Programming is the main trend for several years ahead, therefore every year more and more beginners come to this sphere. But the question is: where do they start their studies? And professionals too should also be aware of where to develop their skills. Demand for their work depends on this since large companies prefer a limited set of products. Check out the list of most popular programming languages to learn in 2021.
At the moment, React is the most requested set of solutions. It is important that the complaints in his direction are significantly less in comparison with Angular. It is used by corporations like Airbnb and Twitter, because Facebook maintains its functionality and stability at a high level. It is obvious that by 2020 React will again occupy the first lines of the ratings.
Released in 2014, but received a worldwide vocation recently. First of all, he gained popularity due to the simplicity and very low file size. Recent updates have helped bypass React and Angular significantly in many ways. But, objectively, this framework has not yet reached the level of the previous two.
More detailed comparative characteristics of these three products you can study in our previous article.
Today is rated by developers as one of the best back-end frameworks. This is cross-platform software that allows you to create high-performance and lightweight applications becasue of new mobile appp trends. From year to year it remains one of the most downloadable open source frameworks.
Express.js is a framework that provides the necessary functions for developing "off-frame". It also allows you to extend the functionality by adding middleware. It is easy to start with this product, since the documentation is well-written for it. In conjunction with Node.js, they will be the main trends in back-end development both among specialists and beginners.
It is worth noting that, as a rule, Redux is used with React, which, as already mentioned, is at the forefront. Their compatibility indicates the high quality of this library.
The release of this library occurred in 2015, which is quite a long time in the context of the development of modern technologies. Nevertheless, this software can be considered quite young. And over the past year, it has attracted more and more attention from developers.
GraphQL is a set of solutions that is used to download information from the server. It allows you to determine which data is needed and makes it easy to combine data from different sources.
Turning once again to this survey, it is clear that there are not so many respondents using GraphQL, but almost every one of them wants to continue working with it. What is more interesting, 62% of respondents heard about this library and are interested in studying it.
Now, not much is heard about it, but experts assure that GraphQL has grown significantly compared to previous years. Therefore, it is worth paying attention to it. Perhaps soon the demand for relevant specialists will be higher.
A little-known, but very promising framework. The main developer is Richard Harris, better known as the author of the previously popular RactiveJS. A key feature of Svelte is the very small file size due to the shorter code.
If you write, for example, on React, as a result, you get the code for the application and the framework. Without the latter, the application will not work. In other words, the framework is the code that provides the application.
The idea of Svelte is that it is only a tool for creating code. After creating the application, it can exist separately from Svelte. The framework will only be applied if edits are made.
A noticeable disadvantage of this framework is its limited set of features, even in comparison with RactiveJS, not to mention the current tops. Svelte has a small learning curve. But the community of this framework is very small due to its low popularity. Therefore, there may be difficulties in case of problem situations.
Nevertheless, thanks to its unique approach to developing applications, Svelte has every chance of reaching the top of the ratings by 2020. You can stay with React, but experts recommend starting the study of Svelte, to become one of the first qualified specialists on occasion.
Many will ask: which software is better to use? I can say that there is no exact answer. First of all, it depends on the desired result. It is also important to consider what additional tools you plan to use. After all, some frameworks better cope with integration, others have a full set of their own components and are less suitable for using secondary solution sets.
But keep in mind that the "new" is better to learn at the dawn of the project. As a rule, many people understand the "mainstream" frameworks. The demand for them is high, but at the same time, most of the vacancies are occupied. Therefore, it will definitely not be superfluous to study the mentioned "dark horses".
