Bacancy Tech Agility is a document that we publish every six months or so to educate our valued readers and clients with the list of emerging technologies. The Software development industry is progressing too quickly, and we wish you to stay updated with the latest technology trends so you can pay attention to the top-notch technologies that we will adopt and implement in your next project. At Bacancy Technology, we want to be at top-of-the-line in technology choices, to objectively assess technology for the problems we see in today’s digital age.
For any tech geek, it’s nearly impossible to keep up with all the latest technologies and Bacancy’s Tech Agility is an experiment that will help you to stay on top of the newest technology trends.
In-person, we conduct a productive brainstorming session for hours before adding a single technology in the Tech Agility list. If you're interested in getting someone to talk about the Tech Agility, then fill-up the form and get in touch with our skilled expert today.
AD - Architectural Decision (AD) is a form of document that architecturally records functional or non-functional decisions that impact a project. The impact to be architecturally significant within a project with their context and consequences, we recommend these details to store in source control instead of a website or wiki as the record remains in sync with the code itself.
Kotlin is an official and new programming language for Android. It is an oss statically-typed programming language based on Java virtual machine from JetBrains, the maker of the world’s best IDEs. Kotlin has both object-oriented and functional constructs. As a language, Kotlin is more concise. The development of Kotlin was explicitly to eliminate the verbosity of Java language, which means a programmer won't be required to deal with a massive amount of repetitive coding. With a concise, intuitive and compact coding syntax, Kotlin is helpful in coding time as it fastens the whole deployment process.

Apollo is a suite of tools to quickly build self-documenting and production-ready API for GraphQL using data from any source. It works great as a stand-alone server to build a universal GraphQL API on top of your existing REST APIs. Apollo provides GraphQL gateway and server framework to the Apollo client to simplify the problem of binding UI components to data served by any GraphQL backend. Apollo is used by Amazon AWS in the new AWS AppSync service.
Polycloud is an evolving cloud strategy, which is taking hold across a range of organisations. Polycloud lets you use multiple cloud vendors instead of using a single cloud vendor. By doing this, polycloud lets you build your customised cloud solution following your unique requirements. Rather than going ‘all-in’ with one cloud service provider, polycloud helps to pass different types of workloads to various providers using the best match that each cloud provider offers.
The web Bluetooth API is a low-level API that communicates over GATT with nearby Bluetooth-enabled devices in a secure and privacy-preserving way. Web Bluetooth allows a browser to unite and control Bluetooth devices around you. With web Bluetooth soon, almost all the objects around you would become smart and would connect digitally. We use the Web Browser to target specific scenarios that previously could only be solved with a native application. You won’t require to have a separate app for each device, making use of a browser, and Chrome is one of the major browsers that are supporting this specification.
It is a powerful practice that is revolutionising the way software is designed and engineered at some of the largest-scale operations. Chaos engineering is a kind of experiment on a distributed system to build confidence in the capability of the systems to withstand realistic conditions in production. Where other practices address flexibility and velocity, Chaos tackles the uncertainty in the distributed systems. We use chaos engineering to innovate quickly at massive scales and give end users the supreme experiences they deserve.
At Bacancy Technology, we have been leveraging the benefits of BackstopJS for visual regression testing for web apps.
