Hello everyone, welcome back to my blog! I hope you are having a good day! Today we are going to talk about the Programming languages you must know.

I assure you that this blog will help you a lot to choose a programming language to start with!

You would be surprised to see the second one! Because most of us think it’s a bit difficult but actually it is not.

Firstly, are you aware about the programming languages? Maybe yes or maybe no! So, what is programming language? What is code? Programming language is a formal language that mostly contains instructions for computer. Similarly, code is a set of instructions (algorithm) when implemented results in various output.




To begin with Javascript, it is one of the most popular programming languages, widely used as a scripting language for web pages. It is an interpreted computer programming language. Nowadays, it is impossible to imagine a software developer without learning JavaScript. The syntax is based on the C and Java languages.

Further, it is a light weight and a dynamic programming language mostly loved by the beginners. JavaScript is easy to learn and can add interactivity to a website or a web page. You can install it from any web browser like Microsoft edge, Google Chrome etc. and doesn’t need any special setup.

Once we complete learning JavaScript, we can develop front-end and back-end software using various frameworks like jQuery, Node.JS etc which are based on JavaScript.

  • Designed by                            : Brendan Eich
  • Difficulty level                         : Easy
  • Apps built using JavaScript     : Netflix, Facebook, LinkedIn, Candy crush, etc.
  • Extensions                              : .js



As I mentioned earlier, you must be surprised to see Python Programming language on number #2. Python was kept on number #5 in many surveys. But I will definitely make you believe that Python is one of the easiest programming languages as compared to others.

It is also an interpreted, object-oriented, high level and general-purpose programming language. The simplest syntax emphasizes readability and reduces the program maintenance cost.

You can design a website or a game using Python. Also the applications of Python are vast like machine learning, desktop GUI, artificial intelligence etc. You can install it from any web browser. Anyone who wants to learn coding can start with Python.

  • Designed by                            : Guido van Rossum(1980s)
  • Difficulty level                         : Easy
  • Apps built using Python         : Google, Instagram, Spotify, etc.
  • Extensions                              : .py


Java- Programming languages.

Java is a class-based programming language. It is used to let the programmers- Write Once, Run Anywhere (WORA). Which means that the java code once compiled can run on all platforms supporting Java.

It has been the ruling programming language from last 25 years.  It is 99% object-oriented and one of robust programming languages. Also, you can install it from any regular browser.

Chiefly used in building applications for navigation systems, smartphones, lottery terminals, etc. The syntax is based on C and C++.

  • Designed by                            : James Gosling (1995)
  • Difficulty level                         : Easy
  • Apps built using Python         : Google, Instagram, Spotify, etc.
  • Extensions                              : .java, .jar, .jpg

C++ is an extension for C language. It is a general-purpose programming language. The basic syntax and code of both the languages are almost same. Also, C++ includes everything included in C.

The main difference between C and C++ is C is procedural language and C++ is both procedural and object-oriented language. C does not support objects and classes.

C++ is used to develop Operating systems, browsers, games, etc. while C is used for scripting system application, which forms a major part of UNIX, Linux and Windows OS.

  • Designed by                            : C- Dennis Ritchie (1972)

                                                   C++ – Bjarne Stroustrup (1983)

  • Difficulty level                         : Hard
  • Apps built using Python         : Amazon, Youtube, Windows OS
  • Extensions                              : .c, .cpp


PHP- server-side scripting language.

Previously, PHP programming language was created for a purpose of Personal Home Page. But today it is taken over around 83% of websites globally.

PHP is an abbreviation for Hypertext Pre-processor. This server-side scripting language is used to develop web applications or dynamic websites. It is the most powerful as well as efficient than its competitors (MS ASP).

Before starting PHP, you must have some knowledge about HTML and CSS. It is one of the advanced programming languages. the syntax is generally based on C with some exceptions.

  • Designed by                            : Rasmus Lerdorf (1994)
  • Difficulty level                         : Easy
  • Apps built using Python         : Wikipedia, WordPress.
  • Extensions                              : .php
