What do you think are the most exciting developments in software product engineering today?
This is part of my series of interview questions for Agile India 2022. Thinking about exciting developments in software development as a developer immediately brings magpies to mind. What is the latest technology that can grab our attention. What’s the latest shiny? Could it be some crypto tech? Some no-code development? Or programming in the metaverse maybe? No, no, and NO!
