Technology is an unstoppable juggernaut that rules this present world. As a result of the accelerated growth of technology, tech experts who are versed in multiple stacks are currently in high demand. In Silicon Valley, they are the third most in-demand job according to a report by Indeed earlier this year. It is, therefore, necessary for you to learn a lot of languages and frameworks rather than just one.
In response to the numerous questions being asked by several people, these are the most important reasons why learning multiple languages supersedes learning just one;
- You get an in-depth understanding of each language and framework as well as the merits and the demerits of each.
Most developers work mostly with one language they are familiar with. This may be what they learned in school, or what their present job requires or they may be extremely occupied to learn a new one. This may be really risky. However, this can be solved by developing skills in 3 stacks because better developer understands the time and reasons to use the right language or framework so as to reduce stress.
- You increase your job opportunities with multiple stacks instead of just one.
There was a time when many companies were in high demand for Ruby and Rails. But at this present moment, most companies’ curriculum has been changed to revolve around all the major web programming (C#, Java, Python, PHP, Ruby, Node)
- Technology is evolving by the minute and most companies are demanding for multi-language programmers.
With newer languages being developed yearly, probabilities of working with many languages in most companies have increased a great deal compared to 10 years ago when most companies used just one stack for all applications.
This is why we teach the top 3 different programming languages to cope with the evolving world of today.
- You become a better programmer by knowing multiple programming languages and frameworks.
All computer programming languages have similar fundamentals that do not change and are built with common building block of If/Else statements, Variables or Arrays, For loops, Functions, and OOP. Though each language solves the same problem with a different approach.
For instance, if you are tasked with moving a ton of locks, you can approach this task simply by moving it all at once because you can drive a truck or you can move it a bit at a time because you can only drive a car.
From this example, it is clear that multiple skills of know how to drive a car and a truck will give you an edge over a person that can only drive a car by saving you time, money and energy of moving the blocks in bits. This is also the ease that comes with knowing multiple programming languages.
You can use the best program that can best solve a particular problem.
Learning 3 stacks, in the end, means three different approaches to solve a particular problem which is similar to having different tools in our toolbox. This will save you lots of time, energy and cost that could arise from approaching a problem with only one programming skill.
