Adopt, trial, assess or hold? Find out in the 30th edition of the Technology Radar! The Thoughtworks Technology Radar has been tracking changes in the technology landscape for over a decade. 


Based on our observations, conversations and experiences with our clients, it covers both existing and emerging technologies.


The report divides the trends into four groups: Techniques, platforms, tools, programming languages and frameworks. Within these groups, each trend has a recommendation: "Hold" for technologies that are not initially recommended for use; "Assess" for technologies that require further evaluation; "Trial" for technologies that are ready for use; and "Adopt" for mature technologies.


Each edition, we capture some of the big pictures that are emerging in our themes. The themes for this edition are:


  • AI-Assisted software development teams

  • Open-ish source licenses

  • Dragging Pull Requests closer to proper continuous integration

  • Emerging architecture patterns for large language models 

You can explore the interactive Radar here or download the whole report as a PDF
