Thimal Jayasooriya, Head of Software Architecture of Salpo Technologies Ltd. says,
Large corporations such as Google and Facebook have joined open source developers in developing and promoting their frameworks of choice (angular.js and react.js respectively) and there is still significant competition in the space as projects like vue.js have sprung up to provide viable alternatives to speed up development and make the language more accessible to a diverse audience. There are public repositories of reusable code for every conceivable task and interface requirement and an exciting ecosystem of support tools for everything from dependency and build management tasks to accessing obscure hardware components.

- It has an easy debugging option. You can press the F5 button and a debugger will pop up on your screen, which can help you identify the bug, test it, and fix it.

Michael Yurushkin, CTO & Founder of Brouton Lab says,
“My favorite framework for front-end development is React and here is why:
- You can build a high-quality UI with fewer efforts using its declarative components.
- Number of developer tools and reusable components available for React speed up the developer’s work. You make more money in less time by doing things quickly.”
Eugene Granovsky, Founder of Bellawatt says,
“We spend 30% of our time in coding as a front-end dev. We try to stay framework-agnostic but almost always end up using reactjs - its core concept of storing UI as its own value allows us to make highly modular and flexible products. Plus, the ecosystem is fantastic.”

Rameez Ghayas Usmani from Pure VPN says,
“COBOL underpins the world’s financial infrastructure. Without COBOL, the world economy would literally collapse. So, COBOL applications must continue to be maintained and updated.
Also, for typical business applications, COBOL is a strong language. After all, that’s what it was designed for! And business fundamentals have not changed in over half a century. Corporations that send bills, accept payments, do inventory, investment, offer banking and insurance services use COBOL.
Banks and insurance companies use COBOL, on IBM Mainframes, Iseries but also on UNIX AIX systems. I’ve worked in banks, insurance companies, and software editors (aircraft maintenance and wholesale trade).
I have worked for various companies that tried to replace their IT operations on Cobol/Mainframes with any other programming languages but have either failed to replace or decided against the replacement because of the risks, costs, and complexity involved.”
