The technology industry is an exciting place to be in with several career opportunities for upskilling and advancement. The sector has attracted attention from millions of pursuers leading to tougher competition and challenges. The sector is diverse and broad with opportunities across software engineering, coding, programming and several more. In order to stand out and improve their chances of success, one should be well-prepared.
If you are among those looking for a career in tech, here are some of the top skills you should focus upon:
To be an expert in the technology industry, one should have a thorough comprehension of computer programming languages and expert knowledge of Object-Oriented Programming (OOP) languages.
OOP is a technique of structuring code and ensuring it maximises reuseability. Java, Python, and C Sharp are a few of the popular OOP languages in the market; these languages are used to create everything from games to mobile apps and websites.
From booking a taxi to shopping and streaming movies on an OTT platform, everything is getting digitised and becoming futuristically smart with technology. Amid all these new changes, understanding basic programming fundamentals for development of such platforms has become the need of the era.
Out of all the languages, Python is a good choice for beginners as it is English-easy to learn. But one has to choose which language interests them based on the project they are working on.
To develop a mobile app, you may want to begin with Java or Kotlin for Android and Swift for iOS respectively. If you want to build a website, then you should choose Javascript, PHP and CSS.
Data Structures and Algorithms (DSA) is not only a top skill to have, but it’s pretty simple to acquire it too. Data Structure is a way of collecting and organizing data to ensure performing operations on data can be done effectively.
In the current time and age, many tech professionals do not take it seriously as they feel it’s not an essential skill and is complicated. Data structures like Hash Tables, Trees, Tries, Graphs alongside algorithms leads a candidate further in solving problems efficiently.
During an interview, a candidate possessing the knowledge of DSA automatically puts them in a favorable position.
An operating system is an essential software to run a computer. It manages the computer’s memory and maintains its software and processes. Operating Systems allow one to communicate with the computer without knowing the binary language.
In short, without an operating system, a computer is useless. A few examples of operating systems are Windows, Linux, and Android.
Operating Systems are part of the fundamental hygiene and apex of programming. If a programmer ever makes it to the finish line of building a functional OS from scratch, that programmer will definitely win best of the opportunities.
Coding is at the heart of any tech product or digital service. The core languages for most programming and web and app development positions include Bootstrap, Angular, Code Igniter, JavaScript, and SQL.
But knowing different coding languages isn’t enough. The written code and structuring styles must be top-notch. Therefore, adapting to writing code your team likes reading could be both fulfilling and challenging.
But if you succeed, it will not just make you an excellent resource for the company but would pave the way for you to become a great developer.
