If you are running all of that stuff on your machine first thing you have to make sure is creating a recovery point or setting up the backup for your data and files. Windows 10 is installing like an addition to your current system, Windows 8.1 and it's not rewriting whole system data from the scratch.
I think you will not have any problems. I updated my windows from 8 to 10. The first time a year ago Windows 10 was working very bad and I have hung the computer and went back to a previous version of Windows. After half a year, I decided to update Windows to version 10 again. And now it works fine and I'm very happy. of course up to you.
Take a backup, then do the upgrade. Process will tell you what you need to re-install.
Secondly, having tried Windows 10 since its early days I am among those who recommend performing a clean install is the best way to upgrade your systems, just to your curiosity, Microsoft happens to allow you to use your product keys that you got with Windows 7 and 8, 8.1. The edition of Windows 10 is considered based on the key's edition.
So, in my opinion, performing a clean install is one of the best ways to upgrade machine.
Will I be able to run all the existing developed software without any major manual setting?
I run all sorts of software from development, to virtualization, to graphics, to animation and all the way to games. Yes they work pretty well. Is question is about one specific software, check their documentation for supported platforms.

you will be able to run the existing developed software even though your windows will most probably need some type of protection just in case it will download any infectious things like diseases that will make your laptop or tablet play up.
