2021 Predictions

2020 has been an ‘interesting’ year for the tech industry (just as it has for everyone else!). Since we are reaching the end of the year, it is time for tech predictions for 2021 – what products, services, and developments are going to rock our tech world over the next 12 months?

Jamie Phillips, Senior Cloud Engineer, looks back at a prediction he made in 2019 that didn’t quite come true, but 2021 may just be its year. What is that prediction?

Phillips also looks at where he thinks open source will head in 2021.
