Other Technologies Developers Should Know

These software frameworks or technologies aren’t technically programming languages, but are still important for developers to know in 2018 and are commonly advertised technical skills for developers found on Indeed.

  • SQL: SQL is the standard query language for storing, retrieving and manipulating data in databases. It’s not technically a programming language since it lacks looping and other basic functions, but extensions like PL/SQL have added some of these. SQL is in extremely high job demand, with over 30,000 more job postings mentioning it than our top programing language, Java. If you only have time to learn one new technology in 2018, this is the one to pick.
  • .NET: .NET is Microsoft’s platform for desktop, web, mobile, gaming and IoT app development. It was made open-source in 2016 and is used by the C#, Visual Basic and F# programming languages. .NET Core, a cross platform .NET implementation, extends .NET to iOS, Linux, and Android. Many Windows applications run on .NET, making it extremely prevalent in the business world and we expect it to become more popular now that it’s become open-source.
  • Node: Node.js is an open-source run-time environment that allows JavaScript code to be run on the server side, allowing web developers to use one language for an entire web application. Node.js was the twelfth most-popular technology in our analysis, not good enough to make the list but enough to show a solid demand for these skills. We recommend that any JavaScript developers spend some time with Node.js to make themselves more well-rounded, even if they focus on the client side.
  • MEAN: The MEAN stack (MongoDB, ExpressJS, AngularJS and Node.js) ranked eighteenth in our analysis. Using the MEAN stack allows you to create an entire application using JavaScript, which is simple, quick and highly versatile. Learning MEAN will give any developer a strong background in one of the most common and active programming languages in the world.
