Have you learned anything new yet this year? I’m sure with the evolving technologies, there are lots to catch up with. Talking about technologies, do you know that java has brought plenty of changes? And it will get tough if you are not up to date. Don’t worry if you have not updated your data of java you are in the right place.
I am sure many mobile app development companies have managed to keep up to date with the latest technologies. If not this blog helps you to know the list of things developers should learn in 2020.
What is Java
Before jumping into new trends of java, let’s quickly get a brief idea about what is Java? Java is the most common programming language for Android smartphone applications. The major benefit of java is “write once, run anywhere”. This says that compiled Java code can be run on all java supported platforms without the need for recompilation. Its automatic garbage collection mechanism makes it even more popular. Being one of the most preferred programming languages for edge device creation and the internet of things. Java is used in a vast domain-like Banking, retail, information technology, android, stock market, big data, scientific and research community, etc
Here we are going to elaborate on new skills that can help you become a java expert in 2020.
If you are trying to get better on java, make sure to go for DevOps. DevOps is an IT mindset that allows software developers and IT developers to collaborate, work together, integrate and automate to improve software quality and speed. It also helps to improve the cooperation between all stakeholders from planning, implementation, and automation to others.
- Improvement of deployment frequency
- To achieve faster time to market
- To lower the failure rate of the new release
- It also shortens the lead time between fixes
- Improve mean time to recovery
Well, developers, do you know that lately, Github has been around. And most businesses now move from SVN, CVS to Git their programs, as it provides fast performance, convenient & has multiple workflows. Anyhow, If you want to use Git from a Java application, there is a full-function library named JGit. You can branch and merge with Git any time, and it boots fast. Now, Developers can get complete control over the local code base and be able to handle changes offline.
This means things you can do like;
- Frictionless context switching
- Role-based code lines
- Features based workflows
- Disposable experimentation
Docker and Kubernetes
Well you probably have heard the buzz Of IT town about dockers and Kubernetes and its impact on DevOps. Dockers are not just a new technology but it’s a game-changer in the field of development. Today almost all development teams, be it a big company, small startup, or an android app development company use Docker and Kubernetes. Docker containers will help you isolate and load your apps in full. whereas Kubernetes will help you deploy your containers and arrange them. This helps you to concentrate more easily on creating new features and fixing bugs.
The architecture of microservices ensures the fast, frequent and consistent delivery of massive, complex applications. Microservices also helps an organization build its stack of technology.
It structures an application as a collection of service that is:
- Highly maintainable and testable
- Loosely coupled
- Owned by a small team
- Organized under business capabilities
- Independently deployable.
Spring Framework 5
If you haven’t tried spring framework5, it’s the right time. Spring is a system that allows you to “wire” different components. It’s useful when you have several components and you may want to combine them in various ways. And to make it simple if you want to switch one part into another in conjunction with different settings or environments.
It is a software testing standard in which individual units/software components are evaluated. The goal is to validate the output of every unit of the program. The smallest part of any device can be checked. Mainly it has one or more inputs and typically only one output. There are 3 types of testing like Black box testings, white box testings, and grey box testings.
Spring security 5.0
Spring Security is an authentication, authorization and security mechanism against specific attacks. It is the de-facto standard for Spring-based applications with first-class support for both imperative and reactive applications.
Cloud ( AWS)
Besides containers, Cloud is something all software developers are expected to learn in 2020. Firms from all sizes and sectors are now shifting their infrastructure to Cloud to save money and to boost scalability. It means that you will need to deal with cloud-based applications sooner or later. Cloud computing is the on-demand provision by the pay-as-you-go price of IT services over the internet. You can get access to technology resources like computing power, storage, and databases on the necessary basis from a cloud provider.
Currency ensures that several transactions exist simultaneously. If the processor assigns two processes to separate machine cores, and the processor instructions are executed concurrently by both cores.
RESTful Web Service
REST is used to create lightweight, maintainable and scalable Web services. A RESTful Server is a database designed on the REST architecture. The REST protocol is based on HTTP & the standard web protocol.
Thanks for being patient and reading this blog. Every day we come up with new technologies and it’s very important to keep updating ourselves with new technologies. Anyhow currently for java developers and mobile app service providers, the upper mention technologies are there to look out for 2020. I hope this technology interests you & you would probably be thinking of involving upper mention technologies on your new project.
