ALEXIS KUPERFIS PRESENTS THE 3 PROGRAMMING LANGUAGES TO LEARN IN 2020
If you don't know how to code yet, 2020 is the year to learn. We live in the all-digital age, an age where programmers are modern heroes. Or anti-heroes like Elliott Alderson, a.k.a. Mr. Robot. But let's not dwell on our favorite TV shows of the year. Programming specialist Alexis Kuperfis introduces you to the three programming languages that you absolutely must master in 2020. Let's get started!
#1 Python: the must-have
A quick question to start: guess what YouTube, Instagram, Pinterest and SurveyMonkey have in common? Answer: they were all developed under Python. Python is undoubtedly one of the most popular programming languages in the world. Moreover, it is particularly accessible as a first learning language for beginners. What more could you ask for?
The strong point of Python? Its great versatility. Indeed, it can be used for Web and desktop applications, in addition to GUI (graphical user interface) applications, network servers, machine learning, data science... Python is also a large community of programmers, several libraries, modules and open source framework.
#2 Kotlin : the newcomer
This may be the first time you've heard of Kotlin, but you should know that Google's Android made it its first programming language. Since then, the popularity of Kotlin has skyrocketed. It must also be said that the language has also expanded its functionalities and manages to offer a dual orientation: object and functional. Kotlin appeared for the first time as a new language for Java Virtual Machine, so it is completely interoperable with Java.
This is one of the main reasons that led the Mountain View firm to officially adopt it for its Android OS. Will you do the same? In any case, we strongly recommend you to get started with Kotlin!
#3 Java: the classic
Whether or not you are in the development world, you will certainly have heard of Java. It's perhaps the world's best known programming language. The Java language was created by James Gossling in 1991, and has a JVM (Java Virtual Machine) function. Because of this feature, any program created in the Java language is automatically cross-platform compatible. In addition, Java is 99% object-oriented, and uses automatic space recovery and memory allocation. Strongly competed by Kotlin in recent years, in the opinion of Alexis Kuperfis, Java is still a must to learn in 2020!
