Today, we will take a look on some new and trending programming languages to learn in 2017.
Top Programming Languages to learn
TIOBE programming community index is a measure of popularity of programming languages. TIOBE stands for “The Importance Of Being Earnest” which is taken from the name of a comedy play written by Oscar Wilde at the end of the nineteenth century.
Introduction – Ruby is a dynamic, reflective, object-oriented, general-purpose programming language. It was designed and developed in the mid-1990s by Yukihiro “Matz” Matsumoto in Japan.
Rudy has also been around for a while and seems to only rise in popularity. Many similar languages has been created but nothing if shifting the position Ruby holds. 2017 will not be any different so now is the time to start learning the language and not be left behind. Ruby is great for start-up and is often used by solo programmers for easy computer programming.
Introduction – Rust is a general-purpose, multi-paradigm, compiled programming language sponsored by Mozilla Research. It is designed to be a “safe, concurrent, and practical language”, supporting functional and imperative-procedural paradigms.
Mozilla launched this programming language in 2014 and the number of users has increased significantly in 2016. It is believed that it will do just as exponentially in 2017 as well. If you are planning to learn programming for the first time, this is definitely one of the languages to learn. Developed as an upgraded version of C and C++ with similar tasks as C. One of the great benefits of Rust is that it is almost impossible to make a mistake and run an error code. This gives great security to the every programmer.
Introduction – Go is a free and open source programming language created by Google in 2007. It is a compiled, statically typed language based on Algol and C, with garbage collection, limited structural typing, memory safety features and other added features added.
Go is a Google owned programming language and it has been skyrocketing since 2016. We know most things created by Google are going to be around for a while and Go is no different. We predict that everyone will be making more use of Go in 2017 so do not get left behind. Many start-ups have made it their language of choice.
Introduction – Perl is a family of high-level, general-purpose, interpreted, dynamic programming languages.
Perl is used to write most kinds of programs and runs very fast. One can find some android sample programs and better them with Perl. It can even be described as fun. Who does not like to combine work and fun? Even though Python is a strong rival to Perl, we believe Perl is a stronger competitor. It really depends who you talk to, some in the Python corner and others on Perl’s side. No matter what, this language is not going anywhere in 2017.
So you do not know about Hack. This programming language is brought by Facebook. How can you not know about it as a future programmer? Basically, it is holding up a feature on one of the most popular and successful websites. See why you need to learn this language? Just like Google, Facebook is not going anywhere. If you want to be part of the programming future, learn this language.
Since, we have already talked about coding languages from some major IT companies like Google, Facebook, and Mozilla, Swift Programming Language from Apple also deserves a mention.
Swift is a new programming language for iOS, MacOS, WatchOS, and tvOS apps that builds on the best of C and Objective C, without the constraints of C compatibility. Swift adopts safe programming patterns and adds modern features to make programming easier, flexible, and fun.
So now you have a better understanding of the languages of the future. Equip yourself with the knowledge of these to set you apart from the rest. If you are serious about making your career as a programmer, you have to keep up with the trends. These languages will allow you to be a better programmer. Some courses include these languages in the material but if yours didn’t, do some research and train yourself.
