In his talk, he focused on five major areas for Scalable Software Development. He briefly talked about the Front End Development, familiarity with React Framework, AngularJS, and Typescriptis a must. He then focused on acquiring skills in Application Networking. The networking side of the development requires good knowledge of the CDN-Content Distribution Network, Load Balancing, and Service Discoveries. He then talked about data-efficient storage solutions like Apache Cassandra.
He further went on to explain that Application Processing Units are the next important block in software design. Having a good hand in database technologies like MongoDB, DynamoDB and Container technologies like Docker, Kubernets is a plus today.
