BELLEVUE, Wash., July 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Coding Dojo, a nationwide pioneer in the coding bootcamp space, today released research into the programming and software development technologies used at the top privately-held startups in the US valued at over $1 billion, otherwise known as “unicorn” companies. This research includes lists of the most common programming languages, frameworks and database technologies across all 25 unicorns and a breakdown of which companies are using which languages.
Coding Dojo’s research is meant to help experienced developers or new students determine the best programming languages and technologies to learn based on the companies they want to work for. The report also illuminates software development trends among some of the hottest technology companies in America.
“We’re always staying on the pulse of the software development industry so that we can better prepare our students for the rapidly-changing technology job market,” said Richard Wang, CEO at Coding Dojo. “This analysis has turned up some interesting results, like the popularity of Kotlin and Go, but more importantly it gives developers a roadmap for what skills and languages they need to learn to get hired at their dream company. Whether you choose to attend one of our ten campuses around the country or online, Coding Dojo can prepare you to get a job at some of the most innovative companies in the world.”
Languages and Developer Technologies Used at the Top 10 US Unicorns:
|Rank||Company Name||Programming Languages Used||Frameworks Used||Databases Used|
|2||JUUL Labs||Java, C, C++, Python, Go|
|7||Epic Games||Go, Java, Python, Perl, Shell||MongoDB, MySQL, PostgreSQL|
|10||Wish||PHP, Python, Golang, Ruby, Java, C, C++, Go, Perl||ReactJS, Hadoop||MySQL, MongoDB, Redis|
“While most of these programming languages and technologies will be familiar to any working developer, individuals looking to work at these unicorn companies would do well to learn them,” said Coding Dojo Director of West Coast Campus Operations Donovan An. “At Coding Dojo we revise our curriculum regularly to ensure we’re teaching students the most in-demand technologies in the market today, and this research will absolutely factor into those decisions.”
