TOP PROGRAMMING LANGUAGES YOU NEED TO LEARN TO STAY IN THE RACE
From an Expert to a fresher/beginner everyone always ask the same question which programming language s/he learn to keep themselves in the technology race. The question is not as simple as it sounds. Come let’s start explore which one to prefer and why?
Computer Technology Industry is growing at a fast pace so we need to keep us updated with the latest Trends and conventions of the computer programming /Technology. Technology is evolving in matters of weeks but the time we become expert in one language that is already consider as obsolete.
Now again the same question arise then which language to choose from list let’s get started and see which suits you.
Before choosing a programming language it is extremely important thing to note that programming languages vary greatly in terms of functionality and complexity. so the choice of language is majorly depends on the type of tasks you are going to perform.
But Still the question is unanswered for beginner who are still far away from making a place in industry?
Lets discuss some programming languages that is used by major companies of IT Industries and then we will be able to decide which one suits you.
Let’s say if you have to develop a static website you will prefer the language that is easy to use and implement HTML but if we decide to build a dynamic one then you need think which one to prefer you prefer php, jsp, asp, ruby on rails. The selection of language is greatly depends on the features and functionality of the language.
Lets Discuss top used languages one by one :
Java : Why to learn Java Programming?
Java is the foundation for virtually every type of networked application and is the global standard for developing and delivering embedded and mobile applications, games, Web-based content, and enterprise software. With more than 9 million developers worldwide, Java enables you to efficiently develop, deploy and use exciting applications and services.
From laptops to datacenters, game consoles to scientific supercomputers, cell phones to the Internet, Java is everywhere!
- 97% of Enterprise Desktops Run Java
- 89% of Desktops (or Computers) in the U.S. run Java
- 9 Million Java Developers Worldwide
- #1 Choice for Developers
- #1 Development Platform
- 3 Billion Mobile Phones Run Java
- 100% of Blue-ray Disc Players Ship with Java
- 5 Billion Java Cards in Use
- 125 million TV devices run Java
- 5 of the Top 5 Original Equipment Manufacturers Ship Java ME
As the java is everywhere the demand for the developer of java will increase with time so it is good to have knowledge of java.
C/C++: Why still C/C++?
C and c ++ C has been around for 30 years, As a result of its age and its use as the language of system programming for Unix, C is reasonably close to the machine. When you're working with pointers, bytes, and individual bits, things like optimization techniques start to make a lot more sense. Whenever it comes to performance (speed of execution), C is unbeatable. Major parts of the Windows, Unix and Linux are still written in C. So if you want program these OS or create your own you need to know C. Device drivers of new devices are always written in C. The reason is that C provides you access to the basic elements of the computer. It gives you direct access to memory of your CPU through pointers. It allows you to manipulate and play with bits and bytes.
c/c++ is still as important as it was 15 years back and still used by companies where low level computer programming is done like development of device drivers.
C#:Why its worth Learning C#?
C# is a multi-paradigm language, developed by Microsoft in 2000 as a part of its .net framework, combining principles from C and C++ and advanced features of Java.
C# language is used to develop almost all types of software applications that come with Visual Studio IDE. It is a general-purpose language used to develop software for Microsoft and Windows platforms. It is also used to develop Windows Form Application or Windows Phone Application.
C# could get you a job. The growth of C# was spurred by the release of Windows 8. C# is currently the most used language in the development of third-party apps for Windows. It also is a very popular language on mobile devices, including the Windows Phone.
C# is also the most-used language in programming for Windows Silver light, which in 2011 became more popular than Adobe Flash.
C# is simple and can be used in development of windows, console and web based applications without changing much of the syntax.
PHP :Why its worth Learning PHP?
PHP is a server-side language with files that are processed before they are sent to a client computer. It’s easily available in even the cheapest shared hosting servers and runs some of the biggest web sites on the Internet including Facebook. PHP also serves as the engine for most blogging platforms, including WordPress.
PHP is as powerful as other web development languages and can be easily integrated with the simplicity of HTML and Java Script. PHP is used by many biggest website on the internet due to the simplicity and extensibility of PHP.
PHP can be used in developing a small website to a large cms systems so the job opportunity in PHP is always there.
Python: Why Python?
