Top 5 Programming Languages To Learn In 2020

    Hey friend currently, there are various programming languages in the market right now. But which language is suitable in 2020 to land you to a high salary job? Are you confused?

    Don’t worry, I have explained all the top 5 programming languages in an easy way, that you can learn in the year 2020 to grab your dream job.

    1. Python

    Python is the first choice of anyone who wants to learn programming from the beginning because it is the well-formatted and an easy to write and programming language currently in the market. One interesting about this language is that you can write heavy web applications with less code as compared to other programming languages.

    “Sounds great, right?”

    Now, Its time to tell you something cool about this programming language. Python is an interpreted, high-level, general-purpose programming language. It was first released in 1991. For the unknows, Python uses a very clear programming syntax with the proper use of whitespaces.

    It is also an OOP(Object Oriented Programming) language, which enables the programmers to write effective and clear code for large scale enterprises.

    “I’m sure Java lovers are going to love Python too”

    Python is relatively easy for the programmers as well as for beginners because most of the syntax is the same just like in other programming languages and is used in an easy way.

    “You’ll be amazed to know that the social networking site Reddit is entirely written in Python”

    Python is known to be an easily readable language. The formatting of this language is visually uncluttered, and it often uses English keywords while other languages use punctuation and curly braces. Semicolons after the statements are also optional.

    “One syntax error ignored, Hurray!”

    Have you ever imagined that How Python identifies and separates the coding blocks if it doesn’t use curly braces? The simple answer to this question is that Python uses whitespace indentation to separate and identify various coding blocks. The increase and decrease of the indentation tell the starting and end of the blocks.

    “This shows the intelligence of this programming language. That’s why it is majorly used in ML and AI”

    Uses of Python Programming Language:

    According to Wikipedia, “Since 2003, Python has consistently ranked in the top ten most popular programming languages in the TIOBE Programming Community Index where, as of December 2018, it is the third most popular language (behind Java, and C). It was selected as the Programming Language of the Year in 2007, 2010, and 2018.”

    Python is hugely used in Data Science, Robotics, web applications, scientific computing, Natural Language Processing, Information, and cybersecurity, etc.

    Jobs and Salary of Python Developers:

    You can easily get a job as a full stack developer, data scientist, back end developer, cybersecurity professionals in organizations like Google, Nasa, Wikipedia, Amazon, Facebook, CERN, etc.

    The average salary of the python programmers is between $110,021-$121,443 per annum in the US.

    2. Java

    I am damn sure that you have heard this name before and believe me it is one of my favorite programming languages before the release of Python. I am also a big Java fan.

    “Java is one of the highly demanded languages in various tech industries and organizations for many years since its release in the year 1995”

    It is a general-purpose programming language that is object-oriented, class-based, and designed to have as few implementation dependencies as possible. Its ‘write once, run anywhere’ feature makes it hugely famous among the developers.

    According to Github, Java was one of the most popular programming languages in 2019 for its use in particularly for client-server web applications, with a whopping support base of 9 million developers.

    “Java support community is huge as you can see from the above facts and numbers”

    For a C/C++ developer, it will take a couple of weeks to learn Java as most of the syntax is similar to that in C and C++. But for a beginner, it can be a burden if the beginning concepts are not cleared properly.

    “So beginners, be cautious!”

    Uses of Java Programming Language:

    For the unknowns, I would like to tell you that Java is the key programming language used in Android OS which you use in your smartphones. Android SDK uses Java extensively and Java serves as the base for many Android applications.

    In my list, JavaScript holds the third spot. But you can’t ignore its importance. It is much widely required and used in large organizations for creating interactive web applications and web pages. JavaScript is a high-level, multi-paradigm, just-in-time compiled programming language that conforms to the ECMAScript specification.

    “Apart from HTML and CSS, JavaScript is one of the core technologies of the World Wide Web”

    It enables interactive web pages and is also an essential part of web applications. The majority of websites on the internet use JavaScript extensively, and major web browsers also have a dedicated JavaScript engine to execute its syntax and working efficiently.

    This is the language that is continuously evolving. This can be proved by a fact that earlier it was only used on the client-side interface but now it can also be used in server-side apps.

    “In simple words, JavaScript is the language of web followed by HTML and CSS”
