Coding Skills Trends (July 2022)

Coding skills are in demand, but companies want more from technology professionals ( (July 26, 2022)

‘Upfront work in technical projects are ‘shifting left’ — with more emphasis on planning, business use case analysis, architecture, and design.’

‘Cloud and low-code/no-code technologies are accelerating the push to move IT, managers, and professionals, upstairs — and with good reason.’…

.. In today’s market, “There’s an expectation for software engineers to have worked with a cloud provider, have an understanding of the services and how they interact with each other,” … “If you’re moving to a true DevOps model, your software engineers are building and supporting the infrastructure as much as they are building the applications for your customers.”

.. At the same time, it’s too early to discount the need for highly technical skills — which is still insatiable across many companies. “When it comes to roles that will be more prominent, expect software developers to become more needed,” ..

Jones added that technical skills are in demand, including frameworks such as React, Angular, and Vue.js for front-end development, and knowledge of serverless functions such as AWS Lambda. “Being able to spin up serverless functions or leverage them in spikey traffic scenarios is a great skill to have,” he observed.

Serverless is a key skill area, and another is containerization. “Containerization  — the dev side of DevOps — is critical,” ..  “Being able to build and integrate microservices into DevOps lifecycles with critical components like automatic feature rollouts with zero downtime and container health checks is a skill that has more versatility across organizations who are using Kubernetes in production today.  At the same time, the demand for security specialists continues to grow, particularly those with experience hardening Kubernetes environments. These roles require a broad knowledge of security and systems coupled with a deep understanding of containers and Kubernetes.”

Also: DevOps nirvana is still a distant goal for many, survey suggests

While much of the application and system plumbing will move to the cloud and automated environment, Padgett predicted that “there still will be a strong need for provisioning, systems management, and applications management, as these skills will still be primarily performed by IT staff.”

Technology professionals should keep looking upward within their businesses” technology decision-making chains for long-term career planning advancement. “Things will be moving away from detailed, line-level coding in Java and other languages and move more towards low-code and no-code solutions,” Padgett predicted. There continues to be an ongoing need for skills such as Java and Python, “And with a shortage of skilled technical staff, these positions will still garner higher salaries and stronger demand,” he explained. “But over time, both of these will decrease as low-code and no-code solutions take a greater percentage of the application portfolio. Increased skills in systems analysis and business analysis will be needed to be able to provide the growth for low/no code solutions.”

Increasingly, technical project and product life cycles “will have more emphasis on the upfront work — planning, business use case analysis, architecture and design,” said Padgett. “This is more about moving the work to the left end of the project and produce lifecycle, and moving the upfront tasks over build and implementation.”
