10 Best Programming Languages to Learn in 2019 (for Job & Future)

The most important skill to learn in today’s world is to know how to write a computer program. Today, computers have entered in almost every industry. Be it the autopilot in an aircraft or digital speedometer in your bike, computers in various forms surround us. Computers are extremely useful for an organization to scale up well. Gone are the days of pen and paper. Today, in order to store and access your information, you absolutely need computers.

The programming and developer communities are emerging at a rate faster than ever before. Various new programming languages are coming up that are suited for different categories of developers (beginners, intermediate, and experts) as well as for different use cases (web application, mobile applications, game development, distributed system, etc). Let us take a look at best Programming Languages to learn in 2019 for a job and for future prospects:

Just learn JavaScript. It's what all the tech companies want. You can code the frontend AND backend (contrary to what this article says).

If you are looking to be a software dev and don't know anything yet, then learn this:
- JavaScript (don't bother with TypeScript for now)
- React
- React Hooks + useReducer
- Express

All of this runs on Node.

Is rust here to conquer C and C++? Just finished uni with an embedded system degree so C/C++ is my go to language. I have just started reading about rust and that it has all the pros of C/C++ but more secure considering the memory allocation. I have been thinking about learning it but would like your input.

So back to my question, will Rust grow substantionally and will it make C/C++ go obsolete? (Of course it won't make the two languages disappear but you get what i mean, or else tell me)

And if you would rate Rust with "Difficulty level" and "Job opportunity" what would it get?

I don't think the author is an idiot, but misinformed. You should not rank a language high if it is a closed 1-vendor-only language like C#, Swift, or VB. All major successful languages have always been vendor independent.

If everything is so easy to learn, why don't we have a flood of people who can actually pass a test of the provided language? There are two components of a language. First is the semantics (how the language expresses basic things like declarations, calls, loops, etc) and second the framework, which is the ecosystem of libraries around the language. The first you learn in a week, the second in years. Most of the people say C++ is hard because they have a hard time learning the semantics, they barely touch the poor framework (STL or stdio for example) or third party libraries like QT.

R and Matlab are hard, very hard. It is easy to "churn the numbers" and get some meaningless results, enforced by nano-scale p-values. Making sense of data is the hard part. How do you know when to apply Bonferonni or FDR correction for multiple determinations?

Python is a hyped language. Slow, inconsistent and hard to organize in the large environments. Most of the heavy lifting has to be done in C++ using ctype interface.
And maybe Python version 4 will have a print{"hello world"} instead. Being adopted by a company is an evidence that CTO is a newbie or a wannabe technologist.

Julia is going to replace Python and MATLAB soon. A high level language which is much faster than both. It has a close speed to C code because it is compiled. It also allows parallelism and multi threading (SIMD). You can also compile it statically and further improve speed.

Antonello

MATLAB quite soon (no user-case left where MATLAB is still preferable, except management of old code/old knowledge), Python it will take longer (still some domains where Julia is not yet there). But I doubt the guy who wrote this article even know about it hahaha...

Ruby is very much in high demand, especially for startups. Any OOP language is in high demand.
C# is high demand also, major big companies like Accenture, Infosys, Netflix, Capital One and on and one they are hiring C# developers all the time. Learn C# .NET .NET Core.

Java is high demand yes for big corporate, but so are the other OOP languages. You fail to mention that Java is also a dinosaur language that is boring and those big corp are narrow minded.

Also you fail to mention the back-end story to the language wars.
Java and Oracle
C# and Microsoft

these two go head to head against one another, so you want to work for a company like Microsoft? learn C# because that's who owns it.

By the way, Microsoft bought out github last year.

Java is owned by Oracle

My advice for any starter is it does not matter which language you pick, unless you want to work for NASA and build rockets (then learn LISP or SCHEME). Unless so, just pick any language you will have jobs.

Only language you will have to learn without a doubt is Javascript. Even better, you can learn MEAN or MERN stack (MEAN= mongodb, express, angular, node) These are full stack written in pure javascript, now you don't have to cross language while you develop. If you want to be a step ahead of the game, learn Javascript and the full stack MEAN or MERN(mongodb, express,react,node).

"Golang, popularly known as Go, is the new programming language built by Google.". The name of the language is Go, not Golang. Golang is only meant to be used for searching/tagging purposes (making articles easier to find for example) but it is NOT the name of the language. Not anymore than Python is Pythonlang or C Clang...

Secondly, Go 1st appeared in 2009, whereas Swift in 2014... how come Go is "the new language" ?
