I recently had the opportunity to speak with Brian LeRoux, Principal Product Manager at Adobe, about trends that he is seeing from within the developer community. In recent times Adobe has invested heavily in HTML5 tools and technologies such as the Edge suite and PhoneGap. They have also made a concerted push to open these technologies to the community.
It was not surprising therefore that Brian’s trends focused around the topic of web development which is perhaps broader than it has ever been. Encompassing the browser, server and devices and increasingly organising into processes familiar to traditional software development.
- Mobile web versus native development
- Frontend Ops (or WebOps)
- Node.js development within the enterprise
