How a truly cloud-OS could provide the same outcomes that Moore’s Law had promised — but cannot deliver anymore. Now that miniaturisation has almost reached its limits, optimisation will become the key for innovation, so PLs like Go and a new kind of developer would need to emerge to support it. The entire post-war technical boom that we are still experiencing today has been supported by a hardware backbone: specifically miniaturisation. Decreasing size of hardware made possible dramatic cost reductions, which in turns enabled humanity to carry a supercomputer in their pocket. This generated cascading new business models, disrupted entire industries (pick your favourite) and gave birth to company valuations the likes of which we have rarely seen in history . The technological landscape is about to be revolutionised, and developers needs to be prepared. Choosing the right Programming Language or the correct architecture is becoming so important that large corporations are seeking Strategic Technologists, a mish-mash between a CTO, a developer and a consultant. This talk will give an overview of the current technological landscape, of how Go might evolve to support the next 20 years of cloud development and about a new emerging professional role in the industry based on my experience in Monitor Deloitte on shaping the tech stack of companies like Shell, Maersk, Vodafone and others.
