Recruiting firm WinterWyman has put together a list of five top trends in software developer hiring, and the list should seem familiar for anyone who has been involved in the technology industry over the last five years. It includes includes mobile development, big data, cloud computing, DevOps and UI engineering, in that order.

According to WinterWyman's John VanderSande, "While most companies prefer to hire people with professional mobile development experience, the market will continue to open up for those with side (hobby) projects in iOS or Android." He adds that big data "will continue to be an area of growth over the next year and experience with Hadoop, Storm/Spark, NoSQL, Cassandra, Hbase, etc., will be highly sought after." VanderSande also notes, "Any opportunity to pick up Ruby or Python (or any modern scripting language) as well as cloud management/monitoring tools and technologies can help differentiate your resume from the pack."
