Top 10 Frameworks & Libraries Programmers can Learn in 2021 [UPDATED]

Hello Guys, we are just a few days away from 2021 now, and many of you might have already made your goals about what to learn in 2021, but if you haven't, then you have come to the right place. In this article, I am sharing some of the best frameworks and libraries for web development, mobile app development, and big data, an application developer can learn in 2021. The New Year will be all about the mobile. Machine learning, and next-generation web with a greater focus on big data technologies like Hadoop and Spark, but you can still learn the popular Java and Web development frameworks like React, Node.js, Spring Boot to take your career to the next level. These frameworks are tried and tested and will be here for at least the next 5 years to come.

I have always believed in full-stack development, which means a Programmer should know both front-end and back-end technologies, and now it also includes mobile development technologies like Android or iOS.

My simple advice for a Java programmer is to learn Android while for the C++ programmer is to iOS so that you can create your own apps, do some freelancing and improve your chances of getting a job in the lucrative mobile app development sector.

In this highly competitive world where technologies get out-dated very quickly, the only thing which helps a programmer is their learning ability. If you are a quick learner and can learn the technology which is in demand currently, you can always found the job and the exciting work you are looking for.

10 Frameworks & Libraries Developers Can Learn in 2021

Here is my list of some of the best web, mobile, and big data technologies for a programmer to learn in 2021. These technologies will not only make your resume more attractive but also help you to take your career to the next level in the same job.

It's essential to keep moving forward because if you are stuck, then you won't grow, and learning new and popular technologies always helps to break the shackles.

1. Spring Boot

Spring Boot makes it easy to create stand-alone, production-grade Spring based Applications that you can "just run." Spring Boot takes an opinionated view of the Spring platform and third-party libraries so you can get started with minimum fuss. If you are a Java developer working on web development, then I strongly suggest you learn Spring Boot in 2021.

Another good news to share with you guys that NetBeans has added support for Spring Boot, so it's now easier to learn and develop Java web applications using Spring Boot 2. 0.

If you decide to learn Spring Boot in 2021 then Master Microservices with Spring Boot and Spring Cloud is a great course to start with. It's currently available at almost a 95% discount on Udemy until this week.

2. React.js

React is a JavaScript library for building user interfaces. It's declarative: React uses a declarative paradigm that makes it easier to reason about your application.

It's efficient: React computes the minimal set of changes necessary to keep your DOM up-to-date. And it's flexible: React works with the libraries and frameworks.

In short, A declarative, dynamic, and flexible JavaScript library for building user interfaces. If you decide to learn React in 2021, then Modern React with Hooks is an excellent online course to start with.

3. Node.js

Node.js is a JavaScript runtime built on Chrome's V8 JavaScript engine. It allows you to write a server-side application in JavaScript. Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient.

If you learn Node.js and React, then you can write a client-server application in just one programming language, JavaScript.

If you decide to learn Node.js in 2021, then I suggest checking out The complete Node.js Developer Course, one of the best course to start with.

4. Angular

Angular is an open-source JavaScript framework, maintained by Google, that assists with running single-page applications. Its goal is to augment web-based applications with model–view–controller (MVC) capability, to make both development and testing easier.

It's very different from its predecessor Angular JS, which is outdated now, but learning Angular 2 or Angular 8 is still a great idea in 2021.

If you decide to learn Angular in 2021, then I suggest you first check the Angular: Getting Started course from Pluralsight, one of the best courses to learn Angular.

Btw, you would need a Pluralsight membership to get access to this course, which costs around $29 per month or $299 annually (14% discount).

If you don't have Pluralsight membership, I encourage you to get one because it allows you to access their 5000+ online courses on all the latest topics like front-end and back-end development, machine learning, etc.

It's more like Netflix for Software Developers, and Since learning is an integral part of our job, Pluralsight membership is a great way to stay ahead of your competition.

They also provide a 10-day free trial without any commitment, which is a great way to not just access this course for free but also to check the quality of courses before joining Pluralsight.

5. TensorFlow

If you are curious about Artificial intelligence, Data Science, and Machine learning then I am sure you have heard about TensorFlow, Google's machine learning API, which they have used to develop the RankBrain algorithm for Google Search.

TensorFlow is one of the most popular machine learning API which allows you to automate several real-world tasks, for example, you can use it for image detection. In fact, a Japanese farmer turned programmer used it to detect the best quality Cucumber, which only his father and mother can do with his years of experience.

That's the power of machine learning, which is now available to everyone because of TensorFlow. It's a good idea to learn cutting-edge technology like Machine learning in 2021, and there is no better library to start with than TensorFlow.

If you have decided to learn TensorFlow in 2021, then The Complete Guide to TensorFlow for Deep Learning with Python is a perfect course to start with.

6. .NET Core

ASP.NET Core is a free and open-source web framework, and the next generation of ASP.NET, developed by Microsoft and the community. It is a modular framework that runs on both the full .NET Framework, on Windows, and the cross-platform. If you are a Microsoft technology developer, then this is what you should learn in 2021, and the ASP NET CORE Crash Course is an excellent place to start with.

7. Spark

Apache Spark is an open-source cluster-computing framework. Apache Spark is one of the fast and general engines for big data processing, with built-in modules for streaming, SQL, machine learning, and graph processing it's quickly gaining market share from Hadoop and similar technologies.

If you are looking for a new and exciting career in Big Data, then I strongly suggest you learn Spark in 2021, and Apache Spark with Java is a good place to start with.

If you need more choices, you can also check out this list of Big Data and Apache Spark courses for reference.

8. Firebase

Firebase is Google's mobile platform that helps you quickly develop high-quality mobile apps and grow your business. You can choose Firebase as a backend for your Android or iOS application.

If you are looking to move into the lucrative business of mobile application development in 2021, then learning Firebase is a perfect idea, and Advanced iOS and Firebase: Rideshare is an excellent place to start with.

9. Xamarin

Xamarin is a way to make mobile apps quickly for all platforms with a single, shared C# codebase, build a custom native user interface for each platform, or use Xamarin Forms to write an individual shared user interface across platforms.

It's owned by Microsoft and quickly becoming famous for creating mobile apps for C, C++, and C# developers.

If you already know one of that C language and looking for a career in mobile app development then I strongly suggest you learn Xamarin in 2021 and if you need a resource then The Complete Xamarin Developer Course: iOS And Android! by Tim Buchalaka on Udemy is a good course to start with.

10. React Native

This is another mobile application development framework based upon JavaScript and the popular React framework. React Native is an extension of React, a popular JavaScript framework to develop web applications, which allows you to build native Android and iOs apps in JavaScript.

Unlike Ionic and Cordova, which promotes write once run everywhere but doesn't offer you to create a native app, React Native does convert your code into native code, especially for GUI.

This is a massive advantage for any JavaScript developer who wants to write the mobile application he has always dreamed about.

React Native along with Redux is becoming increasingly popular and turned out to be a valuable skill for your resume if you are looking for a job in the mobile app development space as well

If you decided to learn React Native in 2021, then The Complete React Native and Redux Course by Stephen Grider is the best course to start with. 

That's all about some of the popular web development, mobile, machine learning, and big data frameworks and libraries application developers should learn in 2021. I especially like to focus on next-generation technologies like Big Data and Machine Learning and suggest you do so.

There is a lot of demand for Data Scientists, and they are also getting excellent pay, on average $120,000, and that's the reason many friends and colleagues are switching to Data Science jobs. I'll talk about more in the next article, where I'll share my tips to become Data Science in 2021.
