##some of the worst technology churns #tanko

Tanko

Here’s my expanded list of “worst” tech domains in terms of technology churn. Nothing but personal bias. For every IT professional, it’s his or her personal responsibility to identify these domains, and perhaps avoid investing (too much) into them.

  • —- not ranked
  • functional programming
  • Windowing GUI technologies – X-windows, PowerBuilder, Delphi, Borland c++, …
  • perl — is slowly being displaced by python, though bash scripting is robust
  • Javascript libraries like node.js, angular, jquery, GWT
  • ORM — product proliferation
  • MOM products — products proliferation like tibco, solace, 29west, Tervela, zeroc …
  • datagrid and noSQL — products proliferation
  • high-level integration
    • SOA, microservices?
    • web services, REST
    • EJB, RMI, RPC
    • JMS
  • anything to do with big data —
    • Map reduce? I hope Hadoop remains the standard
    • cloud?
    • machine learning — product proliferation
  • Web app development in general —
    • java web development including struts
    • Microsoft web development
    • PHP? I hope this is a bit more stable, but there are definitely new packages gaining popularity
  • anything on Windows
    • Powershell seems to challenge vbscript.
    • Windows administration – there seem to be many new utilities added every 5 years, replacing the old
  • anything on mobile
    • WAP
    • SMS based apps — used to be so popular in zed’s heydays
    • WindowsPhone, Symbian

–churn-resistant, robust techonologies

  • C/C++
  • C++ key libraries — STL, boost
  • socket, tcp/udp
  • Unix admin (relative to Windows admin) and scripting
  • core java i.e. at the core layer
  • SQL complex queries
  • DBA
  • Messaging architecture?
  • FIX
  • async architecture
  • http
