Trends to Guide Your Choice of Programming Language This Year
Software programmers have learned programming languages in order to do their job but learning a programming language is not a one-and-done type thing. There are a myriad of programming languages and new ones are constantly being developed. So, programmers must continue to educate themselves about the newest and best programming languages. While there are many programming languages, there is only so much time and ability to learn new languages so one must narrow the list to the best and most likely to be used/in demand. Below we take a closer look at some of the best programming languages to learn in 2019.
Hottest Programming Languages for 2019
Python has been compared to SQL and Java by some, is very user-friendly and easy-to-learn, and it has been growing in popularity over the last few years due to its machine learning capabilities. Python provides a brief description of some of its notable features, “Python is an interpreted, object-oriented, high-level programming language with dynamic semantics. Its high-level built in data structures, combined with dynamic typing and dynamic binding, make it very attractive for Rapid Application Development, as well as for use as a scripting or glue language to connect existing components together.”
Everywhere you look as a programmer you will see C/C++ language being used. While it is one of the harder programming languages to learn, if you are a programmer that prefers working at the system-level, this is a language to learn as soon as possible!
Designed by Microsoft, C# has many similarities to C++ and is used primarily to program native Windows applications; but it can be used for other platforms as well. It is also quite popular for building phone apps and Virtual Reality.
Scala and Java are often compared because Scala was built on top of Java but DZone explains what advantages Scala has to offer, “Scala's complex features promote better coding and offer a performance increase. Functions, macros, and tuples are just a few of the advancements Scala offers. Scala incorporates functional programming and object-oriented programming into a powerful language…Testing and development are also amplified. Scala can perform the same tasks as Java with fewer lines of code…Scala is a different language than Java, but that doesn't mean developers need to reinvent the wheel. Scala allows compatibility and interoperability with Java."
Rust is a general-purpose, C-like language, but has many differences and advantages - particularly the fact that it is much safer than C languages. It is a low-level code, ideal for systems. Because it is a managed code from beginning to end, it is far less vulnerable to security threats than other code.
Java has been around for a while and does not appear to be going anywhere. It is one of those programming languages worth learning because there is plenty of demand for programmers that know Java. If you want a job in the corporate world, this is simply a must-know language.
Concluding the Top Programming Languages of 2019
As the software industry continues to evolve, we narrowed the most in-demand languages for 2019. Some possibilities are:
- Mobile developers use: Swift, Java, C#
