Automation Is Like Industrialization Before And After Electricity

  • Automation of software development is creating a transformation that is changing the world at an accelerating rate.
  • Advanced automation is a major disruptive force that will present big opportunities as well as big challenges.

“This way of doing software engineering is delta engineering. It is evolution.”

One of the great transformations that has happened through automation, one that is actually changing the world at an accelerating rate, is the automation of software development. The shift from a traditional waterfall model, where millions of lines of code are developed before a product is released, to an agile model where code is released whenever it’s ready, has changed everything.
