The software developer of the future is going to look much different than what we've become accustomed to, as rapidly-evolving educational modalities and new technologies that increase the velocity of shipping code are becoming available to anyone and everyone. We are at an inflection point where technology, society, and culture are removing the barriers to entry that used to constrain developers. The result is a more diverse, creative, and high-output workforce. Here are four trends that I predict will continue to shift the day-to-day life of the software developer in 2021 and beyond ...

The adoption of Cloud Native Architecture and use of microservices is starting to take off and Kubernetes is at the forefront of the technologies enabling this trend. However, while Kubernetes provides you with many features that make deploying and running microservices easy, there are few additional services that need to be enabled in order for developers/devops to be productive and make applications maintainable. Logging is one such vital service ...

Think of the DevSecOps (Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery or CI/CD) pipeline as the highway. Think of containers as a Tesla. A logical person would never dream of having a concrete mixer work on their new Tesla. Nor would they ask their Tesla mechanic to lay the foundation for the road in front of their home.
