Whatever be the current trend on Linked-In, at the end of the day the product development life cycle remains quite the same.

Still, as developers which general domains in software do you think would flourish in the near future?

My picks (not in order) -
>> Cyber security : automation, both offensive and defensive
>> Block chain : trustable data platforms
>> Applied AI : a few key models, applied to all niches, bettering existing UX
>> IOT : wearables, embeddables, smart appliances
>> AR : Navigation prompts, real time info about real life objects
>> VR : Immerse entertainment. (Metaverse 🤮)
>> Quantum computing : first gen costly commercial releases, new algos

What would you add or subtract from this?

    I think blockchain is going to flounder for a while and may not end up going anywhere. The vast majority of blockchain implementations have massively worse performance than the tech they're supposed to be replacing, in addition to mostly being a vehicle for speculative investment.

    I think we'll see some level of decentralization flourishing in the near future (we already have a bit of an upward trend due to the sudden popularity of federated social media like Mastodon in the wake of Elon Musk's Twitter takeover), but I don't think any of it will be built on blockchain tech unless blockchain enthusiasts actually build something that isn't a get-rich-quick scheme for once.
