John K. Waters recently wrote for ADT Mag, “We’re only a month into 2016 and it’s already shaping up to be another lively year for enterprise developers. Mobile, cloud, DevOps, IoT, microservices, the API economy, cognitive computing, virtual reality - all are reshaping organizations in fundamental ways, and it looks like devs are going to have a large role to play in that change.
