Get a full recap of how emerging tools will help developers guarantee governance and security, align software projects with business processes, and frankly, get more innovative work done with less effort.

Inside, we recall major themes that were discussed this year, including how: 

    • The future of PaaS lies in finding better ways to bake compliance and controls into cloud infrastructure

    • Encryption and authentification features in the new Docker Swarm architecture can help prevent man-in-the-middle attacks

    • Blockchain efforts are helping developers secure faster financial transactions, with support from Amex, JPMorgan, and Wells Fargo

    • Data-driven apps are being used, and what to expect in the next 10 years

    • Deep learning and visualization can help developers craft algorithms with minimal effort and align code with business goals
