The Internet of Things (IoT)
It's hard to imagine having 25 billion devices connected to the Internet without having apps that make it easy to manage an individual's computers and toaster ovens. One quarter of the 2020 devices will be tablets, smartphones, and other mobile instruments. The other three quarters of the connected devices will be home electronic products plus healthcare and insurance industry devices.
It could be a bit too early to start designing IoT apps. But it might be a good use of software developers' time to stay current with this growing movement. It will have a huge impact on the software development industry in the coming decades.
