If you were born before 1980, you might remember a time when businesses could get by without reliance on computers.
My‚ how the times have changed.
What would we do without the ability to store information on servers, communicate with one another across the world, and build applications to make our lives easier? In this new world order, companies are fully aware that talented developers and efficient business practices go hand-in-hand.
So if you’re looking to develop developer skills, where should you turn?
Part of the answer to that question depends on what space you’d like to enter. Front end development, back-end development, mobile app dev, game dev? The list goes on and on. A good place to start is by reviewing some of the most popular programming languages out there and checking out some introductory (extremely affordable!) online courses.
Python is one of the most popular coding languages in the world. It’s widely applicable and used across an array of web applications. Python is used for YouTube, Pinterest, Netflix, Spotify, and more. It’s a backend language and is often celebrated for its relative ease of use.
Many startups are looking for Python developers. If you’re seeking a better paying career, Indeed.com lists Python as one of the most in-demand programming languages in the world.
Swift is a language used widely in the development of iOS and macOS applications. If you are interested in Apple products and mobile app development, Swift is a great option. The learning curve ranges from easy to moderate. Even though its usage is limited to iOS applications, Apple isn’t going anywhere anytime soon! Swift app development is notably profitable. According to Indeed, it ranks as the ninth most in demand coding language.
C# (pronounced C sharp) is a backend programming language developed by Microsoft, but widely used on the iOS/Android and Linux platforms. If you are interested in video game development (2D and 3D) this is a language for you. It is similar to other C based languages (like C++) so if you are familiar with or already working in the C language family, it will be easier for you to pick it up. C# is the fifth most demanding language.
Conclusion: Popular Programming Languages
In the end, only you can decide which language(s) you are most interested in learning, based on a combination of your interests and the marketplace. No matter which you choose, learning one or more of the languages above can put you in a great position for many years to come.
