IT Career Trends to keep an eye out for; Geeks4learning


What is certain is that the future is uncertain. It is, therefore, difficult (if not counter-productive) to try and plan in detail for the potential changes that might affect the ICT industry in the years to come. What is important, however, is to stay up to date with what is new and how to adapt to it.

Gordon (2008) defines a trend as a sequential pattern of change in recorded data change evidenced by a rise or fall of variables when measured between at least two points over time. Trends are likely to affect the quantity and quality of jobs that are available, as well as how and by whom they will be carried out. Driven by these trends, the future of work will no doubt offer unparalleled opportunities. New technologies and new markets will generate new and more productive jobs.

Here are the top five languages we’re offering and how they can benefit you:

  1. JavaScript is a powerful language that can be used to create interactive web applications, build server-side programs, and even create mobile and desktop apps. With the rise of technologies such as React and Angular, it’s never been easier to create complex, powerful web applications.
  2. C# is a versatile language that can be used to develop Windows desktop applications, mobile apps, and backend services. With the release of .NET 5, C# can also be used to create cross-platform applications and it is also the primary language used to develop on the Unity game engine.
  3. TypeScript is a super set of JavaScript and adds optional static typing to the language. Developed and maintained by Microsoft, it is designed for large-scale applications, and can be used in any environment that JavaScript can run in, such as web browsers, Node.js, and mobile development with frameworks like React Native.
  4. Python is a powerful language that can be used in many areas such as web development, scientific computing, data analysis, and artificial intelligence. With a large and active community, Python has a wide range of libraries and frameworks that make it easy to perform complex tasks with minimal code.
  5. Java is a mature and widely-used language that is known for its reliability, scalability, and cross-platform compatibility. Java has been used for many years in enterprise software development, as well as for developing Android mobile apps.
