TECHNOLOGY RADAR VOL.18 : Insights into the technology and trends shaping the future

Every six months or so, ThoughtWorks publishes its Technology Radar, based on ThoughtWorks’ observations, conversations and frontline experiences solving its clients’ toughest business challenges, includes both existing and nascent technologies. The report divides trends into four groups covering Techniques, Platforms, Tools and Languages & Frameworks, with each area further broken down into a recommendation to Hold, Assess, Trial or Adopt.

We’re excited to announce that Volume 18 of the Technology Radar is now available. Notable themes we are highlighting this time around are:

- Browser Bulks Up, Server Slims Down
- Creeping Cloud Complexity
- Trust Teams but Verify
- 𝚝𝚑𝚒𝚗𝚐𝚜 Evolve

The Radar sets out the changes that we think are currently interesting in software development - things in motion that we think you should pay attention to and consider using in your projects. Join us as ThoughtWorks Brisbane Market Tech Principal Minna Yao and Evan Bottcher – from the global ThoughtWorks Technology Advisory Board (TAB) that develop the Radar – discuss these trends and others.
