Hottest Tech Skills Of Era

This article is all about the things you should know, if you are directly or indirectly connected to the field- ‘Computer Science’.

Hottest Tech Skills of Era

So without wasting any bit of time, let’s explore.

Coding

Coding

If we are talking about hottest tech skills list, and the list won’t be topped by coding skills. It’s near to impossible. In every decade, any trend coding plays the most significant role. These days coding skills are as necessary as reading-listening or maths skills.

Directly or indirectly if you are a good listener, quick learner and got maths skills, then no doubt coding is for you. Many firms already starting some really cool innovative stuffs to teach coding skills. One of them and most influential is:

    The purpose of our Digital Eagles is simple – to work in local communities to give people the opportunity to learn and embrace digital skills.”

    -Steven Roberts (Strategic Transformation Director, Barclays).

You can find programming in each and everything and according to me-

    If you can imagine anything, then coding gives you freedom to create it. Be more creative and focus on your imagination.”.

For diving deeper into this matter, I would suggest you guys to go through these websites and some innovative ideas:

  • Express.co.uk – Innovations
  • Reading Grockets – Programming Skills for Kids
  • Fora – Programming in everything

Some other innovations that are taking more and more girls and women into this business are:

  • PinkCloud (Microsoft)
  • VidCode

Cloud Computing

Cloud Computing

Cloud Computing is the latest technology trend that is making life easier and better and will continue for people in organisations dealing with huge amounts of data and information. Now a days institutions, both government and private, invest a great deal in maintaining servers to store that information. However, not all of this data is accessed frequently.

These results are underutilisation of available services and unnecessary costs. That is where cloud computing helps. Almost each and every big names are into cloud computing and investing according to its growth and future scope.

Some of these statements reveal the truth, why cloud computing is going to be a mammoth and useful in upcoming years-

    2015 will be the year that the cloud becomes the ‘new normal’.

    By year end, we'll see a world of hybrid deployments in which some information and applications reside in the cloud and the remainder resides on premise."
    - Mark Barrenechea (CEO- OpenText)

Big Data

big data

Big data is a broad term for data sets so large or complex that traditional data processing applications are inadequate. Challenges include analysis, capture, data curation, search, sharing, storage, transfer, visualization, and information privacy. The term often refers simply to the use of predictive analytics or other certain advanced methods to extract value from data, and seldom to a particular size of data set. Accuracy in big data may lead to more confident decision making. And better decisions can mean greater operational efficiency, cost reductions and reduced risk. (Source- Wikipedia).

In simple words, we can define big data as a huge/massive amount or collection of data that can be nearly any-type, any-size and variety.

Here are some influential says and predictions about Big Data and it’s importance by SEO giants.

    Around 66% of IT leaders and 53% of IT professionals believe their organizations need to build new platforms and structures to make use of their vast mammoth data management needs, thereby getting rid of the current systems.
    - TEK Systems

    Big data will continue to grow in 2015, due in part to the rise of the Internet of Things, which has the power to embed technology in practically anything.

Here is a statistical data that shows importance of Big Data in coming years:

Internet of Things (IoT)

Internet of Things

It has been just around 22 years since the first web browser was launched. Who would have thought that the world will change this much? The cloud has evolved and has a substantial amount of data and we have our personal hand-held devices to access that. More than 90% of people have mobile phones and tablets.

We are now about to work on the next step of the internet and web. We need to connect our physical world to the internet. Our physical world and everything around us will be connected to the internet.

So the first question is, what are the things in the “Internet of Things”?

Things are anything around us, what we encounter in our daily life, machines, goods, appliances, vehicles, plants, animals we are even included in that. In the last several years many of us have heard about many Internet of Things around us. Some examples are, an Air Conditioner that we can power on from any remote location with a mobile app and an IP camera that can send pictures to our mobile devices if anyone comes to our home.

Here are some influential says and predictions about Internt of Things (IoT) and it’s importance by soe giants-

    The internet of Things (IoT) is far bigger than anyone realizes.
    - Wired

    "In the next century, planet earth will don an electronic skin. It will use the Internet as a scaffold to support and transmit its sensations."

Data Mining / Machine Learning

Data mining (the analysis step of the "Knowledge Discovery in Databases" process, or KDD), an interdisciplinary subfield of computer science, is the computational process of discovering patterns in large data sets ("big data") involving methods at the intersection of artificial intelligence, machine learning, statistics, and database systems.

The overall goal of the data mining process is to extract information from a data set and transform it into an understandable structure for further use. Aside from the raw analysis step, it generally involves the following:

    - Database and data management aspects
    - Data pre-processing
    - Model and inference considerations
    - Interestingness metrics
    - Complexity considerations
    - Post-processing of discovered structures
    - Data visualization
    - Online updating.

Some of the most enduring fields of Data Minning are as follows:
