As a software developer, it’s important to keep up with the trends and be aware of what skills are currently in demand. By arming yourself with an understanding of the skills that are high on employers’ most wanted lists, you naturally become a more attractive proposition.
So, where should you be investing your time this year?
TypeScript, along with React, is proving to be the gateway to increased usage of component-oriented web development.
Holland’s advice for developers, then, is to learn TypeScript, React and Angular. It makes sense, with Angular written in TypeScript. He believes that with these skills “you can easily build web and native mobile applications, all using the same language”.
It sounds like a no-brainer for developers – it ensures they are being as productive as possible with their time.
Holland’s concluding words were particularly valuable: “We want to learn something once and not have to relearn things every 12 months. It’s exhausting. Then again, we don’t want to be limited by the fact that we’re experts in one specific domain. That’s very frustrating.”
Basically, it pays to constantly be increasing the skills you have in your locker. It’s time to go away and put that advice into practice.
