Developing software can be daunting, intellectually challenging, nerve-racking and time consuming. To overcome those obstacles, increase their prospects of success and drastically cut down on development time, developers resort to frameworks and libraries. Simply put, a framework is a proven and reliable design or configuration of the components of your software while a library is a set of error-free program code organized into functions. By utilizing frameworks and libraries, developers avoid “reinventing the wheel” and employ tested and reliable solutions to often recurring problems. Development time and effort is also reduced by half.
