Based on Frank Holman’s article on software development trends in 2021
It is without a doubt that it has been a rough and difficult path for all of us in some way or another, due to the pandemic, but we’ve come a long way since. Currently the number of positive cases has dropped by 29% in the last 7 days and about 22% of the population have received their first dose of the vaccine. Although it is still early to anticipate the results there’s definitely light at the end of the tunnel and we must all stay optimistic.
