8 future predictions of Java world
GPU Successor of CPU
CPU in those days were considered as an asset and one possessing it boasted as if they had everything in this world. But today even the best CPU in US $ is rarely more than 200. What do you think will be the case with GPU (Graphic Processing Unit)? It’s nearly 500 or 600. And today my friend it’s totally about gaming. Gamers just boast about the power of their GPU cards but they don’t even bother about CPU
There is a steady progress in world to catch up with the current trend. GPUs are used plenty of softwares today. Yeah it’s true that there were some inherently graphical processes, like the Web browsers. There are a variety of applications for different areas like Physics for studying matter, Chemistry for reactions, Astronomers for galaxy stimulations, biologists for population studies.
Soon better compilers will make it possible to write code and let the compiler detect when it can run effectively on the GPU.
Awesome database performance
When “database” came into existence people stopped being “programmers” and hooked up with “database users.” Actually databases are more efficient at handling data than anything a normal human programmer can create, especially under pressure. They have their expertise in RAM and juggling with memory hierarchy. Data Entry and maintaining records in the Databases is the most effective means of dealing with data and there is going to be an improvement in this field as well
Simple extraction of information from the database and delivering it to a “big data” package will turn out to be a tedious job. Data in the database is set free and its engine will perform the analysis which will be much faster because it will reduce work load and it will be smarter enough then what we have now
The mainframe will possess COBOL. Biologists will hang out with Python. Linux will be coded in C.
Android will be Omnipresent
Android today is applied in the equipments like refrigerators, car stereos, watches, televisions, even headphones. Unfortunately there has always been a complaint about the complexity of UI because it can do too much, but that’s missing the point. If Android is running underneath, the platform will dominate.
It’s going to get even more complicated. PC manufacturers are looking at the expanding tablet world and feeling left out. They want to run Android on Windows and let people use their Android apps on their desktops, too.
Adverse effects of Android (and Linux) conquering the world is that more and more objects will be joining the Internet of things. Android on your refrigerator will lead to the opportunity code generation for the refrigerator itself, some calorie-counting options, or a recipe suggestion engine for what’s left inside the ice box. Who knows?
Car will be the next invention. We mean automated cars which will be a great demand in the market especially for Java developers.
Success of open source stacks like Android, Ubuntu, or MySQL, there remains a sticky problem with finding the revenue to support development. A demonstration version under an open source license is provided by the vast majority of open source companies. The best open source projects will find a way to tighten the screws in a comfortable way without scaring away customers.
Plug INS as a replace
There are many web apps riding the power of code snippets other than basic apps that can be plugged into a bigger framework. Photoshop used to be the dominant engine for editing the images, in part because of the fertile world of plug-ins. Now the newer apps like Magic Hour have made plug-ins easier for access. Even filters can be shared just like they share photos by Magic Hours user.
Long live the command line
Although there are working apps, a mind blowing amount of work is still done in text editors and terminal windows. The command line will not be vanished don’t worry. In fact, more and more modern tools will work only with the command line. The fact is, command lines are too flexible and too universal to be replaced. Pretty GUIs with amazing interfaces and drag-and-drop widgets may get attention, but the programmers keep returning to text.
