The end of 2016 is here, and I think many of us are breathing a sigh of relief. The year has not been kind to some, and has been described as a “dumpster fire” by others. On the whole, I actually think that 2016 was a pretty decent year, or at least no worse than most previous years. But I am a bit biased since my second daughter was born in June, and she is awesome! That’ll tip the scales regardless of what else happened. Anyhow, I digress. The tech industry has seen a lot of change, with new technologies emerging and companies innovating at a rapid pace. I’d like to use this post to take a look at a few of those trends, and which ones I will be keeping an eye on in the coming year.
