  • One rule to follow when assessing a technology is that it is no longer “new” once IBM makes a television commercial about it. This means if there is no compelling use case for something by the time IBM starts advertising about it, then there will never be one.

The InfoQ Trends Reports 2022 | 5 min - 1 h | InfoQ Blog

This report has separate segments (in the links below you will find key takeaways from each of them):

You will discover some individual trends listed on multiple reports, sometimes with differing adoption levels. For example, cloud-native development and gRPC are in the earlier stages of adoption within the .NET community, compared to software architecture and cloud development in general.

Data is a major component on several trend reports, beyond AI, ML & Data Engineering. The Architecture & Design report described "data plus architecture" as the need for software architecture to adapt to consider data. The DevOps and Clouds report had data observability as a critical need. Data mesh also showed up in multiple reports.

2022 Year in Review: ADRs, Staff Plus, Platforms, Sustainability, and Culture Design | 39 min | Platforms | Thomas Betts, Wes Reisz, Shane Hastie, Srini Penchikala & Daniel Bryant | InfoQ Podcast

A few takeaways:
  • The architect is a technical leader. A vitally important part of the architect’s role is communicating decisions effectively. Architecture decision records (ADRs) are not a new concept, but increasingly we are seeing companies adopt them and make them standard practice.
  • Creating effective software development and delivery platforms, using DevOps and platform engineering practices, can help reduce developer cognitive load and increase positive business outcomes (with regards to DORA metrics). Matthew Skelton’s and Manuel Pais’ book, "Team Topologies", is the gold standard here.
