Day 1 of Techmas: Most sought after programming languages of 2019
Maintaining an up-to-date skillset is more important in software development than in almost any other industry and having a wide skillset than spans across multiple programming languages is an invaluable asset in today’s job market.
Here are a couple of programming languages we saw trending over the past year.
According to the Stack Overflow survey, React.js is the most loved framework, followed by Vue.js.
This language is often applied in scientific computing, machine learning and data mining settings as it is extremely versatile and flexible. At present, the adoption of AI or machine learning has tremendously increased amongst businesses as well as the need for Python developers.
Kotlin is an open-source language is based on Java Virtual Machine (JVM) and has become increasingly popular due to the fact that it is much less code for you to type, test, and maintain. It is Google’s preferred language for Android app developers according to TechCrunch.com.
Prone to Android O, you don’t need to invest a ton of energy to learn Kotlin. By putting a couple of hours in perusing the language reference, you can have the hold on the language.
Many frameworks for iOS and Mac development still rely on Objective-C, and it remains a worthy inclusion in anyone’s skillset who is interested in native development on Apple devices. It is based on C and can strongly support studies in other C-based languages.
