Top 5 programming languages in 2019

For beginners, there were so many doubts like whether to learn Java or C#? What are the other trending programming languages in the market? Where are they used? What is the market demand?

Here is what we will let you know about top programming languages in demand.

 

No.5 C#

C# is Microsoft’s product for building application on the .net framework. It is a pretty powerful language that is used for different tasks, like designing Web Forums, developing Web Applications, Windows Applications, Console App.

C# is also used for developing games using the “Unity” game engine.

As a beginner C# is moderately easy to learn. 3-4 months for basics and around 2 years to become a fairly competent developer. But if you are already familiar with C++ and Java then learning C# will be like super easy for you.

 

 

No.4 Swift

Swift is the language used for developing apps for MacOs, iOS, WatchOS. The reason why Swift is No.4 is because it’s  becoming one of the favourites of software developers.

It is easier to read, easier to maintain, it is faster, safer and requires less lines of code.

So if you are an Apple fan and want to code for the future then swift is for you. Swift was designed to reduce the gap between the human mind and computer operations. Which is why syntax wise, swift is pretty simple. Some say that you will just take around 3-4 months start building apps with Swift.

 

 

No.3 Java

Java, the most common programming language in the world, well-paying job and great community support. Java is so versatile that it can be used to develop almost anything. Games, Android apps, Web apps, IoT, Cloud Development and it’s goes on and on..

Indirectly, you use java everyday. When you logo to Facebook, Amazon, Ebay, LinkedIn.  The creators of java were strongly influenced by C/C++. So if you know your OOPS concepts then java is pretty easy to learn. But if you are absolutely new to programming then you might 3-6 months to learn the basics of java. But the good news is that community support is top-notch. So as a beginner you will find a lot of help online.

 

 

No.2 Python

Next is Python which as been around for more than 25 years and is not in a mood to go anywhere. Even though it was started as a scripting language but now it is a general purpose programming language. Which means it can be used for almost anything like Web Development, Game Development, Computer Vision which involves face recognition and colour detection but most importantly, Data Science. Working with python is a dream because it is readable, maintainable and compatible with major platforms and systems. Python is like air. It’s everywhere but you can’t see it. Netflix recommending you stuff to watch, that’s Python. Amazon recommending you stuff to buy that’s also Python. Because Python is so heavy on Data Science and machine learning, it is used by Google, Youtube and even the NewYork Stock Exhange.

Coming to ease of learning, Pythan as a language in terms of syntax and basics its pretty easy to learn. But then again, using Python to design algorithms that solve complex problem depends on how smart you are and experience.

 

Now before I tell you the #1 programming language here are 3 specials that didn’t mention in the list but are pretty important.

  1. C/C++

C is the foundation language and C++ was built on the top of C is very versatile language.  C++ if you master it, provides you with speed-enhancing and optimization techniques which improve the performance which is why it is used in everything, from software development to gaming, building desktop apps. Even applications like Adobe Premiere, Illustrator, Photoshop are scripted in C++.

It is slightly difficult to learn but making it your first language has two advantages.

  • #1. You get introduced to the fundamental Computer Science concepts like heaps, stacks, pointers, memory management etc.
  • #2. If you start with C++, then learning other languages like java/C# is going to be very easy.

 

  1. SQL

Now SQL is not a programming language but it is a language for data manipulation. In real-world, you have to deal with a lot of data. You can use C++/Java/C# for coding your functionality but in the backend, you need SQL for retrieving data, inserting records, deleting records, creating records, granting permissions.

 

  1. Flutter

These days Flutter is making a lot of headlines in the mobile development world and yes, it is not programming language. Yes, coming to that.. Flutter is a mobile app SDK. And what makes it so desirable is that it allows you to write an app in one codebase and compile to both Android and iOS. And it is the primary method for developing apps for Google Fuchsia. And the programming language for Flutter SDK is called DART. Even though they are relatively new and not that stable, they have still been adopted by Alibaba, Google Ads and many more..

Now it’s time for #! programming language of our list today, for the programming language of 2019.

 

No.1 JavaScript

Yah, Java and JavaScript both are poles apart. JavaScript is a Programming language for sure but it was invented to make web pages come alive. So instead of having a webpage that just sits there and does nothing, thanks to JavaScript, a webpage can now react to user’s action, ask questions to visitors, change the contents of the existing html page, make things run on mouse click and pointer movements. Basically, it makes a webpage dynamic. When your Facebook timeline update on your screen or Google suggest search terms based on few characters that you type in the search box, that’s JavaScript in action.

Now, JavaScript is a client-side programming language which means as a developer you can start coding on the browser itself without having to setup a development environment. But the reason why JavaScript is #1 on our list today is because over the last few years there has been mad development in the JavaScript language. For example,

  • The JavaScropt’s JSON file format is now one of the popular ways of transferring data.
  • Initially, JavaScript was just client-side but now NodeJS, which is the JavaScript runtime environment allows you to build servers using JavaScript.
  • Angular JS which is an MVC framework developed by Google that allows you to create crazy interactive web applications because it extends HTML with new attributes. Infact, the modern onepage Gmail application has been developed using AngularJS and a couple of other Frameworks.

Another reason for choosing #1 is its quite easy to learn. You might take around 1-2 months. But along with that add JSON, NodeJS, AngularJS, React to your skillset as well.
