5 Programming languages you must learn in 2021

2020 was a pretty unique and strange year for us, but the good news is that it is finally over. But the thing that made 2020 a bit easy for us was technology isn’t it from work from home to online classes to online groceries and much more.

So if your new year resolution includes learning programming so here are the 5 programming languages from which you can start .

1. PYTHON

Python is an interpreted, high-level, and general-purpose programming language. Python was created in the late 1980s, and first released in 1991, by Guido van Rossum.

The reason why Python is added to the list is because it a easy to learn language with a simpler and easy to read syntax which makes coding in python simpler and more fun than other languages. And if you are interested and want to learn Data Science or Machine Learning then Python is the language you would need to start with. And Python is such a versatile language that if you are keen on Web or GUI development you can use python for it.

Not only beginners but experienced developers also voted for Python as the most wanted language of 2020 in the Stack-Overflow Developers survey. So in 2021 Python must be the language that you learn.

2. JAVASCRIPT

JavaScript often abbreviated as JS, is a programming language that conforms to the ECMAScript specification. Brendan Eich initially, plus other key contributors developed JavaScript and JS first appeared on December 4, 1995.

JavaScript is a language whose syntax is similar to Java and used both on the client-side and server-side that allows you to make web pages interactive. It is basically due to javascript that makes the webpages interactive and engages the users. So if you are interested in web development then JavaScript is your language. Learning JavaScript will also open the doors to React and Angular frameworks with which you can make awesome websites and also work as a freelancer.

And in the Stack Overflow developer survey, JavaScript was the second most wanted language by the developers, which is a hint that in 2021 JavaScript will be the language that will shine even more.

3. JAVA

Java is a class-based, object-oriented programming language that is designed to have as few implementation dependencies as possible. Java was originally developed by James Gosling at Sun Microsystems and released in 1995.

Java over the years is the used language by developers, Java is the first language for major developers because it is an object-oriented programming language, and with Java, you can learn and master Data Structures and Algorithms. So if you are a beginner and thinking of becoming a Software engineer then with Java you can excel in your job interviews.

And if you are interested in Mobile or Web development, with Java you can do that too. It’s a complete language with which you can start your programming journey.

4. C & C++

C++ is basically superset to C which was developed by Bjarne Stroustrup, as an extension to the C language. It is an object-oriented programming language that gives a clear structure to programs. It can be found in today’s operating systems, Graphical User Interfaces, and embedded systems.

C++ is one of the world’s most popular programming language as it is close to C# and Java, it makes it easy for programmers to switch from one language to another. C++ is also is a beginner-friendly language that is easy and fun to learn. With C++ you can start understanding the concepts of Oops, Data Structures, and Algorithms.

And if you are interested in competitive programming then C++ is your language and with C++ you can start and excel in your Competitive programming journey.

5. DART

Dart is a programming language that is developed by Google. It was first released on October 10, 2011. And with Dart, you can build mobile, desktop, server, and web applications.

Dart is the most recent and modern programming language in this list thus Dart is heavily influenced by all the other old languages it gives us a perfect blend and balance of C, Java, C#, JavaScript, and others. Thus Dart fills the loopholes that the earlier languages had as it is built with all the past resources and learning that the developers had.

Google has also introduced Flutter for native mobile app development on both Android and iOS. Flutter is a mobile app SDK, complete with framework, widgets, and tools, that gives developers a way to build and deploy mobile apps, written in Dart. If Mobile app development is a resolution for you in 2021 then Dart is the perfect language to start with.

So what’s stopping you from learning programming in 2021

So what’s stopping you from learning programming in 2021

Just discover your interest, then select a language according to it and start walking in this beautiful path of programming and I promise you that you will never regret this decision of learning programming in the future.
