What are the future trends in practical software engineering?

Eric | December 17, 2012

In the near future we are planning to conduct a survey with SE practitioners, to find out what are the future trends (within the next 5-10 years) with respect to software development – including both sociological and technological trends.

Currently we are looking into “seeding” this survey by brainstorming about such trends. So what do you think? What trends do you see that could be included for discussion in such a survey? Please comment here…
