So what are the ten popular programming languages today?
This is an extremely popular programming language. Not only is it essential for developing Android apps, but also for building server-side applications, video games and mobile apps. Java is part of the HyperionDev Software Engineering course.
Certainly Python falls under the list of ten popular programming languages. This language is great, because it’s often claimed that it’s the easiest language to learn and it’s a one-stop shop: there’s a Python framework for most things, including web apps and data analysis. Noteworthy applications built with Python include Pinterest and Instagram. If you’re interested in this language, the HyperionDev Software Engineer Bootcamp will appeal to you.
This is often the first programming language taught in College, and is one of the oldest programming languages (created in the early 1970s). It’s a good ‘in-between’ language that incorporates object-oriented features without being too extreme about it. C is often used for embedded systems – for example, the firmware of your TV or the operating system of an airplane.
5. Ruby (also known as Ruby on Rails)
Ruby is easy to learn, in high demand, and a major supplier of web apps. It’s a server-side web application framework.
PHP is often used with data-heavy websites and app development. It’s behind WordPress and Facebook. The really good news: it’s an open-source language, so there are lots of free pre-built modules that you can use and modify for your projects.
9. SQL (Structured Query Language)
This database query language is used for dealing with big data. SQL helps you select the required data from huge databases. Interestingly, it’s the fastest growing open-source relational database management system. So far, there have been 100 million downloads.
This is also an offshoot of the C programming language, which was created back in 1983. Its range is wide, from desktop web apps to server infrastructure. It is frequently used for tasks that require high performance, such as video editing and transcoding, high-end computer-aided design, image processing, games, telecommunications and business. Flight control systems could be written in C++, so too could high-volume trading financial exchanges.
Whatever language you decide you learn, you will be pick up valuable programming skills. If you decide to learn one of the ten popular programming languages, it will be easier to pick up additional computer languages.
