Top 4 Programming Languages to Learn In 2019


hi everyone welcome back to my channel in this video I will be talking about the top 4 programming languages to learn in 2019 and my list is based on three factors the popularity of the language the tendency for it to become really valuable and popular in the future and in 2019 in particular and the salary numbers for the particular programming language so if you are interested please stay tuned number four good old Java Java was created over 20 years ago in 1991 by James Gosling and fun facts he’s actually now working at Amazon as a distinguished software engineer Java is a general-purpose programming language and of course all of you have heard of Java a ton of big and small companies still run their software on Java and still continue to develop in their software using Java the key of Java’s popularity is right once and run anywhere Java also is the primary language still for Android applications so if you want to go mobile you can still use Java for that why I’m saying still is because Kotlin actually language developed by the company JetBrains has been becoming really popular so now a lot of platforms actually do move to Kotlin and that’s part of the reason why I put Java on place number four however despite the fact still a lot of companies do use Java to name a few it’s slack Buber lyft Airbnb where I work at and Java is still really popular Stack Overflow 2018 survey shows that it’s being used by 45.3% people however if we look at the interest for Java over time it has definitely declined and I think it’s due to its diversity due to the fact that it’s a little more complicated and definitely has downside so that’s why Java earns number four in this list number three is go or go Lang go was released in 2012 by engineers working at Google and they literally made a list of things that they didn’t like about languages they’ve worked with before and decided to develop their own language to address these problems and so it was literally built by engineers for engineers and to name up you besides Google companies like Adobe Dell Facebook use go in their software I would go as number three because one it has been increasing a ton in popularity according to the Stack Overflow 2018 survey go actually also boasts to be the top three most wanted language which again proves the point that it isn’t demand it is going to be a hot language it already was in 2018 and will be ongoing 2019 and further besides that go is also a programming language in the top five of the most paid for programming languages if you jump on it early on you will be a highly seeks after a highly specialized developer in go and I think that is extremely extremely valuable so that’s why I go earns number three in my list and I think this is a great great time to start learning go number two is Python and of course what kind of programming language list goes without Python nowadays since 1991 when Python was developed by a Dutch developer judo van rossum Python has been gained in extreme attention and popularity and fun facts judo now works at Dropbox mostly writing Python Python can accommodate any kind of needs really especially now with the hot technologies like machine learning data analyst artificial intelligence all of these technologies can be supported and written in Python so python has a ton of applications and even if you are a web developer Python has really great frameworks like Django that you can use for web development so it’s still actually a great time to jump into Python especially with the amount of automation that’s been on people’s mind right now and in all kinds of businesses whether it’s a small business or a large business Python is extremely great for automating pretty much anything you can imagine there is plenty of jobs out there for people who are thinking of migrating to Python or for companies that already use Python and to name a few we at Airbnb use Python draw box uses Python Google uses Python Coursera uses Python just to name a few it also is used by big players like NASA nASA uses Python to write their software applications besides that Python is actually also extremely easy to learn Python is one of the easiest languages and even if you google Python on Amazon you can see that a ton of books are actually about Python because it’s a very easy to get started with language it’s got a great community and great documentation so that’s why Python earns number two in my list for top languages to learn in 2019 and number one on the list of programming languages to learn in 2019 is JavaScript I know that javascript is a language that a lot of people have a love-hate relationship with however javascript is so evolving and it develops so quickly they always release new versions that actually JavaScript today is very different from JavaScript that you might have used learned seen a couple of years ago it’s much better now it has much better paradigms and if you are looking to become a web developer nowadays you pretty much cannot do without job actually one thing that a co-founder of Stack Overflow Jeff Atwood once said is that any application that can be written in JavaScript will eventually be written in JavaScript JavaScript also has a ton of applications you can develop desktop apps we can develop mobile apps with frameworks such as react you can develop back-end services you can do pretty much anything and if you want to develop any kind of browser plug-ins it of course will use JavaScript and as I said mobile application is one good example of that with react native you can write your application in JavaScript and it will run across all the mobile platforms such as iOS Android JavaScript is also the most popular programming language used by people according to the 2018 Stack Overflow survey with 69.8% of people using javascript and to name a few companies that use javascript that would be reddit eBay Airbnb where I work Instagram and that’s just a few so if you are looking to learn a programming language today for 2019 if you learn JavaScript you will not go wrong that is it from you guys that was the top 4 programming languages to learn in 2019 based on the three factories such as market salary and tendency to become really popular and I hope you enjoyed this video in the comment section please let me know what has been your most favorite programming language to develop in and why I would love to see what you guys all think if you guys liked this video please don’t forget to give it a like and subscribe and put the notification button on to know when the new content is coming I will make a few separate videos for programming languages to learn in 2019 based on other factors and I hope you have a wonderful rest of the day bye for now [Music]
