top 10 programming languages 2019

For a newbie in the field of software development, the hardest choice is to select which programming languages to learn and more importantly “Where to begin?”.

In today’s world writing computer program is one of the most important skills. Everyone needs a website and everyone wants an app, but only those versed in the appropriate language can build them for you. But the question still remains “Which programming languages to choose?”

In this article, we are going to share our list of the top 10 Programming Languages which we believe will help you to choose the language which suits best to you.


1. JavaScript

javaScript

JavaScript is a multi-paradigm language that lets you make interactive web pages. It is nowadays impossible to be a software developer without learning JavaScript. Also, most websites use JavaScript and all major web browsers have a dedicated JavaScript engine to execute it.

These days, many organizations, particularly startups, are using NodeJS which is a JavaScript-based run-time environment. Node.js lets developers use JavaScript for server-side scripting—running scripts server-side to produce dynamic web page content before the page is sent to the user’s web browser. Hence now with JS, you can use a single programming language for server side and client side scripts.
