Java was for years the most-requested programming language for employers. Although this has recently been outpaced by SQL, it is still very popular. Java is the standard for many enterprise software, is used by more than 9 million developers and is used to control more than 7 billion (!) devices worldwide. Its popularity owes the programming language mainly to the simplicity and readability of the code, which makes it a good starting point for novice programmers. Also, one of the basics of Java is the compatibility that ensures that older applications continue to work.
You'll find SQL everywhere. Database technologies like MySQL, PostgreSQL and Microsoft SQL Keep banks, universities, hospitals, small and large companies running. It is not exaggerated to say that every computer and person with access to technology somehow comes into contact with SQL. For example, iOS and Android devices have access to SQLite, a SQL database, and numerous mobile applications that use SQL directly.
C is an object-oriented programming language based on C. Since the language in the years 80 was developed it has been used to develop Adobe and Microsoft applications, MongoDB databases and large portions of Mac OS/X operating system. It is considered by many to be the best programming language to learn for applications where performance is of great importance, such as games or audio/videobewerking.
Until 2014, objective C was the programming language used by the Apple operating system. It plays a role in Apple's OS X, iOS and its Apis. For a long time it was the language in which you had to write iPhone applications as a programmer, until Apple came up with its own programming language a few years ago: Swift. Swift seems to be very much like C++ and its predecessor objective C, but it is easier for most programmers to learn.
PHP was in fact never meant as a programming language. The Danish-Canadian programmer Rasmus Lerdorf developed PHP in 1994 as a series of tools that enabled him to manage his personal website (Personal homepage). Today we changed the meaning of the abbreviation to Hyper test Pre-Processor and used the language on servers to dynamically generate HTML websites. PHP is easy to learn, but in addition possesses much advanced functionality that is of great value for experienced programmers.
Python is a server-side programming language for websites and mobile applications. It is a relatively easy language to learn, thanks to the readability and brevity of the code. In Python, it is often possible to express a concept in less rules than in many other languages. Python is used in applications such as Insta gram and Pinterest in the form of the Web-framework Django. Google, Yahoo! and NASA all make use of Python.
Ruby is – like Python – a programming language that is very user-friendly for novice programmers. At the same time, the object-oriented language is very dynamic and thus popular for developing websites and mobile apps. It is the basis of the Ruby on Rails framework used by Groupon, Shopify, Scribd and GitHub.
