Kubernetes came from nowhere in 2017 to top 12 percent in 2018.

IoT platforms are being built the most followed by home automation systems and industrial automation. Smart cities, energy management and agriculture rounded out the top 6.

Java is the programming language of choice in IoT. Milinkovich noted that IoT programming languages shouldnt be fancy so that means traditional methods in many cases. Theres no compelling rationale for a new programming language for IoT, he said. When dealing with gateways and clouds youre looking into the skillsets of what developers have today.
