and application software. They can be correlated and aggregated to get insights and models. IT operations modify from being reactive to predictive while machine learning models are applied to these data sets.

  1. Blockchain Technology

Blockchain Technology

The blockchain technology is making a strong case for the future with various use cases. A few of its other uses are the distribution of resources, smart contracts, identity management, healthcare data, and supply chain management. The blockchain technology also facilitates the authentication of numerous large-scale transactions in seconds; one can anticipate businesses to cut their costs by employing it to the whole supply chain while streamlining the processes. There is an anticipation of the constant growth of this technology to happen in 2019.

The blockchain is a remarkable invention. Blockchain development will be not only about cryptocurrencies or crypto exchanges in 2019, but it will change the aspect of the healthcare and finance industries. Gartner analysts have published in their recent Trend Insight Report that “the blockchain revolution promises to touch every industry.”

  1. Cybersecurity

Cybersecurity

Hacking is the most common cyber threat all through the world with a new technique every day but is given insignificant importance. As the technology doesn’t seem to be emerging though it has been around for a while evolving as other techniques.

The evil hackers will never give up on hacking the data and get access illegally. They even continue to get through the most robust security measures. According to an expert, one of the three advancements to modify security are hardware authentication, cloud technology, and deep learning. Cybersecurity will be existent till we have hackers. Another that adds to the list is the data loss prevention and behavioral analytics.

  1. Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality

Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality

To enhance the use with environment  Augment Reality(AR) and to immerse the user in an environment Virtual Reality(VR) is used. Primarily, VR was used for gaming and also for training with VirtualShip.

VirtualShip is used to train Navy, Army, and Coast Guard Ship captains in the USA as it is simulation software. The famous game that went viral during the year 2017-2018 is and the perfect example of Pokemon Go.

The Virtual and Augmented Realities have tremendous potential in education, marketing, training, entertainment, and for injuries in the rehabilitation center. In the top reputed hospitals, these are used for trained doctors to do surgery and for deeper experience at the museum-goers too.

  1. Edge Computing

 Edge Computing

The major player Amazon Web Services(AWS) has become mainstream with Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud dominating the market. With more and more migration of business to a cloud solution, there is a growth in cloud computing. Edge Computing has taken over Cloud Computing, so no longer cloud computing is emerging.

The bugs of cloud computing have been realized as the quantity of data that are being dealt with started to increase. Edge computing was developed to overcome the flaws in cloud computing with better features and process with a way to bypass the latency caused and getting data to the data center for the procedure.

Conclusion

 As organizations go through the digital transformation, they also expect a potential to increase their exposure to risk. It seems like the two most important resolutions for the year 2019, is enhancing security and eradicating susceptibilities of development. The technology industry is now leading towards achieving more holistic and user-centric services that help satisfy customer expectations. The investment in technology holds the solution to advancement. However, it is a difficult proposition to predict trends in technology. Considering the relentless global competition and the accelerated speed of technological innovations, Osmosys plans and utilizes developing technologies to keep your business protected and at the vanguard of the industry.

GitLab – Recovering from a corrupted database record

Posted on May 17, 2018 by in General

Introduction

One of the most terrifying thing for a Database administrator to come across is a corrupted database.

Corrupted Database

A database corruption can be defined as a problem associated with the improper storage of the 0’s and 1’s that you need to store on the disk in order to access your data.

Despite the usefulness of the relational databases, they are prone to corruption, which results in the inaccessibility of some or all the data in the database.

More than 95% of corruption happens due to hardware failure. Among the remaining 5% we have,

Prevent iOS from zooming in on input fields

Posted on January 5, 2017 by in General, iOS, Mobile Technologies

Developing a responsive website that works well across various browsers and devices is tough. The difficulty is compounded by the fact that browser vendors keep adding distinct behaviors to improve user experience. We recently faced an issue with the auto zoom-in feature in Safari on iOS. 

Auto-clearing browser cache after deployments

Posted on July 13, 2016 by in General

Majority of web developers have had to, one time or the other, ask their users or the test engineer to clear their cache before validating a change. Browsers’ cache static resources like JavaScript and CSS, and load them from their cache to improve page load speed. Hence your latest modifications won’t apply until the end user clears their browser’s cache. We’ve been using a technique that allows us to refresh the browser cache automatically without asking our users to do so.

Gridster

Posted on June 24, 2015 by in General

Traditional web applications or portals have navigation in the form of menus (with dropdown options), toolbars or accordion etc. While each have their own pros and cons, none of them provide an UI similar to desktop.

Imagine showcasing the navigation options in one massive gird based gallery? Impress the visitors with a unique UI where the content is laid out creatively. Enter Gridster and all this becomes a reality where the UI is tile based (similar to Windows 8) and users can play with each widget/tile. Users can reposition the tiles/widgets to suit their preference using Gridster’s drag-and-drop feature.

Cross Site Scripting

Posted on February 28, 2013 by in General

Cross Site Scripting (or XSS) is a type of security vulnerability typically found in Web Applications. XSS allows hackers to inject client side scripts written in a language like JavaScript, VBScript into Web Pages that is then viewed by other users. According to Symantec’s records (2007) XSS accounted for nearly 84% of all security vulnerabilities.

Getting Files Out of GAC

Posted on November 15, 2010 by in General

DLLs once deployed in GAC (normally located at c:\windows\assembly) can’t be viewed or used as a normal DLL file. They can’t be directly referenced from VS project. Developers usually keep a copy of the original DLL file and refer to it in the project at development (design) time, which uses the assembly from GAC during run-time of the project.
