With the new era of technology, the programming sector has become one of the most important sectors of this 2018. With so much demand and types of technology, each specialist in the area must be well prepared for all kinds of situations. (Rewrite)

What are the programming languages available in today’s market?

Programming languages have been evolving since Fortran – the first-ever high-level programming language – and there are now close to 250+ programming languages. Moreover, there are new programming languages and frameworks popping up every day. Today we’ll show you a list of the best and more useful languages for developers according to the data of Tiobe (a software quality company) that for several years has generated an index of the most popular programming language and updates it once a month.

These ratings are based on the number of skilled engineers around the world, courses and third-party vendors. Popular search engines such as Google, Bing, Yahoo!, and resourced like Wikipedia, Amazon, YouTube, and Baidu are also used to calculate the ratings.

With any of these languages, you can create programs of all kinds and quality.

So what does it mean?

The previous graph displays the 10 most used languages in March 2018, comparing them with  March 2017.

Here you can see the increase that Ruby had to go from number 12 to number 9. Ruby was created several years ago and barely in 2006 it began to come to light, It was then when the Ruby on Rails framework was launched, facilitating this framework the creation of web applications. We can also see that Java remains in first place for several years, with a slight decline of 1.44%. (Rewrite)

Java, the king of the programming languages

From the table above we can see that Java is the most popular language, and it has been since its creation, which means that many of the largest companies in the world use Java to create applications and web systems.

Advantages that have made it the most popular

  • Platform-independent language – any program created through Java can work correctly on computers of all types and with different operating systems
  • Language adaptable to all types of mobile devices
  • Realization of dynamic web pages

What can we see from this graph?

Python is making significant progress in the last 15 years. One of the “easier” languages to learn, it has grown in popularity as it’s widely used in most of the current technology trends of today, such as Big Data, Cyber Security, Machine Learning and many robotics programs that adapt well to this language.

JavaScript has improved remarkably thanks to the ubiquity of web browsers, above all, it remains firm before new languages. (further, develop)

C positions itself as one of the preferred and oldest languages, thanks to its almost universal portability to adopted brands such as Tech (?), Microsoft, Apple, Linux, among others.

It also has a large number of advantages:

  • It is highly transportable
  • A core of a simple language, with important added functionalities, such as mathematical functions and file management, provided by libraries.
  • Access to low-level memory through the use of pointers.
  • A reduced set of keywords.
  • Interruptions to the processor with connections.

These are the best programming languages and although we show you the most popular it is important that a programmer or a work team sees the one that best suits their purpose and way of working, it does not matter that the language is not mentioned within the Top 10, while serving your goal is the ideal for you.
