Do you want to be a backend programmer? Languages to study
Last week we talked about the main programming languages, beyond HTML, to be able to apply for a job as a frontend programmer. However, what about the backend?
Web pages generally have two different types of content. On the one hand, we have the frontend which, as we have explained, is what we see, and which is processed on our computer. And on the other hand, we have the backend, which runs on the server.
Juani Gallo, founder of CourseIt, has shared a new scheme in which it teaches us everything we need to know in order to qualify for a job in backend programmer. It is not necessary to have advanced knowledge about all of them, but we must have at least some basic knowledge about them. In addition, they will help us to get an idea of where we can start.
So is the “” “” roadmap “” “” that we were putting together in the stream. The idea is not that they know everything, but that they know the different options that exist in this branch of programming.
If any changes occur to you, I read them

As we can see, these languages are divided into several levels of difficulty. The basics, to begin with, would be to learn Node, Python, Java, and C #. From these languages it is also necessary to learn to use the main programming frameworks, such as Express, Django, Laravel, Flask and Spring. And, very importantly, working with databases, such as Mongo, Postgress, Firebase, and Redis.
A new scheme that, together with last week’s frontend programmer, summarizes very well everything we need to know if we want to start programming for a company, or for ourselves.
Free games from the Epic Store
Like every Thursday, at 5:00 p.m. Spanish time, the Epic Games Store has withdrawn the free games from last week to offer us, during the next 7 days, to add another two games at no cost to our library. There are already more than 200 games, some better and others worse, that this alternative to Steam has given to all users for the simple fact of being registered on the platform.
This week they leave the MOTHERGUNSHIP store, a mix between bullet hell and FPS, and Train Sim World 2, a complete locomotive driving simulator, to make way for A Plague Tale: Innocence, a grim action / adventure game dating back to the time of the Inquisition, and Minit, a game where you only have 60 seconds to live.
Do not miss the opportunity, and get them while they are available from this link. In addition, we already know what the free game will be next week: Rebel Galaxy, a space fighting game.
Security tip: install this extension in your browser
It is becoming increasingly difficult to maintain security when we browse the Internet. Although web browsers are constantly updated to help us preserve this security, it never hurts to have a little help with which to avoid taking unnecessary risks. And, this time, we are going to talk about an extension known as HTTPS Everywhere.
Thanks to it, we will be able to force the HTTPS connections of all the websites we visit, preventing insecure HTTP connections from being established that could lead to data theft or other computer attacks. An extension that costs nothing to have, that we can deactivate if it gives us problems with a click, and thanks to which we will be able to navigate more safely.
