Top Programming languages in 2021

We are living in a virtual world where new technologies and programming languages developed every day, in such a huge crowd it becomes very difficult to find the perfect technology to learn and get the best out of it.

Every programming language has some pros and cons. In this blog, you will get the right path to find the perfect programming language to learn this year.

So, let’s get started.

The top programming languages in 2021 are:-

  1. Dart

Now, let’s discuss the pros, cons, and uses of these languages.

1.Dart

Dart is the fastest-growing programming language, made by Google in Oct 10,2011.

It’s a client-optimized programming language for apps on multiple platforms. It is used to build mobile, desktop, server, and web applications.

Pros & Uses

  • Can make IOS and android app with the same code with Flutter.

Cons

  • Heavy codes.e.g.-An Android & IOS app made with the Dart is of minimum size ~4MB and 10MB respectively.

Javascript & Typescript

Javascript is the top used programming language of 2019 and 2020 in Github and StackOverflow projects. Whereas Typescript is a programming language (by Microsoft) made as an upgrade of Javascript.

It’s recommended to learn Javascript before learning typescript.

Pros & Uses

  • We Can make website Frontend(Javascript/Typescript) & Backend(NodeJS)

Cons

  • some beginners find it difficult to learn JS, So it’s the right language for beginners.

Kotlin (instead of Java)

Kotlin is a statically typed programming language for Java Virtual Machine (JVM) and JavaScript.In other words, It’s an upgrade of Java. Kotlin also introduces upgraded syntax and better expressions & abstractions.

It’s developed by Jetbrains in 22 July 2011.

Pros & uses

  • Used to make Android Apps, embedded systems, macOS (and iOS is coming soon).

Cons

  • As Kotlin is new so it’s less used in big/old companies.

C++

C++ was developed by Bjarne Stroustrup at Bell Labs in 1979. It’s a very popular language with a wide variety of uses.

Pros & Uses

  • A lot of jobs are available in C++.

Cons

  • Absence of Garbage collector

Python

Python is an interpreted, high-level, and general-purpose programming language. Created by Guido van Rossum and first released in 1991.

Pros & Uses

  • It’s easy, fast, and less coding required.

Cons

  • less useful on the client-side coding.

Rust

Rust is a multi-paradigm programming language focused on performance and safety, especially safe concurrency. Rust is syntactically similar to C++, but can guarantee memory safety by using a borrow checker to validate references.

Designed by Graydon Hoare on July 7, 2010.

Pros

  • Used in making game engines, operating systems, file systems, browser components, and simulation engines for virtual reality.

Cons

  • Unlike other “safe” programming languages, Rust does not use garbage collection.

C#

C# is widely used for developing desktop applications, web applications, and web services. But C++ code is much faster than C# code which makes it less useful.

But C# is mainly used in Game Development with Unity. So, if you want to be a Game Developer then # is the perfect language for you.

Conclusion

The best programming language depends on “Your practice on the language” and “your interest in many fields”.

Also, I recommend viewing the Github Survey and Stackoverflow Survey for a more deep understanding of the programming world.
