Top 5 Programming Languages to learn in 2019

If you are reading this, you’ve either decided to learn Programming this year as a beginner or maybe you’re already a Programmer and want to expand your skill set. You may be wandering, “What programming languages should I be learning in 2019?” So here’s the answer to your question!!

In 2019, there are a lot more options one could imagine. Reducing this difficulty, I would  present you my top 5 picks from the bunch of Programming Languages in no defined order.

1.JAVASCRIPT

2.PYTHON

3.SWIFT

4.C++

5. Go

The main purpose of selecting these as top 5 is ongoing Industry trends and their ease of using and learning. According to me these languages will dominate in future. The order has no preference.

I’ll not only be briefing the languages but also brief their importance as per Industry standards, here we will be only seeing high level introduction of these languages and not going to see any of them in depth.

JAVASCRIPT

JavaScript is widely used to design interactive frontend applications. For instance, when you click on a button which opens up a popup, the logic is implemented via JavaScript. JavaScript allows you to build interactive websites, and it’s truly an essential web tool technology alongside HTML and CSS, and because most browsers in some way implement JavaScript. It’s crucial for getting into web-development. It is said that in at least 3 years, JavaScript will gain more the status of a VM and lose the status of a language. Instagram, reddit, trivago, ebay and so on all uses javascript.

PYTHON

Python is considered to be one of the most commonly used and also one of the top programming language in demand today and future. It is said to be an easy language for the beginners to learn due to its readability.It is a free, open-source programming language that has extensive support modules YouTube, Instagram, Pinterest, Google are all built in Python.

Talking about those who are looking for a better job, you should definitely learn Python ASAP! A lot of startups are using Python as their primary backend stack and so, this opens up a huge opportunity for full-stack Python developers. 

Career opportunities associated with Python have also grown significantly as its popularity has increased by 40%. Many IT businesses are looking for more candidates with experience and skills in Python programming languages. If you are interested in making your career in back-end development, like Django – Open source framework, is written in python, which makes it easy to learn and grasp. Python supports machine learning and artificial intelligence to a large extent. It has been used for developing almost every kind of applications whether it is web applications or game applications.Python programmers would be the most demandable in the future of IT industries which makes Python future brighter.J

SWIFT

Swift is a fantastic way to write software, whether it’s for phones, desktops, servers, or anything else that runs code. It’s a safe, fast, and interactive programming language that combines the best in modern language thinking  with wisdom from the wider Apple engineering culture and the diverse contributions from its open-source community. 

Swift is the programming language that is used to develop iOS applications, Mac OS Based application and writing servers. iOS-based devices are becoming increasingly popular. Apple iPhone, for instance, has captured a significant market share and is giving a tough competition to Android. Therefore, those who want to serve this community can learn Swift programming while using swift you need to have only iOS hardware, because that is best suited to learn the programming. This is in fact its only drawback, Since Apple is capturing the market nowadays, iOS developer will be having demand in future.  

C++

Founder–Bjarne Stroustrup in 1979

C++ is a statically-typed, free-form, (usually) compiled, multi-paradigm, intermediate-level general-purpose middle-level programming language.”In simple terms, C++ is a sophisticated, efficient and a general-purpose programming language based on C. It was developed by Bjarne Stroustrup in 1979.Many of today’s operating systems, system drivers, browsers and games use C++ as their core language. This makes C++ one of the most popular languages today. Since it is an enhanced/extended version of C programming language, C and C++ are often denoted together as C/C++.

“Why C++ in 2019?”

With the use of C++ in development of modern games, operating systems, browsers, and much more, it is safe to say that C++ is irreplaceable. Since, C++ is a middle level language, you will write code that interacts directly with the internal hardware of the computer. You’ll learn how the computer memory really works, how information is stored in them, how you can retrieve them and so on.It is sure to expand your knowledge on the architecture of the computer. The requirement of jobs comes mostly from game development, rendering engines and the windows applications.

Go or GoLang

Go is an open source programming language that makes it easy to build simple, reliable, and efficient software. While I was searching for languages to be learnt in 2019, I came across this language and I really think that this kind of languages will be in demand in near future. Below I’ve mentioned the reason as to why one should pick this language as its primary language. This language was itself build by Google in the year 2007 by Robert Griesemer, Rob Pike, and Ken Thompson.Eventually it was made open source in the year 2009. There are various online IDEs such as The Go Playground, repl.it etc. which can be used to run Go programs without installing. It also aims to be modern, with support for network and multicore computing. The reason for learning GoLang is that nowadays softwares and applications we are working on requires multi-cores or multi-threads i.e n number of tasks needs to be performed simultaneously which is called concurrency. That’s why Go is built with keeping concurrency in mind. Some features of go which makes it better than its competitors- 1) Go attempts to reduce the amount of typing because throughout its design, developers tried to reduce its complexity. 2) There are no forward declarations and no header files, everything is declared exactly once. 3) There is no type hierarchy: types just are, they don’t have to announce their relationships. 4) Most importantly Go is a platform independent language. Companies that are currently using GoLang are Google, Adobe, BBC, Intel, Netflix, and many more . Concluding to this part I would say that — “Even though Go is very different from other object-oriented languages, it is still the same beast. Go provides you high performance like C/C++, super efficient concurrency handling like Java and fun to code like Python.”

So here we’ve seen my top 5 Programming Languages to learn in 2019!! If you have any queries or suggestion do not forget to comment!

  1. I would like to ask that is it possible to combine two languages for a single program or an application? Its a silly question but i have to ask!!!

    1. combining two languages does not makes sense..
      One thing you can do is, use the algorithm of one language in other syntactically.

  2. Very brief nd selective description, liked the entire info. Just a little more crisp with other possibilities would be a added bonus. Nicely done..!!!!
