Chatbots will also be in great demand. Mobile and desktop online stores will use such tools even more actively. One of the important aspects related to software development concerns popular programming languages. For those who follow the trends, it will not be a surprise that we will see JavaScfbisuript again in the top. It is optimal for the development of not only the desktop but mobile applications. This tool remains popular, in part due to the libraries/frameworks:
Also among the current programming languages will be Python. More and more developers are paying attention to it. This is not strange, because the tool has a number of fairly significant advantages. In Python, it's convenient not only to work on creating a project but also to support it. A medium-sized business using IT services should pay attention to it.

Regardless of the purpose for which a specialist is studying code, the modern field of software development requires skills related to writing clean code. Industry expert Oana Burtz explains this trend with understandable and practical reasons. Other specialists will not experience difficulties in maintenance-friendly and clean code. It is easy to maintain and advantageous for filling with new functionality. This promotes successful development.
There are discussions about what should be understood by clean code. Signs in which experts agree are as follows:
- accessibility in understanding;
- ease in modifications;
- simplicity at the testing stage;
- correct work.
If a developer can write code with comments that are understandable to colleagues, this opens up great perspectives for him. In 2019, the demand for such specialists will further increase. They will have excellent opportunities to work on high-paying projects.
Return of functional programming
Experts noted this process as far back as 2018, but now the trend continues to influence the sphere. And in 2019 it will probably become even more entrenched. Expert Jordan Bach, who works in the DevOps engineering industry, says that programming languages are already defined in this category. Emphasis will be placed on tasks such as:
- providing a compressed and expressive syntax;
- qualitative error checking during the compilation process;
- parallel computing support.
Although this programming area is related to advanced technologies, it also provides the following languages:
There are a number of other tools that are characteristic of this trend in programming. As for the signs by which it is recognized, among them:
- Combining of clean functions.
- Preference by specialists not imperative, but declarative approach.
- Avoiding such things as: shared distance, side effects, mutable data.
