Things Developers Should Learn in 2020 – It has been about 3 weeks now since 2020 has arrived and 2019 has left us. Many programmers are already starting to make good progress to their goal in 2020. This is very good indeed, but what if you’re still not sure what to learn in 2020? well, this article covers up just that.
In the last couple of years, Java has brought us plentiful changes and features. And we have a tough challenge to keep it up-to-date with new Java version which is scheduled to arrive about once in 6 months.
So without further ado, let’s see the things developers should learn in 2020. Maybe you can take inspiration from these things and create your own goals.
So what are the things developers should learn in 2020?
Docker and kubernetes
It has been tested that containers like Dockers can do more than helping developers to test their application in a unified environment, but it can also simplify the deployment process.
With the ability of docker in your hand, you can deploy your application quickly, with all of its dependency in one shot. It also proves devs with process isolation.
Not to mention, Kubernetes, which is a container regulator tool, takes it to the next level and it can also manage containers for you.
All of this means that you do not have to worry about the scalability of your apps, because Kubernetes or K8s can do that for developers automatically.
Nowadays many programmers haven’t yet to master Git. Why? well simply because they didn’t need it “yet”, as their code might be in SVN or CVS
Lately, most companies are migrating their projects from CVS, SVN to Git, hence it is a good time to learn and master Git.
If you want to learn or improve your Git, you can come and check out many courses at Udemy.
If you guys want to become better developers in 2020, then working out on your unit testing skills is viewed as relatively important now. Well nut just unit testing, but in general an automated testing.
You can learn unit testing like JUnit 5 and other great unit testing libraries like Mockito, Cucumber, and Root Framework to improve your unit testing skill to the next level.
The programming language that I specialize in is Java, because I think Java programming language is more universal and of course because I like it regardless of any reason.
