Technology is fast moving, and developers need to keep pace with it in order to keep their career on track. If a developer is not sharpening up his/her skills on the latest programming languages and other relevant technology then he/she is convincingly doing well to keep a full stop in its career perspective. Reading tech blogs like this one is also one of the best ways for developers to stay updated with the new advancing technology. Let's check out the latest technologies in the market that developers need to learn about:
1. Hadoop - If you have not yet heard of Hadoop, its surprising you need to wake up. And if you have heard of it then you must actively learn this. It is one of the most influencing and market dominating newer technologies. It’s an open source software that supports data-intensive distributed applications. Hadoop is harder to learn and also hard to get the right and sufficient resource for reference. However, in whatever degree the developer can adequate himself or herself with this software. Moreover, it can never impossible to learn anything, with a little bit of effort developers can definitely master themselves.
2. MongoDB - This is another ruling technology although it's not as big as Hadoop but MongoDB has its own importance and it's much easier to learn. MongoDB is a database that fits well with big AJAX applications.
3. Scala - With the changing concurrent programming, there has been a pragmatic shift in the kind of application developers are asked to build upon. For instance not long back the trading applications were demanded on C or C++ buy now demand and preference has shifted to Java. The newer technology debut in functional object-oriented programming is of Scala. Scala is not just a language it's in fact a complete ecosystem of ideas and libraries such as play and Akka. Staying away from is something that as a developer you can’t afford at the current market scenario, so better love it and learn it.
4. Node. j's - You are a Java developer or a c++ or any other programming language. But having knowledge of state event-based, nonblocking systems like Node.js is important. While learning Node.JS, you may get reasons enough reasons to dislike the language but once you move ahead you will find plenty reasons that will interest you about Node.js. Such as the language is supported by a vibrant community industry support from Microsoft to Cloudbees to VMware and beyond.
5. C/C++ or Assembly - Now this is something to which no developer can give a miss. You may not be using it directly but you will definitely be glad to have the knowledge of C/C++ or Assembly as you will be using the language, directly or indirectly on various platforms. As c and C++ plus is the basic programming language , so it is always important to be clear with the basics in order to rightly understand the technology at higher levels. For instance if you are a Ruby Developer then no one will look for your knowledge of C++ but any day and anytime you may be asked to fix a problem that your knowledge of c/c++ can best resolve.
6. GIT - If you still have no or limited knowledge of Git or don’t have account in GiftHub, the you are late or slow in the developer community. Tight your belts and fasten up. GIT is not something to which you can give a miss. In fact you should have learnt it long back last year itself. Well it's not late yet as you can straight away drive to get hands on on GIT, the source code management (SCM) system.
