Learning Path for "Developer Practitioner" certifications
Role of a "Developer" in building EDA
The role of a Developer in modern times goes beyond the piece of code produced and run in a silo. The resulting module could be the crucial cog in the wheel that keeps business running smoothly. On that basis, considerations on aspects beyond the code and choices around design, architecture, and tools become critical. Above all, the design and implementation to fulfill non-functional requirements start in the development phase itself.
A Developer has to have intimate knowledge of the approach and technique to implement a solution. However, they also need to know macro elements such as architecture, integration modes, employed patterns, and tools - so that delivered code/components augurs well with the rest of the system.
Few things the developers have to absorb before writing the first line of code:
- Practise the "event-driven" thinking
- Familiarize with the planned integration patterns
- Master the message-exchange patterns
- Make the best use of features, tools, and frameworks of the EDA platform
