Cybersecurity reaches the highest point
Last year did not pass well for security on the web, and there was leaking information on many levels. One of the biggest scandals we witnessed was the election hacking fiasco. All the resources for development will be going for new solutions in the field of security. This security initiative can be divided into two categories: Internal and external.
There are predictions that the security software developers will be the developers of our generation, and who has skill in developing software for security will be highly paid next year.
Artificial intelligence and all the benefits from AI
Every businessman now needs to accept that they must have artificial intelligence in their business to stay relevant. For example, voice-activated home assistants, Insight-as-a-Service vendors, and smartphones are ready for big results in work with artificial intelligence. Leaders in this field will be data scientists and Chief Data Officers (CDO), and they will sat on that throne for many years from now.
According to scientists from these fields, results of the work with artificial intelligence will be all over the business and will reach many other things in the science. Many people think that artificial intelligence can even change the world landscape.

These apps are very useful because you have the mobile experience with the latest browser technology, isn’t it brilliant. First of all, Google has begun this trend, developing the browser that performs like mobile apps. Of course, you have the same level of experience. For the process of development, PWAs are not complex, and that is the main reason for their popularity.
