  • Which is the best Programming Language that is commonly used?


    Learn about the most commonly used and best programming languages at present from the experts of Techulator in the best way.

    I would like to know from experts that which is the best Software language that is commonly used at the moment. Once C language was very well known for various Software programming and topped most commonly used languages in the list, but time has changed everything. Though some of them using C language still for their business. I would like to know the latest and the best Software Language at the moment that are commonly used.

  • PHP, Java, Objective C, SQL, Android (Java), Ruby, JavaScript, C#, C++, Python, C, ASP.NET. These are the most demanding programming languages today. Among all Java script has become more popular in recent years. Since C is created first all the beginners will and should learn it. The rankings of these languages change very frequently from time to time. What I think is one should start learning from basics. For example if you want to learn SQL, you should have touch in PHP or ASP and if you try to learn PHP you should know java script and HTML. Since every language is interconnected, every language has its own importance.
    Today most of the students are choosing a language that can provide more job opportunities. That is completely a wrong expectation, because preference of a language may change with respect to time so, its better to choose a programming language which you are interested in.

  • Being a non IT student, I know that only C language is the best and as per advice of my teacher all the languages are best in their respective usage. One should learn only one language at once thoroughly to have better results in future. Today many other languages have created their own values but C language has its own prominence and will remain forever. It is still best and will remain better for every beginner.

  • I think the most commonly used programming language today is C++. Although there are many newer languages like C# and Java, C++ remains a most commonly used language in many programs. C++ provides the programmer the capability to access the hardware better than any other languages.
    Some of the most popular software applications are developed using C++. Some of them include Adobe Photoshop (which is the first software that comes to our mind when it comes to photo editing), Winamp (which is a widely used audio/video player, Autodesk Maya - developed using C++ and Python (which is a 3d modelling and animation application), Nero Burning ROM (which is the most popular disk burner software), and many more. The list will go on.
    C++ is even powerful for developing operating systems. So, I think because of its capabilities it is the most used programming language.
    The other languages include C# which is mostly used in developing applications for Windows. And if you're speaking about Android applications, then Java is the option.

  • There is no doubt that C language is the basic language of all the programming languages. If we say it the mother language then there will not be any doubt. But as we all also know that technology is also getting new innovation every year so these programming languages are also spreading.

    Mostly programming languages which are used for the software designing are-
    • C
    • C++
    • Java
    • C#
    • PHP
    • HTML
    • Java Script
    • Dotnet
    • SQL
    • Oracle

    With these languages there are several versions are also available in the market. So to coming in the software field you have to be update with the most of the programming language. To enter in this industry if you should have good command in any one programming language that can be C then you can get good job. C language is also known as higher programming language.

  • The popularity of programming languages have been changing over a period of time depending on the needs of the software developers and evolving of the new software from time to time. However, a programmer having the knowledge of quite a good number of popular programming languages has always been a successful programmer. The programming languages which were in great demand a number of years ago do not have the same demand now. The programmer will be a successful programme if he or she knew which the right programming language is at the right time. He or she then tries to gain all the skills of that language to put it to the most profitable use. Here is the list of some of the most popular of the programming languages these days according to the popularity of their use for various purposes:

    Java
    Java is an object-oriented programming language which has become very popular these days. James Gosling and his colleagues of the Sun Microsystems developed this programming language in the late 1990s which has become the most important language to any developer who thinks of developing any software other than .NET. This language developed on the basic model and is greatly derived from C and C++.

    C
    Dennis Ritchie developed this language while working with Bell Telephone Labs. The C programming language became the most demanded general purpose language. This serves as a prelude to the C++ and other programming languages. The language works on the Unix operating system and it soon gained the importance of greatly used programming languages of all times. It is very essential to lean this language for any programmer which makes the learning of Java or C# easy for him or her since there is common syntax for all the three. The syntax of C is also very useful for learning scripting languages.

    C#
    C# is also a general purpose programme language. Microsoft further developed this language from C and C++ to use it as part of Microsoft's development of .NET. As such the language became a must for any programmer working on the .NET framework.

    C++
    It was Bjarne Stroustrup who started enhancement of C programming language which gave birth in 1979 to a new general purpose language C++. This programming language has both the low level and high level features of the programming languages. This language is widely used development of systems software, application software, server and client applications and also in software involving entertainment industry like development of video games. This language also had a great impact on other programming languages like Java and C#>

    Objective-C
    Brad Cox and Tom Love of the Stepstone company created this language in the early 1980s. This became one of the most object-oriented language. Apple has made a wide use of this programming language in its applications especially in the development of its operating system iOS, Mac OS X and its Cocoa API.

    Besides the above 5 topmost programming languages of the recent times, we have others like PHP, the languages that especially suits web development as its feature that easily embeds it into HTML pages. Then there Visual Basic, Python, Perl and JavaScript which are no less important languages for software programme developers of modern times.

  • At present many languages came into online world. It works well for the development of the websites. Some of the best programming languages at present are C, C++, HTML, XML, and C #, Java, Jscript, PHP, Dotnet, Oracle, SQL, ASP.NET and Python.
    C:
    C is an initial programming language developed by Dennis Ritchie between 1969 and 1973 at AT&T Bell labs. It is one of the most widely used programming languages of all time. There are very few computer architectures for which a C compiler does not exist. It is a procedural language designed to be compiled using a relatively straightforward compiler. It provides low level access memory, which constructs map efficiently to machine instructions. The language requires minimal run-time support.
    C++:
    Bjarne Stroustrup is the creator of C++. It is a statically typed, free form, multi-paradigm, compiled, general purpose programming language. It is one of the most popular programming languages. It is implemented on a wide variety of hardware and operating system platforms. C++ has a great influenced many other popular programming languages. Mostly notably C# and Java codes are influenced in C++.
    Java:
    Java was originally developed by James Gosling at Sun Microsystems and released in 1995. It is a general purpose, concurrent, class based, object oriented computer programming language. Java applications are typically compiled to class file that can run on any Java Virtual Machine. It is one of the most popular programming languages in use. The computer programs written in the Java language must run on any hardware of operating system platform.
    Jscript:
    Jscript is implemented as a Windows Script engine. It can be plugged in to any application that supports Windows Script. Jscript was first supported in the Internet Explorer 3.0 browser released in August 1996. The recent version of Jscript is 9.0 which included in the Internet Explorer 9. Jscript can also be called as Classic Jscript or Active Scripting Jscript which could be differentiated from .NET based versions.

  • Java is one of the most used programming language. It has a lot of advantages over other programming languages.
    It is object oriented
    It is platform independent. It can be used on any device.
    A lot of mobile apps are made using Java programming language.

  • There are many popular programming languages today like C, C++, JAVA, C# and java-script. All the languages have their own functions and their own importance. But the most widely used programming language is C which is also used in Linux programming and socket programming. These programming languages are used in developing websites and different operating systems for mobile and computers. A great example is Android operating system which is written in C++. Time to time changes are done in these programming languages according to the need of software developers. A successful programmer need to have good knowledge of maximum number of programming languages. This time the programming languages which are in great demand are C, C++ and JAVA. If you are from technical field of computers then you need to have knowledge of all the programming languages.
    Now I am giving a brief description about some programming languages:

    C:
    1. It is one of the programming language which is widely used in Computer Technology and we can say that C Programming is inspiration for development of other languages.
    2. It can be used for different purposes.
    3. C Programming provides low level features which are generally provided by the Lower level languages.
    4. Writing assembly language codes in C programming is quiet easy.
    5. C Programs can be run on any Compiler with little or no modification.
    6. C program's execution depends on the compiler and processor.
    7. It provides wide verity of Data Types, Functions and Control & Loop Control Statements.
    8. C Programs can be manipulated using bits, different operations can be performed at bit level.
    9. We can also manage memory representation at bit level.
    10. There are bit manipulation Operators also available and bit wise operators can be used to manage Data at bit level.
    11. It is more User friendly as compared to previous languages.
    12. C Programming is more effective language as it collected all useful features of previous languages.
    13. C Program Consist of Different Modules that are integrated together to form complete program.
    14. C Supports efficient use of pointer and pointers have direct access to memory.

    C++
    1.Bjarne Stroustrup in the 1980 at Bell Labs developed C++ programming language.
    2. Its name C++ is a combination of C and its increment operator ++, which adds 1 to the value of a variable.
    3. It is an extensive version of C programming language.
    4. It is interesting to know that every C program can be consider as C++ Program but reverse is not true.
    5. C++ supports structured programming and it has class in place of structure in C. It is fully Object Oriented Programming i.e
    -Encapsulation
    -Data Hiding
    -Inheritance
    -Polymorphism
    6. It is also called as "C with classes".
    7. It is the first and most popular also called as "C with classes".
    8. C++ is modified by Microsoft in order to support visual applications called "Visual C++".
    9. C++ is Statically typed, Free-form, Multi-paradigm, Compiled, General-purpose programming language and Intermediate-level language.
    10. C++ is further modified and standardize to "ANSI" version nearly in 2000 and most of its concepts are considered as basic concepts for "Java Programming".
    11. It makes programming more enjoyable for serious programmers.
    12. It is a general-purpose programming language that is a better C, supports data abstraction and supports object-oriented programming.

    Whatever the programming language you choose, you should have grip on the above two basic languages for better results. This is my opinion.
