What is Electron?

Electron is an open-sourced framework for building Desktop GUI applications using web technologies. It’s developed and maintained by GitHub and uses the Chromium rendering engine and the Node.js runtime to process and render HTML and CSS.

Electron is behind some of our favorite desktop applications such as Facebook Messenger, Slack, Discord, WhatsApp, Atom Text Editor, and Visual Studio Code.

What is an Electron Developer?

An Electron Developer is really just a software developer, either back-end or front-end, who is familiar with the Electron framework. They have experience with Node.js as well as HTML/CSS and writing backend logic using JavaScript

Hire an Electron Developer

With JavaScript being the dominant language on the web, how awesome would it be if our desktop applications were built using the same technologies? Electron makes that possible, which means that any JavaScript developer can pick up Electron pretty quickly. 

Unfortunately, not all software developers are interested in desktop development. This means that there won’t be many developers on the market that can confidently put this on their resume in comparison to web frameworks like React and Angular. 

There’s no need to be discouraged, there are most certainly plenty of developers out there with Electron expertise, you’ll just have to invest a little more time searching for them. 

With all of the freelance marketplaces and job boards available, you’d think it would be easy to find your rockstar and get started. How do you go about deciding if a developer joins your team?
