The future of software development is Open Source, blockchain, and other themes

Chad Fowler, General Manager of Developer Advocacy at Microsoft and well known figure in the software world, recently gave a talk entitled The Future Of Software Development. Chad is described as an internationally known software developer, trainer, manager, speaker, and musician. The talk was given at Agile India 2019. He shows how we are still programming in old ways, using approaches developed over 30 years ago. “Many of the most forward-thinking paradigms, practices, and technologies are based on concepts and even implementations created decades ago.” He has some really interesting perspectives on where we are and where we are going. For example, we are building a real distributed operating system that is open source.
