Technology Radar Vol. 29

Adopt, trial, assess or hold? Find out in the 29th 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.
