When will today's software development tools and technologies become dinosaurs? It may be sooner than you think. Complexity in software development is reaching critical mass. Microsoft's newest technologies are making current conceptual models of development obsolete.
Given these recent changes, how can you chart your professional development? And how can you adapt your tools to increasing complexity in software? Previous cycles of change in software development can provide some answers to these questions. Examining new dev models from Google to Ruby offer additional clues. Billy Hollis outlines his take on this new era of software development and tells you how to prepare for it.
