5 Technologies That Might Turn Startups into Multibillion-Dollar Ventures
Despite its stagnant appearance, the world is about to be hit by a massive way of digital transformation and technology-driven economic change eventually leaving us with two options, either ride that wave into a new era of prosperity…or be swept away by the wave. In the following post, you will come across five most dazzling technologies available in the “Golden Age” and how they might earn you a big fortune. Whether you are listed among the fortune 500 companies or a startup, these technologies can surely give you a head-start in your career. Go through them in order to satisfy your inner desire for doing any innovation in the world. Java Launched in 1995, Java is mainly used to develop Client-server web applications, J2EE web and enterprise applications all across the globe. Highly rich in APIs, Java offers API for I/O, networking, utilities, XML parsing, database connection, and almost everything. Online community- It comprises of a huge community from javaworld.com, oracle.com, javacodegeeks.com and many other popular sites. In addition to this, Java can even go for Android-based mobile application development. Well-known sites such as @LinkedIn, @Amazon, @Facebook ( @HBase, a java based #NoSQL DB), @EBay, @Googleplus, @Gtalk are powered by @Java. As of now, there are approx. 9 million Java developers. Python @Python was launched in 1994, a tool mainly used for web crawler development and data analysis. From @Microsoft Windows to #MacOSX, @Linux, and many other operating systems and devices, Python even works as a service. In fact, it is considered as one of the fastest growing fan base in past 10 years and has obviously increased in demand. It also has a diverse community support including python.org. Other than crawler development and data analysis, Python is used for small-form devices, such as the Raspberry Pi. In addition to this, the technology runs on microcontrollers — small, low-powered chips designed to run on embedded devices, appliances, remote controls and toys. Google, Facebook, YouTube, Yahoo Maps, Yahoo Groups, Bing, Reddit, Dropbox are some of the known companies making use of the technology. Android One of my favorites is Android! Launched in September 2008, Android is a mobile operating system based on Linux kernel and currently developed by Google. In the current scenario, there were total 1.5 million Android apps available with over 25 billion downloads. Further speaking about the development process, applications are usually developed in Java programming with the help of the Android software development kit (SDK). It is simply an open source operating system staked by Google, developed to run on any small electronic devices such as cell phones, tablets, e-books, netbooks, Media Internet Devices (MID). The hardware is developed by many different companies from all across the globe with famous brand names such as Samsung, Motorola, Sony, Dell, LG, HTC, Acer, etc. It is no surprise that the technology has a giant size community in the form of developers.android.com, androidcommunity.com. iOS Launched a decade ago, IOS is another leading mobile operating system created and developed by Apple Inc. and distributed exclusively for Apple hardware. Presently, it powers many of the company’s mobile devices, including the iPhone, Mac, Apple watch, iPad, and iPod touch. If we take a closer look at the current demand for IOS developers, it is increasing on the rapid basis. Owing to huge opportunities in eLearning, social networking, warehouse management, order fulfillment, orthodontia, accounting, consumer analytics, gaming, and image, data, and video analysis, the technology has major community support in the form of discussions.apple.com, enterpriseios.com. NodeJS Launched 27 may, 2009, NodeJS is an open source, cross-platform run-time environment for server-side and networking applications. The technology offers an event-driven architecture and a non-blocking I/O API that optimizes an application’s throughput and scalability. Commonly used for real-time web applications, the technology can also be run within Node.js runtime on OS X, Microsoft Windows, Linux, FreeBSD, NonStop, IBM AIX, IBM System z and IBM I. Companies involved: LinkedIn, PayPal, Netflix, New York Times. Due to healthy online community support has given rise to several NodeJS development companies like eTatvaSoft, theninehertz, espeo, itexus and many more worldwide. AS of now, there are tens of thousands of job requirements for the same. The demand for node JS is increasing at an exponential rate especially in the last five years. Final thoughts Just by looking at where we are today, we can already see how powerful technology has been in shaping our world. The introduction of new-fangled pieces of knowledge especially in the field of software development has radically altered this world in so many ways. Which eventually becomes even more evident in the continuous development of forward-looking devices and systems that people before never knew could exist.
