Skills required to become Scala/React.js developer

In a Scala/React.js developer job, he/she should be eager to improve their knowledge of Facebook's most well-known JavaScript library. The following are some of the most important abilities required in a Scala/React.js developer job:


There is no single front-end developer who is unfamiliar with HTML and CSS. An organization should be able to work with these and craft user interfaces. The Scala/React.js developers should be able to –

  • Work on and write semantic HTML tags.
  • Write and work with CSS selectors.
  • Implement a reset of CSS.
  • Understand the flexbox and box model and reset to the border box.
  • Implement responsive web principles along with use of media queries.

2. JSX

JSX is used to encapsulate the React.createElement() API. Without it, growing the API would be too tough, which is one of the reasons it's so important to the library and why the React team chose it in the first place. Theoretically, React.createElement() might be used to create a whole application. That would, however, be no quicker than using HTML directly. Although it may appear like incorporating our Markup into our template logic is a step backward, it just takes a few minutes using JSX to fall in love with the look.

3. Java and Python

Java is statically typed and compiled, whereas Python is dynamically typed and interpreted. Because of this one difference, Java is quicker at runtime and simpler to debug, but Python is easier to use and understand. Python's popularity stems in large part from its communicability; people just understand it better. It comes with a slew of Python libraries, so even the most inexperienced programmer won't have to start from scratch. Java has a vast number of libraries and a strong community since it is ancient and still widely used. As a Scala/React.js engineer, you should be well-versed in both languages.

4. Spark, Hadoop and MapReduce

You must be knowledgeable with Spark, Hadoop, and MapReduce in order to be successful in a Scala/React.js developer job. For years, Hadoop had been the undisputed king of big data, until Spark came along. Since its original release in 2014, Apache Spark has been sparking the world of big data. Because of its user-friendly APIs and expected speeds of up to 100 times faster than Hadoop MapReduce, some commentators believe Spark has marked the advent of a new era in big data.

5. ETL architecture

ETL plays a big role in the data integration process (extract, transform, and load). It's the backbone of today's business intelligence and analytics workloads, efficiently transporting and altering data from source to goal. Understanding how ETL works is one thing; creating a company-wide ETL infrastructure is quite another. Like real-world construction projects, ETL architecture necessitates a strategy and a solid foundation to guarantee that your process satisfies your present needs and expands with you as you grow.
