Originally published by Javin Paul on July 9th 2019 @javinpaulJavin Paul I am Java programmer, blogger on http://javarevisited.blogspot.com and http://java67.com A developer’s list of the programming languages you probably want to start learning in 2019/2020 Photo by Annie Spratt on Unsplash A couple of months ago, I was reading an interesting article on HackerNews, which argued that why you should learn numerous programming languages even if you won’t immediately use them, and I have to say that I agreed. Since each programming language is good for something specific but not so great for others, it makes sense for Programmers and senior developers to know more than one language so that you can choose the right tool for the job. But which programming languages should you learn? As there are many programming language ranging from big three like Java, JavaScript, and Python to lesser-known like Julia, Rust or R. The big questions is which languages will give you the biggest bang for your buck? Even though Java is my favorite language, and I know a bit of C and C , I am striving to expand beyond this year. I am particularly interested in Python and JavaScript, but you might be interested in something else. This list of the top 10 programming languages — compiled with help from Stack Overflow’s annual developer survey as well as my own experience — should help give you some ideas. Note: Even though it can be tempting, don’t try to learn too many programming langauge at once; choose one first, master it, and then move on to next one. Java Even though I have been using Java for years, there are still many things I have to learn. My goal for 2019 is to focus on recent Java changes on JDK 9, 10, 11, and 12.

Javascript Whether you believe it or not, JavaScript is the number one language of the web. The rise of frameworks like jQuery, Angular, and React JS has made JavaScript even more popular. Since you just cannot stay away from the web, it’s better to learn JavaScript sooner than later. It’s also the number one language for client-side validation, which really does make it work learning JavaScript. Convinced? Then this JavaScript Masterclass is a good place to start. For cheaper alternatives, check out this list of free JavaScript courses. Python Python has now toppled Java to become the most taught programming language in universities and academia. It’s a very powerful language and great to generate scripts. You will find a python module for everything you can think of. For example, I was looking for a command to listen to UDP traffic in Linux but couldn’t find anything. So, I wrote a Python script in 10 minutes to do the same.  » Read More
