Top 5 Programming Languages to Learn in a gist...
These days everyone wants to become a programmer and start developing but question we all have is what to learn first out of all the programming languages.
When trying to decide which programming language to learn also look for these four traits:
- High salary
- Popularity - plenty of job openings, variety
- Tendency to become more in-demand in the future
- Preferably easy to learn and pleasant to work with
Following are the best programming languages you might profit your developing career.
I, myself prefer C# above all of these and here's why.
Microsoft's object-oriented language has the benefit of being well-documented, relatively easy to learn, with a lot of useful software libraries to avoid developers reinventing the wheel as well as they have the solid IDE I have ever came across with which helps even a beginner to develop without any hassle.
Microsoft's .NET framework and is popular for building Windows desktop applications, as well as web (ASP.NET) and, more recently, mobile apps. Its uses continue to grow as Xamarin tools enable C# to be used to write apps for Android, iOS and other mobile devices.
Mainly used in Machine Learning and Big data analytics. Also used for web and desktop app development. Python code is relatively easy to read and understand, supports multiple programming paradigms, has a wide range of software libraries that can be dropped into code, and can be scaled to large applications.
Java has been the language of choice for writing server-side business software for more than decade. Beyond business, Java is also an official language used for developing Android apps, and is also used for games and web apps.
Despite the shortcomings in its design, PHP has survived for decades, and still underpins popular CMS systems such as WordPress, as well as still being used by major sites such as Google and Facebook. Like Java, PHP's widespread nature means demand for developers is unlikely to go away.
All the above said languages has a large communities backing you up and it is easy to find solutions for any problem.
