Submitted by Radib Kar, on January 18, 2019

Have you ever heard of python? C? C++? Java? All will say "what are you talking about? A non-programmer ever know this!" That's true. IncludeHelp also knows that his readers have already explored a few miles on the road of C, C++, Java, and Python. Maybe still miles to go, but you all know about the languages. How many of you have heard about "Swift". We know many of you will still put up your hands!! How many of you have heard about "GO", about "Typescript"? Very few hands now!! And what about "Rust"?

But these are dominating the tech-industry currently. Today in this article let's quickly revise top few programming languages that you should come across in this year and start playing with. Who knows that you fall in love with?

Here we have listed up and ordered as per our choice the top 10 programming languages for you. Maybe you can come with a different order, but we swear this must be the top list!!

List of top 10 programming languages – you should start learning

Top 10 Programming Languages of the World – 2019

1. Python

This century loves to work with data, loves to train their machine and believes in artificial intelligence. Python is such a genuine & general purpose language that helps you to explore all that you want to do. Python has been announced as the "most popular language of 2018" by TIOBE index. We believe the same too. Python is probably the best weapon of a geek who is working on data science, artificial intelligence, machine learning and software development of course.

Reasons you should learn Python first:

  • Not difficult to learn
  • Multiple programming paradigms
  • Robust standard library
  • A nice platform for developers

2. JavaScript

We have listed JavaScript as 2nd one due to his huge usage and demand in the ongoing tech-world. JavaScript is the basic building block for any frontend application. Now a days NodeJs is widely used for website development frameworks, which is actually JavaScript based.

Reasons you should learn JavaScript:

  • Must one for Full-stack developer
  • Needed to fame any frontend application

3. Swift

Swift is a scripting language which has become so popular in last few years only. It was launched in 2014 and has introduced now a high-paid career path. This is mainly being used in distributed computing as it allows writing scripts that distribute program execution across distributed computing resources, including clusters, clouds, grids, and supercomputers.Swift is being constantly used in economic and biometric modelling.

Reasons you should learn Swift:

  • Has a great future opportunity regarding career
  • A really nice scripting language

4. Java

You all are familiar a bit with Java. Probably, this was the language you learnt in your past school times or maybe junior college days. Java is powerful for its Object Oriented paradigm. Java is most famous for android development, IOT, edge device development. Strong OOP concept felicitates java as top application developing language.

Reasons you should learn JAVA:

  • Object oriented nature
  • Java applets

5. C++

C++ is known to be a core language. It's a highly efficient & reliable language. It has been on demand due to high performance & wide usage. Do you know Microsoft Windows, Apple OS X Google application (most of them), Mozilla Firefox, Adobe systems (major applications) are written in C++?

Reasons you should learn C++:

Do we need to tell? We think no.


6. Rust

How many of you have heard this name before? Just comment below. If you haven't heard don't need to worry at all. You may be wondered to know that though you haven't heard about "Rust" before, Stack OverFlow Developer survey has declared it as the most loved & wanted language in 2018 for developers. Rust is a new system-level ( low-level) programing language launched by Mozilla Foundations 2015. It is syntactically similar to C++ but assures better memory safety while maintaining the same performance. That's why Rust has become developer's first choice & ours sixth.

Reasons you should learn Rust:

  • Better error handling
  • Better support for parallelism & concurrency
  • Excellent resource management

7. Kotlin

Perhaps the number is very few who have heard about Kotlin. But it has been declared as the second most loved one by Stack OverFlow Developer survey. It's fully compatible with Java& can be used everywhere where Java is used. It's mainly known to be android developer's language and Google also started using Kotlin for android development. However, Kotlin was launched by the software developing company JetBrains.

Reasons you should learn Kotlin:

  • It has become heart-throb of Android developers.

8. TypeScript

Probably, this is another one that sounds to be a new one. TypeScript is designed with a determination to spread the JavaScript application developments in large scale. It's being used in Angular and has become the language to develop the JavaScript frameworks. This was launched by Microsoft nearly six years ago but has been in discussion vividly in 2018.

Reasons you should learn TypeScript:

  • TypeScript manages to automatically close the feature gap between versions of JavaScript
  • Easier to debug than JavaScript

9. Matlab

Matlab is a product of MathWorks community& is being widely used due to its amazing toolbox. Matlab is mainly used for numerical computing but now is very popular in the research community. There are lots of in-build functions, features, modeling available in Matlab. It's actually compatible with GNU Octave.

Reasons you should learn Matlab:

  • Easy to code, lets you to focus on algorithm
  • Enriched toolbox
  • Most loving one for research community handling numerical computations
  • MathWorks has an amazing community from where you can get all sorts of help

10. GoLang

The few of you who have heard these before must argue with us that why we have listed "GoLang" (popularly known as "Go") at the last. Of course, you (you are python lover, we bet!) have strong & valid reasons you have, we know. We admit that this new language developed by Google is providing excellent multithreading support and lots of start-up companies have started to depend on "Go". You are right to have argued that "Go" should have found a place in top 5. But still, we believe "Go" hasn't been still in that demand and popularity as others have achieved. Those who heard this for the first time should know this is also a minimal language like Python having the feature of both functional & object-oriented programming.

Reasonsyou should learn Go:

  • Great one for concurrency. (This is the era of multi-core app!)
  • Have lots of developing tools

This is the list of ours. Have you found anything missing or over-rated? Please let us know by commenting. Also, let us know what would be your top ten list. Beginners comment which one you liked most & which one you want to learn first. We will publish tutorials for the language that will have most votes. So do comment!!!
