The whole programming world is full of frameworks and it is not just Salesforce that has come up with a lightning framework but almost all big giants like Facebook, Google, Twitter etc. have their own frameworks. But why I am big fan of the lightning framework is that it is the only complete component framework and platform for developing end to end enterprise applications while all other of them are very shallow focusing only on the view part of the application. Let’s go through and high-level overview of all these frameworks one by one so that you are at least aware that what all frameworks exist – the major ones.
Polymer by Google
It is a framework used to build single page applications on top of web component technologies. Its components and directives in angular look very similar and it will be interesting to see how Google will carry forward both of these simultaneously.
React by Facebook
Flight by Twitter
Brick by Mozilla
It is a collection of user interface components which are designed for simplicity and ease of building web application’s interface. It is not just a framework or rather it is not a framework and is primarily used to build web application interfaces using the web component standards.
Lightning by Salesforce
You can write your own custom new application or you can even override the standard functionality provided to you by salesforce very easily. They also lightning Builder which allows salesforce admins to create lightning applications by simply dragging and dropping components. When the giant processes billions of transactions every day no one can doubt its capability of building enterprise applications.
Since lighting is a very big and vast framework it does require some efforts from your side to learn and master it. Since everything is lightning now and hence it becomes important to master this topic but then again like any other language or technology it becomes difficult for a newbie to find and follow the correct path, there could be in finite questions arising in his or her mind as to what what books to read, what topics need to be covered in detail and which should be given less importance. Which blogs to follow and much much more. It’s a natural phenomena and hence requires a structured training program that takes the learner from very basic to advanced level within shortest amount of time and at the lowest cost. The in-house or corporate training might not be affordable for everyone and hence the courses at get skills fast come in handy for you. These are step-by-step self-paced courses which you can take any time on any device as per your comfort. More than 70,000 students have taken these courses till date and all are working on respectable positions in their life now.
