Using data from the courses its users signed up to during 2019, the company explained that businesses should take notice of these trends in order to understand the upcoming skills priorities in the IT landscape.
It will also help firms stay more competitive and help developers ensure they have the right skills to find jobs in the tech world, Pluralsight explained.
35% of those learning through Pluralsight’s platform watched at least one course about a top ten technology. This is a significant proportion of the training platform’s users and illustrates that although new languages are surfacing, those traditional subjects remain to be in demand.
“What surprised us this year, is that Microsoft Flow and PowerApps feature so highly. They are both fundamental to a growing trend that empowers non-programmers to create automations that often go on to become mission-critical to a business,” Farrington added.
The company doesn’t think the split of leading technologies will change much in the coming 12 months, but this doesn’t mean businesses shouldn’t disregard up and coming languages wither.
“Enterprises should keep in mind that if you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got,” Farrington added. “Organisations wanting to stand out from the competition should certainly test the waters with new approaches to software development. It could be the difference between success and failure in the year ahead.”
