The Next BIG Opportunity In Software Development

Hello! How are you? John Sonmez from simpleprogrammer.com. I have a question about the next opportunity in software development. When will it appear? This question is from David and he says: “I just watched your video” The developer’s work will disappear. “You can see what he’s talking about here,” in which he said that some people miss the opportunity in WordPress plugins and applications. Apple. My question is: how do we know if and when the next opportunity will come? Additional information: “I am 59 years old and I can not waste time losing opportunities or going in the wrong direction. “My God, it is very difficult to answer.

In fact, I’m reading a book right now. I really did not finish the book. I’ll do a review when it’s over. It means, let me think for a second, inevitable. Inevitable. You can see the book here. Good?

Now, in this book, he really answers that question. It’s a bit interesting because it talks about how it basically got a hit when the web appeared and you had dotcoms, right? He has a story in which he says he introduced himself, he talked to ABC and he said that he needs one of his computer or other nerd computers to sign up and subscribe to ABC. .com because he wants to get that. In fact, at that time, I was free to register domains. He said he came back a few weeks later and ABC.com did not register or ABC did not register ABC.com. He said that many developers feel, “Oh, I wish I could go back to that moment if you can just put a web application or create a shop and sell something online or come back when YouTube starts … Man, You know it would be so easy to create an audience or develop a channel at this time. “He says it’s the most important moment now, and it’s the best time for people to look back today and say,” It would have been great to be a web developer and become a developer in 2016. There were so many options out there. ”

I think his point is that there is always that. We will always have that. We just do not know where these things are, but there are ways to find them and hints on how things are going. One thing I would say is that you have to look for things that are a major barrier to entry. Well, before we go into that … well, yes. We’ll talk about how that works backward in time, right?

Then everyone said, “Oh, I would be on the internet and want to be an application developer or create 1980 or 1990, before all get all the domain names, make and sell SaaS applications objects. won so much money. “So true. Maybe you’re close to some of you, but what do you think, guess what like the network in 1980 or 1990, since in 1980 say it was too childish to say 1990. There’s certainly an opportunity here, not true?

The web was like … you have no tools. How to create a web application because I remember … Um, I’ve been creating web applications for a long time when I was 10 years old. He did it for pleasure or for the army. I had a small job internally and coded by HTML in Hotdog or Notepad. There were no tools to do that or simply implement it. We had CGI applications and we wrote Perl scripts to process payments for PayPal and so on. It was not easy because it’s not the way you could do it now, where you can buy a Shopify subscription and you can sell what you want online and you have _____ [inaudible 0.04: 04] and all that. When creating this application, there were big entry barriers.

The same, say, YouTube, right? Many YouTube users today say, “Oh, shit.” If I was a YouTube creator when YouTube came out, I do not even know when it was, but even as it was 10 years ago, it would have been so amazing. I should have done that or it could have been PewDiePie. ”

The fact is, the entrance barrier was so high, right? How to record videos, now we have all taken in our pockets 1080, we were able to record a 4K video. It’s crazy and it sounds and everything and we can download it, we have the bandwidth for it. But back then, when YouTube came out, we did not have it, it was difficult. It was really difficult. There was a big barrier to entry.

The point is, the barrier to entry was so high, right? How to record videos, now we have all 1080 in the bag, we could shoot a 4K video. It’s crazy and it sounds and everything and we can download it, we have the bandwidth for it. But back then, when YouTube came out, we did not have it, it was difficult. It was really difficult. There was a big barrier to entry.

The same with App Store, when Apple opened the App Store, it was not easy to develop iOS applications. There were no tutorials. Nobody taught you how to do it. There were no frames and tools. You have to go through the enigmatic things of the Apple developer. It was also a bet. They did not even know if it would work. It was not popular, right? The same when Android first came out. All these possibilities have one thing in common, namely that there is a big barrier to entry, just like WordPress add-ons, right? Besides, it was an unknown and unknown area. Nobody knew if it would be popular or not.

There are many ways to answer your question right now. I mean, some people say that virtual reality is space. I know a guy who does a lot of virtual reality games and makes a fortune by creating virtual reality games because he jumps into that room and it’s hard to get in now. He discovered it, so he overcame it. Not everyone can develop virtual reality things. He has overcome this access barrier. At this stage, he is also working on this untested technology. If it pulls, it will be fine. It could fail and it would have wasted time. I would not say it is a waste of time.

If you are looking for the next big thing, look for things that are a big barrier to entry and that are not popular at the moment but have the opportunity to participate in this game. Put a horse in this race. Put a horse in this race and see who wins. This is the best bet I can give you and can be extremely productive.

If I could predict the future, if I knew where it was, I would do it now. Sometimes, however, I will say that there is an advantage in this technological area, not being the first on the market, but the second in the market. Microsoft has completely developed its strategy of not being the first to reach the market. What they do is let the competitors do things. Then they find a way to improve it and make it much better and then buy it, buy the competitors or send the version. It did not work for them with the phones, but it worked with many things they did, many of the technologies they developed. We’ll see what’s really going on with phones with Microsoft because they’re not done yet. There are still possibilities there. I think we will see incredible things.

My point is. Now, if you want to figure out what the next big thing is, you choose something that has a big entry-level hurdle, which has a good chance of recovering, and starts to become productive. It’s an option or the second option is to choose something that is already successful or popular, right? For example, I still wrote a good blog and like YouTuber, although I was late to play, technically late because I was extremely productive on the platform and I was spending my time. If I had arrived early, it would have taken less effort to do so much traction. I could bet on something to compensate, do a good job and be more productive.

You have one of these two tracks. You may be about to bleed and up the barrier to enter, or you may follow what you already know, already working, and you have already lost the gold rush, but there are still benefits to gain. , People who entered Bitcoin (I mean we can) could give examples all day long. People who first extracted Bitcoins can make a fortune, but the people who came later and bought the GPU configurations and started their mining operation a little later did very, very well. If you try to enter now, it’s almost too late. There is still a chance there. You just have to discover the angle and how things will change.

I highly recommend paying for this book, as I said. This is called inevitable. This will give you some ideas, but it is difficult. If you can predict if you can predict where the gold rush is then it’s amazing. I guarantee it, where a next gold rush is a place where there is a very high barrier to entry. That’s the only clue I could give you about it. If I knew where I was, I would work on it now. I do not think it’s Snapchat. I give you that.

Okay, I’ll talk to you next time. Oh, before I forget it, click the subscribe button, because you do not want to lose, if you find out, I’ll betray it on this channel. It is better that you register to tell you where the next gold rush is. Okay, I’ll talk to you next time. We have to be careful.
