Software development is changing and so are the roles that developers need to play. Companies have been trying to fill their ranks with full-stack engineers to build monolithic apps. The move to DevOps and microservices demands new skills. Now a developer must become fluent in a different way. It is less about multi-layer and more about multi-discipline. Now a developer must become fluent in software testing, deployment, telemetry and even security. Developers will be responsible for securing their own work! The future software engineer will know about software security and will have automated tools at their disposal. There will still be security specialists but software security will no longer be a specialist discipline.
This means the "full spectrum engineer" must have the capability of also securing their own work. The future software engineer will know about software security and will have automated tools at their disposal.
We will still have specialists to go deep but software security will no longer be thought of as a specialist discipline.
