Mixed Reality

The twin technologies of Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) will continue to grow in 2020. With the growing availability of headsets, the arrival of 5G mobile networking and the potential for social VR points to the increasing probability that AR/VR is the future of immersive storytelling.


Blockchain, one of the most talked-about technologies in the software world. Although already extensively used in the financial sector with the largest financial companies in the world building upon this trend, it's showing no sign of slowing down. Blockchain is displaying extensive growth in media, publishing and healthcare services, to name a few. As a result, the need for blockchain developers is increasing rapidly.
