There are tons of programming languages out there. Organizations rely on different programming languages according to their need. With the right kind of programming language, one can achieve the business goal easily. Some of these programming languages have an active community support so it is easier to get and give help.
Here is a list of programming languages that stood out in the competition from a sea of more than 700 programming languages out there.
Python is easy to understand and you can use it land a wonderful career in the rapidly developing data science industry. Python has better code readability as compared to other languages. The role of Python in networking and AI will be vast in the future.
Java offers a best combination of performance, productivity and observability which makes it one of the industry’s most widely used languages. Java is used to develop web applications, mobile applications, games, cloud applications, etc. Java will be more responsive to latest trends in development.
C++ is one of the standard languages within back-end development. So many tools and frameworks depend on the speed and efficiency of C++. As per the TIOBE index of 2022, C++ lies at 4th position in the world’s most popular language. C++ is efficient because it is old and a lot of code is already written in this language.
R is one of the most demanding programming languages for Data Scientists and Statisticians. Being an open-source language, it is continuously expanding, people from all over the world are contributing to its development.
We saw that programming languages kept evolving with the evolution of architecture and better understanding of its ancestors advantages and disadvantages. So master any one of these and these advancements in programming languages and software development overall have helped us push the boundaries of what is possible.
