Developer Spotlight - Ivan Vlatkovic
Welcome to our "Developer Spotlight" series, where we ask app developers to share their insights and advice!
This time, we spoke to Ivan, a Senior Developer Architect and the reigning champion of our AI Hackathon.
What's your favourite framework, and why?
"As a senior web developer, my favourite framework is React.js. I appreciate its component-based architecture, which promotes reusability and maintainability. The strong community support and a rich ecosystem of libraries and tools contribute to its overall appeal."
What's your favourite React Native library, and why?
"For React Native development, I find 'React Navigation' indispensable. Navigation is a crucial aspect of mobile app development, and React Navigation provides a flexible and extensible solution. Its ease of use, customization options, and consistent updates make it my preferred choice for implementing navigation in React Native applications."
What's a must-have for any app developer?
"In my opinion, a must-have for any app developer is a strong foundation in problem-solving and a continuous learning mindset. The tech industry evolves rapidly, and staying updated with the latest technologies and best practices is crucial. The ability to adapt to change, troubleshoot issues effectively, and seek out new solutions ensures that developers can deliver high-quality, innovative applications in a dynamic environment."
What advice would you give someone who's just started as a developer?
"For someone starting as a developer, I would advise focusing on building a solid understanding of the fundamentals. Take the time to learn the basics of programming languages, algorithms, and data structures. Embrace challenges and problem-solving, as they are integral to growth. Additionally, actively engage with the developer community, attend meetups, and contribute to open-source projects. Continuous learning and collaboration are key to a successful and fulfilling career in development."
