How to learn any framework easily?

well, every developer has tried in their life to learn a programming framework. Frameworks make programmers' lives easier by abstracting away some programming complexities that would otherwise need a lot of lines of code. With lots of frameworks in existence and many introduced frequently, programmers often need to learn new frameworks for new projects or work requirements. Here are a few tips I think could help fellow programmers learn frameworks faster and easily.

Frameworks are guidelines
-Think of frameworks as guidelines to achieve a solution through the use of a programming language. I agree to unpopular opinion that learning a framework is harder than learning a new programming language. programming languages are more flexible than frameworks which are developed with strict design pattern. However, frameworks are easy to master since they provide known and fixed guidelines

learn the programming language the framework is based on

By learning the programming language the framework is based on rather than straightly jumping into the framework saves more time and banging heads on desks for trying to do what you don't know. It is not a prerequisite to master the underlying programming language and an intermediate understanding of the programming language is considered enough.

learn how frameworks work under the hood
As we stated earlier in the introduction, frameworks abstract away complexities. It is critical to understand the underlying functionalities of the framework. This is useful when debugging, debugging an error you don't understand costs you more effort and time.

practice solving problems with the framework concepts
The best way to learn is to practice, this builds your confidence on the understanding of the concept and affirms your ability to apply the concept to solve real world problems. It is not a must to develop full blown advanced application with the framework as you can get there with time, experience and necessity.

Frameworks are great and boost the productivity of developers.
