You should not look for a tester with Manual Testing experience or Automation Testing experience or both - Here�s the reason why.

2016 Technology Trends that you need to know about
January 19, 2016 by Keith De Alwis in Blog entries
Among the leading app development agencies in england we often get asked our opinions about what the main technology trends are, along with what the hottest areas of tech are. We talked to many vendors, manufactures, service providers and mobile operators at CES 2016 and ended what we think are the best 2016 technology trends.
1. Information of the things (IOE)
With tech moving towards interconnectivity where all things in your household will be coupled to the internet, the main challenge for the industry will be how and who can harness the massive volume of data that will become available. Which has a predicted 25 billion devices by 2020, data is going to be generated and mined across almost every topic and niche out there. The real trick will probably be who can harness this data and how it can be turned into meaningful insight.
2. Autonomous agents
Probably the most exciting start ups we saw at CES was the Autonomous one man drone which won Better off Beat product of 2016. The rather un-catchy named EHANG 184 carries a top speed of 60 MPH along with a maximum altitude of 11,000 feet and could be programmed to fly from specific GPS locations. First autonomous cars and today autonomous drones. This is an division of massive development with all the ability for robots to be aware of and surpass people in their ability to perform human tasks. The genuine challenge for governments and regulating authorities is always to control the transfer of autonomous vehicles from controlled environments to uncontrolled environments (Like airspace).

3. 3D Printing materials
Another sector that is maintaining growth at pace in 3D printing. However some technologists are already calling 3D printing old hat, to be able to print car engine parts (like Tesla have begun doing) and printing rocket parts who have historically been exorbitantly expensive to create, suddenly industries will probably produce material and significantly lower costs. Take fractional treatments forward ten years and now we can see 3D printing extend to biological material, including food.
4. The unit �Mesh�
Another key 2016 key technology trend may be the device Mesh. As devices gets smarter plus much more relevant, the ability to start tracking patterns from sensor arrays is starting to become much more prevalent. These device sensors raises in number and when grouped together can begin to start gathering data on the daily patterns.The outcomes will ultimately lead to sustained insights about our daily patterns.
5. Advanced Machine Learning (AML)
With trends such as the device mesh, technologies can collect meaningful patterns of data but with advanced Machine learning the technology will not only manage to collect the data, but study on in as well. We have been really seeing very early advanced Artificial intelligence (AI) where a lot of the initial analysis typically that needs a human, will be replicated by technology thereby elevating case study in the process. Anyone else have SkyNet jump in your thoughts?
6. Personal Desktop computer to personal home helper
Mark Zuckerburg recently posted among his new resolutions ended up being to personally research and code an individual home helper that may do everything from set the high temperature of his house to order his groceries. He cited Jarvis from Batman as the ultimate in home helper and from what we saw at CES there are several companies far later on in this field of tech and this will be a key 2016 technology trend.

7. Smart Security often known as Adaptive Security Architecture
One seriously hot area of tech right now is the adaptive security architecture. Ask any FTSE 100 CTO what his/her biggest concern of 2016 was and i also guarantee they will say security. With a few massive companies being hit in 2015 which trend likely to continue so much R&D has gone into smart security where predictive modelling enables systems & infrastructure to detect and launch automated counter measures on attacks. Not only can they defend themselves from attacks Like DoS (Denial and services information) they will attack back.
8. Mesh Apps
This can be one we have seen coming for quite a while. Rather than building apps to pay for all parts of a given product/service, Mesh Apps are plugging together several technologies into a single app. This strategy can massively increase deliver times in addition to making scalability much easier to manage.
9. Ambiant UE (Buyer experience)
The device mesh produces the foundation for a new continuous and ambient buyer experience. Immersive environments delivering augmented and virtual reality hold significant potential however are only one aspect of the experience. The ambient buyer experience preserves continuity across boundaries of device mesh, space and time. The experience seamlessly flows across a shifting group of devices and interaction channels blending physical, virtual and electronic environment because user moves from place to another.
10. Next-gen Virtual Reality
Virtual Reality Headsets were entirely force throughout CES. Contemporary virtual reality (VR) varies, as well as the most part it involves a headset which has a 360-degree virtual view, run by a gaming computer and handheld controllers that allow the wearer to change position and interact with digital world they see. Big players in this subject were HTC using vive headset and of course the Facebook owned Oculus Rift.
However, despite so many high-end devices on the verge of launching - as well as Samsung�s more smartphone-centric Gear VR already around the market- many are predicting that low-cost virtual reality will garner one of the most interest at this year�s CES. Alternatives to Google Cardboard - these devices made of said material, as well as for which building instructions readily available for download free online - are set to be widespread, because the public�s growing understanding of virtual reality fuels new interest.
