Top Programming Languages 2017 Edition : Programming language as its name suggests is a language that is used by programmers to develop various programs and applications that are used by us in our daily life. Programming languages are used to provide instructions to the machine which in turn controls the behaviour of the machine. Now a days almost all the people who are using computers want to write a code for it so that the functions of the computer can be controlled. There are many available languages that can help one in fulfilling its dream. But the main question arise that which language?? Which is the best programming language. But if you ask me I’ll say “it depends”. Yeah it depends on the type of the work that you are doing. If you are going to make a program for simple things like for calculating etc. then C is enough. But if you want to make a high end software then you can use Java or C++. So it depends on the purpose. After having a close look at stats of various programming language I came up with some of the Top programming languages 2017 edition list.
Top Programming Languages 2017
JAVA is one of the best programming language to learn. It was mainly developed as a language which could be used in distributed system. JAVA is simpler then C++ language if completely understood and unlike C++ it is completely object oriented programming language. It is used to create complete complex applications which can of course be distributed to any platform that has JVM installed. The reason that it can be distributed anywhere is that its code is saved in byte form which is easily understood by computers and JVM then interprets that code.
C++ is a general purpose programming language. It is having both generic and object oriented features in it. It was designed basically to improve the performance, efficiency and flexibility of the programming as languages previous were not that flexible and fast. C++ is basically used for developing resource-constrained applications, it is also helpful in developing desktop applications and those application which require high performance.
Ruby is a powerful commercial language that can be learned very easily. It is purely object oriented language because it treats everything as an object. It is very simple language and is open source. It is having a huge user community and large number of tutorials for learning. It is used for many web-fronted applications.
PHP is an HTML-embedded Web scripting language. This means that the PHP code can be embedded into any HTML of a web page. It is usually pre-processed by PHP interpreter. As the PHP code is translated into HTML users can’t see it. Its main goal is to allow Web developers to write dynamically generated pages in an easy way.
C is a general purpose programming language which supports structural programming. C was originally developed for writing UNIX programs. C provided a better way to write typical machine instructions and was therefore used in applications that were previously coded using assembly language. Now it has become one of the most used programming language and has found is way in various application software.
It is a highly used general purpose high level programming language. It is designed such that it is very easy to read and understand. It is considered as scripting language and is used for creating web applications. It is supported by a number of imaging programs for creating plug-ins.
C# Pronounced as ‘C sharp’ was developed by Microsoft. It is a derivative of C language and is having same basic operators like C++. But there are some differences in both of them. C# is designed mainly for Microsoft.Net framework and will run only on that platform which support .Net
Cascading Style Sheet popularly known as CSS is used to format the layout of the Web Pages. It describes how the HTML elements are to be displayed on screen, paper or other media. CSS saves a lot of work as one can control layout of multiple pages at once and is better than HTML.
#10 Visual Basic
It is a programming language that was developed by Microsoft. It combines the BASIC functions with the visual controls. It provides its users a drag and drop feature while creating a program. It is human readable, having IntelliSense and Code snippets. The main problem is that the programs written in this language can be run only on platforms that support .Net framework.
So guys these were some of the top programming languages 2017 edition. But again I am saying that no programming language is good or bad it all depends on one’s need that which language to use. If you are having any doubts or want to ask more about the programming languages then do mention it in comments. Thanks for reading the post. Do share it with your friends.
