10 Fastest Growing Programming Languages That Employers Demand In 2019

Figuring out which is the best programming language in an organisation can be a tough decision. With the evolution of new technologies, demand for sophisticated frameworks, languages, etc. have increased among the organisation. In this article, we list down the 10 fastest growing programming languages which are the most in-demand.

1| C#

C# or C Sharp was developed by Microsoft led by Anders Hejlsberg and his team within the .Net which is an open source developer platform for building various types of applications. In January 2019, the C# language team in Microsoft announced the release C#  8. 0 which includes new features such as new types and operators for collections manipulation, indexing, etc. It also has nullable reference types which help in preventing the ubiquitous null reference exceptions which have riddled object-oriented programming.

2| Julia

The Julia project was founded by Jeff Bezanson, Alan Edelman, Viral Shah, and Stefan Karpinski. The language aims to create an unprecedented combination of power, efficiency, etc. I also have some features such as user-defined types are as fast and compact as built-ins, no need to vectorize code for performance, designed for parallelism and distributed computation, efficient support for Unicode, including but not limited to UTF-8, etc. Julia Version 1.1 has been released recently with new features such as exception stack is maintained on each task to make exception handling more robust and enable root cause analysis, etc.

3| Golang

Go was developed by Robert Griesemer, Rob Pike, and Ken Thompson at Google which was launched in 2009 as an open source programming language. It is a flexible language and allows multiple processes running simultaneously, provides a rich standard library, reduced latency in the most recent versions of the garbage collector, etc. Recently, Go version 1.12 version was released which is processed on improving the debugging experience on optimised binaries.

4| Java

Java is one of the most widely used languages which was built with the philosophy of WORA (Write Once Run Anywhere). This popular language has some important features such as it is platform independent, fast, secure, large standard library, etc. The latest version is released in March 2019 which includes new features such as low pause-time garbage collector, switch expressions, JVM constants, microbenchmark suite, etc.

5| JavaScript

Initially, JavaScript had another name called LiveScript and was created to make web pages alive. Modern JavaScript is a safe programming language which does not provide low-level access to memory or CPU as it was initially created for browsers which do not require it. This language is able to add new HTML to the page, change existing content, etc., react to users actions, send requests over the network to remote servers, get and set cookies, etc. javaScript Version ECMAScript 2019 is going to be published this year in June.

6| TypeScript

TypeScript is a language for application-scale JavaScript. TypeScript adds optional types to JavaScript that support tools for large-scale JavaScript applications for any browser, for any host, on any OS. It basically compiles to readable, standards-based JavaScript. Recently, Microsoft released TypeScript 3.4 which includes a new feature called as “incremental” which aims to help the developers type-check and output changes to an existing project.

7| Python

One of the most widely used and popular languages, Python is a general, high-level language initially designed by Guido van Rossum. The programming language was developed for emphasis on code readability, and its syntax allows programmers to express concepts in fewer lines of codes. Python 3.7.3 was recently released on March 25th, 2019 which is a major release of this language and contains many new features.

8| Scala

Scala combines object-oriented and functional programming in one brief. The static types of this high-level language help in avoiding bugs in complex applications and its JVM and JavaScript runtimes which let you build high-performance systems with easy access to huge ecosystems of libraries. Scala 2.13.0 will be released shortly with new and interesting features.

9| R

R is a language and environment for statistical computing and computing. This language can be considered as a different implementation of S and provides a wide variety of statistical techniques such as linear and non-linear modelling, classical statistical tests, time-series analysis. Recently, R version 3.5.3 was released in March 2019.

10| Swift

The Swift language is one of the fastest growing programming languages because it makes easy to write software which is incredibly fast and safe by design. This general -purpose, multi-paradigm, compiled programming language is developed by Apple Inc. It includes modern programming patterns such as array indices are checked for out-of-bounds errors, integers are checked for overflow, error handling allows controlled recovery from unexpected failures, etc. Swift 5.0 was recently released in March 2019 which is a major release with several new features such as raw strings, checking for integer multiples, etc.
