Far from replacing software developers,
“Generative AI is reshaping all kinds of knowledge work, including creating and delivering software solutions faster, better and at lower cost with AI-driven tools and techniques,” said
Highlighted themes in Technology Radar Vol. 29 include:
- AI-assisted software development: Tools such as Github Copilot, Codeium and Tabnine are set to have an impact on the way software developers think about writing code. However, one key point of consideration is how AI can be used for tasks beyond coding, such as writing user stories.
How productive is measuring productivity? Measuring productivity in the sphere of software development isn't a new concern (
ThoughtworksChief Scientist Martin Fowlerwrote about it 20 years ago). A number of tools, such as DX DevEX 360, aim to improve the developer experience and point the way forward for supporting developer productivity.
- A large number of LLMs: While the space is largely defined by the contributions of a handful of key players — OpenAI’s ChatGPT, Google's Bard, Meta's LLaMA — of particular interest are trends such as self-hosted LLMs and LLM-powered autonomous agents which point towards greater customization and control over what can be done with GenAI.
- Remote delivery workarounds mature: It's clear that remote ways of working are now here to stay. Fortunately, we've seen a number of tools and techniques — such as remote event storming — that suggest we're beginning to see more maturity and stability as teams get used to working in a remote or hybrid manner.
