13 Things You Should Consider When Interviewing a JavaScript Developer

Nowadays more and more companies focus on front-end development, putting the UI/UX component of their software products in the first place. JavaScript is considered to be the language of future. Therefore, the job websites are now full of vacancies that invite JavaScript developers to join the front-end development teams, and sometimes the demand is even higher than supply.

If you’re looking for a professional, experienced and highly-qualified JavaScript developer, then you have come to the right place. In this article, we are going to highlight some key technical skills that are a must for JavaScript programmers.

Must-Have Technical Skills of a JavaScript Programmer

  1. Deep understanding of JavaScript itself, for example, understanding of prototypal inheritance, functional programming vs. object-oriented programming, and some variations of a module pattern.
  2. Good understanding of AJAX – a set of client-side web development methods that is used to create asynchronous web applications.
  3. Basic understanding of web markup, including HTML5 and CSS3.
  4.     Knowledge of advanced JavaScript libraries and frameworks, such as AngularJS, KnockoutJS, BackboneJS, ReactJS, etc. – depending on the stack of your project.

  8.     Ability to name the pros and cons of monolithic vs. microservice architectures.
