How to become a Backend Node.js/RabbitMQ developer ?

Message queues allow different applications to send and receive messages via an intermediary platform. Such a platform is called a message broker or queue manager. The RabbitMQ program is an example of a message queue; it acts as an intermediary between applications that have different throughputs. The computer program facilitates asynchronous communication between two systems.

Node.js, an open-source, cross-platform runtime environment, is used for server-side JavaScript. It features Google’s V8 engine, libuv for cross-platform compatibility, and a core library. Because it's single-threaded, Node.js was designed to build scalable network applications that respond to events asynchronously, which makes it useful for real-time, push-based architectures. Although primarily used for traditional websites and back-end API services, Node.js has also become popular for building complex systems like chat servers and media aggregators due to its ability to handle a high number of concurrent connections in an efficient manner.

Due to their high efficiency and ability to manage several concurrent connections, Node.js/RabbitMQ have become popular choices for companies with Backend Node.js/RabbitMQ developer jobs growing in demand.

What is the scope of Backend Node.js/RabbitMQ development?

The RabbitMQ developers, a team of skilled developers using the RabbitMQ software, are responsible for fulfilling employers’ expectations by designing tools that allow for the continuous growth of the software.

Node.js is currently the most popular technology for backend development, with many open-source developers and companies contributing core modules, frameworks, and plug-ins. Node.js is a popular technology for group projects because of its diverse developer community and its resilience to changes in the market. Node.js is a robust and widely used technology with considerable longevity. The future seems bright for Backend Node.js/RabbitMQ developers as they will be needed in all the organizations across several industries.

What are the roles and responsibilities of a Backend Node.js/RabbitMQ developer?

Node.js developers design and write code to build network applications, which run on servers and allow the exchange of data between servers and clients. They work together with other developers to design and manage the software back end, or component, of web-based applications, and they connect applications to other web services. They manage front-end development by integrating web-based applications, based on the designs created by their counterparts.
RabbitMQ is a message broker that quickly delivers web server responses to clients without requiring the client to wait for the result. It can also distribute messages to multiple consumers or load balance between consumers when there is a high load.
Backend Node.js/RabbitMQ developers generally have the following job responsibilities:

  • Implement software engineering best practices to test, deploy, and develop code
  • Design, develop and manage microservices/APIs for applications with high traffic
  • Preparation of technical specifications based on user requirements analysis
  • Configure, install, and administer RabbitMQ across multiple environments
  • Create virtual hosts, exchanges, queues, and setup clustering, security, and virtualization
  • Interact with cross-functional teams and both internal and external stakeholders
  • Perform unit, system integration, and load testing on the features/APIs of the application

How to become a Backend Node.js/RabbitMQ developer?

The position requires a Backend Node.js/RabbitMQ developer with an in-depth knowledge of software development, and message broker. Hence most employers prefer candidates who have majored or otherwise taken coursework in computer science, electrical engineering, or computer engineering. Furthermore, they prefer candidates with extensive experience developing Backend Node.js/RabbitMQ applications.

Pursue an internship during your studies to develop programming skills, improve existing ones, and gain hands-on work experience. An internship also opens doors to contacts and future career opportunities.

Certification as a Backend Node.js/RabbitMQ developer is important for many reasons. For instance, certification distinguishes you from non-certified Backend Node.js/RabbitMQ developers, allowing you to take pride in your accomplishments and know that you are one of the more highly skilled professionals in your field. Certification also opens up doors for better opportunities, which can help you grow professionally and excel in your respective field.

Hard skills or technical skills that work as a foundation for their career are extremely important for developers to mark their position at the top. Backend Node.js/RabbitMQ is a respectable position with a great skill set that should be developed. We've listed some of the most important hard skills that every Backend Node.js/RabbitMQ developer needs to succeed in the workplace below:

Skills required to become a Backend Node.js/RabbitMQ developer

Backend Node.js/RabbitMQ developer jobs require certain skills and basics. So Backend Node.js/RabbitMQ developers must start learning the fundamental skills that can get them high-paying Backend Node.js/RabbitMQ developer jobs. Here is what you need to know!

1. RabbitMQ

RabbitMQ is an open-source message broker that supports many messaging protocols and is often called the hybrid broker. It is used by thousands of organizations worldwide, including PayPal, Mozilla, Cisco, Adobe, and Reddit. The project begins with the philosophy that reliable messaging is fundamental to availability and performance for large-scale applications. In addition to reliability, RabbitMQ aims to integrate easily into the existing distributed architectures. It uses a smart broker/dumb consumer model and focuses on delivering messages to consumers consistently. It offers great performance when configured properly, supports client libraries in Java, Ruby, .NET, PHP, and many other languages. It can handle synchronous and asynchronous communication.

2. Node.JS

Node.js is an open-source, cross-platform, server-side JavaScript runtime environment for executing code outside a web browser. Node.js lets developers use JavaScript to write command-line tools and for server-side scripting, run scripts to produce dynamic web page content before the page is sent to the user's web browser. This is a 'JavaScript everywhere' paradigm that unifies web-application development around a single language, and not different languages for server-side and client-side scripting.

3. Kafka

The Kafka protocol is used for real-time data pipelines and for implementing streaming applications. A data pipeline moves and reliably processes data, while a streaming application consumes streams of data. If you want to use Kafka to create a data pipeline that takes in user activity data in real-time, Kafka would be used to ingest and store streaming data for the platform powering the data pipeline, which serves reads for the applications powering the data pipeline. As a message broker, Kafka is often used to process and mediate communication between two applications.

4. ExpressJS

Express.js is a web server frame for the Node.js platform. Express.js is used to create mobile apps, particularly those that run in a browser or those that are accessed via a web browser. It can be used to build single-page applications or hybrid apps and is most often used in combination with the MVC framework pattern to facilitate more streamlined web-based development operations where JavaScript will be the main language of choice for programmers and developers alike.

5. Experience with Cloud services

Cloud services are a group of computing capabilities that users can access over the internet, usually as software. Cloud infrastructure is a cloud service made up of computer resources—such as memory, processing power, and data storage—from hardware that’s hosted by third-party providers. Platforms are cloud services that allow users to develop their own applications, either with the help of other developers or on their own. A virtual private network (VPN) is an online tool that helps protect users’ information by encrypting it and routing it through specified servers.
