The 7 Most In-Demand Programming Languages

Python

Python was released more than a decade ago and was designed by Guido van Rossum, a Dutch programmer. It is a high-level programming language that is used as a ‘glue’ language to connect large existing software components. Also, its an object-oriented programming language that offer a vast collection of useful libraries and extension for developers and programmers.

Python is often described as simple and easy to learn, with a readable syntax that decreases the cost and time of program maintenance. This year, Python is skyrocketing with an increase of about 24% with 61,000 job postings compared to last year’s 46,000.

JavaScript

JavaScript is an object-based programming language created by an American technologist, Brendan Eich, and was inspired by Java. Unlike Java, JavaScript doesn’t create stand-alone apps or applets, it can only run on browsers and make them interactive. It can also change and update both HTML and CSS.

One of the advantages of using JavaScript is its speed. It runs immediately within the browser, and it also doesn’t need to be compiled on the client side. This year, JavaScript’s job posting didn’t change much at all, yet it’s still in the top three listings!
