Microservices aren’t a new kind on the block anymore. Having proved their efficiency (improved scalability, faster time to market, development productivity, and more), they are now widely adopted by practically all: from prominent technology companies (Netflix, Uber, Groupon) to small local development teams.
When it comes to microservices development, a relevant question is: what language should I use to write microservices?
A sneak peek: you can use practically any programming language for developing microservices architecture. But, it doesn’t mean that this process would be as smooth as you’d expect. So, what are the top languages for microservices? Let’s discover the top!
As we’ve mentioned, writing microservices isn’t bound to a specific framework or a programming language. However, we can’t deny that fact that certain languages make implementation of patterns and principles around microservices architecture more efficient and easy.
Here’s a short list of components and features that must be inherent in a programming language or a framework, so it’s considered efficient enough for microservices implementation:
Now let’s review each language in detail.
Java, a language with a 20+ history, is loved by many developers for its readability, maintainability, and variety of microservices frameworks that include Spring Boot, Play!, DropWizard, Spark Java, Swagger, and Jersey. Let’s briefly review the top Java frameworks for microservices:
Go, or Golang amazes with its speed and support for concurrency in terms if microservices development. Concurrency realized in Golang efficiently boosts running across several cores and machines. In addition, Go boasts several powerful frameworks:
Looking at Golang perks for building microservices, no wonder it’s such a popular language. To build your project with savvy Golang developers from QArea, contact us and let’s schedule a call!
Python enables a RESTful approach to creating APIs, thus, efficiently using web protocols like HTTP and toolkits for remote object search and manipulation. Why is Python advantageous to writing microservices?
To sum up, we’d like to cite a recent report by Red Hat. The report reveals that 45% DevOps have no preference in a particular language or a framework when it comes to building microservices. Instead, they claim that it’s better to choose the right tool for the task. At this point, we couldn’t agree more.
